How Much is My Motorcycle Injury Case Worth?

As Denver motorcycle accident attorneys, one of the first questions our clients ask is how much their motorcycle injury case is worth. We get it; it is natural for people to ask such questions as they evaluate their situation in an attempt to get their life back to normal.

Most cases we handle are private, so we cannot disclose settlement details and how much money clients receive. We can, however,  point you to Thomson Reuters Jury Verdict Research where you will see that in Colorado the average payout for a motorcycle accident is about $74,000.

Variables to Consider with Motorcycle Injury Cases

While $74,000 is about average, that is not always the case. There are a lot of variables that go into determining how much a motorcycle accident case is worth and how much you could potentially get. The first thing to consider is fault. The at-fault driver and their insurance company could owe damages to cover your economic and non-economic losses.

If a loved one died as a result of someone else in a motorcycle accident, there are other damage cap factors. You can collect damages for:

What You Can Get for A Motorcycle Accident Case

Understanding what you can get if you, or someone you know, is injured in a motorcycle case will vary. To get a better feel for a potential settlement will require you to consult with an attorney who understands the nuances of Colorado motorcycle accident law. Call us at 303-372-6145 or schedule a free case consultation online. Again, our job will be to help you make an informed decision about your case. While a windfall settlement would be nice, our number one priority is simply helping you get your life back to normal as much as possible.
