Guidance on motorcycle accident claims
As any biker knows, life on two wheels can be exhilarating. But there’s no doubt that motorcyclists are some of the most vulnerable road users.
You don’t have the outer shell of a car to protect you, and your body is exposed while travelling at speed. Unfortunately this means that a road traffic accident or collision has the potential to leave you with serious injuries. Sadly motorcyclists are sometimes injured through no fault of their own. Too often drivers simply don’t notice motorcyclists – pulling out in front of them or opening a door into their path. Other times motorcycle accident claims arise from poorly maintained roads or even a defective component on the bike.
Following a motorcycle accident you may be left with physical injuries as well as psychological trauma that can take many months to heal. In rare and sad circumstances, your injuries may affect you for the rest of your life. You shouldn’t have to bear the financial cost of that when the accident wasn’t your fault. It’s true that no amount of compensation can take away what happened. But taking action to get the compensation you deserve can help to resolve the injustice and give you a little closure on the ordeal, so you can begin to move forward more positively. Even if you feel you were partially at fault for the accident, we can still help you to secure compensation. Give our friendly team a call and we can walk you through the process of starting a claim.
If you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident, you deserve clear guidance on whether you are entitled to compensation. Get started with a quick call to our trusted UK advice team or complete the form and let us call you back.
What can I claim for?
You can claim for the actual injuries you have suffered – this is called ‘general damages’. How much your claim will be worth varies significantly depending on the nature and extent of your injuries, but your specialist lawyer will talk you through this.
You can also claim for any accident-related financial losses known as ‘special damages’, for example:
A compensation claim can be made for injuries sustained and for pain and suffering.
Loss of earnings
In addition to your normal wages, you may have lost out on potential overtime, bonuses or commission because of your injuries. You can claim for all of these if they relate to the accident.
Medical expenses and rehabilitation costs
This includes things like prescription costs, the cost of buying equipment to help in your rehabilitation, and the cost of private medical treatment if you have to ‘go private’.
That could be, for instance, taxis or public transport to hospital appointments.
Damaged clothing and personal items
Sometimes, personal belongings and clothing can be damaged in an accident. You may be able to claim for these too.
Interim payments may be available in certain circumstances. We understand that an accident can cause financial hardship to the injured person and their family. Our solicitors will always try to secure interim payments where needed.
