Motorcycle accidents

We know how quickly a motorcycle accident can change your life. If you’ve had an accident on your bike, it’s likely we can help you

How we can help

We know that suffering any type of road accident is scary, but when you’ve suffered an injury from a motorcycle accident the physical and emotional consequences can be much more severe.

Motorcycle riders are much more exposed than car users while still able to travel at the same speed, which often means when accidents happen a rider can suffer extreme and life-changing injuries.

Firstly, we can help you because we understand the impact any injury can have on your life and the life of those who support and love you. We have over 20 years’ experience working with personal injury claims and during that time we’ve worked with motorcyclists like yourself and helped them to secure financial support and an apology.

We’re also able to provide free advice about starting and making a claim. So, if you’re not ready to start a claim or you’re unsure whether you have a claim, we can help you by listening to your experience and using our expertise to advice you on your next steps.

If you’re looking for advice, or to start your claim, please call us for free on 0800 376 0150. We’ll talk to you about your experience in a confidential environment and answer any questions about claiming you might have.

Your compensation

Your compensation is negotiated to cover the financial, physical and emotional impact of your injury.

That means your compensation figure is completely unique to your claim.

While this means we’re not able to advise how much compensation you might receive before you start your claim, you can be sure that your solicitor will negotiate for the maximum amount you need and deserve so that you’re not left out of pocket.

To give you an idea of the types of things your solicitor considers in their negotiations, please read the below:

  • Any loss of earnings because of your injury, including any future loss of earnings if you’re left unable to return to work or need to adjust your hours
  • Any expenses such as prescription, travel, replacement gear, adaptations to your home or transports
  • Any loss of spare time activities, for example if you played a sport and are now unable to take part

On top of that your compensation can also cover the costs incurred by your loved ones because of your injury.

So for example, if your partner had to care for you while you recovered then you could be financially compensated for their time, even when their care was given for free and out of love.

It also means that any loss of earnings your loved one suffered, or unforeseen expenses such as mileage or hospital parking can be compensated for and will be considered by your solicitor.

No win no fee

All of our solicitors work on a no win no fee basis, which means you don’t have further financial stress just because you’re making a claim.

No win no fee is an agreement between you and your solicitor that means if your claim isn’t successful you won’t have to pay any of the costs of making a claim. Quite simply, if you don’t win, you don’t pay a penny.

If your claim is successful, then you’ll have agreed your solicitor’s costs, so you’ll know how much you’ll be paying once you’ve received your compensation.

Immediate needs

Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents can cause serious injuries that mean you may need financial compensation quickly to help support your immediate needs.

This could be for routine expenses such as covering your bills or for transport, accommodation or equipment costs that mean you can get about more easily or that your loved ones are close by.

If you qualify or need any immediate payments during your claim, your solicitor will help you to get these and talk you through the process.

Serious motorcycle accidents

It’s very easy for motorcycle accidents to be serious and they are undoubtedly traumatic.

While we know in the moments following an accident and during your immediate recovery all injuries can feel very serious, we know that sometime after your accident you can be left questioning whether it really was a serious injury or worth making a compensation claim for.

If you’re questioning whether you suffered a serious injury or not, then the below can help. It’s likely you suffered a serious injury if:

  • You’ve had repeated, lengthy or ongoing medical treatment
  • You will need medical treatment for your injuries for the rest of your life
  • You’ve had to take long periods of time off work, are not able to return to work or are unable to return to work in the same capacity
  • You need care and support to complete daily tasks

We know that no amount of money can make up for the changes your injury has caused to your life, and like you, we’d rather you weren’t injured in the first place. However, compensation can provide you with the financial support you need as a result of your life-changing experience.

Can you make a motorcycle accident claim?

To be able to make a compensation claim for your motorcycle accident, the accident should have been caused by somebody else. This may be another road user or it could be the result of the conditions of the road, for example if it was broken or had potholes or there were faulty light systems.

Typically, you have three years from the date of your accident to make a claim, however in the event that you have suffered a head or brain injury, and are no longer considered to have the mental capacity to make decisions about claiming then you could have longer.
