Yonkers Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
If a motorcycle crash has left you injured or disabled, you can seek compensation from those responsible. Get what you’re owed by working with a Yonkers motorcycle accident lawyer.
Motorcycle accidents are difficult to recover from, especially when hit by a much larger vehicle. This can leave victims suffering physically while also struggling financially. An experienced Yonkers motorcycle accident lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP can help you through this.
By filing a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf, we can hold the negligent party financially accountable for the harm they have caused you.
Compensation for a Motorcycle Wreck
One of the first questions we hear from victims of motorcycle accidents is “how much is my claim worth?” The first part of the answer is easier to calculate than the second. You can receive both economic damages to pay for tangible expenses and non-economic damages to pay for pain and suffering and the damage done to your quality of life.
These are some of the financial expenses that you might be able to recover when they apply to your case:
- Lost wages, including wages you may lose by being unable to work in the future
- Current and future medical bills
- Cost of making your home disability-friendly
- Medical equipment
- Rehabilitative therapy
- Caregiver expenses
- Transportation costs
Non-Economic Damages and Motorbike Collisions
This is money to compensate for how your life has been impacted by your injuries. These damages are not connected to any direct expenses and are therefore subjective. Your Yonkers motorcycle accident lawyer will need to make a case for how your life has changed since the accident, such as things that you can no longer do and what emotional or mental trauma you have suffered.
For example, are you no longer able to enjoy your favorite hobbies? Are you unable to play with your kids or go for walks? Is your anxiety so bad that you require medication and therapy? During your consultation let us know about changes in your life so that we can use these examples when making your case.
Non-economic damages are critical to a motorcycle injury case because money you receive for medical bills goes to the doctor and compensation for lost wages is money you would have received if your accident had never happened. This money, on the other hand, is just for you.
Filing an Injury Lawsuit and Dealing with Biker Stereotypes
Before you can get any money for your injuries, we need to file a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party. This requires looking into your accident to determine what happened and who caused it. This requires help from a motorcycle crash attorney, especially given known anti-rider bias.
Unfortunately, many people assume that a motorcycle rider was being reckless, regardless of the circumstances. This bias can work against you in trial as a jury may place blame for the accident on your shoulders, as you can expect the insurance company’s attorneys to take advantage of this. Protecting yourself requires seeking help from a Yonkers motorcycle accident lawyer who knows how to argue cases to the benefit of motorcyclists.
