Our personal injury team is expert at pursuing motorcycle accident claims. We are one of the UK's leading personal injury law firms and specialise in handling complex cases involving long-term rehabilitation programmes.

Many motorcyclists will have legal expenses cover with their motor insurance policy. In the event of a motorcycle accident, and faced with devastating injuries it is easy to see why they assume that the solicitors appointed by their insurers will provide competent legal advice. In fact, these "panel" solicitors are often not specialist in serious motorcycle injury claims and provide inadequate advice, leading to missed opportunities to obtain early admissions of liability and interim payments, and in some cases to under-settle claims. We have extensive experience in taking over cases from such solicitors and ensuring that victims of motorcycle accidents receive the best possible legal advice. If you have already instructed solicitors but are not happy with the advice you are receiving you can contact us to discuss your case and whether we can take over conduct.

Frequently asked motorcycle accident claims questions?

Yes. In order to bring a claim following a motorcycle accident you need to establish that the other party to the accident failed to observe the standard of care of a reasonable driver and was negligent in causing the accident.

Compensation can be claimed for your injuries and the consequential losses that you have suffered as a result of the motorcycle accident. This includes the treatment and rehabilitation that you may require to recover from your injuries. Our specialist lawyers will speak to you about this and prepare a schedule of loss setting out all of your losses to include your future losses as well.

It is impossible to give a precise timeframe. A lot depends on the nature of your injuries and how long it takes for you to make a recovery. It is important that the medical position is as clear as it can be as to the nature of your injuries and the prognosis at the time that we look to try and settle your claim. We will always seek an early interim payment from the other side to ensure that you have the necessary money to pay for treatment or other losses. If the other side does not voluntarily consent to providing an interim payment then we will start court proceedings and request an urgent hearing for the court to consider the issue.

We need to ensure that the compensation you recover compensates you for the injuries that you have sustained and your likely future losses. We need to secure the right settlement for you.

There are no fixed amounts. The amount of compensation that you receive will depend on the nature of your injuries and the impact those injuries will have on the rest of your life. 

All road users are required to take reasonable care whilst using the road and owe a duty of care to other road users to drive in a safe and reasonable manner. The duty of care is owed to all road users including, drivers, passengers and pedestrians.

The duty of care is breached if you can show that the level of care and skill of the driver fell below the standard expected of a reasonable driver.
