How long will it take to resolve my motorcycle accident claim?
How long it will take to resolve a motorcycle accident claim under Idaho law varies dramatically. The one thing you can say at least is if you’re in a motorcycle accident, you probably have serious injuries because you don’t have much protection of the car. At the outset of that, you need to at least allow yourself to get to the point of reaching a point of medical stability, which doesn’t mean that you’re cured. It only means that you’ve reached a point that you have a reasonable handle on how the injuries you have had are going to be dealt with in the future. As an example, we represented a guy who had a motorcycle accident and lost his leg above the knee— obviously, a terrible injury. It took a while for him to even get to the point of being able to reasonably evaluate what his future looked like because there’s a lot of stuff that he had to go through and there’s still a lot of stuff that he was going to need to go through for the rest of his life. That’s a case that was litigated extensively for a long period of time.
If, on the other hand, you happen to be in a motorcycle accident where, thank goodness, you weren’t all that badly injured, there’s a reasonable chance that you could settle the case relatively early on, say within a couple of months of the accident. If you have to go through trial, whether it’s a small injury or a large injury, you’re probably looking at something in the neighborhood of 18 months to 2 years from the date the lawsuit filed. Here in Boise would be about 18 months to 2 years, in the surrounding counties, all the counties in Idaho would be at or about the same. If you have such a claim, of course, you need someone who has actually had the experience of pursuing such claims in court. There are lawyers out there that will take on your claim if you let them but really don’t have the experience of having been arguing in front of juries on your behalf or the client’s behalf and that’s what you need on your side in pursuing such a claim. Our firm has been doing this for many years. We have legal horsepower and experience here to bring to the table. If you have such a claim, please feel free to call anytime. All our attorneys work very closely together handling cases like these.
