Because motorcycles have no built-in protection for riders, accidents that occur on two wheels can be extremely dangerous. The severe injuries associated with motorcycle accidents, including head injuries, spinal injuries, and skin injuries, often require expensive medical treatments and prolonged periods away from work.
Many motorcycle accident victims who were hurt by negligent drivers want to pursue compensation claims, but they may not know how much money they’re eligible to receive. No two motorcycle accident claims are alike, and the dollar figures associated with them can vary.
However, there are a few factors that our Roanoke motorcycle accident lawyers discuss with our clients to help them understand what they can receive compensation for:
- Current and future lost wages—In addition to the money victims can receive for the work they’ve missed up until the day they receive their settlement checks, they also may be eligible to receive money for future wages if their disabilities will prevent them from returning to work.
- Current and future medical bills—Motorcycle accident victims often need immediate medical attention to stabilize their conditions. That treatment is often expensive, but it’s usually not the end of their healthcare needs. Victims are also entitled to seek compensation for the costs of future medical treatments.
