NYS Motorcycle Statute of Limitations
For those people who are injured in New York, the deadline for filing a motorcycle accident injury claim is the same as general negligence, and that’s three years. That’s the time frame within which you have to bring an actual lawsuit.
However, filing your claim with the insurance company, having an attorney represent you and send out letters, authorizations, medical records and maybe the police report or photos, much sooner is the better way to go, but you do have three years to bring a lawsuit, if it’s a motorcycle accident and a private party.
