How Much Compensation For A Motorbike Accident

Unfortunately, injuries after motorbike accidents can be extremely serious and in some cases, fatal. Those who ride motorbikes may assume some kind of risk in riding them in the first place, however, there are a number of accidents caused by other motorists involving motorcyclists every day.

Accordingly, if the accident was someone else’s fault, then a motorcycle accident claim for personal injury can be brought.

What should I do if I’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident?

If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, the first thing you should do is make sure you receive medical treatment. Not only will this help with your injuries, but your medical record will also be a vital piece of evidence in your claim.

You should also make sure you have the details of the other motorist involved, as any personal injury claim brought against them will have to be dealt with by their insurers.

If the police weren’t present after the accident, it’s also worthwhile contacting them as again this could prove valuable in your claim. Where possible, you should also record the contact details of any witnesses to the accident.

Personal injury solicitors

Making a claim against another individual (or their insurance company) can be a difficult process, so you should always contact personal injury solicitors to conduct this on your behalf. Once provided with details of the accident, advice will be given on the chances of succeeding with the claim and the potential levels of compensation available.

How much compensation will I receive?

The levels of compensation will depend on the actual injuries sustained and any other financial costs that have occurred following the accident.

If your claim is successful, damages will be awarded to compensate you for:

  • Pain and suffering – for the actual injuries suffered
