Any fatal accident is a cause of sorrow for surviving family members. They do not need to be told that the death was the fault of their loved one because he or she, while lawfully traveling on streets and highways as other motorists were doing, was on a motorcycle. Yet that is precisely the message that is often spoken after motorcycle accidents. At the Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd, P.A., we do not allow our clients or their loved ones to be judged in this way without evidence.
Fatal motorcycle accidents, like any traffic fatalities, are sometimes the fault of the motorcyclist — and often are not. Drivers of cars, trucks and buses often fail to yield right of way to motorcycle riders, cutting them off or forcing them off the road. Later, they claim that they did not see the motorcycle, although it was traveling lawfully on the street or highway.

If you lost a husband, wife, mother, father, son or daughter in a motorcycle accident in North Carolina or in a neighboring state, you have our sincere sympathy. Beyond sympathy, however, we have knowledge and skills to offer that may help bring financial justice to your family. No amount of money can compensate for the death of a family member, but proper compensation can help you cover medical, funeral and burial costs, replace lost wages that the deceased motorcyclist used to contribute to the family, and acknowledge the pain and suffering of the surviving family.
