Motorcycle Accidents

Have you been involved in a Motorcycle Accident?

Motorcyclists are among some of the most vulnerable road users, along with pedestrians and cyclists.

According to the Department for Transport Statistics for 2015, 365 motorcyclists were reportedly killed on our roads in 2015. That’s one per day. 5,042 were seriously injured. Yet motorcyclists make up approximately just 1% of all road traffic users.

The most common serious injuries suffered by motorcyclists are head injuries and amputations. Helmets offer good protection but not complete protection.

Is there a time limit to my claim?

Normally you have three years in which to make a claim for a Motorcycle Accident. In Motorcycle Accident claims this is from either the date of your accident or from the point where it was discovered that the accident was responsible for your injuries.

However, there are some exceptions to this rule:

If you had the accident before you turned 18, you can make a claim up until your 21st birthday. Claims for children under 18 must be handled by an adult. These cases are subject to different time limits as growth can impact on your child’s injuries which means working out how much compensation you need can take time.

How the Claims Process Works

We offer a No Win No Fee agreement (CFA), to ease any worries you may have about paying legal fees when choosing to make a claim for a Motorcycle Accident.

This means that if your claim is successful, most of the fees are covered by your opponent*. If your case is unsuccessful, you pay nothing.**

* Under the terms of a No Win no Fee agreement we deduct up to 25% of your compensation to cover the success fee.

** Subject to entering into a No Win No Fee agreement and complying with your responsibilities under its terms.

How Much Can I Claim?

As every case is unique and individual, it is impossible to say how much you could receive. Depending factors are:

  • Severity of accident
  • Loss of earnings as a result of the incident
  • Psychological trauma from the incident
  • Ongoing treatments that you may need as a result of the accident
  • Carers or Doctor Fees you may have to pay as a result of your accident

At your initial consultation we can give you a better idea of the amount of compensation that could be owed to you.

Claiming on Behalf of Someone Else

If you need to claim on behalf of someone who doesn’t have mental capacity, the three year time limit doesn’t apply. This changes if the person who experienced the accident regains mental capacity, where they will then have three years from this date to make a claim.

In fatal cases, the three year time limit begins on the day your loved one passed away.

Time limits abroad vary widely, so if you suffered a Motorcycle Accident in a foreign country it’s important to get in touch with us quickly so that we can start looking at the evidence and building your case without delay. If you have any concerns about the time limits for claiming compensation, we’ll be able to talk through your options in a free initial consultation.
