If I have a motorbike accident case

Like any other personal injury, you may have a case for making a motorbike accident claim if you can prove that another party was at fault for causing the accident, your injuries and the damage to your bike.

That standard of proof required in these cases is the ‘balance of probabilities’. Sadly that’s not usually an issue since most motorcycle accidents are caused by other road users not paying attention or poor road surfaces and spillages.

If it’s the former, you'd have a case against the insurer of the person who caused the accident. If the latter, your claim would be against the Highways Agency or the relevant local authority. Even if you were partly to blame for the accident it's still possible to make a claim.

Injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents can be just minor cuts and bruises, but given the vulnerability of a motorcyclist compared to other road users, life-long or life-threatening injuries are common.

It's unwise to assume that an immediate, obvious, injury is the full extent of any damage. In some cases, the symptoms of a far more severe brain injury for example may not become apparent until weeks or months after a seemingly minor accident.

That’s why it is vital to seek medical attention immediately, even if you think nothing is wrong, and make sure your chosen motorbike accident solicitors have the expertise, experience and patience to handle your case, usually on a No-Win-No-Fee basis.
