Properly Valuing Your Motorcycle Accident Claim
An important part of handling a motorcycle accident claim is determining its full and fair value. While it is true that there is no amount of money that could possibly “compensate” a person for suffering a catastrophic injury or losing a loved one in a motorcycle collision, recovering a fair settlement or award can go a long way in bringing a victim peace of mind and helping him or her face a more stable future.
In valuing a claim, our motorcycle accident attorneys in , investigators, and support staff will:
- Carefully review all medical records, bills, and documents to ascertain the physical impact the accident has had and will have on your life.
- Determine how much work you missed and how your injuries have influenced and will continue to influence your ability to earn a living.
- Consider the emotional impact of your injuries or loss, such as pain and suffering, loss of companionship, and loss of enjoyment of life.
- Analyze damage to your motorcycle to determine repair or replacement costs, taking into account aftermarket parts or modifications.
Once we have determined your claim’s fair value, we can work to negotiate a settlement or fight for a jury award in civil court.
What is the Number One Cause of Motorcycle Accidents?
The number one cause of motorcycle accidents is other motorists failing to spot a motorcyclist in traffic, whether while making an unprotected left-hand turn, changing lanes, passing other vehicles, or failing to stop in time. Because motorcyclists have a much smaller profile than other motorists on the road, if a driver isn't paying attention and accident can occur very easily.
Other common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Drunk driving
- Aggressive or reckless driving
- Distracted driving
- Lane splitting
- Colliding with fixed objects
- Road hazards including loose gravel or dirt
