WHAT TO DO AFTER A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT

WHAT FACTORS AFFECT HOW MUCH I MAY RECOVER IN A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT CASE?

There are many factors that affect how much you may recover in your motorcycle accident case. As experienced motorcycle accident attorneys it is our job to evaluate the factors and guide you through the process to fight for a fair settlement. Common factors that affect the value of a case include:

  • Severity of Injuries. Did you suffer a traumatic brain injury, a broken bone, or injure your neck or back in a way that may require surgery? Generally, the more severe the injury, the higher the potential settlement value.
  • Fault (Liability). Is it certain who caused the accident? Is it clear that any injuries sustained are as a result of the motorcycle accident? The stronger the evidence that (1) the motorcycle accident was caused by the defendant (i.e., a police report or witness statement) and (2) that the injuries sustained were a result of the accident (i.e., medical records), the higher the potential settlement value. You can strengthen your case by following the A.C.T.S.M.A.R.T. steps we’ve outlined above.
