When recklessness or carelessness results in a fatal accident, the negligent parties should be held accountable for the death and destruction which result. The law office of Choulos Choulos & Wyle represents the families of motorcycle riders and bicyclists who were killed in traffic accidents. Whether your loved one was killed as the result of a driver who wasn't paying attention, a defective bike, or a defectively designed highway, we will fight for full and fair compensation for your loss. While no amount of money can compensate for the death of a husband, father, or other family member — a financial settlement or verdict can help secure your family's financial future and allow you to move forward with your life.
Working with investigators, our wrongful death attorneys work with investigators and other experts to reconstruct the scene of the accident and determine what factors contributed to the death of a motorcycle rider or cyclist. While a fatal injury can often occur as the result of a motorist running a traffic light, improperly changing lanes, or simply ignoring traffic laws, dangerous road conditions can also contribute to a fatality. In order to determine why an accident happened, our lawyers meticulously investigate each case, using experts in a wide variety of fields.
If you're uncertain whether you have a wrongful death case involving a motorcycle or biking accident, contact the law office of Choulos Choulos & Wyle today. We'll evaluate your case and discuss the legal options available to you.
Causes of Motorcycle and Biking Fatalities
Although a fatal injury can be caused in any number of ways, most biker deaths are caused by:
- Drunk driving
- Failure to yield
- Excessive speeding
- Reckless endangerment
- Dangerous road conditions
- Driving under the influence
- Defective / failed bike components
- Left / right turns through intersections
Demanding Accountability and Compensation
When someone who has had too much to drink gets behind the wheel or when a city ignores a dangerous pothole, they must be held accountable when others lose their lives as a result. Because a moment's negligence can take away a spouse, parent, sibling, or cherished friend, many lives are harmed by the reckless actions of others. When looking at the impact of a wrongful death on a family, we work with economists to determine the value of lost earnings and benefits; loss of support, companionship and guidance; funeral and burial expenses; and emotional pain and suffering.
