If you were a rider or passenger in a motorcycle accident due to the negligence of others, you might be entitled to compensation. At Reid B. Wissner Law Offices, we have the experience and skill to help you manage your accident claims case and receive the compensation you deserve.
Liability and Damages
In general, whoever caused the motorcycle accident is liable and will have to pay for the resulting damages. However, New York has unique laws regarding fault, so contact our attorney to receive a full explanation of the applicable regulations in your unique situation.
If you were the victim of a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation for injury and any damage to your vehicle. Our lawyer will fight to ensure that you receive everything you should in these circumstances.
Going to Court
You may have to attend court if the other party in the motorcycle accident refuses to compensate you for your loss. If this is the case, our lawyer will be there every step of the way to make sure that you understand exactly what is happening with your case and that you receive the best possible outcome.
Calculating Past Loss and Future Loss
When calculating past loss, you add up the earnings and employment benefits you lost from being out of work due to the motorcycle accident. This could include your salary, health plans, vacation days, etc.
Calculating future losses is a bit more complicated since it’s difficult knowing what the future may hold. These cases usually involve the lawyers hiring an economist and determining what your future earnings may be from projections and analytics and how the motorcycle accident will affect these.
