Motorbike Accident Claims
Motorbike accidents can happen anywhere. They frequently happen on urban roads as a result of the negligence of drivers who fail to take care to look out for motorcyclists.
Even if you are a very experienced rider, wearing a helmet and full leathers, you are at risk from inattentive drivers. Your helmet may prevent a minor head injury and your leathers may save you from friction burns if you come off your bike, but the impact of a collision can be so severe that injury will result. Being involved in a road traffic accident and suffering injuries is a shocking and frightening experience and the priority is always to get safe and obtain medical help as soon as possible. Therefore, someone, who has just been involved in a collision, might not think at the scene of the accident to obtain photographs and details of all parties involved, especially independent witnesses, who will confirm how the accident occurred.
Our team of lawyers help victims of motorcycle accidents recover compensation for their injuries which are mostly:-
FracturesWhiplashHead injuries Spinal injuries Shoulder injuries De-gloving injuries Psychological injuries
We understand how a motorcycle accident can have a devastating effect upon your life and your family. You may be unable to return to work. You may need a lengthy period in hospital or outpatient treatment. Our lawyers can access for you specialist rehabilitation, to enable you to make the best possible recovery from your injuries as quickly as possible.
In the case of serious injuries, we arrange for a case manager to take control of the rehabilitation process, enabling you to be seen and treated privately.
Most claims can be handled on a no win no fee basis, which means that you do not need to worry about paying for your legal costs.
Am I eligible to claim compensation?
If you want to make a claim for personal injury, we will look at the circumstances of the accident and investigate fully how it happened and advise you about how you can claim. Even if the other driver or other parties present at the accident scene suggest that you are to blame for the accident, you might still have a claim, as liability for an accident might be split, meaning that two or more parties might be found to be partially to blame for the accident.
Therefore, even if you think that you do not have a good case, Levenes will advise you as to whether there are basis to claim split liability for an accident. Levenes might be able to prove that another party was partly to blame for the accident and you will still recover compensation for your injuries and financial losses reduced by the percentage of your contributory liability for the accident.
