Motorcycle Road Accident and Making Your Compensation Claim
Motorcycles can be dangerous vehicles, and as such they need to be used with due care and attention. The road surface can affect the likelihood of a motorcycle road accident, but these can also be caused by the negligence of other drivers, whether they are also driving a motorcycle or other vehicle.
If you are involved in a road accident like this and someone else is to blame, you can make a compensation claim in Portbury. There are some points you should note about a motorcycle accident before you initiate your claim.
In order to make a compensation claim in Portbury, the accident must have been caused by someone else and should have taken place within the last three years. You must have received medical attention for your injury and you will need to provide evidence, such as medical records and witnesses to the accident. The more information you can provide relating to your accident, the higher the chance you will have of receiving compensation.
When you start the claim process, Accident Advice Helpline will provide you with a specialist solicitor who will take over the claim for you. They will get in touch with the company or individual in question and will keep you updated throughout the process. We have a no win no fee obligation, so if you don’t win your claim then you won’t have to pay out any money. There is nothing to lose by making your claim for compensation.
Duration of Claim
The duration of your claim depends on a number of factors, including the seriousness of the injury and the willingness of the other party to admit liability. The more evidence and witnesses you have, the shorter the duration of the claim process. It can sometimes be a complicated issue, but you can sit back and let Accident Advice Helpline’s in-house solicitors deal with the process for you. There is never any specific time frame with a compensation claim in Portbury, so you really need to have as much patience as possible.
Value of Claim
The value of the claim works in the same way as the duration — it will vary depending on the accident and the individual or company who are liable for your injury. If the injury is very serious, such as a lost limb, you will be likely to receive much higher compensation than a more minor injury, although they will all be taken as seriously as each other. The solicitors here at Accident Advice Helpline have dealt with cases covering all aspects of motorcycle road accidents and will be only willing to help.
