By King Law Firm on January 18, 2013

TX Fatal Motorcycle AccidentHundreds of motorcycle riders are killed in Texas each year. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, 479 motorcycle riders were killed in Texas in the year 2011. A wrongful death is a legal term involving the death of someone caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing.

The family of someone who has been killed in a Texas motorcycle accident would be well advised to discuss their legal rights and options with a skilled Austin motorcycle crash lawyer. A knowledgeable attorney will work with investigators to determine if the victim’s family has a valid wrongful death claim.

There are a number of factors that could affect a Texas motorcycle wrongful death claim. Was a car or truck driver partially responsible for the collision? Was the at-fault driver exceeding the speed limit, driving distracted, or behaving carelessly? Was one of the drivers involved under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol? Did the accident result from a hazardous roadway condition? Did the motorcycle crash involve a defective motorcycle part or mechanical malfunction? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, financial compensation may be available for the victim’s family.

A wrongful death claim can result in monetary support for all of the losses suffered by the victim’s spouse, children, parents, or other potential claimants. A successful wrongful death claim can result in compensation for funeral bills, lost future wages, pain and suffering, medical expenses, and other related damages.
