Looking at Both Sides of the Issue
Most traffic law violations and motorist errors are due to negligent driving.
When the negligence causes an accident with injuries, the law states a
breach of the obligation to the other driver occurred. Motorcyclists injured
as a result of negligence have a legal right to seek compensation for
injuries and related costs. Motorcyclists also have the obligation to
The primary issue juries decide when a motorcycle accident case ends up
in a trial is who breached the obligation to the other motorist. Judges
give jurors instructions to use as a basis for a verdict. Primary instructions
usually include the acknowledgement that the motorist and motorcyclist
had an equal obligation to each other. Did they

Calculating Motorcycle Accident Damage
Personal injury cases have two kinds of damages, those capable of being
calculated exactly and those that are not capable of being calculated
accurately. Special damage is the term used to describe damage having
an exact dollar amount attached to it. Pain and suffering are examples
of damages incapable of calculation.
Special damages include lost earnings and earning capacity that happened
in the past, are currently in place, and those in the future that relate
to the motorcycle accident. Medical bills, employment benefits, and other
financial losses fall under the special damages category.
No guidelines for pain and suffering exist. There is no chart of reference
for juries to use when awarding compensation for this category. Judges,
typically, ask juries to use experience, background, and good sense in
making a determination.
Calculating lost earnings is not as easy as it sounds. Past earnings are
no problem. Add up the employment benefits and wages lost due to being
out of work.
Calculating future earnings is more difficult. A lawyer hires an economist
to present lost future earnings accurately to a jury. Based on race, sex,
and age, the federal government developed a statistical measure of work
life expectancy. The measure determines the number of expected work years
in the future. Calculating how the current earning potential projects
into the future is the complicated calculation that requires the expertise
of an economist.
