Expressions of shock, such as "How?" and "Why?" and "If only," tend to find their way into the conversations of friends and family members right away after a fatal bike accident. Immediate family members are often at a loss as to what to do when a loved one dies in a Poughkeepsie fatal motorcycle accident.
Lawyers at Stenger, Roberts, Davis & Diamond have the experience necessary to help families move forward at a difficult time. Grief and shock can paralyze a husband, wife, mother, father, son or daughter. In the meantime, there are urgent matters to deal with:
- Planning and carrying out a funeral and burial
- Opening an estate and beginning to move an estate through probate
- Finding ways to cope without the income that the deceased motorcyclist had been contributing to the family
- Finding ways to live without other ways the motorcyclist contributed to family life
After a motorcycle accident, do not be surprised if police reports, insurance claims adjusters or even doctors seem to imply that the motorcyclist was automatically at fault. Bias against motorcyclists is prevalent in our society, even when accidents involving them were the fault of other motorists. A knowledgeable and zealous personal injury attorney can advocate for your family to ensure that laying false blame on your deceased family member does not hinder your claim for full and fair compensation.
It is not uncommon for claims adjusters to attempt to put the blame of the deceased in order to avoid paying out insurance benefits. Meanwhile, a family's financial difficulties and practical quandaries tend to get out of hand in a hurry. Stenger, Roberts, Davis & Diamond, is prepared to fight for you. We can help your family move forward with a strong claim for maximum available compensation through a claim for insurance benefits and/or a lawsuit against a negligent driver or another negligent party after a Poughkeepsie fatal motorcycle accident. Lawyers at our New York personal injury law firm offer free initial consultations.
