Thousands of motorcycle riders take to the roads every day in New York, most of whom understand the risks of riding a bike. Most notably, the danger coming from the lack of a cabin which provides significant protection for passengers of cars in the event of a collision or other accident.
Despite this assumption of risk, a motorcycle rider still has the right to seek compensation from those who caused their accident. For those who decide to pursue the legal path after a motorcycle accident, an accident attorney can be invaluable.
What Is The Average Payout For A Motorcycle Accident?
The victims of motorcycle accidents are likely to receive compensation for a variety of damages, just as they would in an auto accident. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Direct medical expenses
- Expected medical bills
- Loss of income
- Losing a companion/consortium
- Physical pain
- Emotional distress
You may be eligible for one or more of these kinds of damages depending on your individual case. Many accident victims can claim compensation based on all of these factors, but others may only be able to account for some of them. The fact is that the compensation for a motorcycle accident cannot be determined before the legal process has concluded.
Is It Necessary To Hire A Motorcycle Accident Attorney?
You were injured in a motorcycle accident and are wondering if you should hire an attorney for your case. It is possible that your insurance policy covers the damages and your insurance provider may have verbally agreed that they will cover them.
However, even when a situation such as this is ideal, where the rider is not suffering physical pain and they are anticipated to be reimbursed for the damages to their vehicle, it is still imperative to hire legal counsel.
You will likely need to negotiate with insurance companies at one point or another. A lawyer who has experience negotiating with insurance companies may be able to make a considerable difference. In addition, insurance providers are more likely to increase their settlement offers if they see you are represented by an attorney, and if any legal hurdles arise, your legal defendant will know how to resolve them.
Lastly, should you be eligible for compensation that you had no idea about, an experienced attorney will inform you of it and suggest any other tips that will enhance the benefits you ultimately receive.
