Motorcyclist is Seriously InjuredWhen a motorcyclist is seriously injured in an accident caused by another driver’s negligence, he or she can find themselves in a tough situation physically, emotionally, and financially. The injuries that motorcyclists may suffer can be detrimental, agonizingly painful, and leave them with permanent disabilities. The injuries sustained frequently require emergency medical care and further treatment such as surgery, specialized doctors, or rehabilitative physical therapy to recover. Victims of brutal motorcycle collisions may be required to stay in the hospital for days or even weeks, instead of being able to earn a living. Costly medical bills can quickly begin to tally up, especially after the victim has stopped receiving income.

Calculating damages in personal liability lawsuits can be an extraordinarily complicated task. Accurately estimating the anticipated value of your claim encompasses determining the types and extent of all your damages. Various components can greatly influence how much compensation you will receive, such as your age, occupation, overall health before the accident, the type of injuries, the expected duration of your rehabilitation, the pain and side effects resulting from your treatment, and any necessary future treatments. More severe injuries typically receive higher settlement offers. If you, or a loved one, have been seriously injured or worse in a motorcycle accident, although no amount of money can erase your pain and suffering, you may have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit.

Calculating DamagesThe Dietrich Law Firm P.C. recognizes that victims unfortunate enough to be severely injured in motorcycle accidents may be in a fight for their lives.

Victims may be entitled to seek monetary compensation for damages through a personal injury lawsuit, which may include the following compensation:

  1. All past, present, and future medical expenses and recovery costs resulting from your accident;
  2. All lost wages from missed work;
  3. Diminished future earning capacity;
  4. Pain and suffering caused by your injuries, as well as treatment and recovery;

Settlement Information Regarding Your Motorcycle Claim

According to Section 5102(f) of the No-Fault Law, motorcycles are excluded from the definition of motor vehicles. This means that bikers are not covered under the No-fault Law and are not entitled to any medical or lost wage benefits. However, under Section 5102(d), injured bikers are not subject to the New York No-Fault Law’s serious injury threshold requirement, and are permitted to bring claims against negligent or careless motorists even for relatively minor injuries. New York Motorcycle Insurance minimums are $25,000 per person injured and $50,000 for two or more persons injured in a single crash. Additionally, $50,000 for one fatality and $100,000 for more than one fatality. Motorcycle insurance policies do not automatically include Personal Injury Protection (PIP). Some policies have “med-pay,” which provides payment for medical expenses. Your insurance and the responsible party’s insurance policies can be a big factor in how much your max settlement can be. We need to review your policy to see what types of coverage you have regarding your injuries. Never listen to solely your insurance broker. Oftentimes, brokers are mistaken about the full amount of coverage provided or try to lowball claimants.

Jed Dietrich, Esq., distinguished as American Institute of Trial Lawyers Litigator of the Year, and his top rated team of motorcycle accident injury attorneys will help you maximize your chances of securing a large settlement. After reviewing all relevant insurance policies, liability, and injury levels, we can begin our settlement estimation process and send a demand letter. It is important to remember that you are not legally obligated to accept the 1st settlement offer. Never admit responsibility for the accident or agree to settlement amounts with anyone. To be placed in a position to receive the highest possible settlement, make sure to seek immediate medical attention and keep up with your medical treatment. Claims adjusters often consider not seeking immediate medical attention as proof that your injuries were exaggerated, which can lead to a lower settlement offer or even a denied claim. You should be able to demonstrate harm suffered attributed to the motorcycle accident and validate the scope of your injuries and other damages.
