Can I File A Lawsuit On Behalf Of My Deceased Husband Who Died When A Car Turned Left In Front Of His Motorcycle?
We are deeply saddened to hear of your loss. But it does sound as if the other driver broke the law and failed to yield to your husband’s motorcycle that was traveling straight ahead. If this is the case and the other driver cut your husband off—even if the driver could or couldn’t see your husband’s motorcycle—and attempted to make a left turn when it was your husband’s right-of-way, then the other driver could be held liable.
The sad truth is that more than likely the motorcycle accident was preventable. Whether the other driver had poor eyesight, was distracted at the wheel, or was just driving too aggressively, the motorcycle accident didn’t have to happen. Because the other driver was negligent in some way, he or she should be held responsible for your losses and damages.
When a loved one dies, especially a breadwinner, you and your family need to be compensated accordingly. This means that you should receive a financial recovery not only for your medical expenses and lost income, but you should also receive compensation for funeral expenses, future lost wages, and loss of companionship among other damages.
