If you have been injured or suffered the loss of a loved one in a motorcycle accident that wasn’t your fault, contact Win Wales today for a no-obligation consultation.
Although serious injuries from motorcycle accidents have fallen since the 1980’s, data published in 2015 by the Office for National Statistics show that motorcycle accidents account for the majority of fatalities and major injuries on our roads. Data from 2013 states “the risk of death for a motorcyclist is at least 57 times than that for a car occupant.” Unfortunately, motorcycle users are at high risk of being involved in a serious road traffic accident.
Motorcyclists are exposed road users, even if they ride responsibly and wear protective clothing. An accident for a motorcyclist will often result in serious injury that can cause long-term issues for the rider and their family. Our lawyers are specialised in helping riders with compensation claims for; whiplash, broken bones, brachial plexus injuries, serious head injury and injuries to the spine. The distressing incident of a motorcycle accident will often reach beyond receiving medical treatment and in some cases, will have a knock-on effect for many years to come. Win Wales has a history of working with riders to get them the compensation they deserve.
Our sensitive team can help families who have lost loved ones to make a compensation claim. Losing a loved one to a road traffic accident is devastating enough without having to deal with the added financial pressure of losing an income. The vast majority of motorcycle fatalities are by riders who are of working age and more often than not, they are the main earner in the family. Win Wales can help family members claim compensation, relieving some of the financial pressure associated with the death of a loved one.
Remember, you reserve the right to choose who represents you for your compensation claim, even if your insurance company has recommended someone else. Our personal injury lawyers are specialised in dealing with all aspects of your claim and you are entitled to choose a specialist to represent your best interests.
Understanding No Win No Fee Motorcycle Accident Compensation Claims
No win no fee compensation claims are common throughout the country owing to the fact that Motorcyclists are more likely to have been in a serious or fatal accident than any other road user.
What Does “No Win No Fee” Mean?
No win no fee means that the claimant will not be charged for our services if the claim happens to be unsuccessful. This often means that a personal injury lawyer will only take on cases that have a high likelihood of being successful.
Compensation after a Motorcycling Accident
Why is Compensation Important?
Compensation is about ensuring that you can get back to leading a normal life as soon as possible. It is not intended as a form of punishment. Recovering from an injury can take time, and this can place a financial strain on personal finances. Loss of earnings, costs relating to medical treatment and the emotional impact of an accident all need to be considered.
What is considered a Viable Claim?
You have to prove that the accident was not your fault, once this is agreed, you have to prove that the accident has caused you to suffer a personal injury.
How Much Compensation Can I Expect to Receive?
Compensation is evaluated on a case by case basis. The extent of the physical injuries and the psychological impact of an accident have a large influence on deciding the amount of compensation rewarded. The court will also examine the amount of medical care you have had to have.
Why Seeking a Personal Injury Lawyer is Vital
It is often quite clear who is to blame for an accident but there can be complications that mean that the claimant could be found at fault. Personal injury lawyers are specialised in dealing with motorcycle compensation claims and are experienced in judging whether you have a chance of compensation. They will ensure that they have all the necessary evidence and facts before pursuing a claim.
What Should I Do After an Accident?
Wherever possible note down as many details as you can about the accident. This includes insurance information, number plates and witness statements. If you are able, it can be useful to take photos of the scene. Keep a log of your expenses and keep a diary of your injuries and the treatment you received.
Making a Claim Against the Council
The council is responsible for repairs such as potholes in a reasonable time. If you suffer an injury from an accident as a direct result of actions by the council, you could be eligible to claim compensation for their negligence.
