If you’ve had a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation.
In our experience, that compensation tends to range from £20,000 for minor injuries up to over £1,000,000 for life changing-injuries.
(When you contact us, we can discuss expectations based on the particulars of your case.)
We’re specialists in serious injury claims, and have helped many clients who’ve had motorcycle accidents. So, whatever questions you have, we should be able to answer them.
To talk with one of our solicitors, just fill in the form at the top of the page and we’ll be in touch promptly.
There’ll be no charge and, because we’re solicitors – and not a call centre – you’ll receive proper legal advice.
When there’s more than one party at fault – e.g. a driver and the motorcyclist – liability is apportioned based on the evidence of the case.For example, if a case settles for £100,000 and the driver is found 70% liable – and the motorcyclist 30% liable – the motorcyclist would be awarded £70,000.
Unsurprisingly, the more serious the injury, the higher the settlement.But even if you have a minor injury, you should get in touch with us. There’s no charge and we can advise you on whether a claim is likely to be successful – and what sort of compensation you’d be entitled to.
You should contact a specialist Motorcycle Accident solicitor.The solicitor will help you receive fair compensation. And that includes damage to your bike, damaged clothing, any policy excess recovery, loss of earnings as well as personal injury.
The sooner you do that, the better – because the accident will still be fresh in your mind.
It’s possible, but unlikely. 99% of personal injury cases settle without the need for the Claimant to go into a Courtroom.
You can claim against the highway authority if your accident was caused by a defective road surface.
Not necessarily, but a police report can be helpful in determining liability.
Medical evidence will be needed to establish the extent of the injury claim. This will typically be from an orthopaedic surgeon or a clinical psychologist. And we’ll obtain any historical x-rays and medical records from the hospital as part of your claim.
If the evidence in the case – e.g. the contents of the police report, witness accounts etc. – support your version of events, but liability is disputed by the third party driver then court proceedings will be issued. And then the court will decide who was at fault for the accident.
You have 3 years from the date of the accident to start court proceedings. If you wait more than three years, you’ll only be able to make a claim in exceptional circumstances.
No win, no fee’ means, if you don’t get the result you want, you won’t have to pay any fees.
The important thing to remember is that the compensation that is agreed upon will help to cover the costs of the financial impact and injuries caused by your accident.
These things will be different for everyone, so it’s important to discuss with a solicitor what you might be able to claim.
