Receiving Monetary Compensation For Motorcycle Accidents In New Hampshire
When it comes to automobile accidents, a motorcyclist faces an increased risk of suffering from serious bodily injury on New Hampshire’s roadways because they must share the road space with automobiles that are much larger in size. Unlike motorists who drive standard sized passenger vehicles, an individual who drives a motorcycle, because of its open air design, is more exposed to injury. Because motorcyclists are less protected than motorists in a truck, bus, or car, the damages they suffer can be quite severe indeed.
In New Hampshire, a motorcycle accident can occur for a variety of different reasons. Automobile motorists frequently become distracted and may not see a motorcyclist who is sharing the road with them. Furthermore, some motorists mistakenly believe they have more rights on the roadway than a motorcyclist’s does. Consequently, they become enraged when a motorcyclist is nearby and causes them to have to slow down. As a result, these enraged drivers begin to drive more aggressively.
Complicating the situation even further is the fact that New Hampshire’s roadways are often crowded, which increases the number of dangerous collisions that occur.

Compensation For Motorcycle Injuries
The majority of motorcycle injuries that result directly from an accident are considered eligible for personal injury compensation. A motorcyclist who suffers injuries caused by a negligent motorist can receive monetary payments for their suffering. Just a few of the types of recoverable damages that are possible in such a claim are disfigurement, pain and suffering, economic loss, emotional distress, and replacement or repair of the damaged motorcycle.
A New Hampshire court will divide compensatory damages into two categories: specific and general. Specific damages include payments for medical expenses and bills, the cost of medication, physical therapy, and ongoing medical care. General damages are those that flow directly from the injury itself. This list includes damages for physical and emotional damages.
It is not uncommon for severe motorcycle injuries to result in expensive medical treatments and extensive recovery times. Naturally, a victim would prefer to avoid having a motorcycle accident altogether; however, should an accident occur, such cases can be worth a considerable amount of money. Accidents of less severity result in less compensation, particularly if there is less lost wages, emotional damages and effects, and pain and suffering involved. A variety of tools and measures will be used to calculate what the monetary value of a claim is.

It is a difficult task to adequately assess the value of a personal injury claim, but each of our lawyers has the expertise and know how required to do so.
