Motorcycle Accident Claims

Motorcyclists tend to be highly skilled drivers who only take to the road in full protective gear. But sadly, serious accidents still occur. And these can be devastating. Motorcyclists might only represent around 1% of UK traffic, but they account for 18% of all deaths and injuries. Research also suggests that those hurt tend to also be the breadwinner of a family, which is why getting professional help, support and compensation is a must following an accident.

Here at Satchell Moran Solicitors, we’re here to help. Our highly-skilled team of personal injury lawyers will assess your case swiftly and advise you on how to proceed. We know that trauma following an accident can be overwhelming, particularly in the event of paralysis, brain damage or a fatality, which is why we deal with each compensation claim sensitively and professionally.

Your Right To Claim

Motorcycle accident compensation claims can be complex. As well as receiving compensation for physical injuries such as broken bones, brachial plexus injuries, serious head and spinal injuries, and fatal injuries, it’s also our job to ensure medical expenses are covered and that you have the correct recovery support. The trauma of an accident often lasts long after any physical injury has healed too, and this needs to be considered as part of the claim. Our expert personal injury team will work with you every step of the way for the best possible results.

When to Make a Claim

Motorcycle accidents can leave families in financial hardship. That’s why it’s important to speak to us as soon as you can. We know it’s a lot to deal with but we’re here to help you on your journey to justice and have a long history of holding other motorists accountable.

Be aware that insurance companies often try to resolve cases directly. This might negatively impact the compensation you’re entitled to, so it’s wise to seek legal advice.

How Much Compensation For a Motorcycle Accident?

While we can’t give you an exact pay-out figure, we can tell you that the amount of compensation you receive will depend on the circumstances of your case. This will take into account the severity of the accident and the personal injuries caused as well as the length of time someone needs hospital treatment, physiotherapy or mental health support. Whatever happens, we always operate with full transparency.

How do Motorcycle Accidents Happen?

Our motorcycle accident claim experience tells us that motorbike collisions occur for many different reasons. Scenarios include:

✔ Another motorist merging into the path of a motorcyclist claiming they didn’t see the biker in their mirror.

✔ Another motorist turning across the path of the motorbike.

✔ Motorists driving into the back of a bike due to poor braking, road monitoring or speeding.

✔ Collisions at, or near, a road junction. T-junctions are particular risky for bikers, with many collisions happening in this type of area.

✔ Another vehicle changing lane into the biker’s path and failing to check their mirrors.

✔ Impacts at roundabouts which are notoriously dangerous for motorcyclists.

✔ A parked vehicle opening a door into the path of the motorbike causing the rider to swerve and fall, or to hit another vehicle.

✔ Pedestrians stepping into the way of a motorbike causing harsh braking and an accident or a swerve-related accident.

✔ Potholes and uneven road surfaces, poorly maintained roads or failure by local authorities to keep surface in a safe condition.

✔ Accident caused by defective motorbike parts.

Each situation can be traumatising in its own right, so speak to us today for further help, support and professional guidance regarding your motorcycle accident claim.
