All Motorcycle Accident Lawsuits Come With Certain Deadlines

Your Legal Options for Seeking Compensation After a Motorcycle Crash
The idea of filing a lawsuit against another party may seem overwhelming right now. However, odds are, you won’t have to. Many of our cases settle through insurance negotiations. We can review the liable party’s policy, calculate your damages, and negotiate a settlement that reflects your case.
If the insurance company refuses to settle, we could take your case before a jury. This involves consulting with experts, managing certain deadlines, and preparing your case’s argument.

We Can Seek These Damages Following Your Marion County Collision
With the help of our motorcycle accident team serving Marion County, you could recover these losses:
- Past and future medical bills
- Lost income and other employment-related losses
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Mental anguish
- Property damage expenses
Your lawyer can seek funeral and burial expenses and other wrongful death damages if you lost a loved one and are filing a claim on their behalf.
The Value of Your Claim
Since each accident is different and each claimant’s damages are different, you won’t know the value of your claim until your lawyer evaluates your particular case. During this evaluation, your lawyer will look at your economic damages, such as your medical bills and lost income, as well as your non-economic damages, such as your pain and suffering.
Our lawyer serving Marion County knows how to calculate all of your damages so you do not get shortchanged by the insurance company. A motorcycle accident can cause injuries that may take days or even weeks to manifest. Our attorney will ensure you receive fair compensation, including your current and future medical expenses, such as physical therapy and possible long-term care.

Benefits of Partnering With Sevenish Law Firm, P.C.
Our lawyer can build your Marion County motorcycle accident case by:
Gathering Evidence to Prove the Cause of Your Collision
Using our investigative skills, we can find and use the following pieces of evidence to supplement your case:
- Healthcare bills
- Traffic camera footage
- Black box data
- The police report issued by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department
- Pictures of the accident scene
- Testimony from eyewitnesses and accident reconstruction specialists
All this information must prove one thing: because another party acted negligently, they caused your accident and owe you compensation.
Reviewing the Liable Party’s Insurance Policy
We’ll first start your case by determining your insurance coverage options. According to Indiana’s requirements, all motorists must carry the minimum amount of required insurance. If the other motorist doesn’t have insurance, you may have uninsured/underinsured protection coverage as part of your policy.
To build your case, our lawyer will need to prove that the other party was negligent. This requires evidence of negligence, such as incriminating traffic camera footage or bystander pictures. Your lawyer may also need to corroborate this evidence with testimonies from an eyewitness and a medical expert.
To obtain compensation for you, your lawyer will have to prove that the other party caused your accident-related injuries and other losses. Your lawyer will have to show:
- How the other party owed you a duty of care to act in a way that keeps you from harm
- How the other party violated that duty of care
- That the violation caused the incident (causation)
- That you suffered compensable losses (damages)
Negotiating a Settlement
After filing your case, the insurer would offer compensation that accounts for your losses in an ideal situation. However, this is seldom the case. Insurance companies are businesses that aim to make money – not pay out claims.
Yet, our team will negotiate for a settlement by:
- Presenting your case’s evidence
- Proving the cost of your damages
- Asserting the other party’s fault and liability for the collision
- Managing all communications with the claims adjuster
Filing a Lawsuit
If the insurer won’t settle, we can file a lawsuit against the negligent party. Remember, you generally have a two-year deadline to file your case. Failure to meet this deadline could jeopardize your right to compensation.
Do I Need to Hire a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer After My Crash?
You have every right to advocate for yourself and serve as your own lawyer. However, here at Sevenish Law Firm, P.C., we believe that pro se representation has many disadvantages. Without our help, you would be responsible for:
- Calculating your case’s value
- Understanding injury law
- Negotiating a settlement
- Filing a claim
- Filing all relevant documents and paperwork
- Communicating with the involved parties
- Litigating your case if necessary
These tasks can overwhelm someone suffering from serious injuries. You don’t have to battle the insurance company or other party’s lawyer. Our team can do that for you.

We’re determined to “win” your case and recover the compensation you need.
You Can Seek Compensation for These Accident-Related Injuries
Even with a helmet and other protective gear, motorcyclists do not have the same degree of protection afforded to other road users. Mild to moderate injuries, such as cuts, scrapes, and bruises, are common in motorcycle accidents.
Serious injuries include:
- Internal bleeding and organ damage
- Broken and fractured bones
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Permanent nerve damage
- Disfigurement and loss of a limb
- Spinal cord trauma
- Road rash
If you suffered any of these (or any other) injuries, your injury attorney could pursue the cost of your necessary healthcare expenses.
