Do I have to file a lawsuit to recover for my losses?
We will never file a lawsuit without your express approval. In fact, not all accidents require that a lawsuit be filed before you can recover for your losses. Our motorcycle accident attorney can work on your behalf with an insurance company or the other driver’s attorney to reach a fair agreement in a timely manner. More cases than not are concluded without the need to go through a lengthy court process. However, we are committed to acting as a zealous advocate on your behalf and pursuing the case as far as necessary to ensure that you recover for your losses.
What types of damages can I recover?
If you are injured in one of these motorcycle accidents through the fault of another driver then we can help you recover for a variety of losses. The most common form of damages that a victim will seek are known as economic damages. These are for items that have a fixed monetary value, like property damage, lost wages, and medical expenses.
In addition, in some cases it is appropriate to seek non-economic damages. These are usually sought on a case-by-case basis depending on one’s unique situation. Non-economic damages are more difficult to determine because they are not connected to a fixed monetary loss. These cover things such as pain and suffering, loss of companionship, and emotional distress.
How long does it usually take to resolve?
If a case is settled without the need to go through a lengthy court process than it can often be settled within several months. However, if more aggressive tactics need to be taken, then it is possible for the resolution to take much longer to be finally resolved. It is not uncommon for a lawsuit and trial to take a year or even longer to be finished.
Are there rules about how long I have to pursue my claim?
As with most types of legal claims, there is a statute of limitations in California that requires motorcycle accident victims to file their claim in a timely fashion. In most cases the law requires victims to file suit within two years after the accident to recover for personal injuries. However, if a public entity is involved then suit may need to be filed within 6 months. These requirements make it important to contact an attorney to protect your rights as soon as possible.
