Tampa Motorcycle Injury Settlements
You’ve been in a motorcycle accident and are injured. Plus your bike is totaled. Should you contact a Tampa motorcycle injury lawyer?
What Does a Tampa Motorcycle Injury Lawyer Do?
Your Tampa motorcycle injury lawyer will keep in contact with the police, the insurers, and with you. You will know where your case stands and what to expect. You will have peace of mind while you recover from your injuries. Once the liability (fault) for the accident is determined, you can move on to monetary concerns. Your attorney will talk with you about settling and talking your case to trial. What is the difference?
Settlement and Trial Value
The settlement value is the amount your case will reasonably settle for. The trial value is what you could win during a trial. The settlement value will be lower than the trial value. However, with the trial, you may lose the trial and be awarded nothing. Your Tampa motorcycle injury lawyer has the background to advise you as to your odds of winning.
How Much Am I Looking at?
Damages come in two varieties, special and non-specific damages. Special damages are those that you can calculate exactly. These might include the cost of your motorcycle, medical bills and past, present, and future lost earnings/earning capacity. These are generally fairly easy to calculate.
Non-specific damages are pain and suffering. There is no easy way to determine the monetary value for pain and suffering. Instead, a judge will instruct the jury to use good sense and experience to determine what they will award you.
