Motorcycle Accident Claims

If you have been involved in an accident on a motorbike you may be entitled to make a claim for your injuries and loss of earnings. YouClaim has extensive experience in motorcycle accident claims, achieving compensation against car drivers, other riders, other road users and local authorities.

Motorbike riders are particularly vulnerable to accidents caused by defects in the road surface such as road damage, mud, oil, or other spillages on the road. In such cases a claim may be made against the party responsible for the spillage (e.g. building contractor) or the local authority responsible for maintaining the road.

Lack of seatbelts and outside protection make motorcyclists particularly susceptible to serious injuries if a crash occurs. Although biker safety has increased over the past decade, thanks to initiatives such as media awareness campaigns aimed at other road users, it is still an area where people are all too vulnerable to injury. 

What can be claimed for?

The two main areas are general damages and special damages:

  • General Damages - these damages tend to consist mainly of the compensation awarded for the injury itself, including the pain and suffering caused by the accident
  • Special damages - these damages consist mainly of the losses you've experienced as a result of the accident, such as;
  • Past losses - these may include loss of earnings, mileage costs, cost of medical treatment, personal possessions damaged in the accident, such as leathers and crash helmet, and the excess on a motorcycle insurance policy.
  • Future losses - this considers anticipated losses and expenses that you will incur in the future as a consequence of your accident - including any loss of future earnings and the cost of any on-going medical care that may be needed if you have suffered more serious personal injuries.

How much compensation can you claim?

As the circumstances and effects of every motorbike accident are different it is very difficult to put an accurate figure on the amount of compensation you are likely to receive, without having spoken to you. Our calculator will give you an idea of what your injuries may be worth, but does not account for special damages, which are different in each individual case. We will be able to give you a more realistic figure if you give us the full details of your accident, injury and recovery.
