What damages can I recover for my motorcycle accident?

When you are injured because another person acts irresponsibly or negligently, you deserve to recover damages. To get the full recovery you are entitled to rather than the fraction of your damages that the insurance company will likely offer you, if they offer anything at all, you need a dedicated and experienced motorcycle wreck lawyer on your side. Burger Law’s accomplished motorcycle accident lawyers in St. Louis will get you the recovery you deserve.

In an injury case such as a motorcycle accident claim, there are two categories of damages: economic and non-economic. We add the value of all of your damages together to get the full sum of your damages so that we can demand a complete recovery for you. Insurance companies are notoriously resistant to paying the injured what they are owed, so your motorcycle accident lawyer will very likely need to use negotiation and litigation skills to demand the payment you are owed.

Economic Damages

  • Medical bills
  • Treatment costs
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Lost future earnings

Non-economic Damages

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Permanent disability
  • Disfigurement

What factors affect my recovery in my motorcycle accident claim?

  • The circumstances of the crash
  • What parties were at fault in the accident
  • If you had fault in the accident
  • The extent and severity of your injuries
  • What medical treatments you received
  • Any long-term or permanent effects of your injuries, such as disfigurement or permanent disability
  • The extent by which your injuries affect your enjoyment and quality of life
  • The at-fault party’s insurance coverage

To get the full recovery you deserve, your motorcycle accident lawyer must work hard to demand full compensation and prove the extent of your damages.
