Motorcycle Accident in Italy
Many British motorcyclists leave our crowded island to head for the open roads of Italy and the cities of Rome, Milan, Naples, Turin, Palermo, Genoa, Bologna, Florence, Venice. If you are unlucky enough to have an motorcycle accident in Italy or any European Union state, then White Dalton Motorcycle Solicitors can bring a case for you, here in the British Courts.
A number of our clients have been extraordinarily surprised with the speed with which settlements occur, once they have changed Solicitors, simply because we, as Court room lawyers, are familiar with this area of law, are happy to commence Court proceedings and invite the Judge in to decide how the case will be run, rather than wait at the insurers' convenience.
Some insurers will deal with the case on the basis of British damages whilst other insurers will insist on dealing with them in local damages in Italy, which is their right.
The basic rules are straightforward. The other driver or motorcyclist's insurers (provided they are based in the European Union) can be sued in the British Courts. The foreign law of damages applies.
So if you had been injured in a motorcycle accident in Italy, we will advise you how to secure compensation, and where necessary, issue British Court proceedings. However, do not leave it for long. Some countries have very short periods of limitation (Spain is the shortest at 12 months)

We regularly take over cases from other Solicitors. The most common mistake we see from other Solicitors is the apparent unwillingness or inability to start British Court proceedings once negotiations have either slowed down, or the insurers are beginning to become awkward.
Unless your Solicitors are fully familiar with the Second Treaty of Rome, and the law relating to accidents in Italy, then you would be well advised to change them. The law is not particularly complicated.
If you have had a motorcycle accident in Italy including the cities of Rome, Milan, Naples, Turin, Palermo, Genoa, Bologna, Florence, Venice call us now on 0800 783 6191 for advice on taking your motorcycle accident claim forward.
