How Long Does a Motorcycle Accident Claim Take to Settle in California?


Most motorcycle accident plaintiffs have never had to contend with an insurance claim before. This might make the situation stressful, particularly if you don’t know when it will be over. Knowing what to anticipate and the usual motorcycle accident claim timeframe might assist.

Because every accident is unique, only the experienced motorcycle accident lawyers at The May Firm can tell how long it will take to resolve your claim. Many factors go into motorcycle claims, including who is responsible for the accident, the extent of the damage, and the classes and levels of insurance coverage available. 

Factors that Affect the Motorcycle Accident Claim Process

Motorcycle passengers are injured or killed in over 80% of accidents due to the absence of exterior safety equipment. Liability and insurance play a role in deciding a settlement and the injuries caused.

1. Liability Establishment

Your compensation procedure may include proving culpability for the accident. This might assist you in figuring out whose insurance company will cover your losses and how much you’ll get. Your lawyer must show that the other party’s actions in the accident met four particular conditions to establish negligence. The particulars include:

  • Breach of duty
  • Duty of care
  • Damages
  • Causation

If there is any doubt about who is to blame in your case, you should contact the motorcycle accident lawyers at The May Firm. It might cost you thousands of dollars if you are improperly assigned partial or the whole culpability for an accident. 

2. Damages

Damages determine your case’s worth in addition to culpability. Damages refer to the extent to which someone has been hurt. With a few exceptions, injured motorcyclists have the right to sue the at-fault defendant for monetary damages. You must be able to substantiate the value of your injuries with credible documentation to get the highest settlement offer.

A Variety of Factors Determine Damage:

  • Loss of wages
  • Medical expenses incurred in the past
  • Future lost wages and earning capacity
  • Future medical costs
  • Punitive damages
  • Pain and suffering 

3. Negotiations of Settlement

Negotiations for a settlement are fluid and competitive processes. Large insurance companies defend the majority of motorcycle accident claims in California. In most cases, these firms recruit and educate insurance brokers to settle claims for the lowest practical sum. You need enthusiastic motorcycle accident lawyers at The May Firm on your side to receive a complete and fair compensation offer.

The settlement might take anywhere from 30 days to six weeks following the accident, depending on the circumstances. The initial settlement estimate from the insurance carrier may take 20-30 days to arrive. If the offer is too low, your lawyer will talk to you about it and negotiate. 

Unless the case is complicated or both parties cannot reach a reasonable arrangement, most motorcycle accident claims are handled in less than a few months. According to research, claimants who work with an experienced attorney get more significant payouts and have their cases resolved quicker.

Are you wondering how long it will take to settle your motorcycle accident claim and want to speed up the process? Contact motorcycle accident lawyers at The May Firm. The attorneys will begin with a free consultation and capture all the details of your claim.
