What Types of Damages Can I Seek After a Motorcycle Accident?
Personal injury cases vary greatly from accident to accident, but there are some common factors that you can consider to get an idea of what you may be able to seek with the help of an attorney. Learn about the difference between economic and non-economic damages below, and understand when and how punitive damages are involved in personal injury cases as well.
Economic damages are just like they sound: they are purely economic, and have receipts, income histories, and invoices that are used to total the amounts. These include lost wages, medical bills, and other financial matters such as changes to your future earning power, future possible medical costs, and additional lost or diminished income. If you have medical insurance, your insurance company is entitled to any and all damages until they are repaid, at which point any additional damages will to repay your expenses and debts.
Non-economic damages include things like your pain and suffering, loss or reduction of mobility and enjoyment of leisure activities, and other things that do not necessarily have an assigned dollar value. Just because there no assigned dollar value does not mean that they are not important, and we will pursue them to the maximum amount that is reasonable. It is likely that these factors will be the most contentious when negotiating with insurance company lawyers, but you can be confident that we are representing your best interests.
In some cases, punitive damages are also included in personal injury cases. These damages are included when your injuries are egregious and a result of extreme, criminal negligence. They are not very common, and must be determined to be valid by the court. If punitive damages are reasonable to be included, we will have to do additional work to determine what a fair amount to seek will be.
