A motorcycle ride through the beautiful streets of Sugar Land, Texas, in the summer months sounds like some folks’ definition of pure happiness—and, why not?
In 2008, Forbes Magazine named Sugar Land as one of America’s Top Suburbs to Live Well. With a robust economic development program, it is not only a great place to live, but also a great place for business.
But, as the saying goes, “accidents do happen.” Although nobody wakes up intending to be involved in a motorcycle accident, the careless driving of another motorist can turn a fun ride into a collision in just seconds.
Each situation differs. Some motorcycle crashes cause the kinds of injuries that require a significant recovery time, or lost time from work. Some other injuries don’t require as much time, but still interfere with a loss of enjoyment of life.
Isn’t the enjoyment of one’s life a very important part of one’s overall well-being?
If you have suffered an injury from a motorcycle accident in Sugar Land, TX and are considering filing a personal injury lawsuit, it might help you to know that even the interference or loss of enjoyment of life can be recovered as money damages from the court. After filing a personal injury case, financial losses are commonly sought. So, damaged property, lost time from work or lost wages, and medical bills can be requested in their exact amounts.
How does a jury determine the value of a person’s loss of enjoyment? They look at the intensity — how bad is the pain or impairment; how long does it last; and how much does it interfere.
