Motorbikes can be a cost-effective and convenient way to travel and many people thoroughly enjoy riding them.
The majority of motorcycle journeys are uneventful but sadly sometimes accidents can happen and the motorcyclist gets 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. For these reasons, many people who have been involved in a motorcycling accident that was not their fault start thinking about making a motorbike compensation claim.
Top 5 tips for making a motorbike compensation claim
- Contact Accident Advice Helpline and we will guide you through the process of making a motorbike compensation claim. You can claim for injuries that occurred up to three years ago.

Some people worry about being faced with expensive legal fees if their claim is not successful. Accident Advice Helpline works on a no-win, no-fee basis so you won’t have to pay our fees if we don’t get you any compensation.
- Many people find that it is useful to keep records of any money that they have had to spend relating to their claim. Maybe you have lost money because you have not been able to work. May be 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. It is usually possible for a motorbike compensation claim to be handled over the telephone and very few cases actually get 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 the doctor during the assessment.
Of course, Accident Advice Helpline cannot guarantee the exact amount of compensation that you will be awarded 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.
