How Much Is My Case Worth?

One of the first questions people often ask when they meet with an attorney at our New Haven law firm is, “How much money is my motorcycle accident worth?” This might seem like a simple question. But the reality is your motorcycle injury claim or lawsuit’s value depends on many factors, not all of which may be immediately obvious. You may be eligible to compensation for:

  • All your medical care related to your motorcycle accident, including future, anticipated medical expenses, including follow-up doctor’s appointments, surgery and physical therapy if necessary.
  • Cost of repairing or replacing your motorcycle.
  • Replacement income if you cannot work while you’re recovering from your injury.
  • Lost future income if you sustained a permanent disability that prevents you from returning to work.
  • Pain and suffering.

Add all these expenses up and your New Haven motorcycle accident can easily be worth thousands of dollars or a lot more. So what’s the best way to know how much your case is worth? Talk to a motorcycle accident lawyer at our New Haven law firm.

Why Are Motorcycle Accident Cases Complicated?

Another driver clearly caused your motorcycle crash in New Haven. Sounds straightforward, right? Don’t be so sure. In many cases, getting the money you rightfully deserve for your motorcycle crash can be very difficult.

One big reason why: the bias about motorcyclists. Many drivers point the finger at motorcyclists after a serious crash and blame them for causing the collision. These drivers think that all motorcyclists are risk takers who put everyone on the road in danger.

Worse, the insurance companies agree with them. That’s because they know how much money many motorcycle accident injury claims add up to. This is just one of the reasons why you need an experienced New Haven motorcycle accident lawyer on your side, fighting for your rights.

Why You Need An Attorney

Many injured motorcyclists don't think they need a lawyer if they were hurt in a collision caused by another driver in New Haven. Many riders think all they need to do is contact their insurance company and they take care of everything.

Unfortunately, that's not how many motorcycle accidents work. Too often, insurance companies do the exact opposite after a motorcycle accident. Instead of helping injured riders, these companies do everything they can to avoid paying injured motorcyclists. How? By blaming the motorcyclist for causing the collision. Many drivers try to say the same thing - it was the motorcyclist's fault.

We know the truth. We know that most motorcyclists follow the rules of the road.  We know that most motorcycle accidents are caused by other drivers. That's why we work so hard on such cases in New Haven. If you didn't do anything to cause your collision, you shouldn't have to pay for someone else's mistakes. Your case is about more than just money. It's about holding people accountable for their actions.
