You May Collect Damages for Medical Expenses
Healthcare costs generally represent a significant cause of concern for motorcyclists after a wreck. Motorcycles offer operators little protection, meaning bikers often sustain serious injuries, including concussions, broken bones, amputations, and paralysis.
Working with a lawyer can give you the opportunity to seek compensation to cover all of these losses. You may receive funds for your:
- Emergency treatment at the scene of a motorcycle accident
- Trip in an ambulance to a medical facility
- Medical tests and assessments to diagnose your injuries
- Time spent in a hospital
- Any required medical procedures, including surgeries
- Rehabilitation and physical therapy
You may also receive compensation for any medications ordered by your doctor and the expenses associated with traveling to your medical appointments. Your lawyer can track all of these losses on your behalf.
Can You Get Compensation for Modifications for Your Home?
A temporary or permanent disability may require modifying your house, property, and vehicles. For example, you may need to install ramps at your home if you require a wheelchair after your motorcycle accident.
In this situation, a motorcycle accident lawyer may include these damages in your claim for compensation. We’ll discuss these costs if they apply to your situation.

You May Receive Compensation for Lost Wages
Many motorcyclists must take time off work to recover from injuries caused by collisions. You may have to take weeks or months away from your job, depending on the severity of your injuries.
We can help you seek compensation for your lost:
Some injuries may leave you with a disabling condition. In this situation, we can consider a claim to bring you funds for your lost earning capacity.
You may qualify for additional compensation if your recovery prevented you from taking advantage of opportunities to advance your career. We’ll discuss all possible forms of compensation for lost pay when you contact us.
The Other Driver May Cover Your Property Damage
In some cases, you may qualify to receive compensation for any property damaged in your motorcycle accident. For example, the at-fault driver may have to cover the costs of any repairs to your motorcycle.
Sometimes, collisions total motorcycles due to the larger size of other vehicles on the road. In this situation, the negligent driver may have to cover the cost of replacing your destroyed vehicle.
Your attorney may also focus on other property damage caused by the wreck, like the destruction of any electronic devices. We’ll discuss all possible forms of compensation for your situation when you contact us.

Does Arizona Grant Punitive Damages for Motorcycle Accidents?
Some states allow you to seek punitive damages after an accidental injury. These damages act as a way to punish the liable party and do not directly correlate to the losses caused by your motorcycle collision.
Arizona technically allows for punitive damages in some cases. However, the state only awards this form of compensation if someone causes injuries with an “evil mind.” Therefore, many people do not receive punitive compensation.
