How can a lawyer help in a wrongful death motorcycle accident case?

Most motorcycle accidents involve a passenger vehicle and a motorcyclist. While drivers are used to watching other vehicles on the road, they don’t always watch motorcyclists in the same way. This is especially true for motorcyclists who split from lanes. Collisions can occur when drivers fail to yield to motorcyclists, drive above the posted speed limit, fail to check blind spots for motorcyclists, and other reckless driving behaviors. A motorcyclist can sustain some of the most catastrophic injuries on the spectrum when a careless motorist is on the road. In other situations, loss of life may result.

Surviving family members should consult an experienced Martinez motorcycle accident attorney if they have lost a loved one in this type of incident. A lawyer will review the facts and circumstances of the case with the survivors and explain to them their right to seek financial compensation for their loss. If they have a potential case, an accident attorney will begin an independent investigation and gather the necessary evidence to prove the wrongful death. An attorney will also work to determine all potential sources of financial recovery, including the liable party’s insurance policy and that of the deceased.
