Motorcycle accident claim
Motorcyclists represent just 1% of UK road users yet account for up to 20% of serious injuries on our roads. The majority of these are caused through negligence of car drivers. If you have been a victim of a motorcycle accident that wasn’t your fault then you have every right to claim compensation for injuries, damage to your motorcycle, potential loss of earnings and other consequential losses.
Shires Law solicitors are specialists in motorcycle accident claims and have many years of experience securing maximum compensation for our clients. We operate on a No Win No Fee basis, you will not be out of pocket whether you win or lose.
Motorcycle accidents pose a wide variety of potential injuries, some of the most common include:
- Traumatic head injury
- Spinal cord injury
Motorcycle accidents can also lead to you being off work or suffering financial loss due to damage to vehicles and property (including loss of earnings if your work transportation is damaged), we ensure that we take everything into account whilst working to make sure you get the compensation you are entitled to for your motorcycle accident.
Should your motorcycle accident leave you without a motorcycle and you need one immediately, we can arrange a replacement motorcycle be sent to you straightaway. Our providers will aim to match the replacement with your existing motorcycle as closely as possible. Speak to us before your insurers as we could help you to avoid paying your insurance excess upfront.
If your accident is not mentioned here it does not mean you do not qualify for compensation, our motorcycle accident lawyers can help you to decide whether you have a valid claim.
HOW MUCH COULD YOU CLAIM?
Claim awards are largely dependent on the circumstance and severity of the injury. As a guide, severe injuries, such as severe head injuries (seriously disabled) can be potentially worth £265,000 compensation. For less severe injuries such as a ankle fracture you could be entitled up to £9,000 compensation.
LENGTH OF CLAIM
The length of a claim is again widely dependent on the situation and the injury, although rest assured that our car accident lawyers will deal with your case in the most time efficient manner. Claims for less severe injuries can typically be resolved within a few months, whereas a more severe injury could potentially take up to a few years.
