Wrongful Death

When a Utah motorcycle operator is killed because of the negligence of another motorist, his or her family is entitle to sue the responsible party in a lawsuit for wrongful death.  If the responsible party’s negligence can be proven, the victim’s family members are entitled to damages resulting from the death.  Such damages include expenses acquired from the death of the victim, loss of anticipated earnings, loss pension and insurance benefits, loss of companionship, pain and suffering, and other types of damages.

An example of a wrongful death lawsuit would be if the driver of a car was negligent in his/her driving and caused an accident resulting in a motorcyclist’s death.  So, if a car suddenly switched lanes recklessly without checking his blind-spot, crashing into and killing a motorcyclist, the victim’s family is entitled to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
