Should I File a Claim or Pursue a Lawsuit against the Liable Party?
First and foremost‚ you should never accept any settlement deal proposed to you by the insurance company without first consulting with a reliable attorney. Insurance companies generally prioritize profits above all else‚ and will try to pay out as little money to you as possible. However‚ this does not necessarily mean settlement is never an option. With professional legal assistance‚ you may reach a full and fair settlement deal with the insurance company‚ making a lawsuit unnecessary.
If negotiations fail and a settlement is not reached‚ you may have no other choice but to file a lawsuit. Retain the services of an attorney with a proven track record to ensure that you have the best possible chance at an optimal case outcome. Depending on the strength of your claim‚ the court may award you compensation for damages‚ including medical expenses‚ property damages‚ lost wages and loss of earning capacity‚ pain and suffering‚ loss of companionship‚ and similar damages.
How Long Do I Have to File a Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit in California?
Depending on the circumstances surrounding your collision‚ you may have as much as two years or as little as six months to file your lawsuit. It is highly advised that you consult with a Carlsbad auto accident attorney and get started on your suit as soon as possible. If you wait until the statute of limitations expires‚ you will be completely barred from filing a claim or a lawsuit. Additionally‚ the longer you wait‚ the weaker your case may become‚ since vital evidence may fade with time and potential witnesses can withdraw their testimonies.
