Motorcycle accidents have the potential to cause catastrophic and lasting injuries. Without the protection of a car’s steel frame and seatbelt, riders are more likely to experience serious injuries or lose their lives in traffic accidents – even if they wear helmets, boots, jackets, gloves, and other safety gear.

From our offices in Providence, we have taken on motorcycle accident cases across Rhode Island since 1975.

Compensation for Motorcycle Accident Claims
A person who has been injured in a motorcycle accident may be entitled to economic and non-economic damages from the party that is responsible for causing the collision. Depending on the specific accident, this may be another driver, the manufacturer of a motorcycle or auto part, or another party. In the vast majority of cases, the damages are paid by the at-fault party’s insurance provider, but the injured rider’s own policy may be used to cover some damages as well.
A motorcycle accident settlement or award may include compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Ongoing medical care
- Physical therapy
- Reconstructive or plastic surgery
- Bodily harm and disfigurement
- Loss of wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Property damage
- Emotional trauma and physical pain
- Funeral costs
- Loss of companionship/consortium
When our Rhode Island motorcycle accident lawyers take on a case of this kind, we consider every potential source of compensation to maximize our client’s recovery. The consequences of a collision are far-reaching and should be carefully considered before accepting any settlement offer.
