We Can Handle the Common Complications of Motorcycle Accident Cases
According to the National Highway Safety Association (NHTSA), motorcyclists are at a high risk of fatal accidents, and the consequences of crashes for riders can easily be severe. However, motorcyclists still often face bias when seeking compensation for an accident.
Often, they may face unfair claims from insurance adjusters. For instance, they may be deemed more responsible for the accident than they were. If you were in a motorcycle accident, you don’t have to face these challenges alone. We will handle any complications with your case, such as:
- Lowball settlement offers
- Delays in processing
- Outright denials
- Aggressive or unfair tactics
You do not have to accept unfairly low settlement offers—and if you accept the offer, you cannot recover more compensation later. For this reason, we recommend that accident victims run any settlement offers by our team to ensure they get every cent they deserve.

How Long You Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit After a Motorcycle Accident
IC § 34-11-2-4 allows you approximately two years from the date of the motorcycle accident to file a lawsuit. However, some circumstances can reduce or lengthen that time frame.
Our motorcycle accident lawyers can help you determine your deadline to file a personal injury lawsuit under Indiana’s statute of limitations laws. You must meet these deadlines to keep your legal options open.

Reasons to Consider Hiring Your Lawyer for Your Carmel, IN Motorcycle Accident
Many accident victims believe they should just represent themselves when they file a claim. While no law says that you must hire your lawyer, you may experience unforeseen problems and challenges if you go it alone.
Here are some reasons to consider a lawyer’s help:
We Understand the Legal Process
Most accident victims do not know the ins and outs of the claims process—dealing with insurers, determining a value for a claim, gathering evidence, and negotiating. This inexperience can lead them to leave thousands or more on the table.
We Can Tell You What a Fair Settlement Offer Looks Like
If you accept a settlement before seeking legal assistance, you may be accepting less than you deserve. An insurance company may not accurately value your claim initially, and a lawyer can help argue for many additional forms of compensation.
You Have Serious Injuries and Need to Cover Major Medical Costs
When you’re facing major or catastrophic injuries, it’s even more important to consider legal help. When you need to seek the best possible settlement to cover the months or even years of care you require, your lawyer can fight for every dollar you deserve.
