If you are looking to make a motorcycle injury compensation claim, the first thing you will need to consider is whether the accident was somebody else’s fault. If it was someone else’s fault, even partially – you have overcome the first hurdle and may be entitled to some kind of award.
Another person would need to be identified as having been responsible for the accident. This could be very straight forward (i.e. another road user), or it could be a Local Authority that is to blame. Whichever way, an experienced firm of solicitors will always be able to help you in this regard. If the other motorist is not able to be found it is still possible to obtain compensation through a scheme run by a government backed organization called the Motor Insurers Bureau.
Motorbike accidents can lead to severe injuries and the victim may have experienced real pain and discomfort for an extended period of time. As a result, they may not have been able to work and could have lost a considerable amount of income. They may also be facing a period of recuperation whereby they are likely to require specialist care and are not likely to receive income any time soon. It is in these types of situation that compensation claims can become a real matter of importance to the claimant.
There are many firms out there that are ready and willing to take on your compensation claim, but you need to be very careful to be sure that they have the right expertise and experience. Most firms will be able to assist you on a no win, no fee basis; so you may expect to pay for this service. Also, firms will give you a free consultation. Take advantage of this to pose as many questions as you wish. This should not just be about them checking to ascertain if you have a strong case; which they will do.
Personal injury firms are often able to offer you additional services. These include specialist assessments for the care that may be needed in the future; psychological evaluation and advice on any financial implications that may have occurred as a result of the accident. It is always a good idea to investigate these additional areas.
If you are successful in winning your case, the amount of compensation that you are awarded will always depend on the extent of the injuries that you suffered at the time of the accident. Your financial losses in the past and expected losses in the future should also be taken into account. When a claimant has experienced considerable pain and suffering and financial loss as a result, they should expect to receive many thousands of pounds for their award.
Motorbike injury compensation is all about attempting to place the victim of the accident as closely back to the position that they were in before the incident occurred. However, an experienced motor cycle solicitor will work to secure early help, financial assistance and access to Rehabilitation. This should go side-by-side with getting the maximum compensation.
