A motorcycle accident victim may have major injuries and many other damages but might not be able to get sufficient compensation through insurance. The person may have to get the rest of their compensation through a lawsuit. Even if the person can get sufficient compensation through insurance, the person might have been able to get a fairer payout with a lawyer’s assistance.
A Nocatee motorcycle accident lawyer from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can assist you (or your injured loved one) in many ways. For one, the lawyer can negotiate with insurers for a fair resolution. If you and your lawyer aren’t satisfied with the settlement offers, your lawyer can sue. We’ll tell you more during a free consultation with a member of our team.
What Damages Can You Claim In A Nocatee Motorcycle Accident Case?
As a motorcycle accident victim, you may have damages far beyond financial damages. You may have serious physical damages and even mental and emotional damages.
As an insurance claimant, you might have trouble obtaining these other damages. Personal injury protection (PIP) insurance and property damage liability (PDL) insurance generally cover only basic financial damages. They don’t cover physical pain, mental anguish, and certain other financial and non-financial damages.
However, you deserve compensation for all your damages. One way to obtain them is to file a personal injury lawsuit, and there may be other ways, too. One of our firm’s motorcycle accident lawyers in Nocatee can explore your options with you and then help you list all your damages. Your list may include:
- Your bills for emergency and ongoing medical treatment
- Bills for rehabilitation, such as physical therapy
- Wages you can’t collect due to your injuries preventing you from working
- Physical pain
- Mental anguish
- Loss of quality of life due to a disability
- Property-related losses, such as the cost of the damage to your motorcycle
You Could Demand Wrongful Death Damages
Your loved one may have been a victim of a fatal motorcycle accident. If this is the case, we are very sorry for your loss. You and your family may be struggling in many ways right now.
You can demand wrongful death damages for your family through a wrongful death lawsuit. These damages may include:
- Emergency care bills you haven’t been able to pay
- Income your family is no longer bringing in
- Your loved one’s physical pain
- Your mental anguish
- Loss of companionship and consortium
- Lost parental guidance
How Much Is My Nocatee Motorcycle Accident Case Worth?
The value of your case depends on a few factors. One is whether all your damages are listed in a claim or lawsuit. If any damages are missing, an insurer won’t award you for them.
Another factor is the valuation of your non-financial damages, like your physical pain. You can either valuate these damages yourself or let one of our firm’s Nocatee motorcycle accident lawyers valuate them for you. Our lawyers have various methods they can use and experts they can refer to for accurately and fairly valuating non-financial damages.
The third factor is whether the insurers will approve your damages and their valuation. Your lawyer can argue for their approval, and the valuation method your lawyer will use will likely be approved.
How Do I Get Evidence Of My Damages?
Many different experts can provide you with invaluable corroborating evidence of your damages. For instance, your doctor could provide a written statement about your physical damages, including your physical pain. A car accident reconstructionist may be able to provide helpful testimony.
However, expert statements and testimonies may not be enough to prove your damages. You may also need such evidence like:
- Your medical records
- The authorities’ accident report
- Photos of the accident scene
- Receipts for your property-related losses
- Traffic camera footage of the accident
- Security camera footage of the accident
One of our firm’s motorcycle accident lawyers in Nocatee can collect such evidence for you. The lawyer can also collect corroborating evidence from experts, like a medical expert or an accident reconstructionist.
How Your Nocatee Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Will Negotiate With Insurers
It can be difficult to handle insurance companies. They can be dismissive of evidence and damages and uncooperative in general. They can also use certain tactics to diminish a claim. However, your attorney will have tactics of their own. For example, your attorney can threaten a bad-faith lawsuit if the insurer isn’t negotiating fairly.
Your attorney will do everything they can to keep the insurers honest and in check. If an insurer doesn’t offer a fair settlement, your attorney won’t hesitate to sue.
