Tragedy can strike at any time. However, when motorcycles are involved, it always seems to strike sooner than expected. Such was the case in an accident that left a 53-year-old motorcycle driver dead on I-95. According to witnesses, the motorcycle was driving south on I-95, in the early morning hours. A car, also driving south, rear-ended the motorcycle, throwing the rider to the road. He was pronounced dead on reaching the hospital.
The driver of the car will have to live with her actions for the rest of her life. However, this is certainly not a situation that is good for the family of the motorcyclist killed. Wrongful death is never easy to handle, particularly when it is caused by the negligence of another person, rather than by some random accident. However, a Ft. Lauderdale wrongful death suit can at least begin to give the family some amount of closure and can help offset financial losses due to the death of the rider.
A wrongful death case will require the help of a skilled attorney, though. Not just any attorney can prosecute such a case, as it requires considerable skill in the area of auto accidents, as well as in wrongful death to successfully try one of these cases. For families, this means that they need to research the best attorney for their needs. Often, the respect of the attorney’s peers in the industry can be taken as a good sign. Another sign that an attorney might be a good choice is a long list of satisfied clients.
With the help of such an attorney, the family of the victim can begin gathering the shattered pieces of their life and moving on to some semblance of normalcy. Any financial benefit from the case can be put toward offsetting the medical bills incurred, as well as the reduced cash flow the family must suffer due to the death.
