Motorcycle Claims

We are Britain's number one motorcycle claims solicitors with extensive experience in dealing with all types of motorcycle accident, from filtering to road surface.

All our solicitors ride motorcycles so have a deep understanding of the issues that affect motorcyclists on the roads today.

You can use us for your motorcycle claims even if you already have solicitors acting for you or solicitors appointed to you from your insurance company.

How Motorcycle Claims Work

We frequently take over motorcycle 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 motorbike accident.

When you call us, either to start or take over your motorcycle 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.

We will then see if your claim has prospects of success, if it does we will, in the vast majority of cases, deal with your motorcycle claim on a no-win, no-fee basis.

I already have solicitors dealing with my motorcycle claim, but want to change to you, can I do this?

We frequently take over motorcycle claims from existing solicitors 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 their motorcycle accident. The process of transferring your motorcycle claim from one solicitor to another is simple.

We will look at your case in detail, give you a proper valuation and do whatever it takes to get you fair and proper compensation for your Motorcycle accident - some firms of solicitors only want to push your case through as quickly as possible and at whatever cost to your compensation.

Filtering Motorcycle Claims

In filtering cases it is common for insurers to offer an 80/20 split against a motorcyclist while quoting the case of "Powell v Moody". This is a case decided in the 1960's about a motorcycle overtaking a line of traffic when a car pulled out of a side road, through the traffic, into the motorcycle. We have found that inexperienced solicitors will crumble and advise their clients to accept 80% responsibility for the accident.

Motorcycle Claims Overtaking

Undertaking Motorcycle Claims

We often come across arguments that no compensation should be payable in undertaking situations. The reality is that any case will turn on its specific facts and the liability issues may well be the same as for filtering

Hit-and-Run Driver Motorcycle Claims

If you are the victim of an accident with a hit-and-run driver, a vehicle that can't be traced or an uninsured third party you can still bring a claim.

This is submitted to the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB), an independent organisation created by the insurance industry to cooperate with the Government in compensating the victims of negligent uninsured or untraced motorists.

Motorcycle Claims from Potholes

Councils spend more on compensation claims arising from damage caused by potholes each year than they spend on repairing the potholes (Asphalt Industry Alliance 2008).

It is a relatively complex area of law where we take on very many cases that have been rejected by other solicitors. Most of these cases take around three years and some can go on longer. We use very special tactics in these circumstances and our strike rate of winning these cases is high.

Motorcycle Claims Involving Speed

It is almost inevitable that speed is alleged in the majority of motorcycle accidents, whether this is from direct observation or just on the basis that "the motorcycle must have been speeding because I did not see it."

Often there is little evidence of speed, although it may be possible for calculations to be performed based on physical evidence at an accident scene.

Don't take our word for it, read through the many testimonials we receive from our clients.

Excellent from start to end

Comprehensive expert management of my case. Outcome far above my expectations. My advice to anyone battling with a claims handling firm following a motorbike accident is "go to a firm of motorbike solicitors who understand the issues you are experiencing". I would 100% endorse White Dalton as a professional, committed caring firm.

Professional & Friendly

I found your service to be professional & friendly. My case was dealt with efficiently and promptly. Overall I was kept informed as it progressed although I am aware that much was taking place in the 'background'. I would like to say a big thank you to Andrew Prendergast and the team for their professional service.
