Making a Motorcycle Accident Claim

Everyone will have an opinion as to why motorcyclists crash.  Many will say that the majority of crashes are self inflicted because of the way they are ridden, whether it be because they are ridden too fast for the conditions, or because riders are over aggressive and ride in a reckless or dangerous manner, and whilst in some cases this is true, the reality is that in the majority of incidents bike crashes are often as a result of the behaviour or other road users.

FAQs

What happens when I make a motorcycle accident claim?

Claiming compensation for a motorbike accident is a four step process, and we’ll keep you updated as to how your claim is progressing at regular intervals. Your claim will be handled by our personal injury specialists, who will be able to assist with any queries or concerns you may have.

Step 1: Assessing your claim and gathering information

We’ll begin your claim by assessing the circumstances of the accident and work closely with you in this regard with an aim to place full liability on the party responsible. In the event of a liability dispute we will look to contact any witnesses there may be with a view to obtaining detailed statements to support your claim, and if the Police were involved, we may also look to obtain a copy of the Police Report and consider whether any criminal proceedings were brought against the driver.

Step 2: Assessing your rehabilitation and ongoing support needs

Depending on the severity of your motorbike accident, you may require ongoing treatment and care to get your life back on track following a serious incident. We will liaise with the responsible party's insurers with a view to ensuring that appropriate rehabilitation is put in place at an early stage. You'll also undergo a medical assessment with an independent expert, who will determine the severity of your injuries and outline the ongoing treatment and rehabilitation you require moving forwards.

Our rehabilitative care doesn’t just take the form of monetary compensation, either. Working with Tony Carter, we’ve established relationships with many bike accident charities that specialise in offering help and support to those recovering from a serious motorbike accident, so you’ve somewhere to turn for support and guidance even after your claim has concluded.

Step 3: Deciding on a Compensation Sum

Once we’ve established the extent of your injuries and ongoing care requirements, we can then consider what level of compensation is appropriate to compensate you for your injuries. We will also look to calculate a sum that is appropriate for your medical needs, rehabilitation and loss of earnings, so you and your family can enjoy financial security now and in the future. This will then be put to the opposing party, who can either agree to the settlement or put forward a counter offer of their own. In the event that it is not possible to negotiate a fair settlement the case may need to go to Court where a Judge will decide on the level of compensation which should be awarded. Our team will of course be with you every step of the way.

Step 4: Concluding the Case

The final step in the process is concluding your claim, at which time you’ll be awarded compensation if your case has been successful. Remember, all our motorbike accident claims are handled on a no win no fee basis, so if you don’t win you won’t be expected to pay a penny.

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 bike 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 bike accident, we may be able tohelp you claim compensation.

How do I make a claim after a fatal motorbike accident?

While the number of motorbike-related deaths is decreasing, the sad fact is that the vulnerability of bikers means that 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. Our team will do all they can to secure the compensation you and your family need to begin to move on following such a tragedy, treating your case with the utmost empathy and respect throughout the claims process.

Whenever you’re ready to make a claim on behalf of your loved one, we’ll be here for you.

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.

Why should I trust Hudgell Solicitors with my motorcycle accident compensation claim?

Choose to make a claim for motorcycle accident compensation with us, and you’ll benefit from expert legal representation and a comprehensive rehabilitation and support offering. Our specialist team will assess your claim and offer a free, no obligation consultation, so you can start the process with complete confidence and peace of mind.
