Check out our guides on motorcycle accident injuries for more information. For minor injuries you may not have bothered going to hospital or your GP. Fall off your motorcycle and most people will accept that an injury is pretty much inevitable. Where you have seen your GP or gone to hospital a brief letter or a copy of your medical records may be sufficient. Alternatively, photos on your phone or a camera may suffice.
More serious cases must be backed up by medical evidence, usually obtained from an independent expert. Reports can be expensive, but the cost of most are now governed by guidelines. The injury and its effects must have been caused by the accident. Victims usually have a simple logic that if they were fine before the accident and are not fine now then all the problems must be related to the accident. But it is not what you know, but what you can prove.
Compensation for being knocked off motorbike
The starting point for calculating the level of compensation if you have suffered injury from being knocked off your motorbike is the “Judicial College Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages in Personal Injury Cases“. This sets out in tabular form brackets for different types and severity of injury. You assess which bracket the injury falls within and then where in the bracket. You fine-tune the figure using relevant case law.
What can be claimed?
Pain, suffering and loss of amenity are usually quantified together and a single award made. Emotional shock, fear, anxiety and embarrassment are included in this award. A person who suffers only emotional distress that is not connected to physical or psychiatric injury does not have a claim unless it is serious enough to amount to a recognised psychological condition.
How does a motorcycle accident claim work?
We frequently take over motorcycle accident claims where motorcyclists feel that their current solicitor doesn’t have their best interest at heart or isn’t interested in obtaining the maximum and fair level of compensation for a motorcycle accident.
When you call us, either to start or take over your motorcycle accident claim, our solicitors will have a detailed conversation with you about the events that led up to the accident, any damages to kit and bike and injuries to you. The solicitor will then explain whether or not you have a case and the next steps.
What to do next?
Contact us either on 0800 783 6191, email or we can call you at a time convenient for you. You will spend a couple of minutes with one of our admin team to obtain some basic details and then transferred to one of our solicitors for advice.
0800 783 6191 is the only number you need for your motorcycle accident claim.
