Biking solicitors talking biker's language
Why Use Us?
You have suffered an injury after a motorbike accident and are looking for a solicitor to make a compensation claim on your behalf. There are thousands of injury lawyers out there, so why chose us? We could give you a bunch of reasons, but here are just a few:-
- Because we not only know the law, but know about motorcycles and motorbike accident claims. Mike Clarke, the solicitor heading up our specialist team, is a police-trained advanced rider with nearly 30 years of riding behind him. He specialised in motorbike claims for Yamaha before joining us in 2000. He rides for EVS, the national blood-bikes charity, delivering vital medical supplies in his spare time. He has also been a specialist injury solicitor for over 26 years. What he doesn’t know about motorcycle accidents and motorbike injury claims isn’t worth knowing.
- Because we tell it like it is. If you have a good claim, we will fight your corner. If you don’t, we won’t waste your time, or ours - we will tell it to you straight and explain what can and cannot be achieved. We avoid lawyer’s jargon and talk in a plain, no-nonsense style You might not always like what you hear, but you won’t be fobbed off, bamboozled or led up the garden path.
- Because you get a good deal from us. We are a reputable, qualified firm of solicitors, not one of those unregulated claims companies that litter the internet, buying and selling people’s accident claim like slabs of meat. Nor are we a factory of mindless drones working our way through a telephone list or one of those outfits who send dodgy text messages, urging people to claim compensation for an accident they never had! We offer genuine “no win, no fee” funding arrangements for genuine cases. We offer a top quality, professional service from top quality, professional lawyers you can trust. We are regulated by the Law Society and fully insured ... boring (again) … but still reassuring.
How to make a claim
Making a claim couldn’t be easier. If in doubt just give us a call or drop us an email.
The more information you can give us the better, but don’t worry if you can’t provide everything. Unlike other sites we don’t ask you to fill in complicated forms or questionnaires. We prefer to keep things simple. Obviously, you can help us to help you by doing a bit of preparation beforehand. You might like to have a look at Mike’s blog entries about what to do if you have a crash - preferably before you actually have one! It could make all the difference to you and your claim later.
Of course, if you are here because you have already been injured and don’t have a clue what to do next, then keep it simple - either give us a call for free on 0808 139 1598 or send us an email with your contact details and a brief outline of what your problem is and one of our team will get back to you.
Motorcycle accidents often fall into particular patterns, such as:-
the T-bone, where some fool pulls out into your path from a side road;
the side-swipe, when someone in a line of traffic you are nipping past gets bored and decides to swing out and go back home, putting you into the offside ditch;
the road-hog, often taking more than his fair share of the road while coming toward you on a tight bend;
and or course the SMIDSY, which can cover just about anything, the perpetrator giving his well-know cry of “Sorry mate- I didn’t see you!”
With all motorcycle accidents, the basic rules are simple. If you are in any fit state to do so, make sure you get:-
names and addresses of anyone who saw the accident;
the registration of any other vehicle involved, and the driver’s name and address if possible;
If you are being loaded into the ambulance, try to get someone else to get that information for you, right there and then.
Remember, it is a serious criminal offence for a driver to leave the scene of an accident without exchanging details, so don’t hesitate to call the police if you have to.
Motorcycle accidents happen everywhere. Really competent injury compensation solicitors are thin on the ground and motorcycle accident lawyers especially so. However, we cover the whole of England and Wales, so we can help you wherever you may be. We have a network of agents we can call on around the country if we need to gather evidence face-to-face, or on the ground. Furthermore, where the situation requires it, one of our team will travel to see you at home or in hospital. Our aim is to deal with all our cases with the minimum of fuss and bother to you, so we use email and telephone as much as possible. It’s quite rare for one of our cases to end up in a contested trial; the vast majority are settled by negotiation long before. However, we are not afraid to battle it out in court if required and we will arrange for you to be represented by an experienced barrister, wherever the court.
So no matter where you are in England and Wales, we are here to help.
