Help for Family after Fatal Semi Truck vs. Motorcycle Accident
If your loved one was killed while riding a motorcycle, our lawyers can help you. The first step is to determine if you have a wrongful death claim. This is a statutory claim, meaning state laws provide for this kind of compensation for families.
Compensation in a fatal crash may include medical expenses incurred prior to death, funeral expenses, loss of future income and loss of companionship and advice. The loss of companionship and advice is huge:
“In one heartbreaking case, our client, a mother with her young child, described receiving the call informing her that her husband was hit and killed by a semi truck while riding his motorcycle. The grief and fear for their future was overwhelming.
Not only was she instantly left with the responsibility of providing for her child, she was also coming to terms with her future – needing to make decisions alone in many areas, including day care, health insurance and investing for retirement.”
When a semi driver has taken the life of a person through negligent driving, he is responsible for the losses suffered. Other responsible parties may include the trucking company, the owner of the truck, the owner of the trailer, the owner of the freight and the maintenance company if maintenance is performed by a third party.
Our firm’s attorneys know how to present the unique aspects of this kind of accident case in order to obtain deserved compensation. They recently won $6 million on behalf of a family.

Fatal Semi Motorcycle Accident Investigation
When a semi driver gets a commercial license, he/she becomes responsible for obeying all of the state and federal regulations and driving in such a manner that control of the rig is maintained at all times.
Because trucking companies do everything possible to minimize their liability, you need an experienced attorney to fight for your rights. The trucking company and other liable parties need to be held accountable.
We will conduct an independent investigation into the collision, including visiting the scene of the crash, taking pictures at the scene, taking pictures of the vehicles and interviewing witnesses and first responders. We will also obtain the necessary trucking company papers and driver log books.
In most of our fatal semi truck crash cases, we hire specialists to reconstruct the accident. This visual presentation is very effective in building a persuasive, winning case.
