Motorcycle accidents can have a variety of outcomes, including property damage, mental anguish, serious or permanent injury, and death.
Individuals who are recovering from a serious accident may quickly accumulate monetary, physical, and psychological losses, which can be detrimental.
Many people in the United States live paycheck to paycheck or have a hard time affording the astronomical out-of-pocket expenses that can result from a motorcycle accident injury.
While the costs of a motorcycle accident can vary, they may include the following:
financial: medical transport costs, hospital care/other medical bills, bike repair/replacement costs, and lost wages
physical: serious injury requiring long-term rehabilitation and care, loss of limbs, disfigurement, paralysis, and severe brain trauma
psychological: the cost of pain and suffering, which causes mental anguish
Injured motorcyclists who want to recover compensation for their losses should consider filing a motorcycle accident claim.
The injured rider or a loved one can file a motorcycle accident claim on their behalf. In the latter case, a claim could be filed to recover damages for a loved one who was seriously injured or died as a result of the accident.
Losing a loved one in a motorcycle accident can be a traumatic experience, and you may be entitled to wrongful death compensation.
You will need an attorney to help you prove that another party’s negligence caused your loved one’s wrongful death.
In wrongful death motorcycle accident cases, negligent parties may use the following terms:
The motorcycle manufacturer was found to be at fault in the accident by another driver (in the case that the accident was caused by defective bike parts, i.e. becoming a product liability case)
A thorough investigation of the accident and the party at fault can yield evidence to support the negligence of another party in a wrongful death or product liability claim.
