The 44-year-old was reportedly not wearing a helmet and was flown to University Medical Center in Las Vegas by helicopter. He was pronounced dead the next morning, but it was not clear what his injuries had been. The 94-year-old was treated at Western Arizona Regional Medical center for minor injuries, and the accident was still under investigation.
In situations where someone is killed while riding a motorcycle because of the negligence of another party, a wrongful death suit may be an option. Monies from these kinds of personal injury lawsuits can help the victim’s family deal with substantial medical bills and unexpected burial expenses, and family members may also be awarded compensation for loss of companionship. There are procedures that have to be followed and proof of financial loss that has to be shown, however, and a personal injury attorney can help guide grieving families through their options.
