Is There a Time Limit for a Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit?

It is important to understand that you must file a personal injury lawsuit within a certain period of time. A procedural rule known as a statute of limitations requires most motorcycle accident lawsuits to be filed within two years from the date the accident occurred. The statute of limitations can prevent your case from being heard by a court regardless of how strong your claims are. This is one of the many reasons why you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible following a motorcycle accident.

Case Studies

  • $1,140,000.00 Settlement

    Our client was significantly injured in a motor vehicle accident. She required two back surgeries as a result. However, the insurance company did not believe that her injuries were real because the property damage resulting from the collision was less than $1,000.00. Sutliff & Stout was engaged and filed a lawsuit. After over a year of litigation and right before trial, the insurance company agreed to pay $1,140,000.00. The net recovery to the client was $502,817.00 in addition to the payment of over $200,000.00 in medical expenses.

  • $350,000.00 Settlement

    Sutliff & Stout settled Doyle’s case for $350,000. Doyle was involved in a head-on collision in Marshall, Texas. He had a non-operated neck injury. The insurance company did not want to compensate him for his injuries because it said that he had prior neck problems (although those problems were unrelated to the injuries he sustained in the accident). Sutliff & Stout retained various medical professionals to prove that the prior problems were unrelated and that Doyle needed to be compensated for his injuries. Net recovery to client was $176,691.00.
