Riding a motorcycle is an awesome, freedom kind of experience. But it is a thrill that does come with some risk.
Ask anyone who had ridden a motorcycle for any period of time. They have probably experienced some close calls or scary experiences that have made them consider parking the bike forever.
If you or someone you care about has gotten into a motorcycle accident, you may have a lot of questions on what to do when this type of incident occurs. One big question everyone asks is “How much money can I get?” Well, let’s slow down for a second and take a picture of what happened.
A Couple of Scenarios
Damages have to do with injuries and other losses connected to the accident. The worse the injury, the higher amount of money typically awarded.
To put a value on a motorcycle accident case there are two things we need to look at; liability and damages. Liability is more of who was at fault.
And proving liability is the difference between a small settlement and a large settlement. Depending on how much damage to you and the bike also play a part in the amount.
The settlement is probably small because you didn’t get hurt, and there is hardly any damage. Most insurance companies will offer you a little bit of money to go away and leave them alone.
Insurance companies are in the business of protecting shareholders money. They know how to fight and play dirty if it saves them a penny. So if you are hurt, don’t take the chance of losing what you are entitled to receive.
