Fatal Motorcycle Accidents

Wrongful Death Attorney in Irvine

Ever since the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) began recording motorcycle crash statistics in 1975, the number of fatal motorcycle accidents each year has remained somewhat consistent. In other words, motorcycle safety technology has not improved and riders remain at a significant risk of injury. In fact, despite only making a small percent of vehicles on American roads, motorcycles are involved in about 13% of all vehicle fatalities.

If you have lost a loved one to a fatal motorcycle accident, it is already too late to improve motorcycle safety standards. You can and should, however, consider pursuing your legal options to sue for compensation and closure. If you believe that your loved one lost their life due to another party’s negligence, contact The Law Offices of Thomas E. Rockett and our Irvine wrongful death attorney today.

Motorcycle Accident Causes & Liable Parties

Motorcyclists are often completely reliant on other motorists, who are controlling much larger vehicles, to keep them safe. When a driver is negligent, willfully or unintentionally, they can be the direct cause of a fatal motorcycle accident.

Negligent actions of motorists that cause fatal crashes include:

After a fatal motorcycle accident has occurred, it can be difficult for surviving family members to know who is liable. The scene of the crash may have clues that point towards accountability but discovering and properly analyzing them requires the attention of a professional investigator. In the end, there could be multiple parties who are liable for what happened.

You may need to consider bringing a wrongful death lawsuit against:

  1. Other motorists who were driving recklessly.
  2. Motorcycle part manufacturers who created defective parts.
  3. Government entities who have failed to provide safe roads.
