Handling a wrongful death case that involves alternative transportation, like a motorcycle, bicycle, scooter, or pedestrian, involves looking into many of the same factors involved in car or truck accidents. That is, a good lawyer should look not only for insurance, but also at whether the at-fault driver was ‘on the clock’ for a company or business at the time of the collision. If appropriate, a good lawyer should also investigate roadway maintenance or product liability theories.
Handling cases about alternative transportation methods also involves finding all available insurance. Although many people don’t realize it, our auto insurance policies (both liability insurance and uninsured motorist insurance) can often be used to help victims of accidents that involve motorcycles, bicycles, scooters, or pedestrians.
