If you have been injured while riding a motorbike, and the accident in which you were injured was not your fault, then you may be eligible for compensation.
You have the legal right to make a claim whether you were the rider or a passenger on a motorbike at the time of your accident. You can also make a claim for the following:
- If you were knocked off your motorbike by another road user;
- If you had to take evasive action to avoid another vehicle and you crashed;
- If flying debris from another vehicle hit you;
- If you crashed your motorbike because of a poorly maintained road;
- If you had an accident because of poor weather conditions.
There are also other scenarios in which a personal injury claims solicitor can win you compensation. Information about eligibility criteria can be found below:
Am I eligible to make a claim with a personal injury claims solicitor?
To make a claim, you cannot be wholly responsible for the accident in which you were injured, and your accident needs to have happened within the last three years, because after three years injury claims in the United Kingdom become time-barred or statute barred, preventing a personal injury claims solicitor or yourself from bringing your claim forward.
So long as you meet these criteria, then you are probably eligible for compensation.
What if I was involved in a hit and run?
If you were involved in a hit and run and the other road user has never been traced, then you can still make a claim. Under the circumstances, you will not have to claim with your own insurance company either. Instead the Motor Insurers’ Bureau will process your claim and pay you the financial compensation that you deserve for your accident and injuries. The same applies if you were hit by an uninsured or otherwise illegal road user.
How long will it take for me to get my compensation?

A lot does depend on the efficiency of the other side however. Your personal injury claims solicitor will ensure that you are kept updated throughout the claims process.
