As each bill comes in, the feeling of anxiety grows. You can’t pay these bills. You are out of work from your motorcycle accident injuries and your medical bills alone are higher than you ever could have imagined.
Just How Much Will This Accident End Up Costing You?
The federal government estimates that the cost of a motorcycle accident injury is between $2,500 and $1.4 million, depending on the severity of the injury. However, those costs may not factor in the lifetime of costs that you might face if you suffered a serious injury. When you are trying to estimate what your motorcycle accident injury will cost you, it is important to consider all of your past, current and future costs including:
- Medical bills. This includes doctor’s visits, hospital stays, surgeries, rehabilitation services (such as physical therapy), medications, assistive medical devices, and other medical expenses.
- Lost income. This may include money you lost if you can’t work at all, or the difference between your income before the accident and your income after the accident if you have to work a different job and/or reduced hours.
- Out-of-pocket expenses. This may include things such as child care, housekeeping, drivers, etc.
- Pain and suffering. You may be entitled to financial compensation for your physical pain and emotional suffering.
Unfortunately, nobody is going to just hand over compensation for these damages to you.
