Motorbike Accident claims
If you have a motorbike injury we know how difficult it can be to cope on your own. The injury itself will be causing you pain and suffering but it can also place limitations on your lifestyle. In addition you may also be suffering from a loss of income which can add further strain to your situation. It may be the case that your vehicle is out of action too and this may cost you further financial loss. We can arrange for your vehicle to be repaired and place you in a hire vehicle if necessary with no cost to you and no excess to pay.
Our specialist motorcycle accident solicitors can help you with everything, from claiming for your personal injury and your losses, such as loss of earnings and travel expenses, to arranging private medical treatment and rehabilitation to assist in your recovery and get your life back on track. Pursuing compensation for your motorbike accident is not something you have to do on your own, you need specialist advice. Trust us to help you.
Why it's not a good idea to claim through your Insurance company?
Most insurance companies "sell" cases on to one of the large factory law firms, usually the highest bidder and worst performer (they have to pay for your case as they can't get the work any other way). This is why you are bombarded with calls from motorbike injury lawyers as soon as you report your accident to your insurers. For a much better bespoke service contact, a specialist accident claims solicitor of your own choice, like PSR Solicitors.
In many cases, we go on to secure far higher compensation settlement values than claims for motorbike injuries settled by Insurers.
About motorbike injury claims
Being involved in a motorbike crash is often a very frightening experiences as unlike car accidents, motorbike riders are often exposed and this can lead to them suffering very serious injuries and their motorbike suffering extensive damage and in most cases, being written off.
Usually these accidents happen when other road users do not see a motorbike approach and there is a national campaign entitled “THINK BIKE”to try and raise the awareness of other road users. You can be a very safe motorbike rider however there is always the other driver to watch out for.
There are instances however where the bike itself is defective or the road surface is uneven/potholed and this can cause an accident to happen.
If your motorbike is damaged then it may require repairing or, depending on the severity of the damage and the age of the motorbike, it may be deemed a write off. In the first scenario we can arrange for an engineer to assess the damage and then arrange for the repairs to be undertaken whilst you are provided with a replacement hire vehicle. If your motorcycle is deemed to be a write off we will seek a payment (based on the market valuation) from the insurers of the person at fault. We can also arrange for you to be provided with a replacement hire vehicle until you are put in funds to purchase another vehicle. This can be of vital importance if you use your vehicle for work.
Our experienced solicitors can help you with a wide range of motorbike accident claims such as:
- Vehicles pulling out on you
- Vehicles changing lanes on you
- Rear end shunts
- Reversing accidents
- Fatal motorcycle accidents
Am I eligible to make a Claim for Compensation following a Motorcycle Accident?
If you have been injured in a motorbike accident in the past three years due to the fault or negligence of someone else then you are able to make a compensation claim as recompense for the pain, suffering and financial hardship caused.
The amount you receive will be determined by the severity of your injuries and the level of the care and rehabilitation needed. The court will consider your long-term prognosis, loss of earnings, how your injuries affect your ability to continue with every day activities and any changes that may be needed to your home so that you can continue to live independently.
Your compensation award will be essential to your recovery, future well-being and financial security so we will work tirelessly in pursuit of the maximum amount to cover:
- Medical care
- Specialist equipment or house modifications
- Loss of earnings
- Damage caused to your motorbike or other equipment
Can I make a Claim for Compensation on behalf of the Rider?
It is possible to make a compensation claim on behalf of someone else. Sometimes the injuries effecting motorcyclists are so serious and debilitating that loved ones need to step in and help or sometimes the injured person is understandably too distressed to talk about what has happened. Wherever possible we do try and speak to the person affected to obtain their permission to discuss their claim with another party but we appreciate that there are times when this is not possible and will continue to offer our help and support.
We are also able to provide advice to anyone who may have lost a loved one through a fatal motorcycle accident and are specially trained to help families and friends dealing with such heart-breaking and tragic circumstances.
How do I make a Compensation Claim?
Although claiming compensation for your injuries can feel complicated and time-consuming, we are on hand to manage the entire process and to make everything as straight-forward as possible for you. We can offer you a free, no-obligation consultation, where we can advise you on your chances of a successful claim and how much compensation you are likely to receive.
To proceed with your claim we will need as much information as possible including:
- Photographic evidence from the accident scene.
- Witness statements and contact details.
- The driver’s contact and insurance details.
- A record of your injuries and any medical treatment already received.
- Evidence of all the expenses you have had to cover so far as a result of your injuries.
We understand that discussing what has happened to you may be extremely difficult but we will go at your own pace and will never make you feel pressured or rushed. We can come and speak to you at home or in hospital, if your injuries make it difficult or impossible to travel to one of our offices. We can also, in some circumstances, take your initial instruction over the phone to make everything as simple, relaxed and stress-free as possible.
