Achieving success in motorcycle accident claims

Road traffic accidents involving motorcycles can result in potentially very serious injuries to the rider or passenger of the motorcycle. If you suffered injuries by motorcycle accident without fault on your part, you may be entitled to motorcycle accident claims.

Medical assistance and motorcycle accident claims

The most important thing you should do after a motorbike accident is to seek medical attention. This will ensure your motoring accident injuries will be assessed, diagnosed and treated adequately, ensuring you do not suffer more than necessary due to unrecognised, more serious injuries than originally believed.

While your medical records will become part of the evidence required to motorcycle accident claim, you should also keep a personal record of:

  • When and where you were treated
  • What type of injuries were diagnosed/treated
  • How these injuries were treated

These records may come in handy when attending an independent medical assessment, which may become necessary as part of your injury claim procedure.

Information supporting motorcycle injury claims

Either immediately after the motorbike crash, or as soon after as possible if injuries prevent you from doing so straight away, you should gather as much relevant information about the accident on the road as possible. This includes obtaining:

  • Witness accounts of the event, names, addresses, and phone numbers
  • Insurance and contact details of road users involved in the accident
  • Names/name cards of attending police officers
  • Photos of the scene of the motorbike collision, damages and injuries
  • Medical records/assessment notes

Should you have incurred additional expenses, you will also need to retain invoices, receipts, bank statements and other documentation of such expenses. Potentially arising expenses you may be able to claim against may include:

  • Loss of income
  • Cost of ongoing care, treatments or therapy
  • Transport to/from hospitals
  • Assistance with tasks in the home
  • Childcare and more
