Here are a few circumstances that could affect a plaintiff’s decision to settle a motorcycle accident case:
- The plaintiff has been denied basic compensation such as medical care. If the motorcycle accident victim has incurred significant medical costs and the at-fault driver refuses to pay, it is important to pursue compensation.
- The plaintiff has been denied lost wages or other calculable economic damages. Motorcycle accident victims are entitled to these payments and should not settle a case without them.
- The plaintiff has suffered permanent disability as a result of the accident. Motorcycle crashes can result in serious physical and mental injury, and a plaintiff who has been permanently disabled may be entitled to compensation for his or her injuries, loss of future income, and changes in lifestyle.
