Review these frequently asked questions (FAQs) about motorcycle accidents and motorcycle accident lawsuits to learn more about the process of obtaining compensation for your injuries and losses.


How soon should I meet with a lawyer after a motorcycle accident?

If you have sustained injuries after a motorcycle accident, getting emergency medical care for those injuries will be the most important thing to do. Once your health is no longer in danger, however, meeting with an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer will be the next important step to take. The sooner you are able to consult with a lawyer after the accident, the stronger your case will likely be (and the better chances you will have of obtaining greater compensation awards).


How much is my case worth?

The amount of compensation that you are eligible to receive will depend on the nature and extent of your injuries, as well as the other expenses or costs you have incurred as a result of the motorcycle accident. Generally, cases in which victims have sustained more severe and extensive injuries and damage will be associated with higher compensation amounts. 


How long after a motorcycle accident do I have to file a lawsuit?

In Colorado, you will have up to two years after the date of the motorcycle accident during which you can file a lawsuit against any negligent parties who caused the accident (i.e., there is a two-year statute of limitations for motorcycle accident lawsuits). After this two years has passed, you cannot legally file a lawsuit to seek compensation for your motorcycle accident injuries.


How long do I have to wait to receive a settlement?

The short answer is that it depends. While some motorcycle accident lawsuits can be resolved in a matter of weeks, in other cases when insurance companies may be especially difficult to deal with (because, for example, they are trying to undercut a claim), it could take months or even years for a settlement to be worked out. The good news is, however, that our skilled Denver motorcycle accident lawyers will work tirelessly to help motorcycle accident victims secure the maximum possible settlement regardless of how long it may take.


Can I receive compensation if I’m hit by someone who doesn’t have insurance?

If you have uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage as part of your own insurance coverage, then yes – you can be compensated for your injuries, expenses and losses if you are hit by another motorist who is not insured or who is underinsured.
