Your injury on your motorised bike
Wherever your accident took place, if it was due to someone else’s negligence and was within the last three years, you could be able to make a motorised bike accident claim. However, you may not be sure who is responsible for health and safety and maintaining the road, path or other area where you were riding. There could be a loose paving stone, a pothole, or even some overgrown weeds that make riding over the surface dangerous. The responsibility for highways lies with local authorities, and local councils have a policy of maintenance and repair in respect of streets and pavements. Unadopted streets are the responsibility of the street owners, and similarly owners of private areas, such as tourist attractions, are in charge their health and safety and maintenance.
When you contact Accident Advice Helpline one of our friendly professional advisors will take your details and assess if you are eligible to make a motorised bike accident claim. If you are, they will then allocate your case to one of our expert lawyers who work on a no-win, no-fee basis so there is no cost to you for starting your claim. They will then find out who is responsible for the place in which you had your accident.
Your motorised bike accident claim
Your accident could have had financial implications, such as having to use taxis if you are unable to drive your car, or increased childcare costs if you need help at home. In addition, you may have had to take time off work and make hospital visits. When you make your claim you will be asked to provide proof of this, so keeping invoices and receipts relating to these expenses is important. You could use your compensation claim to help cover any medical fees or other expenses related to your injury.
How long will my claim take?
Although this can vary, most cases can be processed over the telephone. Some people will have to undergo a medical assessment.
In order to start your motorised bike accident claim, you can call our free, 24-hour helpline on 0800 689 0500 from a landline, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone.
