Since motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable to suffering fatal injuries in a traffic collision, it is unfortunately highly likely that a serious wreck will cost the motorcyclist their life. As a Dallas-Fort Worth personal injury lawyer, I know that in almost every motorcycle accident the rider and any passengers will suffer extremely serious injuries, which even if they do not kill them outright at the crash scene could result in painful and drawn out death at the hospital.
According to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), there were a total of 429 motorcycle operators and passengers killed in Texas accidents in 2010. Roughly half of those (56 percent) were not wearing helmets.
If someone you love was killed in a bike accident, it is important that you seek legal advice from a board certified wrongful death lawyer who is experienced in handling motorcycle cases in the North Texas area. A wrongful death claim allows you to make a claim for financial compensation against the insurance company of the negligent driver responsible for your deceased loved one’s wreck. While it might seem irrelevant to you to pursue such a claim, it is often necessary to do so. Winning a civil claim will not avenge your loss or bring back the person you lost, but it can often provide some sense of justice and closure.
Most importantly, pursuing a wrongful death claim ensures that your loved one’s passing will not have untold financial consequences for your family. Losing a spouse, parent or child is traumatic enough, but if you are not faced with additional financial burdens in the form of expensive medical bills and funeral costs, combined with the loss of any income they contributed to your household, their death could very likely have a devastating effect on you and the other immediate family members who survived them. You owe it to yourself and your family to make a wrongful death claim. Losing someone you cared for is suffering enough.
