What Is the Average Compensation for a Motorcycle Accident?

Posted on

Accidents range widely in terms of the damage caused and the amount of compensation to which you might be entitled. While a simple accident with minimal damage might seem low in cost, minor damage at the moment can lead to major damage in the long term. Connecting with an attorney like Luschas, Naparsteck, and Crane, LLP, is your best shot at recovering your full damages and moving on with your life. Read on to learn about how motorcycle accident compensation works and how we can help.

Motorcycle Accident Compensation Can Vary Widely From Accident-to-Accident

The broad variation in the prospective damages that you might recover as a result of your motorcycle accident underlines the value of consulting with an experienced motorcycle accident attorney like Luschas, Naparsteck, and Crane. According to the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration, there were some 5,014 motorcyclist deaths in 2019 alone. While death may result in a wrongful death action, as discussed below, the range of injuries that might happen is also very broad. Compensation for a motorcycle accident generally includes medical bills, damage to your property and may include emotional damages.

Understanding the nature of your accident, the parties at fault, and how to pursue your damages is important to recover your damages, and an attorney with motorcycle accident litigation experience can be of great value to you in this regard.

If a Member of Your Family Was Lost to a Motorcycle Accident, You May Have a Case

If you have lost a loved one to a motorcycle crash, a wrongful death lawsuit may be available to you. Such a lawsuit includes compensation for the loss of your loved one and their companionship and may include recovery of the earnings they would have made in their lifetime were it not for the wrongful death. Accidents that lead to death are tragic and in an ideal world would never happen, but the roads of America can be very dangerous for motorcyclists, as you know.

Seek Out a Medical Evaluation to Determine the Extent of Your Injuries

Being in an accident can be extremely stressful, as can be the weeks following the accident as you try to handle related repairs, injuries, and legal action. Following an accident, it is normal to have soreness and to feel less than your best self, but the stress of the accident may result in actual injury being overlooked and instead thought to be something as simple as soreness. The report of the on-site emergency medical professional at the accident is important evidence, as is a follow-up examination with a physician.

According to the recent book “Contemporary Management of Temporomandibular Disorders,” the stress associated with an accident may enhance the delay in pain following the accident. Seeing a medical professional is the best way to ensure that you do not overlook injuries that might not emerge until after you’ve completed your case related to the accident, leaving you to foot the bill.
