What Can I Be Compensated For In A Motorcycle Accident Case? 

The types of losses and amounts of compensation vary depending on the accident. To determine an appropriate amount of compensation, an attorney can assist in estimating these losses. These are some of the damages for which you may receive compensation for after a motorcycle accident.

Property Damage: Property damage refers to the cost of repairing or replacing your motorcycle as well as any personal property you may have been traveling with. The insurance provider must pay the motorcycle’s fair market value if the cost of repairs exceeds the worth of the bike if it is declared a total loss.

Medical Expenses: A motorcycle accident often results in catastrophic injuries.  All medical bills associated with the accident will be covered.  This includes emergency room visits, hospital stays, doctor visits, prescription drugs, surgeries, and other medical treatment incurred as a result of the accident. 

Lost Wages and Earning Capacity: If your injuries prevent you from working, you may be entitled to compensation for your missed time. This can also include the time spent at medical visits, appointments for therapy, or an appointment that kept you from working because of your condition.  This type of damage also takes into account your possible future earnings in addition to the current lost wages resulting from the accident. In other words, you might be able to include this in your claim if your injuries are severe enough to prevent you from working in the future.

Pain & Suffering:  Compensation for pain and suffering is for the discomfort brought on by your injuries. 
An injured rider may experience pain and suffering in even minor motorcycle accidents. 

Mental Anguish: An accident causing severe injuries can leave the motorcycle rider in emotional distress.  They may suffer from feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and depressed.  

Punitive Damages: This is additional compensation that can be included in the settlement if the conduct of the at-fault party deserves a heavier punishment than the accident damage recompense.
An example of a case that could include punitive damages would be a drunk driver hitting a biker. 

Loss of Enjoyment: If the motorcycle accident left the rider unable to perform the things they once valued, they may be entitled to compensation for their diminished quality of life. For instance, they could assert loss of enjoyment if the victim enjoyed running but was rendered unable to do so as a result of the accident.

Loss of Consortium: Unlike the loss of enjoyment, which affects the motorcycle accident victim directly, loss of consortium affects the sufferer’s loved ones. The spouse or close relatives may file a claim for loss of consortium if the accident renders the victim incapable of carrying out marital responsibilities.

Wrongful Death: In the unfortunate case of fatal injures from the accident, the immediate family can bring a wrongful death claim against all parties at fault. As a result, additional compensation would be provided for things like funeral costs, lost income from the deceased person, potential future earnings, and pension benefits. Inheritance loss and lack of health insurance are two other examples of eligible damages.

Frequently Asked Questions for Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

As experienced Dallas Motorcycle Accident Lawyers, we have compiled a list of common questions we get.    

Every motorcycle accident case is different. Contact our legal team today for a free consultation to discuss your case and see how much compensation you are entitled to.

According to the Texas Department of Transportation a rider must be 21 or over to ride without a helmet in Texas. Riders younger than 21 are required to wear helmets.  It is always in your best interest for safety to wear a helmet. For your motorcycle accident case, not wearing a helmet could affect the settlement outcome.  If your injuries could have been prevented by wearing one, you may not be able to receive full compensation.

After a motorcycle crash, it’s important to take immediate action to protect yourself and others. Here are some things you should do following a motorcycling accident:

  1. Stay calm. Don’t panic. You’re probably feeling confused and disoriented. This is normal. Try to remain focused and remember what happened.
  2. Assess the situation. Ask yourself questions about what happened, like “Was I wearing a helmet?” If there was another vehicle involved, ask yourself questions like “Who caused the crash?” and “How badly am I hurt?”
  3. Call 911. Make sure everyone else is safe. Tell the operator what happened and where you are. Be patient; wait for help to arrive.
  4. Check for injuries. Look around for signs of bleeding, broken bones, cuts, scrapes, bruises, burns, or anything else out of place.
  5. Move away from the scene. Once emergency personnel arrives, move farther away from the area.
  6. Collect evidence. If you are able to take pictures of the accident scene, obtain the other driver’s information, and see if there were any eye-witnesses.
  7. Get Medical Attention.  Even if you think you are not seriously injured it is important to seek medical attention, as some injuries, such as whiplash, may not immediately present themselves.  Getting immediate medical attention will ensure that all your injuries are compensated. 
  8. Call a motorcycle accident lawyer

Driving a motorcycle does come with some risks.  Although motorcycles account for only 3% of all registered cars, they are responsible for 14% of all traffic-related deaths. Riding a motorcycle has an increased chance of injuries. 

There are many reasons why people ride motorcycles, including sport riding, commuting, touring, and even racing. Some riders choose to ride because it provides a sense of freedom, while others enjoy the thrill of speed. Regardless of why someone chooses to ride, it’s important that they understand the dangers associated with doing so. Here are some common causes of motorcycle accidents.

Motorcycle accidents are frequently caused by other negligent drivers. Motorcycles are more difficult to spot than cars because of their small size. The following are some of the most common reasons for motorcycle accidents:

  • Negligent drivers – failed to see the motorcycle, failed to yield, and so on.
  • Blind spots
  • Poor road conditions
  • Inclement weather
  • Drunk driving
  • Road hazards
  • Road rage
  • Motorcycle manufacturer defect
  • Reckless behavior- driving over the speed limit, doing tricks, crossing multiple lanes of traffic, etc

As previously stated, motorcycle accidents frequently result in significant injuries. This is why it’s critical to hire a motorcycle accident lawyer to hold the at-fault party accountable.

As stated previously, when an accident involves a motorcycle, injuries are inevitable. The most common motorcycle injuries endured are:

  • road rash
  • broken or fractured bones
  • internal bleeding
  • internal organ damage
  • head injury
  • severe burns
  • spine injuries
  • nerve damage

A personal injury lawyer handles motorcycle accident claims.  They work on a contingency-fee-basis. This means that they do not charge upfront or out-of-pocket fees.  Once a fair settlement has been released, the attorney will withhold a percentage for legal fees.

This means if they don’t win you a settlement, you don’t pay anything.  There is no risk! Get a free consultation today to see if you have a case.
