Motorcycle crash claims must be made within 2 years

We recently discussed how motorcycle accident fatalities are increasing, but that injuries from motorcycle accidents are declining. For the men and women who are injured in motorcycle accidents, a new lifestyle might be necessary after the accident. This is especially true if the injuries were very serious, such as spinal cord or brain injuries.

We know that you might decide that you want to do something to hold the driver who slammed into your motorcycle accountable. You have the option of seeking compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. In Illinois, this must be done within two years, so you should make sure you keep that time limit in mind while you consider your next steps.

Seeking compensation for the motorcycle crash is one way to get help financially. A successful claim for compensation could provide you with the funds you need to cover medical bills and other expenses that you had because of the accident. If you were out of work because of the accident, you could seek benefits for lost wages.

It is important that we start working on your case as soon as possible, as we will need to preserve the evidence from the accident to be able to prove your case. We have to show that the other driver was at fault for the accident and that you suffered from injuries in the accident that led to the financial damages you are claiming. We will work on your behalf to tie all of these points together and to get your case moving forward as quickly as possible.
