Expert motorcycle injury lawyers

The most common scenario giving rise to motorcycle accident claims is a collision with another vehicle, and in those cases, the motorbike injury claim is directed to the insurers of that vehicle (or if no insurers to the Motor Insurers Bureau).

In other cases, there may be no other vehicle involved and the accident was caused by the condition of the highway or the presence of an obstruction on it.

The Highway Authority (usually the Local Authority) is responsible for maintaining the fabric of the road. If it fails to do so and potholes or other defects arise as a result, then if those defects cause an accident the Authority may be liable.

If the road surface is made dangerous by ice and snow then the Highway Authority may be liable for resulting accidents if they are not able to show that they had – and carried out – a proper system for gritting.

The highway may become dangerous by spillages or leakages. A landmark case in 2003 paved the way for a claim to the Motor Insurers Bureau in motorbike injury cases arising from oil spillages, the principle being that the MIB have to meet claims against untraced motorists and that a large diesel spillage is likely to have been caused by the negligence of an untraced driver.

What you should do if you or someone you know has been injured in a motorcycle accident

  • Whether or not the other party is insured and because the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) have very strict time limits, it is very important that the following steps are taken after any accident:
  • Take down the details of the other party at the scene, including name, address, telephone, insurance details and vehicle registration number.
  • Report the matter to the police immediately. If for any reason this is not possible, report the accident in-person to a police station as soon as you can (and get a police reference number) .
  • Take details of any other party and any witnesses.
  • Contact your own insurers, if relevant.

Starting your claim

On contacting us you will speak in confidence to a member of our personal injury team who will ask you specific details about your accident claim including where and when it took place. It is helpful to the motorcycle accident claims process if you can provide us with as much information as possible, including any relevant pictures of the injury, pictures of where the injury took place, details of any witnesses and reports of any medical treatment you had as a result of the motorcycle injury.

We will then be able to advise you on whether or not you can make motorcycle accident claims for compensation.
