How Does a Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit Work?

Motorcycle accidents typically involve more severe injuries than car accidents due to the lack of protection offered by the vehicle. A higher percentage of motorcycle accidents are fatal compared to regular vehicle accidents. 

More severe injuries lead to higher settlements and more complicated cases. Following the filing of a claim, it’s common for both parties to investigate the accident independently. The injured party will attempt to put the blame on the defendant for their negligence, and the defendant will try to prove that the injured party had something to do with their own injuries. It might be more difficult for them to recover compensation if the motorcycle rider was not wearing a helmet, ignored traffic laws, or was lane splitting. Along with establishing fault, these investigations also help to determine how much the case is worth. 

Calculating Average Motorcycle Accident Settlement

Motorcycle accident claim amounts are determined based on the specifics of a case. Each of the factors listed below can have a substantial impact on your final settlement:

  • Property damage – If your motorcycle is damaged due to another party’s negligence, you can receive compensation for the repairs. If your motorbike is completely totaled, you may be entitled to money for a brand-new motorcycle. 
  • Injury severity – Financial recovery and compensation for a motorcycle accident are significantly affected by the injuries sustained in a crash. Generally, more serious injuries warrant more significant compensation and result in more complicated cases. 
  • Medical costs – The costs for treatment of the injuries sustained in the crash may significantly affect the potential value of the case.
  • Insurance policies – The insurance policies of the driver who crashed with the motorcyclist, and the insurance policy for the motorcyclist himself or herself, will likely set the limits for the potential recovery available to the injured party or parties. 
  • Wrongful death damages – Due to the severe nature of motorcycle accidents, a motorbike crash claim can turn into a wrongful death claim. If a crash victim is killed or dies as a direct result of the injuries sustained, the surviving loved one(s) may be eligible to take legal action against the liable party. Wrongful death lawsuits may include a variety of additional damages, such as burial costs, loss of companionship, and emotional distress for the loss of a loved one. 

There are numerous compensatory and non-compensatory damages that can affect the outcome of a motorcycle accident lawsuit settlement. Lost income, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and scarring could all change the final amount of a potential settlement. Another factor that influences settlement value is the length of a case and whether or not it gets to trial.
