The Very Real Costs of Motorcycle Accidents in North Carolina

For many motorcyclists, a big part of the joy of riding is the feeling of personal freedom. Exposure to the elements while cruising roads is an inherent part of the thrill.

The unfortunate truth remains that as part of such openness, motorcyclists are also susceptible to a wide range of highly serious and possibly fatal injuries when they are involved in accidents with other motor vehicles. Even when victims are lucky enough to survive motorcycle crashes, the nature of their injuries can often be so severe that they will never have any hope of being able to return to their former states.

If you suffered severe injuries or your loved one was killed in a motorcycle accident in North Carolina, do not delay in contacting the Nye Law Group. Our firm will fight to help you recover every dollar of compensation you are entitled to.

Motorcycle Accident Damages in North Carolina

motorcycle accident lawyerWhen a person files a legal action for damages relating to injuries he or she sustained in a motorcycle crash, the types of damages he or she may be awarded can vary. In most cases, a person will be awarded some combination of economic and noneconomic damages.

Economic damages are the more calculable personal losses, usually intended to cover a victim’s out-of-pocket expenses. Typical kinds of economic damages typically include lost wages and medical bills.

Noneconomic damages are much more subjective because they are not inherently quantifiable. Typical kinds of noneconomic damages include awards for disfigurement or pain and suffering.

In some very limited cases, victims could be entitled to punitive damages. Punitive damages are only awarded in North Carolina cases in which a negligent party acted with malice or willful or wanton misconduct. Negligent drivers arrested for driving while impaired (DWI) after causing motorcycle crashes are one of the most common kinds of possible punitive damage cases.

North Carolina Motorcycle Accident Injuries

People can suffer a variety of possible injuries in a motorcycle accident, including:

  • Road rash
  • Paraplegia
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Fractures (broken bones)
  • Muscle damage
  • Internal organ damage
  • Nerve damage
  • Neck injury

Victims who suffer these kinds of injuries not only face extremely lengthy hospital stays that can result in thousands of dollars of medical expenses, but they often require extensive rehabilitation after being released. The additional care results in even more financial strain.

On top of all of this, many victims are unable to return to their former jobs—and some people are completely unable to return to work in any meaningful capacity. In all of these cases, victims deserve to have the challenges they face resolved by the negligent party that cause their injuries.
