We are a reputable, qualified firm of solicitors, not one of those unregulated claims companies that litter the internet, buying and selling people’s motorbike accident claim like slabs of meat or sending dodgy text messages, urging people to claim compensation for an accident they never had!

Our motorbike injury lawyers are recommended by the prestigious and independent directory, The Legal 500.
If you have been involved in a motorbike accident, you may be able to claim compensation. Accidents can happen for numerous reasons, and 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 of course the SMIDSY, which can cover just about anything, the perpetrator giving his well-known cry of “Sorry mate- I didn’t see you!”
If you are a motorcyclist and have been the victim of an accident, or crash, the basic rules of what you should do 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.
Making a claim couldn’t be easier. If in doubt just give us a call on 0808 139 1598 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 websites 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.
If you 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.
Funding a legal case can be a worry, which is why we have developed a range of funding options including our popular No Win - No Fee scheme.

Uninsured drivers and ‘hit & run’ accidents are complications you could do without, but with growing numbers of drivers out there not bothering to insure their cages, you could well become one of the million or so people each year who are victims of the uninsured driver. Equally, you could be unfortunate enough to be clobbered by some git who doesn’t even bother to stop and say “Sorry mate, I didn’t see you.” before disappearing over the horizon.
Either way, don’t panic. Even if the car driver responsible is uninsured or drove off before you could get his details, you can still make a claim for injury compensation. All motor insurers in the UK have to pay into a slush fund operated by the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB). The MIB deals with claims involving uninsured or unidentified drivers. The procedure is a little more involved than your usual motorcycle accident claim, but not drastically so and we have years of experience of successfully recovering MIB compensation.
The “no win, no fee” scheme we offer for MIB claims is a little different to our usual one, so give us a call for free on 0808 139 1598 and we’ll explain how it works.
It is a sad fact that motorcyclists are more likely to die in a crash than any other road user. The consequences of a parent, spouse or child being killed on a motorbike can be devastating. Initially, the last thing the family can think about is the possibility of pursuing a compensation claim following such a loss; but if someone else’s carelessness has deprived a family of the main breadwinner, the care of a loving parent, the support of a loving wife or husband, or financial contribution to the family finances- then in all those cases, thought must be given to a claim. Those left behind will need all the help they can get.
We are highly experienced in all aspects of fatal motorcycle accident claims, which can be complex and involve large amounts, since all too often, long-term future losses will need to be factored in.
We can also help with the stresses of the inquest. Having a skilled and sympathetic motorcycle solicitor at court on your behalf will not only make things that little bit easier to cope with, but will ensure that all your questions about what happened and why are properly answered. The inquest is also vital for gathering information about the circumstances of the accident, so that you can be fully advised about any potential claim.
If you have been unfortunate enough to lose someone close to you in a motorcycle accident and want to know what to do or would like a lawyer to attend an inquest on a No Win, No Fee basis then call us on freephone 0808 139 1598, email email@example.com for an immediate response, or start your claim now!
The incident occurred on a farm. Quad bike accidents on farms are unfortunately all too common and such incidents regularly arise.
Our client was the daughter of a Devon farmer, engaged to the son of a neighbouring farmer. She was using a quad bike belonging to her fiance’s farm when the brakes failed on a hill. She lost control of the quad bike and crashed, suffering a serious head injury as a result.
Our specialist bike accident team were appointed to deal with a compensation claim on her behalf. We agreed to act under a Conditional Fee Agreement which is a type of No Win - No Fee arrangement.
As with most claims based upon an allegation of mechanical defect, it was necessary for us to establish the precise cause of the accident. We therefore arranged to obtain a formal report from an expert in the field. Our expert carried out an investigation and presented us with a report confirming that the brakes on the quad bike were in an appalling state and had been neglected for a very long time.
This meant that the farm which owned the quad bike and allowed our client to ride it would carry legal responsibility for the accident and the injuries she suffered. In law there is a legal obligation on people to take care and avoid situations where there is a risk of injury to third parties. In this case the farm should have made sure that the quad bike was serviced and in particular that the brakes were fully operational so it could be safely ridden. Alternatively the farm should not have allowed our client or anyone else to ride the quad bike.
With the assistance of this expert evidence we were able to obtain an open admission of liability from the farm’s insurers. The insurers will have recognised the strength of the expert evidence disclosed to them and recognised that by continuing to defend the claim they would simply cause legal costs to escalate and thereby increase their financial liability.
Although the claimant's head injury was a very serious one, we are delighted to report that she made a remarkable recovery. Within 2 years of the accident occurring she had made an almost full recuperation and was effectively free of any on-going symptoms. Such a high degree of recovery is unusual in a serious head injury case, where problems more often continue for life.
We were able to go on to negotiate an out of court settlement with the defendants in which our client recovered compensation in the order of £75,000.

Our client was riding his KTM motorbike in Vauxhall, London, when he was confronted by car coming towards him on the wrong side of the central dividing barrier. He braked, lost control of his bike and hit a post in the central reservation, which unfortunately took off his right leg; a devastating and life changing injury.
We were instructed by the motorcyclist to bring a compensation claim against the car driver on a No Win, No Fee basis.
Our investigations established that the driver of the car had over-shot a nightclub entrance and performed a U-turn, rather than going on to the next roundabout and returning on the correct side of the road.
The car driver’s insurers denied blame for the accident, arguing that there was no contact between the vehicles and that our client should have been able to stop in time.
The evidence suggested that our client had been doing no more than 30 mph at the time of the accident.
Expert evidence was obtained by both side, but as is common in this type of claim it was contradictory.
After extensive negotiations with the insurers, we settled the claim out of court for a sum well in excess of a quarter of a million pounds.
