Unfortunately, there is no simple answer for this. Depending on the specifics of the motorcycle accident, the injuries, and the insurance companies involved, it can take anywhere from a few months to a few years before everything is settled.
Here are a few factors that can affect timing:
The specifics of the accident. For example, if the driver who caused the motorcycle accident was operating a personal vehicle, the case will be settled faster than one that involved a government vehicle.
The extent of your injuries. It's important to know the full extent of your injuries and the impact the motorcycle accident will have on the rest of your life to make sure the damages cover everything.
The actions of the insurance companies. Each insurer has its own approval process for handling claims. We continue to push them, but certain companies take longer than others.
Going to court. Most motorcycle accident cases settle out of court, but if your case goes to trial, there are rules about when certain events need to happen. For example, once you file a lawsuit, the other party has 30 days to answer your claim. In general, though, lawsuits take longer than negotiating a settlement out of court.
