I've had a motorbike accident, what can I claim compensation for?

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!”

What should I do if I have been in a motorbike crash?

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.

Uninsured/Hit and Run Claims

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.

Fatal Motorbike Accidents and Inquests

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 james.mcnally@sleeblackwell.co.uk for an immediate response, or start your claim now!
