What if I am partially at fault for my motorcycle accident?
If a party is not fully liable for the accident, then there may be a chance for them to get some compensation financially. Accidents are rarely the sole fault of a single party. The fault is usually shared between several parties involved. Even if you are unsure whether you are eligible for compensation, it is worth speaking to a professional.

The time you have to file suit can be tricky and will depend on your case. Please reach out to our 24/7 legal team in order for us to determine if your case is timely.
In general and under Civil Practice Law & Rules of New York, Section 214, if you’ve been in a motorcycle accident and want to seek personal injury damages in court, you must file a lawsuit within three years of the date of the accident.
However, if you want to make a claim against a government entity, there’s a 3-month deadline starting from the day of the accident to file a Notice of Claim.
There are other exceptions that may apply and may effect how much time you have.
