Q

What is my motorcycle accident injury claim worth?

A

While we would like to provide you with a quick answer, determining the value of a motorcycle accident claim—or any injury claim for that matter—is a more lengthy and complicated process. Because every accident injury claim is unique and is dependent on the seriousness of the crash and the extent of the injuries involved, every case’s worth will be different.

Before determining the value of your case, many factors will be evaluated, such as:

  • The type of injury
  • Disfigurement
  • Limited function
  • Permanent disability
  • Surgical costs
  • Physical therapy expenses
  • Ongoing medical care
  • Lost income

For example, if you sustained a permanent injury that will never fully go away, your accident injury claim will be worth more than someone’s who will heal within six months. If a motorcycle accident on Highway 75 caused you the inability to drive, work, or take care of yourself—either temporarily or permanently—an accident claim should be pursued to the fullest.

You may be entitled to damages for your pain and suffering, medical treatment, future medical care, lost income, future lost wages, and loss of the enjoyment of life, among other damages. However, the insurance company isn’t just going to hand over a large check. The goal of an insurance adjuster is to save the company money by settling claims for the lowest amount of money possible.

In order to get the maximum compensation possible for your accident injury claim, you should work with a personal injury lawyer. As motorcycle accident attorneys, we would be happy to answer your additional questions and explain your legal options in a free consultation.
