Do I qualify for a motorcycle accident claim?
If your accident took place within the last three years, and it was it caused by another motorist, there’s a good chance you’ll have a claim. The best way to find out if you have a claim is to get in touch with our expert team so we can go over your case.
It is also possible to make a claim on behalf of a loved one or relative who was injured in a motorbike accident or involved in a fatal motorcycle accident that was caused by another driver or third-party negligence.
Can I make a claim if a poorly maintained road caused my motorcycle accident?
There can be many causes of road traffic accidents involving motorbikes, the majority of which stem from negligence on behalf of other road users.
But if your motorcycle accident was caused by a pot hole on a poorly maintained road, you may be able to claim compensation – even if there was no other motorist involved.
The UK road network is riddled with potholes, and it’s possible to make a claim against local councils in the event of one causing a crash.
If you have evidence to show that a poorly maintained road was responsible for your motorbike crash, we may be able to help you claim compensation.
How much motorcycle accident compensation can I expect?
How much you might receive after a successful motorcycle accident claim very much depends on the particulars of your case.
The amount of compensation calculated will take many factors into account beyond a physical injury. There will likely be damage to your motorcycle, helmet, or other gear, and there could be ongoing medical and rehabilitation costs, as well as loss of earnings and other expenses. There’s also the emotional impact on you and your family, and how that will affect your future quality of life.
Your expert motorcycle accident lawyer will take all these elements into account to calculate a fair and realistic compensation claim amount, and will fight on your behalf to make sure you receive what you’re entitled to.
Personal injury compensation claims for minor injuries resulting from road traffic accidents changed from May 31, 2021 when reforms came into force which significantly affect the value and conduct of claims under £5,000. However, these new reforms do NOT apply to cyclists, motorcyclists or pedestrians.

How do I make a claim after a fatal motorcycle accident?
The vulnerability of bikers means they’re much more likely to suffer fatal injuries during an accident than other road users.
At Hudgell Solicitors, we understand the pain and suffering of losing a loved one in a motorcycle accident, and recognise that coming forward to make a claim can be an incredibly difficult process.

What if I didn’t get the details of the driver who caused my injuries or they are not insured?
If you’ve been hit by an uninsured driver, or someone who failed to stop following an accident, you may still be able to make a personal injury claim for the injuries you sustained against the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB). This is an organisation which deals with claims by victims of accidents where either the offending driver cannot be traced, or, if identified, turns out to be uninsured.
Our team has handled many claims through the MIB, including securing a £22,500 damages settlement for a client left with injuries after an uninsured driver clipped the back of his car, causing it to mount the kerb and crash head on into a lamppost.
Our team also secured compensation for a pedestrian injured when struck by a van which drove off after dragging him to the ground as he was waiting to cross the road.
