A motorcycle accident case shouldn’t be treated like a car accident case. There are some unique aspects to motorcycle accidents case. You’ll need a lawyer who understands all the ins, outs, and complications that can arise.
Motorcycle accidents rarely result in minor injuries. Often the injuries can be life altering, and can involve paralysis, brain damage, or a lifetime of chronic pain. It’s not unusual for us to work with clients who have lost income, or even their capacity to earn an income at all.
If the driver of the passenger vehicle that struck you was negligent then you’re entitled to compensation. This money is meant to cover:
- Your medical bills, including bills for rehabilitative care that Medicare can’t cover.
- Your pain and suffering. This can include compensation for any counseling or psychiatric care you might need.
- The loss of your income or earning capacity.
In some cases, you may also receive punitive damages in cases where the driver’s behavior was particularly egregious.
What makes Motorcycle Accident Cases Complex?
There are two reasons why motorcycle accidents case requires an experienced lawyer with experience litigating these kinds of cases.
The first is the extent and severity of the injuries involved. There are very few minor motorcycle accidents. This means there’s a lot more money at stake, which means the insurance company is going to fight a lot harder to keep you from recovering the funds you need to get back on your feet.
The second is cultural. Many people believe riders are reckless, and this can impact your case. It can make it easier for the insurance company to blame you for the accident, or to assign a percentage of fault that’s high enough to slice your recovery funds to the bone.
