We’re here to help. Your entire case could hinge on a skillful presentation of evidence, testimony, and medical information that tells your story.
What Makes Motorcycle Accident Injury Cases Unique?
Because motorcycles offer comparatively less protection for their operators than cars or trucks, motorcycle riders are more likely to be seriously injured in an accident.
Motorcycle riders are not required to have no-fault insurance coverage. This puts them at risk of paying for their medical expenses through their private health insurance and/or out of pocket. These two facts in combination make it critically important for injured motorcyclists to hire an experienced Personal Injury attorney.
Who Can I Sue for Motorcycle Accident Injuries?
Motorcycle accidents are most often caused by some form of driver error, in which case the at-fault driver may be held financially responsible for your injuries. However, in some instances property owners who fail to maintain safe conditions and/or manufacturers of defective vehicle components can be held liable if their actions have resulted in an accident.
How Much is a Motorcycle Accident Injury Claim Worth?
Generally speaking, the more severe the injuries, the larger the settlement. Factors that play into the size of a settlement may include:
-Rehabilitation and physical therapy
-Lost wages and/or lost future earning capacity
-Pain and suffering
-Diminished quality of life
