Motorbike Traffic Accident Claims

Motorcyclists can use the same fast roads as cars or larger vehicles and can travel at similar speeds. However, unlike cars or larger vehicles, motorcyclists do not have the same physical protection. This lack of protection leaves motorcyclists vulnerable to the full force of impact in a road traffic accident (RTA), putting them at greater risk of serious, life-changing, or even fatal injuries. Statistics show that the highest proportion of fatal casualties occur in 2-vehicle collisions involving an HGV or car*. Even on quieter, rural roads, motorbike riders tend to be one of the most vulnerable road users, and typically, a higher proportion of motorcycle fatalities occur on rural roads compared to in traffic.

The types of injuries that can be sustained as a motorcyclist in an RTA can vary in severity, with injuries including:

  • Broken bones and cuts
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Back and spine injuries
  • Amputations
  • Fatal injuries

How long do I have to make a compensation claim for a serious RTA injury?

In the UK, there is a time limit set by law, which is known as the limitation period, and you need to follow it if you want to make a compensation claim for a brain injury. Typically, this period is three years from the date of the injury or from when you realised that your injury was caused by negligence. However, there may be some exceptions, particularly in cases involving minors or people who lack mental capacity. Therefore, it is essential to seek legal advice as soon as possible.

How much compensation will I get?

Every case is individual so to fully evaluate your claim, we need a medical report. This gives us an insight into the extent of your injury and identifies whether you can expect to make a full recovery.

Once we know this, we can assess the value of your case. In addition to your general damages (the money you receive for your injury), we also take into account your out of pocket expenses (what we term ‘special damages’). When these are clear, we can add them to the value of your claim. If you’re contacted by an insurance company, it’s important not to accept any offers of settlement or compensation without seeking or obtaining legal advice.

How long does it take to receive my compensation for a serious injury claim?

There is no set length of time to settle a serious injury or road traffic accident claim, It depends on a number of factors, including the details of your case whether it is contested (disputed by the other party involved). Even when not contested, serious injury cases tend to take longer due their complexity and the assessment process to determine the appropriate compensation for your injuries. However, one of our main aims will be to secure an early admission of liability where possible, so that we can apply for an interim payment to cover any financial needs while we progress your claim and negotiate for the maximum compensation for you.
