    How to start a Motorbike Accident Claim

    To start a motorbike accident claim, call our friendly and expert solicitors today and tell us about your accident and your injuries.

    We offer all new motorcyclist clients a free initial phone consultation, during which we will build a picture of your claim and try to answer any questions you may have.

    If we think you have reasonable prospects of making a successful claim, we will arrange to visit you at home, at hospital or at a location convenient to you to take statements and sign some documents and agreements, such as our No Win No Fee agreement.

    We pride ourselves on offering both a high standard of legal advice and an excellent standard of customer care throughout the claims process.

    What is a No Win No Fee Agreement?

    This is how we fund the majority of our personal injury claims, including motorbike accident claims.

    These agreements are commonly referred to as either a “CFA” or a “No Win No Fee Agreement”.

    The nature of these no win no fee agreements means that law firms take all the financial risk and not the client.  If a claim is unsuccessful for any reason (liability or medical grounds for example) the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time spent up to that point in the claim process.  For taking this risk, it is common for all law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a percentage of the client’s compensation at the end of a successful claim. We cap our % fee at 25% of our client’s damages.  Law firms fees are mostly paid by the insurers of the losing party, not the client personally and no upfront fees are required to be paid by our clients to get a no win no fee claim up and running.

    If you have any questions about no win no fee agreements and how your claim will be funded then please contact our experts, we will be happy to discuss this with you.

    How long do I have to make a motorbike accident claim?

    The law states that there is a 3 year period from the date of the accident in which you are able to make a claim, though in some circumstances this may be longer, if you are claiming on behalf of a child for example.

    Despite this 3 year window of opportunity to make a claim, we recommend all clients contact us as soon as possible after an accident so you do not fall foul of this limitation period.

    Are you concerned the accident was partly your fault?

    Every accident is different and there may be some circumstances in which you are partly to blame, however please do not let this put you off contacting us,  you may still be able to pursue a successful claim for compensation. Your contributory negligence may be deemed as negligible, which may mean you are still entitled to claim compensation.

    You should always seek legal advice to establish your legal position.

    How long do serious motorcycle accident claims take?

    This is one of the most common questions we are asked by our clients and it’s difficult to give a definitive answer.

    What we can say is that every claim is different and that in some straightforward cases, claims may settle in 12 months, whereas more serious and complex matters may take several years to settle.

    Rest assured, our experienced motorbike accident claims lawyers will keep you updated throughout the claims process and work as hard as we can to settle your claim for the maximum amount of compensation.

    How much compensation will be awarded?

    There are many factors which are considered when calculating the value of a compensation award. Some of the factors include:

    • The severity of your injuries
    • How long it takes you to recover
    • Whether you are permanently disabled
    • If you have lost earnings
    • Whether your future earning capacity has changed as a result of your accident
    • The cost of long term care and rehabilitation

    Every claim is different so for a detailed view on your individual claim, contact Nigel Askew Solicitors today for a free consultation.
