Calculate the Cost of Your Motorcycle Accident Injuries
In 2019, motorcycle accidents resulted in 84,000 injuries and over 5,000 fatalities, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration statistics. If your motorcycle accident was caused by any form of neglect on the at-fault driver’s part, our team will assist you in building a personal injury case for financial compensation.
We will assess the value of the following types of damages:
- Current and future medical bills
- Current and future lost wages
- Property damage or destruction
- In-home assistance and support
These are examples of the economic damages you may be entitled to recover. Our team will work with you to compile the documentation that proves their value and ensure that no valid costs are overlooked.
Track Your Non-Economic Losses
After a motorcycle accident, you are entitled to recover another type of monetary award — the intangible expenses related to your injuries. You have the right to request additional compensation for the following types of damages:
- Physical impairment
- Physical disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Mental trauma
- Emotional anguish
These are called non-economic damages, and they can be more challenging to assess than economic damages. Our team will explain the process of assigning a value to these intangible damages and work to ensure that you get the best possible payout in your case.
Seek Financial Recovery Within the Allotted Time
Like most people, you probably know what a statute of limitations is, but might not know how it applies to your motorcycle accident case. In Nassau County, New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 214 defines the most commonly applicable personal injury statute of limitations. (When a government agency, municipality or public authority contributed to the happening of the accident, a significantly shorter statute of limitations and an ever shorter period to server a Notice of Claim will apply.) Similarly, Estates, Powers & Trusts § 5-4.1 defines the wrongful death statute of limitations. Our team will clarify the relevant filing deadline and the importance of compliance.
By hiring our team to support you as soon as possible, we can ensure that the statute of limitations is met and we have ample time to:
- Conduct a thorough investigation
- Canvass for available witnesses
- Collect dashcam or surveillance video
- Collect smartphone videos and photos
Getting our team involved in your motorcycle case right away gives us the best opportunity to build the strongest case possible for you.
