Our Michigan motorcycle lawyers get settlements for injured bikers and passengers after a serious motorcycle accident. There are several claims allowed for injuries suffered in the accident. Pain and suffering compensation is one type of claim.
Economic damages after a car accident include medical bills and expenses, lost wages, attendant care services, and household services. These claims are made against the no-fault insurance company responsible for paying personal injury protection (PIP) benefits. There are also economic claims that can be made against the negligent driver that are separate from no-fault insurance benefits. These can include the excess loss of earnings that extend beyond the three year period for no-fault claims.
Pain and suffering damages after a motorcycle include compensation for:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Fright and shock
- Denial of social pleasure and enjoyments
- Embarrassment, humiliation or mortification
- Scars and other disfigurements caused in the motorcycle accident
There is no set amount of money for pain and suffering damages and every case is different. Factors used by attorneys and insurance companies to determine the amount of the settlement include the degree of fault by each person in the accident, the severity and permanency of the injury, the nature of the disability, and the need for future medical treatment. Additionally, the dollar amount of insurance coverage available for the claim is a major factor in determining the proper settlement.
It takes an experience motorcycle accident lawyer to prove these claims to the insurance company or a jury. There are certain methods of presenting these “invisible” injuries to the insurance company or jury that allow them to essentially feel the pain of the accident victim. This helps them understand how these injuries have impacted the lives of the victim and the surrounding family. We have won top settlements for our motorcycle accident clients using these methods.
