How Much Can I Sue for in a Motorcycle Accident Case?

When filing a personal injury suit, the goal is not to squeeze as much cash as you can out of the person who harmed you. The goal is recover as much as you need to make a full, complete recovery without having to absorb the financial cost of someone else’s negligence—and we are here to help you make that happen.

However, it is still important to understand what level of compensation you could receive in your personal injury case and have appropriately high expectations. Here are a few things to consider when thinking about how much you could receive if you sue the responsible party for damages:

  • Liability: This is perhaps the most important part of any personal injury case. If you can’t prove that someone (or some entity) was negligent or responsible for your injuries, then you can’t legally force them to pick up the tab. In motorcycle accident cases, you will likely need to prove than another driver, parts manufacturer, or roadway maintenance overseer was careless and caused your accident and injury.
  • Calculable Damages: Consider the actual cost of your injuries, lost wages, and so on. Once liability for your injuries is proven, you may be able to recover the specific, total amount of your injury-related expenses (and legal fees), but not more. For example, if your injury-related costs add up to $5,000, you cannot file a personal injury suit claiming that the responsible party owes you $1 million.
  • Incalculable Damages: …unless you are a victim of pain and suffering. Sometimes accidents are so damaging and personally destructive that the victim’s life is ruined. In such cases, a judge may hear arguments for pain and suffering, and may award you compensation for emotional distress, loss of consortium, and other serious personal harm that does not come with a price tag.
