Motorcycle Accident Settlements KOA
Were you or a loved one injured in a motorcycle accident? If so, you may be entitled to legal compensation.
After a motorcycle accident, you should never have to wonder how you’ll be able to afford or cover your injuries or damages. Unfortunately, in many cases, victims will face unexpected medical bills, lost wages, and other damages—all while trying to get back to their normal lives. And without proper representation, many victims will often find themselves ill-informed or mistreated by their insurance company when the time comes to file a claim for damages.
At Morgan & Morgan, we believe everyone should be well-informed of their options and have a fair chance at representation after an accident. While every motorcycle accident settlement is different, the following may help answer any questions you have while navigating through this process.
How Much Is My Motorcycle Accident Settlement Worth?
While there is no fixed amount a victim may receive and your accident case details determine the outcome of your settlement, typically successful plaintiffs can see a return to cover their damages. In order to receive compensation for your injuries, insurance companies will look into the following aspects of your accident.
- Lost Wages: After a motorcycle accident, you may be left unable to perform basic tasks at work, either due to doctor's appointments or hospital stays. If your accident limited your ability to earn a paycheck, you may be entitled to compensation for your lost wages.
- Pain and Suffering: A motorcycle accident can result in emotional trauma that may stay with you for years, or even last a lifetime. Pain and suffering compensation may include but are not limited to: loss of consortium, depression, long-term medical treatment, and limited ability due to your injuries.
- Wrongful Death: When the unthinkable happens, those left behind may be faced with a slew of financial burdens. After a wrongful death, monetary compensation granted to loved ones will help ease or even cover leftover bills or any funeral expenses.
- Medical Expenses: After a motorcycle accident, you will most likely need to seek medical care. This can include an ambulance ride, hospital stay, and doctor visits. However, your medical care may not end there. Depending on your injuries, you may require ongoing medical attention, which can cost thousands of dollars.
