Common Types of Motorcycle Accidents
Left-Turn Collisions – These accidents can be extremely dangerous and even deadly. When another vehicle turns across traffic, they enter your lane. If they aren't aware of you or don't execute their turn fast enough, you could collide with their vehicle causing serious injuries.
Single-Motorcycle Accident – Motorcycles can be prone to skidding, tipping, and sliding. If you've been injured in a single-bike crash, you could be entitled to compensation. There may be issues that caused your accident that are not obvious.
Rear-End Accidents – If you're riding a motorcycle and are hit from behind, you could suffer serious injuries from the collision. You could be entitled to compensation for your injuries and missed time at work.
Drunk Driving Accidents – Drunk driving affects all drivers – no matter the vehicle. Despite the awareness that's been raised against driving under the influence, some people still make the decision to drive drunk. If an intoxicated driver has injured you, get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
There May Be Time Limits to Your Claim
Injury cases have time limits – otherwise known as statutes of limitations – that may affect your claim. Contact us right away, and we'll get started on your case.
Statutes of limitations restrict the time period that a person can file a lawsuit.
A personal injury action must be filed within two years of the date when the injury occurred.
However, there is a "discovery rule," which, in limited cases, extends the time for filing a personal injury action.
