Why would a motorcycle accident claim in Westminster fail?
Here are the top 3 reasons that have resulted in the failure of a motorbike accident claim. We have been in the personal injury claims business for around 13 years and we have spotted the following trends:
- A motorcycle accident claim will fail if the injured person cannot prove that another person caused the accident or cannot find the person who caused it. The best way to overcome this is to always call the police to the scene of an accident. They will collect evidence and will form an opinion on who was to blame. This is vital evidence for a road traffic accident claim.
- A claim might fail if you cannot prove that you were injured in the accident. It is not enough for you to simply say that you were injured – there must be proof. That proof is provided by written medical notes. Make sure that you seek medical attention soon after the accident – your doctor will write notes about your consultation and these can be used as evidence. You may also be asked to have a medical assessment report completed at a later stage.
- A motorbike accident claim will fail if it is started too late! There is a legal time limit of three years for an adult to start an injury claim. However, the most successful claims are started much earlier than that! It is no good deciding 5 years after the accident that you wish you had claimed because it will be too late!
