Do Not Wait to Seek Compensation
When a negligent driver causes a collision between his vehicle and your motorcycle, the time you have to hold him financially responsible for his actions is limited. For collisions occurring in Long Beach, you might be limited by New York Civil Practice Law & Rules (CVP) §214. This statute generally requires you to file your personal injury lawsuit within three years of the date of the collision. There could be exceptions to this general deadline that require you to act much sooner, such as a lawsuit against a government agency.
Knowing and understanding the statute of limitations is an important part of your lawsuit. If you inadvertently overlook or otherwise fail to comply with the state’s filing deadline, you may put your lawsuit at risk of immediate dismissal. That may mean you no longer have the ability to seek compensation from the at-fault driver and the full financial burden of the collision becomes yours.
You may avoid this negative consequence by involving our firm in your motorcycle collision lawsuit as soon as possible. With enough notice of your intent to seek compensation, we might be able to ensure your lawsuit is filed on time.

Building Your Case File
Our team and the representatives of the at-fault driver may rely on documents and evidence to understand the circumstances that led up to your motorcycle collision. We may listen to your recollections of the collision, then request one or more of these forms of evidence:
- Crash report
- Witness statements
- Medical records
- Medical bills
- Injury photos
We may be able to use these items to prove the at-fault driver’s negligence, to establish the cause of the collision, and to prove its resulting costs. Obtain copies of these items as soon as they become available. Our firm might be able to help you obtain some of these documents if your injuries prevent you from doing so on your own.
Proving the Extent of Your Injuries
The difference in size between your motorcycle and a passenger vehicle can lead to severe injuries in a collision. Motorcycle collision injuries may include:
- Concussion or traumatic brain injuries
- Fractures or broken bones
- Back and spinal cord injuries
Your health care team may help you develop a treatment plan geared toward optimal physical recovery. That may mean many diagnostic exams, referrals, physical and occupational therapies, and rehabilitation. Our legal team can help you compile the medical records and bills that may come from the physicians and treatment facilities you utilize during your recovery.
We might also be able to help you determine the cost of any health care you may require in the future. This is an important step in ensuring your lawsuit is accurately calculated.

Avoiding a Trial by Negotiating for a Settlement
You might be able to resolve your case through the settlement negotiation process. The strength of your case and the value of your damages may help drive the negotiation process after a motorcycle collision. Many personal injury cases are resolved without progressing to trial.
While you, not our team, have the final say in accepting or rejecting a settlement offer, we may help you carefully weigh the feasibility of each offer you receive. Once you accept an offer, it is final and binding. Because of this, our team will work to start the settlement process with an accurate valuation of your injuries and related expenses. If you do not receive an adequate settlement offer, we can take your case to trial.
