Motorbike Accident Compensation Claims
Motorbike accidents are unfortunately increasingly common on British roads. They can also be among the most serious road traffic accidents, with victims more susceptible to injury than other road users.
We know that the aftermath of motorbike accidents can be hard, whether you’re dealing with pain, fighting to recover from injury or struggling financially through a loss of earnings.
If you, or a loved one, have been involved in an accident on a motorbike that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to seek motorbike accident compensation for injuries you have suffered as a result. You could also be entitled to claim for losses and financial problems that have occurred because of your accident.
We specialise in dealing with those who have suffered serious injuries and work as a team to make sure our clients’ needs are addressed.

How do I make a motorcycle accident claim?
It’s important to act quickly after your accident if you want to make a claim, as there are time limits attached. In such cases, a claim must be brought within three years of the date you suffered an injury or within three years of you being aware that you have suffered an injury.
To make a motorbike accident claim, you should:
- Seek medical attention and get help with any injuries you have sustained
- Write down as much detail as you can remember about the accident, including what happened and who was involved. Keep any names, addresses and contact details of people involved and witnesses
- Get photographic evidence of the scene of the accident, including any registration plates
- Contact the police to file a report, which can help with your claim’s success
- Call Hodge Jones & Allen for a free consultation, where we will assess your situation
Once you’ve contacted our specialist team, we can evaluate your claim. We will then allocate you a solicitor, who will make sure they take care of you. We will then work to collect evidence and submit your claim to the defendant and/or their Insurer.
Should a defendant not agree to accept fault for the accident, we will then represent you at court and a judge will decide the outcome of the case.
How much compensation will I get?
Every road traffic accident claim is unique, so the amount of compensation you will be able to claim will be personal to you, based on your injuries and losses.
Personal injury compensation is calculated in two ways:
- General damages – Compensation for the injuries you have suffered and the impact these have had. This can include pain, mental trauma and any ongoing health issues.
- Special damages – Compensation for financial loss. This includes loss of earnings, any medical costs and the bills for ongoing care over time.
