Duncan Lewis is a leading firm of personal injury and Legal Aid solicitors and can advise on making no win no fee motorcycle accident claims.
Motorcyclists face a risk of suffering catastrophic and life changing injuries because of the speed and weight of motorcycles – and the exposure to other vehicles motorcyclists face.
Motorcyclists can be injured if their motorbike or motorbike equipment or protective clothing is defective – and in these cases a faulty goods claim can be made.
But motorcyclists are frequently injured simply because other road users fail to see them – and in accidents caused by the negligence or recklessness of another road user, bikers can claim for a whole range of injuries, including:
Road traffic accident (RTA) claims between £1,000 and £10,000 are classed as low-value claims and can be fast-tracked through the RTA Claims Portal set up by the Ministry of Justice.
Claims for motorbike accidents fall under the area of law known as personal injury.
Personal injury claimants usually have three years from the date of the injury to make a claim for motorbike accident compensation.
Claims can sometimes be made outside the three-year limitation period, however.
Because of the limitation period for motorbike accident claims, it is important to seek legal advice from Duncan Lewis personal injury solicitors as soon as possible if you are injured in a motorbike accident.
Family members can call Duncan Lewis for advice on making a claim if a loved one has been injured in a motorbike accident and is recovering in hospital.
