My husband was killed in a motorcycle crash in Los Angeles. He was riding his Harley when he was hit head-on by a semi truck. It appears as though the trucker caused the accident. Can I pursue compensation? If so, who would be liable, the trucker or the trucking company?

We are so sorry to hear about your loss.  What a devastating time you are going through.

Depending on the cause of the accident, you may be able to file a California wrongful death lawsuit to recover damages.  The trucker or trucking company could be liable, but we would need to review the details of your case to determine the cause of the collision.

A successful wrongful death claim could entitle you to compensation for future financial support, funeral and burial expenses, reasonable value of household services, loss of the victim’s love, loss of the enjoyment of sexual relations and loss of gifts or benefits.
