Motorbike and Bicycle Injury Claims

Our roads are dangerous places, with 136,621 accidents recorded in 2016. If you are a motorcyclist or cyclist you will be aware of the risks of riding on our highways. If you have suffered a motorbike or bicycle injury within the last three years that was not your fault, you could be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE INVOLVED IN A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT

You should seek immediate medical attention for any injuries you may have incurred. If you do not require immediate medical attention, then it is a good idea to:

  • collect the full contact details including the postal addresses and telephone numbers of all parties involved in the accident
  • collect contact details of any witnesses to the accident
  • where possible, take pictures of the accident scene as well, including getting the registration plates of the vehicles involved

If you are able to then collecting the licence details for all the drivers involved in the accident, as well as the registration numbers of all vehicles involved in the accident is also useful.

Remember to report the accident to the police, which can help with assisting your claim for compensation should it come to involving testimonials.

HOW TO MAKE A CLAIM FOR AN INJURY

Injuries from motorbike or bicycle accidents can take months to heal and in some cases can be very severe and cause permanent disability. If a claim for compensation is being made this will usually include the pain and inconvenience caused by the injuries as well as possible time off work and loss of earnings, including any other expenses such as medical bills and the cost of extra care and transport if needed.

Our specialist London based team of personal injury solicitors offer sound legal assistance on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis to get you the compensation you deserve. When you get in touch with us, we will gain full details of the incident to assess your situation. We will advise you as to whether you would be able to make a claim and your next steps.

WHAT CAN BE CLAIMED FOR WITH A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT?

When it comes to claims for motorcycle accidents, these are usually split into two categories, general damages and special damages.

General damages refers to the accident and actual injury that you have received as the result of a motorcycle accident, including:

  • Pain caused by the accident, including short, medium and long-term physical pain
  • Mental trauma and stress caused by the accident
  • Ongoing health issues that may affect your quality of life on a potentially permanent basis

Special damages refers to all of the issues not related to the physical aspects of the personal injury received after a road traffic accident. These include:

  • Travel costs that may have been incurred whilst receiving medical care
  • Medical costs that can include ongoing treatment and the cost of medication
  • Ongoing care, such as physiotherapy or assistance at home
  • Loss of earnings from having to give up work or missing work as a direct result of your accident.

HOW MUCH COMPENSATION COULD I RECEIVE?

As every injury is personal, the amount of compensation you could potentially receive will be personal to you. However, to gain an initial estimation, you might find it helpful to try our Compensation Calculator.
