“The Fast Bikes Legal Clinic is compiled by Andrew Dalton, and his bike riding barristers and solicitors at White Dalton Motorcycle Solicitors.
They deal with personal injury claims and their sister company, Motor Defence Solicitors, deals with all the motoring offences. They know everything about bike law, Andrew is a former London motorbike courier turned barrister and solicitor, and we know he’s good.
All the White Dalton lawyers are qualified barristers, or solicitors, or both – and they all have full bike licences, too. They don’t act for insurance companies or the prosecution.
They are Britain’s most specialist law practice, and if they don’t know the answer to your question, there probably isn’t one. Don’t rely on the advice from your insurance appointed solicitor, get proper independent advice.”
