I am Gerald Schwab I have helped many hundreds of people recover for accidents and injuries sustained in accidents.  If a loved one has died after a devestating motorcyle accident you will be upset and confused.  We can help you through this time and get you the compensation you may need.  

Below I will discuss how these type of accidents are usually handled.

INVESTIGATION

The agency that conducts the investigation depends on where the accident occured.  If the fatality occured in the city then the local police agency or sheriffs department will handle the investigation.  If the fatality occurred on a Highway then the California Highway Patrol will conduct the investigation.  The CHP will conduct the investigation. 

MOTORYCYLE ACCIDENT STATISTICS

According to data provided by the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration (NHTSA), motorcyle fatalities occured twenty-seven times more often than deaths in other vehicles.  Approximately 4,586 bilers lost there lives in traffic colllisions in 2014 alone.  

INJURIES AND DEATHS RESULTING FROM MOTORCYLE ACCIDENTS

A motorcyle accident has the potential to cause serious injuries to a biker, ranging from bone fracture and spinal cord injury to internal organ trauma and brain injury.   A victim who has suffered any of these type of injuries can undergo a long period  of rehabilitation that oftentimes compounded by the mounting medical bills and financial losses.  If a wrongful death is caused by the negligence of another party in a motorcyle accident, the family of the victim may recover for the following damages:

loss of affection, consortium, comofort and moral support

loss of inheritance

future financial support loss

funeral and burial expenses

household service loss

loss of parental care, training, and guidance

There is a strict limit on the time in which parties directly related to the deceases may file a wrongful death claim in California.  The statute of limitations is two years from the date of the individuals passing. If a government entity is involved, the time to file may be drastically reduced.  An Attorney with years of experience can guide a family through the process of filing a claim against the party responsible for their loved ones wrongful death.   

I am an Attorney that along with the Attorneys that I work with can handle your case as we have done many times before. Check out my reviews on avvo, yelp, google and elsewhere.
