July 10th, 2018

In some circumstances, these crashes can cause serious injuries, even death. When a fatality is involved, there are many important details to investigate as soon as possible on top of the emotional and financial stress. Bike accidents causing death can lead to a special form of case known as wrongful death.
If a person’s carelessness is responsible for someone else’s death, the law can hold them responsible. Family members may be entitled to recover damages such as: compensation for the deceased’s medical expenses, funeral and burial costs, pain and suffering, and lost wages and other important benefits.
