A motorcycle accident can leave you physically and emotionally devastated. Plus, you’re bound to have a mountain of medical bills, and you won’t be working during your recovery time.
If the accident was due to another driver’s mistake, you have every right to expect compensation. What you can claim depends on the facts surrounding your crash as well as the seriousness of your injuries. Here are some of the possibilities:
You can seek compensation for the treatment of injuries you have sustained following the accident as well as future health complications resulting from the accident. A motorcycle accident can result in brain and internal injuries, broken bones and psychological trauma – all these can cost tens of thousands of dollars to treat.
Depending on the severity of the accident, you may spend weeks, months or even years out of work. You can seek compensation for lost past and future wages while recovering from your injuries. Also, you may sue for lost earning potential if the injuries result in a permanent disability.
Pain and suffering
Long-term pain can prevent you from working or doing the things you love and enjoying your life. Disfigurement can result in long-term complications that can greatly hurt your well-being. You may also suffer anxiety, depression and multiple psychological complications, too.
Knowing the damages you can sue for can help you file a personal injury claim and get the compensation you deserve. When you’ve been hurt through no fault of your own, you have every right to ask the responsible party to pay for your losses.
