Questions For Your Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that you may have questions about whether you have a case or the timing involved with filing a motorcycle accident lawsuit. Here are answers to what many of our clients want to know.

How long does a motorcycle accident lawsuit take?

Unfortunately, there is no simple answer for this. Depending on the specifics of the motorcycle accident, the injuries, and the insurance companies involved, it can take anywhere from a few months to a few years before everything is settled.

Here are a few factors that can affect timing:

  • The specifics of the accident. For example, if the driver who caused the motorcycle accident was operating a personal vehicle, the case will be settled faster than one that involved a government vehicle.
  • The extent of your injuries. It’s important to know the full extent of your injuries and the impact the motorcycle accident will have on the rest of your life to make sure the damages cover everything.
  • The actions of the insurance companies. Each insurer has its own approval process for handling claims. We continue to push them, but certain companies take longer than others.
  • Going to court. Most motorcycle accident cases settle out of court, but if your case goes to trial, there are rules about when certain events need to happen. For example, once you file a lawsuit, the other party has 30 days to answer your claim. In general, though, lawsuits take longer than negotiating a settlement out of court.

Why do people settle out of court instead of going to trial?

Around 95% of accident claims are settled out of court. Your attorney can share the benefits and risks of going to trial for your specific case, but here are some general reasons people choose to settle a motorcycle accident claim outside the courtroom:

Lawsuits come with risks. You may lose your case entirely, or a jury could award damages that are less than you might get in a settlement.

  • Timing. Even with the best motorcycle accident lawyer, a trial usually takes longer, which means you may not receive compensation for your medical costs or lost wages for months or even years. Having a pending lawsuit also prevents you from closing this difficult chapter of your life.
  • Privacy. The results of a lawsuit become part of the public record, which may not feel comfortable to you.

    I worked with Adam Richards and his team. They were empathetic to my situation and extremely professional. I don't know what I... would have done without their expert guidance and counsel. Adam really knows his stuff, and it was clear he had an excellent rapport with all who assisted in the case. Adam's communication abilities were next level. I never had to worry about getting ahold of him when needed. I know he and his team will continue to knock it out of the park for all future clients like they did for me.read more

    I am so glad I found cooper Elliot. My attorneys Jon and Adam helped me through the entire process. After a traumatic experience... in my life I was confused and in pain. They worked tirelessly to become familiar with all the details of my story and represented me in a way that made me more able to process and understand the trauma myself. This was huge for me, while there’s still healing to do, I can do that work now instead of staying in a purgatory of cognitive dissonance. They didn’t just win justice for me, they are a significant part of my healing journey. They were validating, non judgmental, honest, and knowledgeable.read more

    I honestly struggle to find the words to describe how incredible this firm is, especially Jeffrey Kenny and Sean Alto. 7 years... ago, my family started a journey through a nightmare. When the criminal justice system fell woefully short, Jeff agreed to take on our incredibly challenging and lengthy case, with no other reason than that it was the right thing to do, and he believed we deserved justice. There were so many times when I would have understood if they walked away, but they refused and vowed to get us the justice we deserved, and almost 7 years later, they have given my family just that. I will never, ever, forget what they have done for us. We were never just another case. They made us feel like we were their ONLY case! Thank you will never come close to the gratitude and respect I have for Jeff and Sean, as well as for Cooper Elliott. They will be superheroes in our home, forever!read more

    Adam Richards is the best attorney I have ever met. He is responsive and very patient (I had a lot of questions) and he truly... cares. He fought hard for me and he stands up to the bully. he is not afraid to take on anyone. Anytime I hear someone who has a legal issue I go out of my way to recommend Adam. He is unlike any attorney I have ever met. He is compassionate and he always answers his phone. There is no way I would have got the results I received with any other attorney. He was a bulldog in my case and really went to bat for me. Words cant express how grateful I am to him. His actions personally affected my life in a very positive way. He protected me in so many ways I couldn't begin to name them. It is a great feeling when you know your attorney outmatches the other party's attorney and it is obvious.read more
