Being involved in a motorcycle accident can be a traumatic and stressful experience, potentially leaving you with expensive repair bills and life changing injuries.

If you have never had an accidentbefore, then making a claim for compensation may be the last thing you consider. While getting involved with a legal process may seem daunting to begin with, our essential guide to making a claim should give you the confidence you need to get your life back on track after an accident.

1.Contact Us

While it might be tempting to reach for the phone and contact your insurer first, bear in mind that some insurers will take any opportunity to make money from your case. Get in touch with one of our specialist claims handlers for advice before you do anything else and you will find yourself in a much better position to make those all important decisions after your accident.

2.Dont feel bad about claiming

Negative press coverage implies that there is a growing compensation culture in the UK, which might put you off making a claim. This is complete nonsense and if you have been in an accident, it is your right to be compensated.

3.Choose your own expert

Insurers often have their own selection of solicitors, who are often not chosen because of their service or experience. You are completely entitled to make your own choice about who handles your claim, so appoint someone who has a duty to you, not to shareholders and is an expert in bike claims.

4.Don’t accept blame

Even if you think an accident was your fault, it’s always a good idea to get advice from a specialist. We are more than happy to give advice to anyone who has been in an accident, even if it is just to set your mind at ease. As experts in motorbike claims we understand that you may be unfairly blamed for an accident that wasn’t your fault. We also appreciate that accident can occur when there is no contact with another vehicle.

5.Three-year rule

There are time limits that apply to most legal claims. For injury claims, this is usually three years from the date which you were injured so don’t leave it too late. Even if you think that you have plenty of time to bring a case, delays can mean medical notes get lost and witnesses have trouble remembering the incident making the case harder to prove.

In the unfortunate event that you are injured in an accident, we will provide you with access to the very best legal advice and representation as well as immediate rehabilitation support.

We understand bikers and pride ourselves in making sure that the experience is simple and easy for you. We are on hand to support you 24 hours a day and will stay with you all the way through the claim process. Start your claim
