Types of Damages Victims of Motorcycle Accidents Can Pursue
The driver whose negligence caused your accident bears financial responsibility for its aftermath. Our motorcycle accident lawyers establish negligence by proving their duty, breach, cause, and damages. Next, to pursue the best possible settlement for you, we will:
- Present each settlement offer to you
- Review the feasibility of each offer
- Consult financial experts on your behalf
Because the final decision is yours to make, we ensure you understand the finality of a signed settlement agreement and help you make a well-informed decision. However, we also work hard to make sure you do not inadvertently accept a speedy yet flawed settlement that does not take the full financial impact of the accident into account.
After we prove the at-fault driver’s negligence, we help you collect economic damages. These are the damages that have an attached and provable cost. They include:
- Past and future medical bills
- Assistive medical devices
- Treatment-related travel expenses
- Past and future income loss
- Loss of future earnings
- Property damage or loss
If a loved one was fatally injured in the motorcycle wreck, we help your family members recover the costs of making their final arrangements. We also help you recover their financial and household contributions to your family.
The non-economic damages you are entitled to are typically more difficult to calculate. These damages are intangible and are typically based on the severity of your personal injuries and your written prognosis. They include:
- Physical disability
- Physical disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Emotional distress
Our legal team will help you assess and document the toll your personal injuries have taken on your physical and mental wellbeing and on your ability to enjoy life. In addition, we make sure your non-economic damages are accurately valued before the beginning of the settlement process.
Complying with Statutory Deadlines
In North Carolina, you have a limited amount of time to file your personal injury lawsuit, with the length of time varying depending on the outcome of the accident. Accordingly:
- The personal injury statute of limitations is generally three years from the date of the accident, according to G.S. § 1-52
- The wrongful death statute of limitations is generally two years from the date of your loved one’s accident-related demise, according to G.S. § 1-53
Our motorcycle accident attorney will clarify the relevant timeline and any circumstances of your accident that alter the timeline. With enough notice, we will also ensure your lawsuit is filed on time to help you avoid the risks of an expired timeline, leaving you with no legal option to compel the at-fault driver to compensate you.
