Wrongful Death Claims
It may be possible to file a claim in civil court if your loved one has been killed in a motorcycle accident. At Inland Empire Motorcycle Law, we can evaluate the circumstances surrounding your case and determine your eligibility for legal action. Though you may be unsure of what steps to take, we can assure you that if legal action is possible, we will work diligently on your behalf so that you can mourn in peace. We understand how trying a situation like this can be and our aim is to make the process as easy as possible on you and your family.
Filing a Wrongful Death Claim - Typically, only spouses, domestic partners, or dependents can file a wrongful death claim in the event of a loved one's death. In some cases, particularly if the victim is under 18 years of age, the parents of the deceased may also be able to file a claim. If the deceased has no offspring and no spouse, the party or parties that would otherwise inherent his or her estate may be able to file a wrongful death claim; this may include siblings, cousins, or aunts and uncles. We can determine whether you are able to file a claim.
Establishing Liability - The successful outcome of all civil claims is dependent on establishing liability. First, it must be determined which party is at fault; then it must be established that he or she acted negligently. If it can be proven that the defendant failed to abide by a reasonable standard of duty, we can hold him or her accountable for damages. We have more than 16 years of experience establishing liability in motorcycle accident cases through motorcycle accident investigation and reconstruction, and are uniquely able to handle such claims.
Potential Damages - If your loved one was killed as a result of another party's negligence, you can hold that party accountable. At our Orange County practice, we can help you file a wrongful death suit and obtain fair and just compensation. Compensatory damages are monies rewarded to compensate the victim or victims for expenses incurred as a result of the accident. This can include financial compensation for medical costs, funeral costs, and property damage or compensation for pain and suffering. If the deceased was a bread winner in the family, the spouse or children of the deceased can also file a claim for loss of wages, including loss of future wages. In rare cases, it may also be possible to receive punitive damages, which are monies rewarded as a means of punishing the negligent party for his or her actions.
