What Damages Can I Claim After a Motorcycle Accident Injury?
If your injuries were sustained in a motorcycle accident caused by another driver, you may be wondering how much your motorcycle accident injury claim is worth.
Depending on the circumstances of your claim, you may be entitled to the following damages after a motorcycle accident:
- Medical expenses
- Motorcycle repairs or total loss compensation
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Punitive damages
How are Damages in a Motorcycle Accident Injury Claim Calculated?
Some damages in a motorcycle accident injury claim are capable of exact calculation. These include bills, repairs, and lost wages.
Other damages—such as pain and suffering—are not easily quantifiable. Many states classify pain and suffering damages under non-economic or general damages. These are determined by the injury type and how much pain it caused; however, there is no one single method or equation to accurately estimate such damages.
To determine the value of pain and suffering and other non-economic damages, the negligent party’s insurance company and your lawyer will typically calculate different figures and attempt to reach a settlement amount during the negotiation process. If your claim goes to trial, the jury will determine the value of your pain and suffering.
