It is impossible to answer your question without knowing more facts. Did she require emergency room treatment? Is she currently treating for her knee injury? Will she require knee surgery? Is she in physical therapy? Will she make a complete recovery or have permanent injury to her knee? Did she sustain any other injuries? What are the size of her medical bills to date? Liability obviously doesn't appeaer to be a factor given the fact that she was a passenger. You also seem to have a general idea about what her economic wage loss will entail. All of these factors go into deciding the value of her case. You are well advised to have your wife hire a personal injury attorney of her choice to assist her on her claim. She will receive a much better result with an attorney than attempting to settle the case on your own. The statute of limitations for personal injury in Wisconsin is three years. Under 893.54, failure to file a lawsuit within three years from the date of the accident, will forever bar her claim.

Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle ownership has surged in recent years. Unfortunately, many automobile drivers don't do a good job of sharing the road with bikes, meaning that the number of accidents, injuries and fatalities have also grown in recent years. Have you been injured or has a loved one been killed in a motorcycle accident? Under your state's personal injury laws, you may be entitled to money for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, motorcycle repair costs and other accident-related expenses. Personal injury attorneys with experience representing motorcycle accident victims can work with you to get the compensation you deserve from both your insurance company and any parties (such as another driver or motorcycle manufacturer) that may bear responsibility for your accident. Act quickly to hire a lawyer--although deadlines vary from state to state, you have a limited period of time to file a personal injury lawsuit.
