Motorbike accident compensation payouts – what you need know.
If you have been involved in a motorbike accident that was not your fault, you could be eligible for a motorbike accident compensation payout from those at fault.
After an accident, motorbike riders can be left with damaged property and injuries. Some are even left not able to work. If this is you, then read on for what you need to know about making a motorcycle accident claim.
There is a time limit to filing a motorbike accident claim.
If you are involved in an accident, you have 3 years to file a claim against the responsible party. However, it is strongly recommended that you make an appointment to see a solicitor as soon as possible after the accident.
The longer the time frame between accident and the time of filing the claim – the less likely it is that you will be able to get maximum compensation. Details can be forgotten and we have experienced that the results of claims that are filed late are not so positive.
You can claim for medical expenses.
If you are injured in an accident, then it’s possible that you can claim for medical expenses. You can also claim compensation for damage to your motorbike and property.
If you could not work due to your injuries and lost wages, then it’s possible that you could be entitled to a payment to compensate you for this loss. It is advised that you keep receipts for any expenses incurred as a result of the accident as proof to support the claim.
Motorbike accident compensation claims can be made on a No Win No Fee basis.
