FAQ about making a claim after a motorbike accident in the City of London
London is undoubtedly the busiest city in the UK. If you have been injured as the result of a motorbike accident in the City of London, no matter whether you were a passenger or a pedestrian, you will likely be entitled to compensation. Read on to discover the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions…
How much compensation will I get?
This depends on the circumstances of your case. What injury have you sustained? How serious is it? How is it impacting your everyday life? These are all questions that will be asked in order to decipher how much general damages you will receive. You will also get special damages. This is money for any out of pocket costs you have experienced as a consequence of your injury, such as medical costs and loss of income.
What details should I get from the person that caused the incident?
You will need to get all of their contact information. This includes their full name, telephone number and address. You should also get the details of their insurer. Make note of the model of their vehicle and their registration number as well.
How long will I have to make a claim?
You have three years to make a claim. This is three years from the date of the motorbike accident in the City of London, not the date of your diagnosis. Moreover, court proceedings must be issued within this period. The sooner you make your claim the better, as you will find it much easier.
Will I have to go to court?
It is unlikely. There are of course no guarantees, and thus your case may result in a trial. However, this only happens in two per cent of cases. It is in the interest of both parties to get everything wrapped up as quickly and as hassle-free as possible.
