Bicycle Accident Statute of Limitations
If you were injured riding a bike, there is a short time span you can file a claim for compensation. Learn more about bicycle accident statute of limitations in this video by Ventura bicycle accident attorney Craig Murphy.
Typically, you will have two years from the date of that bike accident to file your claim. You have two years in which to settle it or file the lawsuit. If it goes beyond the two years, typically, you will have lost any chance that you have to resolve your California bike claim. Now, the circumstances may be different that can either extend or shrink that two-year period of time, and that’s why it’s critical that you immediately talk to an attorney. For example, if you believe that your bike crash was caused because of a defect in the roadway, you’re probably talking about suing a governmental entity, and your time frame could be as short as six months. If you have a child, who was under 18 who was injured in a bike accident, the time frame may be longer.
