Duncan Lewis Personal Injury Solicitors for Motorcycle Accident Claims


No Win No Fee Motorcycle Accident Claims


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.


What sort of Motorcycle Accident injuries can I claim for?


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:


  • Amputation
  • Blindness/loss of eye
  • Burns/abrasions
  • Brain/head injury
  • Concussion
  • Crush injuries
  • Deafness/hearing impairment
  • Dislocation
  • Facial disfigurement
  • Fractures
  • Internal injuries
  • Laceration
  • Paraplegia/quadriplegia/tetraplegia
  • Scarring
  • Spinal injuries
  • Whiplash injuries.


RTA Claims Portal


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.


How long do I have to make Motorbike Accident Claims?


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.


How much compensation can I claim for Motorbike Accidents?


Compensation for motorbike accidents includes:


  • General Damages for pain, suffering and loss of amenity
    The exact amount will be assessed according to the extent of injury, estimated recovery time and rehabilitation needed – and whether further medical treatment or even lifelong care is needed.
  • Special Damages to cover medical fees and out-of-pocket expenses
    Expenses might include physiotherapy, loss of earnings, travel expenses to hospital or damage to personal items such as your motorbike and clothing. In more serious cases, ongoing care, loss of future salary and pension or adaptations to your home would be included. .


Who pays the compensation for my motorbike accident claim?


Motorcycle accident claims are usually paid by the insurers of the person liable for the accident – often another road user, such as a car driver or a bus company.


Will I have to go to court to claim compensation? 

Your Duncan Lewis personal injury solicitor will keep you fully informed at all stages of the case.


Most motorcycle accident claims are settled out-of-court – Duncan Lewis personal injury lawyers negotiate hard to get the best settlement for you.


But if a court hearing is necessary, Duncan Lewis instructs leading barristers who specialise in motorcycle accident claims, to make sure you have the best legal representation possible.
