Medical expenses:  You could be compensated for any past and future costs associated with your motorcycle injuries, such as ambulance ride, hospital stay, treatments, rehabilitation, or anything else.

 

Pain and Suffering:  This area of non-economic compensation damages is typically harder to prove, but factors such as the extent of pain and for how long as well as the the nature of the injury, will be considered for pain and suffering compensation.

 

Mental anguish: This type of compensation refers to the emotional pain the victim endures due to the motorcycle accident; this could include fear, embarrassment, depression, anxiety, grief, worry, or any other negative emotion.

 

Loss of Consortium: The deceased's spouse may be awarded compensation for the loss of companionship, services, aid, assistance in a case of a motorcycle accident wrongful death.

 

Surviving parents of a minor may be compensated for the loss of love, companionship, and affection due to their wrongful death. Likewise, minors may be awarded compensation in wrongful death cases for loss of service, assistance, aid, companionship, and society.

Common Seattle Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcyclists are very exposed on the busy roadways of Seattle; therefore, if a motorcycle accident occurs, injuries tend to be significant such as;

 

  • Road Rash:  This results from your body sliding across the pavement, causing severe skin abrasions.
  • Degloving:  More severe than road rash is when your skin is completely removed, exposing your tendons and muscles from your hand or foot. This typically occurs while traveling at high speeds, and you collide with a vehicle.
  • Broken Bones: The most common injury is broken bones, especially to your leg, elbow, shoulder, pelvic fractures.
  • Biker’s Arm: When a person is ejected off the motorcycle, most of the impact is placed on the upper arm. This can cause severe nerve damage or even paralysis.
  • Brain Damage:  Wearing a helmet can help save your life, but the most severe consequence of a motorcycle accident is brain damage from your head striking an object or the pavement.
  • Burns: If a fire ignites due to a gasoline spill and your body is burned is a severe accident injury consequence.
