How Much Compensation Can I Get From A Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit?
In each case, the amount of money that is obtained through a settlement or won through a successful verdict is intended to help the plaintiff recover from their losses. Until our legal team reviews your case and calculates your past losses and expected future losses, we are unable to provide an estimate on how much your case may be worth.
Are There Any Documents That Could Help My Attorney With My Case?
Absolutely. Any time that you are involved in an accident you should keep records. Records that may be helpful include:
- Insurance paperwork: Any paperwork that you receive from the insurance company should be saved. If the adjuster calls, keep a log of the dates and time those calls took place and what was discussed.
- Medical records: Records detailing your injuries and the treatments required are vital to any case. If possible, take pictures of your injuries over time so that visual evidence can be provided.
- Witness contact information: If anyone saw your accident happen, collect their name, phone number, and address.
- Photographs of the scene: It may not be possible to take photographs immediately but if possible, do so.
- Repair records: If the motorcycle was totaled or repaired, keep that paperwork to show the damage that was done.
It can never hurt to keep too much information. Whatever you think is relevant may prove to be crucial evidence.
Can I Sue If A Incorrect Repair To My Motorcycle Caused An Accident?
Yes. If a repair is performed incorrectly or a defect exists in a part of the motorcycle, it may be possible to pursue legal action against the part manufacturer or the auto body shop that did the work. Just like a negligent driver, these groups can be held legally liable for their negligence.
Who Can Sue If A Motorcycle Rider Is Killed In An Accident?
When the victim of an accident dies, their loved ones, including their parents, spouse, and children can typically file a wrongful death lawsuit on their behalf. A wrongful death lawsuit can provide additional compensation for losses such as lost inheritance, lost income, lost companionship, and funeral and burial benefits.
The idea of taking legal action after death may seem overwhelming but it could be the only way to remain financially stable after losing a loved one whose income contributed to the family expenses. Our legal team understands how difficult this time can be and we approach each case with compassion. Our goal is client satisfaction and we are proud to represent the families of victims who died because of negligence.
