How Long Do I Have to File a Motorcycle Accident Claim?
After a motorcycle accident, it’s wise to file a claim with the at-fault person’s insurance company as soon as possible. That way, there is still time to take your case to court if settlement talks fall through.
In New Jersey, you have two years from the date of the motorcycle accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. In New York, the statute of limitations is three years from the date of the crash.
But if the other driver was operating a publicly owned vehicle, you may have only 90 days to notify their employer of your intention to sue.
