What is Recoverable in a Motorcycle Accident in San Antonio?

Last updated on: July 10, 2015


Motorcycle accidents can be severe in nature and cause major damage. If you are in a motorcycle accident, you have the right, under the law, to recover certain types of damages. Some of these damages can be broken down into personal, property, and punitive.


Personal recovery includes both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages include all medical expenses related to the accident, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, and any other damage that can be reduced to an exact amount. You also have the right to recover non-economic damages, which are pain, suffering, and mental anguish.


If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, you will also have a claim for the property damage to your motorcycle. If the motorcycle can be repaired, you have the right to recover the amount of the repairs. If it is a total loss, then you are entitled to the fair market value of the motorcycle right before the collision occurred. If your motorcycle is repaired, and the repaired version is worth less than what the pre-collision value was, you have the right to recover the diminished value of your motorcycle.


Finally, you may have a right to recover punitive or exemplary damages. These damages are intended not to compensate the plaintiff, but rather to punish the defendant for especially bad acts, such as drinking and driving, or operating a cell phone while driving your vehicle, or any other sort of grossly negligent or reckless conduct.
