Thousands of people use motorbikes to travel around the country every day. They can be a convenient and fun alternative to travelling by car. The majority of motorbike journeys are uneventful but sadly, sometimes accidents that are not our fault can happen and people are injured. Injuries range from mild discomfort to life-changing, permanent disability. On top of all of this, many people find that they have financial issues to deal with. It is not surprising therefore that many people decide to pursue claims for motorbike accident compensation.
Top 5 tips for claiming motorbike accident compensation
- Contact a law firm like Accident Advice Helpline and we will guide you through the process of making a compensation claim. You can claim for injuries that occurred up to three years ago.
- You can call Accident Advice Helpline and discuss your situation with one of our friendly advisers. They will use our unique 30-second test to work out whether or not your motorbike accident compensation claim is likely to be successful. This advice is absolutely free and you are under no obligation to pursue the claim unless you want to. The choice is yours.
- Your adviser will put you in touch with one of our solicitors who will guide you through the process of making your motorbike accident compensation claim. Some people worry about being faced with expensive legal fees if their claim is not successful. Accident Advice Helpline’s solicitors work on a no-win, no-fee* basis and we never ask for any cash up-front.
- Keep records of any money that you have had to spend relating to your motorbike accident compensation claim. Maybe you have lost money because you have not been able to work. Maybe you have had to pay for extras like childcare or travelling expenses to medical appointments.
- Do not worry that you will have to attend lots of meetings with lawyers. Most claims can be handled over the telephone and very few cases actually go to court. You may need to attend one appointment locally with a doctor for a medical assessment. You may find it useful to have a record of any treatment and hospital visits that you have made, so that you can tell your adviser during the assessment.
Of course Accident Advice Helpline cannot guarantee the exact amount of motorbike accident compensation that you will get for your injuries, but with over 16 years’ experience and with the backing of consumer champion Dame Esther Rantzen, you can be sure that your case is being handled properly.
