Motorcyclists are some of the most vulnerable road users, along with pedestrians and road cyclists. Motorcyclists are more exposed than those driving 4-wheeled vehicles and so the accidents motorcyclists are involved in tend to have more serious consequences. The most common injury received is a lower-extremity injury. The most severe injures are head injuries (which are so common, we have a dedicated page for them). It does not matter what injury is sustained, you may qualify for a claim if the accident was not your fault.
Have you been injured within the last three years while riding a motorbike? Start your claim process today by using our 30-second motorbike claim calculator. At Accident Advice Helpline, we believe in providing you with a professional, efficient service.
The top 5 most useful things to record after a motorbike accident:
- Details of everyone involved
- Contact details of witnesses
- Evidence of road conditions
- Evidence of damages
- Medical details
Whether your accident involved another motorcyclist, 4-wheeled vehicle driver or a pedestrian, it’s beneficial to gather insurer details and policy numbers of all parties involved. If eyewitnesses are present, then it’s worth getting their contact details too.
If there are any notable road features, e.g. traffic lights or roadworks that will be relevant to your claim, it’s best to get photographic evidence of these. Evidence of damage is, of course, of vital importance. Everything from damage to your motorcycle and other vehicles, to street objects such as road signs and skid marks should all be well documented to have the best chance of a successful claim. Medical details are also, last but not least, important when it comes to making a claim.
What information does the motorbike claim calculator require?
