Motorcycle accidents can lead to long-term pain and suffering

Motorcyclists in Colorado are likely thrilled to be able to take to the open roads after the long, cold winter. With the excitement and freedom come the hazards of riding without any of the protective systems and devices offered to motorists. Motorcycle accidents are known to cause severe injuries, but the physical and emotional stress, known as pain and suffering, is different for each victim.

If the negligence of another party caused the injuries, economic damages might be recoverable through the Colorado civil justice system. Economic damages like medical expenses, lost wages and property damage are easy to prove with invoices, sales receipts and statements. However, determining the value of a claim for noneconomic damages is more complicated.

These are called general damages, and they include mental anguish, emotional distress, physical impairment or disfigurement, possible shortened lifespan and loss of reputation, along with loss of companionship and life enjoyment. There are limited guidelines and standards to aid the assessment of these damages to put a dollar value to the claim for compensation. Courts typically consider the severity of injuries, the nature and location of the disfigurement and scarring, along with the expected recovery time. The potential for long-term consequences will also be evaluated.

Navigating a civil lawsuit is a complicated process, and for this reason, most victims of motorcycle accidents in Colorado seek the support and guidance of an experienced personal injury attorney. A lawyer can assist with establishing negligence as well as documenting economic and noneconomic damages for adjudication by the court. The attorney can explain the Colorado state caps for damages and make sure that the claim is filed within the time limit allowed by the statute of limitations.
