Liability for Motorcycle Accidents
When a fatal collision involves a motorcyclist, police will interview all surviving parties involved and try to piece together what happened based on their side of the story, witness accounts and evidence at the scene. However, it’s important to have an independent attorney conduct a secondary investigation into what happened. While criminal charges could be filed in cases for example were drugs and or alcohol involved, a victim or their family must separately make a claim for a civil lawsuit. This would compensate them for financial losses such as medical bills and loss of income.
