Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in California
Each year, roughly 3,200 people lose their lives in collisions throughout the state of California. Around 500 of those killed are riding motorcycles at the time of their accidents. The fact that motorcyclists have very little padding protecting them in the event of an accident means that riders are more likely to suffer catastrophic and fatal injuries in accidents. After losing a loved one in an accident, families are often overcome with grief. There are far fewer things worse than losing a loved one. Knowing that your loved one lost their life as a result of another person’s negligence just makes the situation even more difficult to accept.
Not only are the mental and emotional consequences of fatal motorcycle accidents devastating, but families are also left to pay thousands of dollars on funeral expenses, inherit stacking medical bills, and deal with an array of financial burdens after experiencing a tragic loss. Although it can seem like no amount of compensation can ever make us feel whole again after enduring an unexpected and tragic loss, having financial resources available to cover the economic and non-economic damages we face moving forward can help to alleviate some of the stress associated families endure. In some cases, families are able to obtain compensation to help alleviate the costs of medical treatment, lost wages, funeral services, and various other expenses they endure after losing a loved one in a collision. Working with a wrongful death attorney in California will ensure you are able to maximize your recovery and move forward.
