IDAHO MOTORCYCLE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS
Idaho Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit Statute of Limitations
Have you been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident in Idaho? Hansen Injury Law Firm can help you file a personal injury lawsuit to cover your financial losses and expenses. Our motorcycle accident lawyers are experts on accident lawsuits. We know how to make sure that your case meets all of Idaho’s legal rules, including the Idaho motorcycle accident statute of limitations.
The statute of limitations in a legal case refers to the amount of time you have to file your lawsuit. You must file your case within a certain time or you will not be able to receive compensation. This page explains how long you have to file an Idaho motorcycle accident case.
Motorcycle accidents are often very serious. Motorcyclists are more exposed than drivers, and many crashes occur at high speeds. If a negligent driver seriously injures you, you deserve compensation. We are experienced winning injury cases, and you will not pay us legal fees unless we win your case.
What is the Idaho Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit Statute of Limitations?
The statute of limitations for motorcycle accident lawsuits in Idaho is 2 years from the date of your accident. You must file your lawsuit within this window of time. As an example, if you are injured on September 10th, 2017, you must file an accident lawsuit by September 9th, 2019.
It is important to file your motorcycle accident lawsuit as soon as possible. If you miss the deadline established by the statute of limitations, you will not be able to file a claim. If this happens, you may be left facing huge expenses on your own.
Statute of limitations for child accident victims
If a child passenger is injured in a motorcycle accident, they can also file a personal injury lawsuit. However, the way the statute of limitations works changes. The statute of limitations is still 2 years, but it does not start to run immediately.
Instead, the statute of limitations begins when child accident victims turn 18. So, a child who is injured in an Idaho motorcycle accident has 2 years from the date they turn 18 to submit an injury lawsuit. If the child is under the age of 12 when they are injured, the statute of limitations begins to run after 6 years from the date of the accident.
