If you’ve experienced a motorcycle accident at the hands of another driver, the law is on your side. Drivers have a duty to drive responsibly and practice safety while on the road. Failing to do this can result in serious and life-threatening injuries to pedestrians, motorcyclists, and other drivers. These injuries must be compensated so that victims may receive the justice and reparations they deserve. If you’re wondering how long a motorcycle accident lawsuit takes, keep reading to learn more.
How Long Does A Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit Take?
The average time it takes to settle a motorcycle accident lawsuit is between six months and one year from the date of the accident. Most motorcycle accident lawsuit cases are resolved in just a few months. But other factors can cause the time it takes to settle much longer. If your case is complicated or ends up going to court, it may take over a year to settle your motorcycle accident lawsuit.
Who is at Fault for Most Motorcycle Accidents?
Motorcycle accidents occur much more frequently than other auto vehicle accidents. Over 41% of motorcycle crashes are single-vehicle crashes, meaning that the motorcyclist is the only person who was driving. Meanwhile, 50% of motorcycle crashes involve two vehicles, usually a motorcycle and a standard car or truck. The car driver is generally at fault for the motorcycle accident in these incidents.
What is the Most Common Major Motorcycle Injury?
A motorcycle accident can cause light, severe, and even life-threatening injuries. Here are some of the most common major motorcycle injuries:
- Skull Fracture
- Road Rash
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Muscle Damage
- Nerve Damage
- Cuts and Bruises
- Neck Injuries
If you’ve been in a motorcycle accident, the most important thing you can do is receive care for your injuries as soon as possible. If your injuries result from another driver’s actions, you may have a case for a lawsuit.
Where Do Most Motorcycle Accidents Occur?
According to the United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), most two-vehicle accidents involving motorcycles occur at intersections. Intersection accidents commonly happen when a car turns left as a motorcycle passes through the intersection. Most motorcycle accidents also occur in urban settings rather than rural ones.
