A motorcycle accident can completely upend your life. If you are thinking about filing a lawsuit against the other driver or their insurance company to recover money for your losses, then you are probably wondering what to expect. The answer depends on the damages you have sustained. Our attorneys provide some key information below.
Potential Compensation in a Motorcycle Crash Claim
Damages are determined on a case by cases basis. For that reason, we are not able to tell you what your motorcycle accident injury claim might be worth without knowing your exact situation.
However, personal injury damage awards tend to include compensation for losses such as:
- Medical expenses: You can often get reimbursed for the cost of medical treatment associated with your accident. The care that you have already received, as well as the estimated cost of your future medical treatment, is almost always going to be covered.
- Lost wages: Your motorcycle accident injury may impact your ability to earn a living. You can often seek compensation for the income you have lost as well as the money you will likely lose in the future. The latter is referred to as your loss of earning capacity.
- Property damage: Crashes often leave motorcycles with extensive damage. Fortunately, you may be entitled to compensation for repairs or a replacement. Generally speaking, any clothes and items that were ruined in the collision can also be reimbursed.
- Pain and suffering: The toll of a motorcycle accident is not just financial. A serious wreck can have lasting effects on your emotional well-being and enjoyment of life.
It is important to approach initial insurance settlement offers with caution. These amounts may be much lower than what you deserve. Our attorneys can determine the true value of your case.
We invite you to view our verdicts and settlements. However, you should keep in mind that these results cannot be used to predict or guarantee the outcome of your personal injury case.
