Motorcycle Accident Claims
Were you involved in a motorcycle accident? If so, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries and damages.
At WBW Solicitors, our experienced legal experts can help you navigate the legal process and fight for the compensation you deserve. Our motorbike accident lawyers have experience helping riders and their families claim compensation for a variety of injuries.
Motorcyclists can be vulnerable and exposed to injury on the roads and can be left with serious injuries if they are involved in a road collision. Although many riders are skilled in their riding and hopefully well-protected with the right riding gear, this cannot prevent all injuries.
Motorcycle accidents can result in a wide range of injuries, from minor scrapes and bruises to serious and even life-threatening injuries.
Common Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents
Some of the most common injuries we see in motorcycle accident cases include:
- Road rash: This is a common injury that occurs when a motorcyclist’s skin comes into contact with the pavement. Road rash can cause severe pain and can lead to infection if not properly treated.
- Fractured or broken bones: Motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to fractures and breaks, especially in the legs, arms, and ribs. These injuries can be extremely painful and can require extensive medical treatment.
- Traumatic brain injuries: Head injuries are among the most serious injuries that can result from a motorcycle accident. Even a mild brain injury can have long-term effects on a person’s cognitive abilities and overall health.
- Serious head and spinal cord injuries: These injuries can result in partial or complete paralysis, depending on the severity of the injury.
- Fatal injuries that result in the death of the rider
If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, it’s important to seek medical attention as soon as possible and to contact a specialist motorcycle accident lawyer who can help you get the compensation you deserve.
We know that the trauma of a motorcycle accident can last far beyond the treatment for your injuries. Our motorbike accident solicitors are experienced in holding other motorists to account if they’ve caused a collision. We also have access to specialist medical and physiotherapy experts – who can provide rehabilitation to help you recover from your injuries.
In our experience of handling motorbike accident compensation claims, we’ve found that many of those involved in such accidents are of working age, and are often the main household earners. This means families can be left in financial hardship after a motorcycle accident. Most of the claims we handle are on a No Win No Fee basis.
This means that you don’t need to worry about paying anything upfront and that you won’t have to pay any legal fees if your claim is unsuccessful.
Even if your insurance company has recommended another law firm, remember that you’re entitled to make your own choice and should be able to choose a specialist solicitor.
