Question:

How long will my motorcycle accident case take?

Answer:

The other day I had a new client call in. He’d been very seriously injured in a motorcycle crash. A question he had for me was, “How long will this process last?” I told him there are different stages. Motorcycle Accident Settlement Timeline The first stage is called pre-suit; it’s before we file a lawsuit. During that time period, you would be getting the medical treatment you need to treat your very serious injuries from that motorcycle crash. At the end of that time period, we would submit a demand, asking that the insurance carrier do the right thing. If they don’t, then we will file suit. You must be patient. It can be a lengthy process. Typically, we’ll have depositions, we’ll exchange paper discovery, and then we’ll have a mediation, which is like a settlement conference. Again, if the insurance company doesn’t do the right thing and settle the case at mediation, we get a trial date and we would try that case.
