How Much are Battle Creek Motorcycle Accident Settlements?

Our attorneys will aggressively pursue a settlement against the the driver or motorcyclist that caused the accident. Too often, bikers get blamed for causing an accident when in fact they were the innocent party. We track down witnesses and hire accident reconstruction experts to prove that you were not at fault. This forces the insurance company to pay you substantial compensation for your pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment, disability, and loss of income.

There is no such thing as a settlement calculator to determine the amount of compensation you will be paid after motorcycle accident.  Factors in determining the amount of your settlement include:

  • Who was at fault for the accident and to what degree for each party
  • The seriousness of your injuries
  • The type of medical treatment received, like surgery and physical therapy
  • The permanency of your injuries and whether you will ever fully recover
  • The nature of any scars or other permanent disfigurements
  • The amount of insurance available to pay your claim

We have a great track record of motorcycle accident settlements and jury verdicts. We settle over 97% of our cases for the maximum amount before ever going to court.

In fatal motorcycle accident cases, we will file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the surviving family members. These cases seek compensation for pain and suffering, loss of society and companionship, loss of income and support, and funeral expenses.
