Motorcycle Death Compensation: How do I claim compensation for my husband who was killed when a car collided with his motor bike?
Motorcycle death compensation: My husband was on the M6 travelling between Manchester and Birmingham in England when his motor bike was hit by a car at high speed which caused his death. The car driver has accepted that the RTA was his fault.
I have two children under the age of 10 years and my husband provided the income for the household.
I would like to know whether I am entitled to motorcycle death compensation and if so what my children and I can claim.
