Fatal Michigan Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Fatal Motorcycle AccidentsWhen a motorcyclist or bike passenger is killed in a fatal Michigan motorcycle accident because of the negligence of a driver or other motorcyclist, the surviving family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault driver.  Under the Michigan’s Wrongful Death Statute, specific family members and heirs of the accident victim can claim money damages to compensate them for their loss.  Damages for these claims include the pain and suffering endured by the decedent prior to death, the loss of society and companionship of the surviving family members, and loss of income and support to the family.

In many circumstances, a survivor’s loss claim can also be made in connection with the case.  This is a claim for Michigan No-Fault Insurance benefits and seeks payment for lost income, medical expenses, and funeral expenses.  These claims are separate from the wrongful death benefit and can also be substantial compensation for the family.
