The average compensation for a motorbike accident is dependent on a variety of factors, as this article explains.

Everyone is different and each of us is affected in a different way when we suffer a motorbike accident. As explained below, your individual response to an accident, both physically and psychologically, has a direct impact on the amount of compensation you can claim. Financial losses also differ. If a motorbike accident means you are unable to go to work then you can recover your lost earnings. You can also claim any out of pocket expenses you incur, such as travel expenses and medical fees.
If you go to our case studies page, you will find details of a number of motorbike accident claims we have successfully dealt with, and the amount of compensation that the victims received in each of those cases. As you will see, the range of compensation varies enormously from case to case, which obviously makes it difficult to say with certainty what the average compensation for a motorbike accident is.
Because no two motorbike accident claims are ever the same, even where the victim’s injuries are similar, we therefore ensure that every case we deal with is assessed individually on a case-by-case basis.
Furthermore, it’s important to remember that you only get one chance to make a claim. You cannot go back for a second bite of the cherry if you settle your case and then subsequently feel that the level of compensation was not enough. It is therefore crucial to instruct specialist solicitors who will get you the full amount of compensation that you deserve.
One important factor when determining the level of compensation you are entitled to receive is the extent of the physical and psychological injuries you suffered in the accident. Compensation is usually awarded on the basis of medical reports prepared by a doctor or specialist consultant. These medical experts assess the effect that the injury has had on you. They will summarise your symptoms, confirm how long it has taken you to recover and give an opinion on whether you are likely to continue to have problems in the future. We have access to a network of some of the best and most experienced medical experts in the country who will be able to meet with ypou locally and provide us with the evidence we need to recover the level of compensation you deserve.
