A motorcycle accident can result in injuries that may have a long-lasting impact on the victims life and their loved ones. As experts in handling compensation claims for for personal injuries, we understand the complexities often attached to road traffic accidents whilst offering the immediate support often needed.
Motorcycle accident claims can be made for:
- Motorbike riders being knocked off when not seen by other drivers
- Other road users’ lack of awareness of motorbikes at junctions
- Motorists failing to see a motorbike because of their car windscreen pillars
- Potholes or uneven surfaces, due to lack of road maintenance
- Loose chippings on the road, diesel spillages, or debris left on roads by others causing a vehicle to skid
Without air bags and seat belts, injuries suffered as the result of a vehicle hitting a motorbike can be severe and life-changing, as the vast majority of the force is absorbed by the bike and rider. Injuries we commonly see suffered include;
- Broken and fractured bones
- Skin burns and deep cuts
- Muscle and tissue damage
- Head and brain injuries
- Spinal injuries

How compensation can help you
We’ll seek to secure you compensation for your pain and suffering, and any long term consequences of injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident.
Our teams will cut through the complexities of making a claim, establishing liability and then negotiating a final settlement which fully compensates you and provides for your family.
We can even pursue a claim on your behalf if you are involved in an accident with an untraced or uninsured driver.
From our experience of handling motorcycle claims, we know such accidents can also often result in some form psychological trauma, and a successful compensation will help cover the cost of both physical and psychological treatment.
You may also require further care, or perhaps require alterations to your house. These costs – whether past or planned in the future – will be taken into account.
Depending upon the circumstances, we may also be able to arrange for some of your compensation to be paid early, if you require treatment or new equipment to aid your recovery.
Finally, will seek to recover all lost earnings for your family as a result of your injuries, making finances one less thing to worry about. If you have to stop working all together, we can look to claim for your future losses also.
What will my claim cost?
As we handle all cases on a ‘no win no fee basis’, making a claim for compensation will not cost you a penny up front, and if successful, you will only be expected to pay an agreed percentage of the compensation you are awarded.
Your claim will seek to cover your injury, any repairs needed to your motorcycle and attire, the cost of alternative transport needed after your accident, any loss of earnings, and the costs of medical treatment and rehabilitation.
