Statute of Limitations for Motorcycle Accidents in Oregon

In Oregon, the Statute of Limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit after a motorcycle accident is two years from the date of the accident.

This means that individuals who have been involved in a motorcycle accident have two years to file a lawsuit seeking compensation for their injuries, damages, and losses. If the two-year deadline is missed, the individual may lose the right to seek legal recourse and could be barred from recovering any compensation for their injuries.

There are some exceptions to this two-year limit, such as when the injured party is a minor or if the injury was not immediately evident. In these cases, the Statute of Limitations may be extended.

Contact our dedicated personal injury lawyers in Oregon to determine if any exceptions to the time limits apply to your specific situation.
