What Is My Motorcycle Accident Case Worth?
It’s common for anyone involved in a motorcycle accident to wonder how much his or her case is worth. Though there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, all motorcycle accidents tend to involve the same issues. Only after carefully evaluating each of these issues will you be able to know how much your case is worth.
You may be tempted to settle a motorcycle accident claim soon after the crash occurs. When the insurance companies are pressuring you to accept a settlement, you should always pause and contact an attorney before you agree to anything. Even if the settlements seems generous, you can’t really know if it is a fair offer until you have conducted a complete investigation. Once the investigation is complete, you then need to evaluate the facts in light of all the legal issues involved.
If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, recovering from your injuries is your first priority. Even minor injuries can lead to hospital expenses, rehabilitation, or other unexpected costs. For significant injuries, medical costs can skyrocket and last a lifetime. Determining how much your case is worth requires experts who can calculate the total costs of all the expenses caused by your crash.
Even a minor motorcycle crash can leave you hospitalized, injured, or otherwise unable to get back to work. A more significant crash that leaves you unable to return to your job can cause a significant loss of income. Determining how much income you lose because of your crash often requires a careful evaluation of your wages and the effects of the crash on your long-term income. Factors such as loss of earning capacity, lost profits, and re-training expenses will also impact the lost wages calculation.
