What damages can a motorcycle accident victim collect? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

National statistics show that almost 80 percent of motorcycle crashes cause serious injury or death to the motorcyclist. This is largely due to the lack of protection that a motorcyclist has when another vehicle slams into them. Injuries suffered by motorcycle accident victims are often catastrophic, requiring long-term recovery and many suffer permanent disabilities. Some of the damages a motorcycle accident lawyer will pursue for victims include:

  • Past, current, and future medical bills
  • Loss of income, including loss of future income if the victim is permanently disabled
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Permanent disability
  • Disfigurement or scarring
