Filing Your Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit on Time in Oyster Bay

Accident victims in Oyster Bay should be aware of the statute of limitations that applies to their cases. In personal injury lawsuits, you typically have three years to submit your case, as highlighted in CVP § 214. You have an even stricter deadline to follow when it comes to wrongful death cases, as EPT § 5-4.1 explains. You generally only have two years to file your wrongful death lawsuit.

Don’t wait to get started on your case, as certain exceptions may change the statute of limitations that applies to your case. The sooner you hire us, the more time we have to collect time-sensitive evidence like witness statements and surveillance footage.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents That May Entitle You to Compensation

In our 85+ years of legal experience, we’ve seen motorcycle accidents happen in a variety of ways. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents that could entitle you to compensation include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Faulty bike or car parts
  • Driving under the influence of drugs
  • Speeding
  • Failure to check blind spots
  • Poor road conditions
  • Aggressive driving or “road rage”

Our team will gather evidence to prove the cause of your accident. Some of the types of evidence we will use include:

  • Photos and videos from the accident scene
  • The police report
  • Statements from lay persons and expert witnesses
  • Surveillance footage from nearby stores or restaurants
  • Your medical bills and records

What to Do After Your Oyster Bay Crash

Injured motorcyclists have a lot to consider after an accident, and you might be unsure where you should start. Our team recommends you take the following actions after your accident:

  • Get immediate medical attention. Seeing a doctor not only protects your health, but it also proves that your injuries were serious enough to warrant treatment.
  • Gather witness contact information. If your injuries allow, collect the names and phone numbers of any eyewitnesses. However, do not push yourself to do this if you risk worsening your injuries. Our team can gather this evidence for you.
  • Speak to the police officer, but avoid accepting fault or placing blame. Try to say as little as you can about the accident until you’ve hired us. You don’t want to accidentally say something that could be used against you later on.
  • Stay off social media. Although it’s tempting to update your friends and family about your condition, don’t post online until your case is settled. The insurance company may try to take your words out of context.
  • You can also hire a lawyer from our firm right after your accident. We’ll explain all the steps you need to take and build a case to help you recover the compensation you deserve
