Motorcycle Accident Claims
We understand suffering any type of road accident is frightening. If you have sustained an injury from a motorcycle accident, the physical and emotional scarring can remain.

Calculating Your Compensation
We negotiate a figure to cover the financial, physical and emotional impact of your injury.
That means your compensation figure is completely unique to your claim.
While this means we’re not able to give you a solid figure, but your lawyer is charged with eliciting the largest amount possible under the law.
To give you an idea of how your lawyer will approach your claim for compensation, here is a short precis on how we arrive at a dollar figure:
- Any loss of earnings because of your injury, including any future loss of earnings if you are unable to work for an extended period
- Any expenses such as prescription, travel, replacement gear, home modifications, and mobility aids
- Any losses impacting leisure activities, for example, if you played a sport and are now unable to take part
Beyond that, your compensation can also cover the costs incurred by your loved ones because of your injury.
If your spouse or partner had to care for you during recovery, you could be financially compensated for their time, even if they freely gave their time for you.
It also means that any loss of earnings your loved one suffered, or unforeseen expenses such as mileage or hospital parking is accounted for.
‘No win no fee’ Arrangements
All of our no win no fee lawyers will advise you if your claim can be made on a ‘no win no fee’ basis, which means you aren’t out of pocket if your claim is unsuccessful.
If your claim is successful, all costs are taken out of the final settlement. There are no surprises, as you will agree on costs well in advance.
Meeting Your Immediate Needs
Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents can cause serious injuries which require immediate and prolonged treatment.
You may need money urgently, be it for routine expenses such as covering your bills or for transport, accommodation or equipment costs to help your mobility.
If you qualify or require any immediate payments during your claim, your lawyer will help you access these and talk you through the process.
Severe Motorcycle Accidents
It’s very easy for motorcycle accidents to be traumatic both physically and
While we know that all injuries can feel very serious, we know you could be second-guessing the severity of your injuries; was it really a serious injury or worth making a compensation claim for?
If you’re questioning whether you suffered a serious injury or not, this guide will make it clearer:
- You’ve had repeated or ongoing medical treatment
- You will need medical treatment of some type of your injuries for the rest of your life
- You’ve had to extended time off work and are not able to return to work or are unable to return to work in the same capacity
- You need care and support to complete basic, routine tasks
We know that no amount of money can make up for the impact your injury has caused. In a perfect world, the accident would never have occurred, to begin with.
However, compensation can provide you with the financial support you need to make a go of life going forward.
Can You Make a Motorcycle Accident Claim?
You can only make a motorcycle compensation claim if the accident was not your fault. It may have been caused by another road user, or by poorly maintained roads. For example, if the road had unsealed potholes.
