Claiming for motorbike accident compensation can be a long road indeed. We have helped countless people claim the compensation they deserve after being the victim in a road traffic accident and without the added protection a car usually offers – bikers can end up badly hurt!
If you’re looking for help and advice about motorbike accident claims then we are the lawyers for you.
How do I win a motorbike accident compensation claim?
The simple answer is: by instructing us!
But to give you an insight in to what happens, we normally need to submit the claim directly to the insurers of the person responsible for the accident. As long as you have, at the very least, their registration number then that can be enough to get a case started.
If the circumstances are obvious then it’s easy for us to tell you if you have a successful motorbike accident compensation claim to make. If you have been hit from behind, hit from a side road, hit by a car pulling out or hit when the other car has changed lanes on a roundabout, then you probably have a winning compensation claim.
If you have been injured as a result of your motorbike accident then we can claim compensation that will reflect the severity and extent of your injuries. We judge this by asking an independent expert to see you for an appointment and provide us with a report giving their opinion about the accident and your injuries.
If you are badly hurt or if you have multiple injuries then we may need more than one report from different types of experts, but their evidence is vital to providing how much you can claim for.
What can I claim for when making a motorbike accident compensation case?
Your claim will normally be in two parts – the first, called General Damages, is for the pain, suffering, and loss of amenity caused. This is generally valued using the medical evidence mentioned above and by using our specialist experience as motorbike accident compensation lawyers.
The other part, usually called Special Damages, is for your losses and expenses. This can include hire, repair, and replacement where necessary of your beloved motorbike, as well as replacement gear, money for damaged property, lost earnings, medical expenses, and travel and escort duties. If you can’t ride your bike and you need to rely on taxis and buses or help from friends and family then this can often be included as part of a claim too.
Ultimately when you make a motorbike accident compensation claim you should be put back in the position you would have been in had the accident never have occurred. We can only do this to the best of our ability, of course. We cannot change the fact that the accident has happened, nor can we bring back your beloved bike if it is written off. But we can make sure that you have not lost out financially and we can make sure you are given a payout for the injuries and inconvenience as well.
