Every year, there are thousands of fatalities to motorcyclists on the road. In fact, many people avoid riding a motorcycle due to the high fatality rate associated with them. Even so, nobody should have to give up a passion or their primary mode of transportation because of a fatality rate. Legislation on wrongful death regarding a motorcycle accident can help anyone who has lost a loved one seek the appropriate compensation. Generally speaking, a wrongful death on the road is considered a wrongful death when an individual has engaged in negligent actions that lead to the death of another person. This can be the case whether the driver is in a car, or on a motorcycle.

Many factors are considered negligent in a fatal motorcycle accident case. In some cases, the negligence is on the part of the motorcyclist, and in these cases surviving family members will not have a case for a wrongful death claim. If another party is found to be negligent, or receives charges in a fatal motorcycle accident, the family member left behind will have a stronger case for seeking wrongful death compensation against the negligent party.

A full investigation must be made on the accident in question in order to determine who if anybody was the negligent party. This investigation is often initiated by law enforcement who respond to the scene. As well, corresponding insurance companies involved may conduct their own investigation. A personal injury lawyer or Atlanta motorcycle accident lawyer can also conduct their own investigation to help the surviving family determine who the negligent party is that is responsible for their loved ones death.

Reckless driving, driver's error, speed, driving while intoxicated, and distracted driving are all factors that can lead to fatalities in a motorcycle accident. While these are just a few of the factors involved in preventable and forseeable motorcycle accidents, there are many other factors that could result in negligent driving that leads to a motorcyclist's untimely death. An Atlanta personal injury lawyer or wrongful death lawyer can help surviving family members in Atlanta understand their legal rights under Georgia law, and determine if they have a case for wrongful death as a result of a fatality in a motorcycle accident.
