Motorcycle Accidents and Wrongful Death

Motorcycle Accidents and Wrongful Death

Here at the California Attorney group, we know that riding a motorcycle can offer a unique and freeing experience. Unfortunately, it can also be extremely dangerous. Seated on top of an open engine balanced on two wheels, traveling at high speed down the busy streets of Los Angeles and Riverside, many riders and their passengers will experience accidents. Lacking a steel frame, glass and aluminum to provide a shield from debris, water, wind and from other vehicles, the rider is left with only whatever they may be wearing to offer them protection—not to mention the helmet required by California State law. And because motorcyclists are not required to use restraining belts, they may easily find themselves ejected from their seats at high speeds, and can find themselves thrown directly into a variety of hazards.
With this in mind, it’s easy to imagine that due to the neglect, or even the intent, of other drivers, pedestrians, or even of poorly maintained infrastructure, riders may be killed. While criminal charges may be applicable in such a situation, the family members surviving the deceased may also be entitled to damages due to Wrongful Death. The California Motorcycle Attorney team at California Attorney Group can help determine and fight for the financial damages lost from missing support or services the deceased can no longer provide, as well as medical and funeral costs resulting from their death, and even applicable non-economic losses.
But while you may deserve compensation for all of these losses, there’s no guarantee that a jury will reward them to you. In fact, you need to make sure that you are represented by someone with the legal experience and technical knowledge necessary to make sure that you are awarded all that you can expect to receive under the law. If you’ve been in a Los Angeles or Riverside motorcycle accident, then the legal team at California Attorney Group will be able to determine both the economic and non-economic extent of your losses. For immediate conseling on your individual case, contact us today at (866) 650-0505.
Determining financial, or pecuniary, loss can easily become a complicated issue. Many factors, such as the deceased’s income, work history, age and health will be used to determine the financial value of the deceased to their family. Although this can be determined by the jury, proper legal representation—like that with the California Attorney Group—will use their legal and technical expertise in arguing and present evidence attesting to the value of the deceased and maintain the integrity of their financial and non-financial worth. If you’ve lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, it is important that you do not lose your financial stability as a result of the accident. Get in touch with The California Attorney Group at (866) 650-0505.
Beyond Pecuniary damages, Punitive damages may be sought in cases of malicious intent. This can be thought of punishment in lieu of, or even in conjunction with, criminal proceedings—yet pecuniary damages are still considered civil, rather than criminal, cases. The punishment, in this case, is financial punishment, awarded to the surviving family of the deceased. If a loved one or member of your family has been killed in a motorcycle accident in Riverside, Corona, Lake Elsinore, Palm Springs or Los Angeles, then California law permits punitive actions to be taken against a malicious offender in a wrongful death case. The limit to the amount awarded in punitive damages is usually considered in relation to the amount rewarded for financial damages.
If you live in Los Angeles or Riverside and believe that a loved one has died in a motorcycle accident due to the neglect or intent of another party, do not hesitate to contact the California Attorney Group today at (866) 650-0505, or online at CaMotorcycleAttorney.com.
