Which Damages Can Be Pursued?
There are several types of losses or “damages” you may experience in a motorcycle crash. Damages can be physical, such as a broken bone or road rash. Damages can also be economic, such as loss of income and the damage or destruction of your bike. Every case is different, but some of the damages you may go after in your claim can include:
- Ambulance service after the crash
- All ER services and hospitalizations related to the injury
- All surgeries that you had to have because of the crash
- All your medical and therapeutic equipment and prescriptions
- All therapies: physical, occupational and psychological
- Your lost income
Many times, an insurance company will present an offer. It may appear to be robust at first. But all too often, the first offer presented is not enough to cover all medical care and economic losses. This is why working with a personal injury attorney is highly advised. It should be noted that trucking and delivery companies and their drivers are held to different and most often higher standards of safety. We handle motorcycle crashes with cars, trucks and delivery vans. Any time you or a loved one is involved in a vehicular crash caused by someone else, turn to our team.
