Motorcycle Accident DamagesQuestion:

How do you determine the value of my motorcycle accident case?


Motorcycle accident cases present various challenges. We had a client in Hillsborough County recently, unfortunately, who was involved in a motorcycle accident and was severely injured. We talked to him and his family. He was ejected from the motorcycle and, unfortunately as is the case in many motorcycle accident claims, this gentleman did not have his own insurance. He didn’t have personal injury protection to cover him for his medical bills.

One of the important things about these cases and evaluating them is to see an attorney who’s a trial attorney, who can evaluate your case at the initial consultation. We’re not going to be able to give you the exact value of it, but one of the first things we have to do is contact the insurance companies for the at-fault parties. In this particular case, that’s exactly what we did. We contacted them and, within a few weeks, we were able to get information regarding the insurance and then manage the client’s medical treatment.

Your damages can be determined based on two categories; economic damages and non-economic damages.

Your economic damages are things like missed wages, lost earning capacity, medical bills, hospital and ER visit fess. If having been in the motorcycle cost you money in any way, even the fees for your motorcycle repairs and/or replacement, you will be eligible for compensation for that when you have been hurt by a liable party.

Non-economic damages include things like your pain and suffering, mental anguish, PTSD, anxiety/ depression, reduced life quality and more. These are the often intangible damages that we seek compensation for. They can often be the worst part of being in a motorcycle accident. You may have a reduced quality of life because of your inability to play with your kids because of your injuries. You may suffer post traumatic stress because of your accident. All of these damages are significant when taking into consideration what the value of your case should be.
