Pennsylvania Motorcycle Accident Compensation Claim for PTSD

A motorcycle accident is a serious and unnerving event for even the most seasoned rider. The speed, suddenness, and violence of an accident is jarring to a motorcycle rider both physically and mentally. A properly prepared Pennsylvania motorcycle accident compensation claim will recover damages for injuries both to the body and the psyche. In my years of practice as a Pennsylvania motorcycle accident lawyer working with clients on motorcycle accident compensation claims, I have seen many cases where post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is suffered by my clients as a result of their accident.

Motorcycle Bodily Injury Settlements

I just settled a substantial six-figure case for a Pennsylvania motorcycle accident client, who sustained serious injuries to his leg, when he laid his bike down in order to avoid impact with a vehicle that pulled out from a stop sign into his path of travel.     Although most of my clients have been severely injured in a motorcycle accident, some, like this one, have far greater injuries than others.  The only reason this client’s motorcycle bodily injury settlement wasn’t for seven-figures was because he was retired and didn't have a wage-loss claim to put on the board.  Although he did have quite a substantial health insurance lien against his recovery which was boardable.   The Right Insurance Makes a Big Difference My motorcycle accident client was very fortunate to have had … [Read more...]
