Car and Motorcycle accidents can be awful, but the aftermath can be even worse. If you are kept away from work, off the road, or, worse, left disabled, you will need help to move on positively.

Our ambition is to make sure the accident was the worst of it and to minimise the stress and complications of anything that comes after, for your sake and the sake of those who rely on and care for you.  You can talk to us any time in complete confidence and we will work with you closely, considerately and collaboratively.

When motorcyclists have accidents, it is often the motorcyclist that is considered blameworthy simply because to the non-riding public the rider often appears to be aggressive, fast and, perhaps to a certain degree, arrogant, which in some cases may actually be quite true.

On this basis, the third-party insurers will often, whatever the circumstances, try and hold the motorcyclist 100% liable for the cause of the crash, simply so they can contest liability and mitigate their losses and, therefore, hopefully reduce the overall costs to their shareholders.

Nobody wants to be involved in a crash, whether it be a minor knock or a major ‘off’, but as motorcyclists it is a risk we face every day and, let’s be fair, we accept that risk as part of the lifestyle and our love of bikes.

In a previous article, I gave advice on things that you can do to make life easier for you and your legal team wherever possible immediately after the crash, but once the dust settles, the next question that crops up on a regular basis is "How much is my claim likely to be worth?" 

 

 

You are able to instruct the solicitor of your choice at any time.  It is normally straightforward and will not cost a thing.

If you are dissatisfied with your current solicitors, perhaps for one of the reasons below, get in touch. 

  • You are being advised to accept an offer on liability that you do not agree with.
  • You are unhappy with the experts that your solicitor has instructed.

  • Not all of your ongoing symptoms and impairments have been taken into account.

  • Your solicitor has not obtained an interim payment or has not obtained an interim payment of a sufficient sum.

  • Your loss of earnings has not been adequately quantified.

  • The long term effect of your injuries and impairments has not been adequately considered.

  • The long term effect your injuries and impairments will have on your employment and career has not been adequately considered and calculated.

  • You believe that your case should be conducted by a more senior and knowledgeable lawyer.

  • You consider that you case is being rushed through to settlement too early.

  • If you would like to discuss transferring your case, please get in touch. In most cases it is a straightforward process and it will not cost you anything to transfer.

Depending on your situation you may be eligible for government funding called 'Legal Aid.' You may also qualify for 'no win no fee' action on your case
