As with any personal injury claim, the amount an injured person may expect to receive following a motorcycle accident depends on many factors.
First, a determination must be made as to liability. In Louisiana, we have comparative liability law, meaning that even if a person is only partially liable for causing an accident, they are responsible for paying part of the damages. For example, if a person is found 25% liable for causing an accident and the total damages are $100,000, that person is responsible for $25,000 of the damages.
Second, the extent of the victim’s injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages must be calculated to determine the value of the claim. This is sometimes a complicated process, especially when a person’s injuries and damages may continue into the future.
Every case is different and we treat all of our clients as individuals. Once a case is ready for resolution, we work hard to analyze its monetary value and communicate with our clients every step of the way.
