How Much Is My Motorcycle Case Worth?
Finding the value of a Michigan motorcycle accident
injury case is dependent on a number of factors. First, the severity of the injuries is obviously crucial. A person who needs surgery and has a long road to recovery will most likely have a more valuable case than an individual who had more conservative, less invasive treatment.
Negligence or fault is also important. To get pain and suffering compensation
, the plaintiff must prove the at-fault vehicle was at least 50% for causing the accident. If the at-fault driver is 50% or more at fault, then the plaintiff can make a claim for pain suffering. However, the defendant can deduct the percentage of fault the plaintiff contributed to causing the accident. This is known as comparative fault.
For example, if the plaintiff is 20% at-fault for causing the accident, and a jury awarded $100,000 in damages, the defendant can deduct $20,000 from the award, allowing a recovery of $80,000 for the plaintiff.
