I have been in a motorbike accident – can I claim compensation?
If you have been involved in a road traffic accident whilst riding a motorbike, you may be entitled to receive personal injury compensation. This is a sum of money awarded to you based on the type of injuries you have suffered as a result of your accident, ensuring you are protected.
To be eligible to receive compensation, your accident must have happened at some stage in the last three years. It must have been someone else’s fault – perhaps the driver of a car, another vehicle or even a pedestrian – and have resulted in the need for medical attention. If you think you may be able to claim compensation, it is recommended you use a motorbike claim calculator to find out how much you could be entitled to.
How do I use a motorbike claim calculator?
You will be able to find a motorbike claim calculator online: it is always best to use one offered by a trusted and reputable compensation provider or personal injury lawyer to ensure it is as accurate and up-to-date as possible.
At the Accident Advice Helpline, we have a quick and simple 30 second tool which will calculate the compensation amount you may be entitled to following a motorbike accident. This will take into account the location of your injuries (perhaps you have endured a broken leg or a head injury) and then provide an estimated compensation amount, with a lower and upper range depending on the severity of your case.
What should I do next?
A motorbike claim calculator is a very useful tool but it does have its limitations; able to provide an estimation only. To arrive at your expected compensation amount, your legal representative will take into account:
- The location and severity of your injuries
- How long you are likely to suffer from your injuries
- The impact on your ability to work, and any resulting loss of earnings
- The emotional and psychological impact of your accident and resulting injuries
- Care costs
- Medical expenses
- Equipment costs (for example if you need a wheelchair)
Claims cases vary vastly from person to person, and so you should speak with a compensation provider to discuss the specifics of your case as soon as possible.
