“Motorcycle accident victims who sustain injuries at the expense of a negligent motorist are entitled to a personal injury lawsuit, where they may receive compensation for damages. However, in cases where another motorist or entity’s negligence results in another person’s death, surviving family members are entitled to a wrongful death lawsuit following the loss of their loved one,” said Candice Bond, Managing Partner of Bond Sanchez-Gordon. “While no amount of money can replace a lost loved one, the importance of contacting and retaining a wrongful death lawyer cannot be stressed enough. It is our duty to assist families whose lives have been suddenly impacted. Our goal is to help those affected to ultimately, once again, establish a sense of normalcy after an untimely death.”
