Recoverable Damages After a Motorcycle Accident
If another driver’s negligence caused your motorcycle accident, G.S. § 20-279.1 allows you to seek compensation for your losses. Since a motorcycle does not provide the same protection as a vehicle, many motorcyclists sustain serious injuries in a collision. The long- and short-term costs of treating your injuries can include:
- Emergency room care
- Hospital admission
- Assistive medical devices
- Physical therapy
- Counseling and support
The medical care required to treat your motorcycle accident injuries can add up quickly. Rather than creating a financial hardship for you and your family, our law firm can help you seek compensation for your medical expenses.
We request your medical records from each health care professional and facility where you received coverage. On your own, just requesting these records and bills can be overwhelming. We take care of it for you to ensure the injury portion of your case is complete and accurate.
Recover The Costs of Your Injury-Related Expenses
In addition to the costs of your medical care, we help you recover damages for the financial expenses and losses related to your injuries and recovery. These can include both economic and non-economic damages such as:
- Current and future lost wages
- Physical impairment
- Lasting physical disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional distress
- Diminished quality of life
Many of these damages can be difficult to quantify. Our case assessment team works hard to make sure your case is accurately valued.
Request Wrongful Death Damages
If your family lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident caused by a negligent driver, our team will help you recover the costs of making their final arrangements.
In addition, we seek compensation for your family’s loss of your loved one’s financial and household contributions. Other wrongful death damages you are entitled to include loss of consortium, companionship, and society. It can be difficult to understand and assign value to these intangible damages on your own. When we represent you, we review the extent of your losses and ensure they receive a fair value.
Get Compensated for Your Damaged Motorcycle
When a passenger vehicle, SUV, or large truck collides with your motorcycle, your bike is likely to sustain substantially greater damage. Ensuring you are compensated for your damaged property is an important part of resolving your lawsuit. Overlooking the property damage portion of your case could mean you are forced to pay to repair or replace your bike out of your own pocket. Those costs can include:
- Repairing your motorcycle
- Replacing your motorcycle
- Motorcycle’s diminished value
The at-fault driver is responsible for the damage they caused, so we do not overlook the importance of having your motorcycle restored to its pre-accident condition or replaced altogether.

Do Not Wait to Seek Compensation from The At-Fault Driver
In North Carolina, your right to seek compensation has an expiration date. The state-imposed statute of limitations determines how much time you have to file your lawsuit. Accordingly:
- The personal injury statute of limitations is generally three years. According to G.S. § 1-52, your lawsuit must be filed no later than three years from the date the accident occurred.
- The wrongful death statute of limitations is generally two years. According to G.S. § 1-53, your lawsuit must be filed no later than two years from the date of your loved one’s accident-related death.
Our personal injury attorneys will make sure your lawsuit is filed on time. Our team will also inform you of any circumstances of your accident that change the timeline. Early involvement also means we have time to investigate your accident, locate witnesses, and negotiate a settlement.
