What are Illinois motorcycle accident cases worth?

A lot of the clients that we work with that have been victims of motorcycle accidents want the bottom line.  They want to know exactly what a case could return them through either a jury award or settlement amount.  In responding to this question, we try and outline where their compensation would arise from, including the following:

  • Any out-of-pocket expenses you experienced due to the accident.
  • Any pain and suffering or intangible losses you experienced due to the accident.
  • Any losses loved ones suffered because someone died in the accident.

Illinois motorcycle accident cases worth?Generally, the out-of-pocket losses are easy to predict in trial but the other two are more difficult to forecast because juries have wide latitude to award recovery and often given sums as much as two or three times what the economic losses were.  Therefore, to give a better sense of what they can expect, we also highlight what other plaintiffs have obtained to paint the landscape of what is possible in litigation and we reproduced those numbers below.  However, they are not determinative and every estimate should look squarely at the facts and circumstances of the particular case at hand.
