Motorcyclists (and, if applicable, passengers) who have been injured or killed due to negligence of another person (or entity) often file a lawsuit regarding the accident. A personal injury lawsuit – or wrongful death lawsuit if a fatality has occurred – can yield a wide range of compensation. This level of compensation depends upon many different factors, including the characteristics of the underlying accident as well as the severity and permanence of the accident injuries.
