The Importance of Having an Expert Motorcycle Claims Solicitor

We are experienced at dealing with a broad range of serious injuries, such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, amputations, fractures, dislocations, trauma to brachial plexus, burns and de-gloving injuries. Often the main injury will heal but symptoms of pain remain due to damaged nerves and soft tissues. 

We have a proven track record of successfully representing clients with catastrophic injuries, and we will fiercely advocate for your rights to secure the compensation necessary for your ongoing care, rehabilitation, and future well-being.

Motorcycle Accident Claim FAQs

What are the common causes of motorcycle accidents?

Common causes of motorcycle accidents include driver negligence, such as failing to see a motorcyclist approaching, not checking mirrors appropriately, distracted driving, speeding, road hazards, inclement weather, and vehicle defects.

Often, we see claims arise because the driver simply did not see the motorcyclist causing a collision or pulling into their oncoming path.

What should I do immediately after a motorcycle accident?

After a motorcycle accident, prioritise your safety and seek medical attention for any injuries. 

Ask for help, particularly where you may have sustained a spinal or head injury, and call an ambulance. 

Your bike is likely to have been significantly damaged and may assist the police in determining where you were at the point of impact. So, consider whether your bike should be moved and call the police. 

Whatever the circumstances report the accident to the police and gather evidence, including photos of the scene, witness statements, and the contact information of other parties involved. Your phone will be helpful or any head cam recording/images. 

Your bike will need to be recovered and stored to ensure any damage can be assessed. 

Make sure your insurers are notified so they can be involved and contact the other driver/rider to start investigations.

How do I know if I have a valid motorcycle injury claim?

You might have a valid motorcycle injury claim if your accident was caused by another party's negligence, such as a careless driver, defective road design, or faulty motorcycle parts. Consulting with a personal injury lawyer can help assess the validity of your claim.

What compensation can I expect from a motorcycle accident claim?

Compensation aims to cover not only immediate expenses but also future losses, including ongoing medical treatment, rehabilitation, loss of earnings, and compensation for pain and suffering.

Compensation may also include any future claims for earnings, long-term disabilities, or treatment. 

To build a case for compensation, medical evidence and supporting documents about your losses will be collated.

Do I need a lawyer to handle my motorcycle accident claim?

Having legal representation can significantly improve your chances of obtaining fair compensation. A skilled lawyer can navigate the complexities of the legal process, negotiate with insurance companies, and advocate for your rights in court if necessary.

A lawyer who understands the challenges faced by riders is essential. 

Paul and Anne at FT Chronic Pain Solicitors both have worked in teams where motorcycles incidents have been their main caseload. Anne in particular spent many months working solely on behalf of riders who have been injured as a result of a road traffic accident.

What to do if the insurance company denies liability for my motorcycle claim?

If the insurance company or third party denies liability for your motorcycle accident claim the denial will be reviewed alongside any evidence presented to substantiate this. 

We will work together to fight for an admission of liability, and this may involve providing additional evidence or pursuing your claim through the Courts.

How long does it take to resolve a motorcycle accident claim?

The time it takes to resolve a motorcycle accident claim can vary depending on factors such as the complexity of the case, the extent of injuries sustained, rehabilitation and negotiation. Some claims may be settled relatively quickly, while others may require litigation and take longer to resolve.

Can I still claim compensation if I was partially at fault for the accident?

Yes, you may still be entitled to claim compensation for a motorcycle accident even if you were partially at fault. However, your compensation may be reduced proportionally to your degree of fault.  This is called contributory negligence and means you contributed to the accident hence, the insurer or third party will not be responsible for paying you full compensation.

What if the at-fault party doesn't have insurance?

If the at-fault party in a motorcycle accident does not have insurance, you may still be able to pursue compensation through the Motor Insurers Bureau. They have a scheme through which we can pursue your claim to secure compensation.

Can I claim compensation for long-term injuries from a motorcycle accident?

Yes, you can claim compensation for long-term injuries resulting from a motorcycle accident. Compensation may cover ongoing medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, loss of earning capacity, and pain and suffering associated with the long-term effects of your injuries.  Your injuries will be determined by medical experts who will consider issues such as causation and any pre-existing factors with your health.
