Who can sue for a motorcycle accident injury or death?

  1. The motorcycle operator can sue for injuries. If the operator dies because of their injuries, then their survivors can sue for damages in a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault party or parties.
  2. The passenger can sue the motorcycle operator for injuries if the operator was at fault for the crash. The passenger can sue any other party who was responsible for the crash. If they are killed in the accident, their survivors can pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.
