How soon after a motorcycle accident should I file a claim or lawsuit?

It will be important that you consult with a motorcycle accident attorney in Montgomery County, MD soon after your accident. They can review your case and help outline a course of action that is in your best interest. They will discuss with you the accident, review evidence and gain a clear understanding of the injuries you have been faced with in order to assign a value to your case. When filing an insurance claim, any attorney will tell you, the sooner the better. You have a higher likelihood of obtaining a settlement that is fair by filing quickly. Waiting too long to make an insurance claim can cause the insurance company to question the validity of your claim.  

How will I know that I have filed within the appropriate time frame?

Your motorcycle accident attorney from Montgomery County, MD can help you make sure that you take action within the statute of limitations. Each state has variations as to the length of time accident victims have to take action. In most states, victims have 2 years. The statute of limitations usually will not start until the victim discovers the injury.

Who can help me gather the evidence I need to prove my case if I am recovering from injuries?

You should start collecting evidence immediately following your accident. In some cases, you may be unable to do so, especially if you were significantly injured in the accident. Not only can your attorney help you gather the necessary evidence, they may even hire an investigator to piece together the events from that day. Although a motorcycle accident attorney in Montgomery County, MD can help you pull together the required evidence, it may also be helpful to enlist someone you trust to aid you in this process.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
