Wrongful Death

A wrongful death is typically defined as a death that is caused by the recklessness or negligence of another person. A wrongful death lawsuit is an attempt to get compensation for those left behind, including spouses, children or parents of a minor, after a close loved one passes away because of someone else’s fault.

Motorcyclists and cars are expected to share the road and respect each other’s rights and boundaries. Unfortunately, cars and trucks often fail to look out for motorcyclists—resulting in tragic accidents. If your loved one was a motorcyclist who was killed in an accident with a motor vehicle, and that accident was a direct result of negligence or recklessness of the other driver, it may be possible to recover compensation for your loved one’s death. Contact the Dietrich Law Firm P.C., recognized as a Best Law Firm of America, today at 716-839-3939 to discuss with our team of Buffalo, New York wrongful death trial lawyers whether you may be eligible to file a claim.

In order to prove a wrongful death, it must be clear that the other driver owed a duty to other drivers on the road and that his or her breach of that duty resulted in the fatal motorcycle accident. For example, drivers of all vehicles have the following duties when they take to the road:

  1. They must adhere to all traffic safety laws and rules of the road, including obeying traffic signs and following the speed limit;
  2. They must respect the rights of other drivers, including right-of-way;
  3. They must be both mentally and physically capable of driving their vehicle in a safe manner;
  4. They must have the appropriate license required to operate their vehicle; and
  5. They must use reasonable efforts to avoid an accident on the road.

Failure to accomplish these duties is considered breaching the duties of a driver. When someone breaches their duty and the breach results in a fatal accident, they may be liable in a wrongful death lawsuit. Some examples of breaching a duty that may result in an accident with motorcyclist include:

  1. Speeding on slick road conditions, resulting in a loss of control of a vehicle and a rear-end collision or head-on collision;
  2. Failing to check blind spots and a vehicle’s surroundings prior to merging or changing lanes; and
  3. Getting behind the wheel while under the influence of alcohol.
