Making a Motorbike Accident Claim | Useful Information
Before making a motorcycle accident compensation claim, it’s important to understand as much as you can about the claims process, helping to establish whether the circumstances of your accident entitle you to compensation.
At Hudgell Solicitors, our claims specialists deal with many motorcycle accident cases, and can provide expert legal advice on a free, no obligation basis. Motorcycle accident claims can be made in the following circumstances:
- 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
We understand the significant impact a motorcycle accident can have on your life, and the lives of your loved ones. Of all road users, bikers are the most vulnerable to serious injury, with the lack of safety equipment meaning that the majority of force is absorbed by the bike and the rider. In the majority of motorbike accident cases we deal with, we see similar serious injuries, including:
- Broken and fractured bones
- Skin burns and deep cuts
- Muscle and tissue damage
- Head and brain injuries
- Spinal injuries
How motorcycle accident compensation could help you
When assessing your motorbike accident claim, we’ll seek to secure compensation that reflects your pain and suffering, and any long term consequences of injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident.
Our expert team will cut through the complexities of making a claim, establishing liability before negotiating a final settlement which fully compensates you and provides for your family. Our specialist Incident and Advice Specialist, Tony Carter, will be integral to this process — working closely with you and our solicitors to establish the circumstances of the accident, before making sure you get the advice and support you need to move on with your life.
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 in handling motorcycle claims, we know such accidents can often result in some form of 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 — and these costs will be taken into account.
Depending on 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, we 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 too — providing financial peace of mind for you and your loved ones.
