Being involved in a motorbike accident can be extremely distressing, especially if you sustain an injury through no fault of your own. If this sounds familiar, then you could be able to claim compensation – get in touch with our specialist personal injury solicitors to find out more about how to claim the compensation you deserve.
If you’re dealing with a motorbike personal injury claim, it’s important that you use a solicitor who knows what they are doing and has experience in the area. This is because certain road issues affect motorbike riders more than car drivers, such as potholes in the road that have a greater impact on the motorbike than cars, or uneven road surfaces that affect how the bike rides.
Motorbike Claims – Reasons for making a claim
There are many reasons why a motorbike accident might not have been your fault, but some of the common ones which give rise to a valid claim include the following:
• Obstructions in the road that cause the motorbike to crash, such as fallen branches.
• Road surfaces that are defective due to potholes or raised areas and lead to a motorbike crash.
• Crashes caused by cars acting in an inappropriate or illegal way.
• Spills on the roads that cause a motorbike to skid and crash, causing personal injury.
Motorbike Claims – Time limits
In order for your motorbike personal injury claim to be valid, you will usually need to start your case within 3 years of the accident. However, if you only became aware of your injury later on (such as a bone fracture you weren’t initially aware of), the 3 year limit will start from the date of diagnosis.
It’s important to start your personal injury claim as soon as possible to give the relevant parties time to investigate the case.
Motorbike Claims – your Compensation
If your claim is successful, your compensation will be based on any expenses you have incurred because of your accident, such as prescriptions or adapting a vehicle to accommodate a disability you sustained – plus damages for your pain and suffering.
The compensation also takes into account any loss of earnings you have suffered since the motorbike accident, including future loss of earnings due to an on-going personal injury.
