How much is my motorcycle accident case worth?
I spoke with someone who was on the back of a motorcycle and was injured significant as a result of someone else’s negligence when they turned in front of the motorcycle. One of the questions she had was, “What’s the value of my motorcycle accident case?” Some of the factors we look at in determining a fair value of a motorcycle case include the extent of the injury. If you’ve been in a motorcycle accident, there’s a very good chance that you sustained very serious injuries – whether it’s fractures, herniated disks, or tears to different parts of your body – and you may need surgery in a number of places. That care is expensive, and we would want to look at the cost of that care and make sure that you obtain the appropriate care.
With these serious injuries in motorcycle accidents, there’s going to continue to be problems in the future. So in determining the fair value of a motorcycle case, we have to get that information as well from the doctor. Are you going to need therapy in the future? Are you going to need more surgeries in the future? Are you going to have permanent disfigurement or permanent injuries? We’ll work with the appropriate medical professionals, who will obtain MRIs and x-rays, to document that information and provide that information to the insurance company.
The next thing is missing work. We have to document and make sure we make a claim for all those lost wages, both the lost wages that occurred from the day of the accident and those in the future. If this injury from this motorcycle accident means you can’t do your job anymore, and you have to change jobs or go to some other type of employment arrangement altogether, we have to make sure that we recover that for you.
The last part is the pain and suffering and non-economic damages, like loss of enjoyment of life, that you’re going to live with for the rest of your life. While those are difficult to value, they’re very important to most people, how an accident, and a motorcycle accident specifically, impacts their life.
