The latest data available from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) shows that in 2018, more than 4,000 motorcyclists were killed in traffic accidents. While motorcyclists need to exercise caution while riding, so do other drivers as well. The negligent actions of a driver behind the wheel can cause devastating accidents to motorcyclists.

Contact Our Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Immediately
Our motorcycle accident attorneys are here to help you start building your case immediately. You may think after an accident that you have all the time in the world, but the opposite is true. The longer you sit on your accident claim, the more difficult it will be to build a strong case for negotiations.
You shouldn’t wait to contact our law firm. Our lawyers will help you:
- Gather and collect critical evidence for your case.
- Negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf.
- Represent your best interests if your claim escalates to trial.
- Ensure that all of your important legal deadlines get met.
- Handle all of the communications you need to take care of with other parties.
Don’t underestimate how much an attorney will help you. It is notoriously difficult to file a claim and negotiate a settlement on your own when you have little to no legal knowledge.
Will Insurance Companies Settle Fairly for My Motorcycle Accident?
The answer is no – don’t expect the insurance companies to do anything that’s in your favor. If an insurance adjuster meets with you and offers you a quick settlement, never accept it. While it may seem like they’re on your side, the truth is that they only want you to settle fast at a low amount so they can absolve themselves of paying any large amount of compensation.
Motorcyclists are often looked down upon in traffic accidents. They get perceived as reckless speed junkies that have no regard for traffic rules. We know that this isn’t the case, and we will fight hard to represent your best interests.
How Much Is the Average Settlement for Motorcycle Accidents?
The amount of your settlement will highly depend on the damages that you sustain. Typically, in a motorcycle accident, many people sustain damages like:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Disability and disfigurement
- Various medical expenses
- Assisted living expenses
- Substitute services
- Lost wages and reduced earning capability
- Vehicle repair and replacement
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium
- Wrongful death
Regardless of whether or not your damages are listed, our motorcycle accident lawyers will pursue compensation for all of them. As long as your damages were a direct result of your motorcycle accident, we can get them covered.
While it’s hard to say just how much you can recover in your settlement, on average, you can receive anywhere between $40,000 to $200,000. Remember, these are just rough estimates, and there’s no way to tell accurately how much your settlement will be without first consulting with one of our lawyers.
