An Injured Iowa Motorcyclist Needs Compensation for His Injuries

It would be impossible and irresponsible to give you a specific dollar amount online. Every motorcycle crash and every injury that results from a motorcycle crash is unique. However, we can tell you what a fair settlement should include, what factors influence the amount of a proposed settlement, and how to find out more about the specific amount your case may be worth.

You Deserve Compensation for All of Your Motorcycle Crash Injuries

This includes damages for your past, current, and future:

  • Medical expenses. All of your health care costs that are related to your bike crash injuries including ambulance rides, hospital stays, surgeries, medications, doctors’ visits, physical therapy, and other rehabilitation therapies should be included in your recovery.
  • Lost income. Any income that you are unable to earn because of your injuries may be compensated. This includes income from wages and self-employment, and it includes a full loss of income if you can’t work at all or a partial loss of income if you can’t work as much as you did prior to the accident.
  • Physical pain and emotional suffering. These may be your most significant damages and the hardest to value. However, you deserve compensation for all of your pain and suffering, and an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer can help you value these damages and recover for them.
  • Out-of-pocket costs. Any other costs that are related to your accident may be recovered.

The value of these damages depends on the quality of the evidence that you have that proves who was at fault for the crash and the value of the evidence that proves the value of your damages. Additionally, whether you are willing to accept the risk and uncertainty of going to trial should factor into your decision about whether or not to accept a proposed settlement.
