Motorcycle Accidents That Result In Death

Motorcycle accidents are more likely to be fatal than any other kind of accident, including plane crashes. The reason is obvious: the driver has next to no protection from an oncoming vehicle, from the road or from other stationary objects.

For this reason, the lawyers of The Gold Law Firm in Memphis, Tennessee, place special focus on compensation for family members who are survivors of fatal motorcycle accidents. We know that a crash on the highway hurts families in a number of ways:

  • The loss of a breadwinner
  • The loss of a companion
  • The loss of a caretaker
  • The loss of a beloved child
  • The misery and suffering of the victim prior to death
  • The misery and psychological suffering of survivors
  • Medical costs prior to death
  • Funeral and burial expenses

Wrongful death suits in Mississippi and Tennessee have special rules, including who has the standing to sue and what statutes of limitations apply.

Our approach is to meet with you only as necessary, to leave you alone while we go about the business of collecting damages.

Our experience says that financial compensation doesn't bring back the death — but it puts a seal of closure on a tragic event, and leaves you feeling that you stood up for what's right — and that the departed would approve.
