How Can a Meridian Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Help You Get Compensation?
According to the Idaho Transportation Department, there were 327 motorcycle crashes in Ada County in 2021. Out of these, 284 resulted in injuries, and 10 were fatal. This represents an increase from the previous year, when there were 264 crashes, 236 injuries, and 7 fatalities. The majority of the accidents occurred on urban roads (69%) and on weekdays (81%). The most common contributing factors were inattention (22%), failure to yield (15%), and speeding (14%). The average age of the riders involved in the accidents was 41, and the majority were males (88%). The highest number of crashes occurred in the summer months, from June to August.
The average cost for a motorcycle accident is between $2,500 and $1.4 million, depending on the extent of rider injuries. If the accident leads to a fatality, the average costs are around $1.2 million. Every year, 82,000 people are injured in motorcycle accidents, and over 4,000 lose their lives. These statistics and the sheer cost of these accidents are sobering, particularly for accident victims. If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle crash that was due to another driver’s negligence, you may be eligible to receive compensation. Before you settle for the amount offered by the driver’s insurance company, make sure you understand all of the potential types of compensation you may be eligible to receive. This compensation is called “damages” and pays for a number of expenses you face in the days ahead.
Motorcycle Injuries Tend to Come with High Medical Bills
Damages cover not only your current medical bills but also future costs for care. If you miss time from work while you recover, you can get compensation for that. Should your injuries mean you cannot work or are limited in what you can do, then you can get compensation for lost earning capacity.
Pain and suffering, including emotional trauma, is also part of your damages. These can be harder to put a value on, but they are still a valid reason to seek damages. If there was serious negligence, you may even be able to ask for punitive damages to punish them for their actions. In the case of a fatal motorcycle accident, the victim’s family can seek compensation for lost companionship and lost future wages. With so many considerations to make when seeking damages after a crash, you can easily get overwhelmed. Working with a motorcycle accident lawyer from Strong Law will help you protect your rights and interests.
