What can I claim for in a motorcycle accident claim

A motor cycle accident claim can be for many things. It can be a simple motorcycle injury claim. This would be purely for compensation for injuries sustained in a motorbike accident. However, many claims need to take into account life-changing consequences. You may need to seek compensation for matters such as;

  • Loss of earnings, both immediately whilst off work and long term if your future earning potential is diminished as a result of the accident
  • Stress and other mental health issues arising from the accident
  • Ongoing medical support
  • Adaption of your home to accommodate any long-term injuries or disablement
  • Professional care such as nursing, cleaning etc
  • Rehabilitation costs such as physiotherapy and other forms of therapy

What to do if you’ve had a motorbike accident

If you have been injured in a motorbike or a cycling accident which wasn’t your fault then you have the right to claim compensation from the person or party which caused your accident.

As with any accident on a public highway you must

  • make a note of the make, colour and model of any other vehicles involved, with their number plates
  • note any damage to other vehicles involved
  • make a note of the other drivers’ names and addresses
  • do not make any admissions about liability
  • try and draw a rough sketch plan of the accident scene and where the vehicles ended up (if possible go back later and take some proper measurements)
  • write down your version of the incident
  • get photos taken of your injuries
  • get names and addresses of any witnesses
  • see a doctor as quickly as possible so that your injuries are noted
  • see a doctor again if your conditions worsens or new injuries emerge

motorcycle accident claim time limit

What is the motor accident time limit for making a compensation claim? To make an injury claim for a motorbike accident that wasn’t your fault you must normally start a claim within three years of the accident. But there are exceptions, this can be complex and is another reason to contact us as soon as possible.

Don’t delay, the sooner you act the better your recall of events and the sooner we can get the compensation that is your right.

How much is a good settlement for a motorcycle accident claim?

Whilst there are guidelines for compensation for different types of injury this is only the start of many motorcycle claims due to their often complex nature. This means it isn’t very useful to look for a motorcycle accident claim calculator. You are advised to contact us as soon as you can and we will be able to advise about the possible size of your compensation.

What if the other party wasn’t insured, or fled the accident scene?

The Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB) is a scheme that all UK based insurers must pay into to cover such eventualities. We can advise if you are eligible to make a claim with the MIB.
