Scotland offers some of the most idyllic routes in the world for motorcyclists. However, as some of the most vulnerable users of our roads, motorcyclists are often involved in accidents that are not their fault. The Department of Transport reported that in the year ending June 2018 there were 17,210 casualties as a result of motorcycle accidents, 5,760 of these casualties sustained fatal or serious injuries.
At Calio Claims, our specialist solicitors have years of experience in helping motorcyclists who have been injured in a variety of incidents including:
- Collisions with other vehicles at junctions
- Collisions whilst overtaking or filtering
- Falling on tight bends, or dangerous and slippery road surfaces
- Crashes caused by a defect with their bike
We know accidents sometimes require investigation and our team will help you present your case fully and favourably. We see things from a motorcyclist’s perspective and strive to get the best outcome for you, no matter how big or small your claim may be. We often deal with your claim on a no-win, no-fee basis.
What to do if you have been injured in a motorcycle accident?
Recording and retaining evidence can help us build your case and get you the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to. Evidence such as the details of vehicles involved and witness details will help your case. Keep any photographs you have taken at the scene of the accident, including defects such as potholes and retain evidence like damaged items, receipts for repairs, treatment or travel expenses.
If you do not have any specific evidence in relation to your accident, please do still contact us. Whilst this could prove more challenging to obtain the compensation you are entitled to, we will be able to investigate the accident and try to ingather the appropriate information required.
What can I claim for following a motorcycle accident?
We can help recover compensation for injuries, lost income, assistance, care and, of course, damaged equipment.
Damaged bike and equipment
Many motorcyclists are, understandably, concerned about their damaged bike and whether they can claim any compensation for repairs. We can help you recover the cost of any repairs to a damaged bike or even enough compensation for a replacement bike and compensation can run into tens of thousands of pounds. It can include anything damaged in the accident such as your helmet, shoes, glasses, clothing, bike, computer or phone.
It is helpful if you retain proof of the damage such as photographs or the bike and clothing itself. You should also have the bike assessed by a specialist motorcycle mechanic or shop and retain any receipts for replacement items, and those can be recovered too.
Loss of earnings and assistance
You may have had to take time off work because of the accident. If you lost out on wages or salary whilst you were absent, then you may be able to claim for the amount you have lost.
If you required help from family or friends whilst you were recovering from the accident then damages for help around the house, mobility, personal care and more can be obtained.
If the accident has meant you couldn’t enjoy a holiday or if the accident happened abroad then we can help too. You will be required to provide any receipts and documentation in relation to the holiday booking or travel.
A motorcycle accident can have a significant effect on you and your loved ones. We are here to help you recover compensation from the party at fault.
