Frequently asked questions - motorcycle accidents

1. What can I claim for if I am in a motorcycle accident?

  • Pain and suffering as a result of the injury
  • Loss of income
  • Expenses
  • Necessary services
  • Repair costs
  • Cost of replacement or written off value of your motorcycle
  • Hire cost of replacement motorcycle and kit
  • Towage and storage charges

In more serious injury cases you will be entitled to claim for the cost of alternative housing, accommodation needs, travel and transportation costs, care costs and rehabilitation requirements.

2. How long will the motorcycle claims process take?

A claim will be intimated on your behalf at the earliest possible opportunity.  A third party insurer can take a number of weeks to note interest. Under the terms of the Voluntary Pre Action Protocol, a third party insurance company has a period of 12 weeks in which to concede liability. 

At Digby Brown, our motorcycle accident solicitors take a very proactive approach to the entire claims process. If you have made a full recovery, we will be in a position to enter into negotiation towards settlement at an early stage. If the offer in settlement is inadequate, we will raise proceedings on your behalf in a Court of Law. In our experience, third party insurers frequently undervalue a claim as a result of heavy reliance on a computer software programme known as Colossus. That system is primarily designed to cut the cost of claims by reducing the value of settlements for injured victims. By proceeding to litigation, the injured motorcyclist will generally receive a higher offer.
