    Motorcycle accident compensation

    If you have fallen off your motorcycle due to the negligence or bad driving of somebody else, you may have a claim for motorcycle accident compensation.

    Below are some useful questions and answers in respect of motorcycle accidents and the compensation process

    Q. Does it matter when your accident happened?

    A. Yes. If you are not a minor, then the accident must have occurred within the last three years in order to bring a claim

    Q. What if you can’t afford to bring a claim for motorcycle accident compensation?

    A. The system is set up so that it shouldn’t cost you anything to start a claim. First, you can take the free online 30-second compensation test on Accident Advice Helpline’s website. After that, you can call Accident Advice Helpline’s free phone number on 0800 689 0500 (landline) to speak to one of our friendly, professional and knowledgeable advisers. As personal injury claims are carried out on a no-win, no-fee* basis, you will not be required to pay anything upfront.

    Q. If you want to replace your bike as it was damaged in the accident, is this possible?

    A. If your case is considered valid and a solicitor takes over to formally bring a claim against the negligent party, then your solicitor will formulate a list of all the expenses you have incurred due to the behaviour of the other party. This will include the out-of-pocket expenses which may form part of your motorcycle accident compensation claim.

    For this reason, you should keep receipts of all items you have paid out on, which you would not have had to pay had it not been for your accident. For items such as motorcycles, there will be guidelines as to how much is payable in a successful claim, depending on the make and the age of the vehicle. However, your solicitor will be able to go into this in more detail.

    Q. Who are Accident Advice Helpline?

Dame Esther Rantzen, the UK consumer rights champion, is tour firm’s patron and you will see her support for claims like yours throughout our website.

    Q. You broke your leg in the accident and you can’t get out of bed. Do you have to wait until your are mobile before submitting a claim?

    A. Not at all. Claims can usually be carried out over the telephone and there are no long physical forms to complete. While a medical assessment may be needed, obviously this will be done in the most convenient manner for yourself.
