Motorcycle Accidents Overview
If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident as either a rider or passenger, you are eligible for a personal injury claim. The amount that your claim will be will depend on the damages and injuries sustained and the amount of liability that you contributed to the overall accident. A personal injury lawyer can help you to determine an appropriate amount.
Understanding Liability and Damages
In order to put a value to a motorcycle accident claim, two things must be considered: liability and damages. Liability who is who is at fault for an accident. If there isn’t any liability, your case isn’t worth much. Damages have to do with losses including injuries or property damages as a result of the motorcycle accident. Typically, the more serious the injury or the higher the damages, the more value your injury claim has.
How are Damages in these Cases Calculated in New Jersey?
There are no exact guidelines for determining these cases. Typically, things such as lost earnings are calculated based on past checks while other damages are calculated by medical bills, hospital bills, mechanic bills, etc. If you have endured a serious injury and are no longer able to work, calculating future lost earning capacity is important.
