Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable during a crash, so when an accident occurs, the injuries a motorcyclist suffers are significantly more likely to be serious. Those injuries can have a long-term impact, requiring ongoing treatment and support, as well as affecting your ability to work and live your life to the fullest.
In these circumstances, claiming compensation is often essential to make sure you can get the help and support you need to minimise any negative impact on your life. Compensation can also replace the lost income and help you to deal with any other practical issues you are forced to face as a result of your injuries.
Our personal injury lawyers have extensive experience handling all types of road traffic accident claims, from straightforward, low-value claims to the most high-value and complex claims. We know exactly what is needed for a successful motorcycle accident claim, so can give you clear, confident guidance to help you secure the compensation you deserve.
Even if you were involved in a hit-and-run motorcycle accident or the other driver was uninsured, we can still help you claim through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB).

How we handle motorcycle accident compensation claims
We always tailor our approach to your situation, taking into account the details of your accident and any particular concerns you have. Our goal is to get you the best available settlement as quickly as we can for you while keeping the claims process as simple and stress-free as possible.
Straightforward, low-value motorcycle accident claims
If your claim is worth between £1,000 and £25,000, it will be considered a low-value claim and, as long as the claim is relatively straightforward, it can likely be dealt with through the Pre-Action Protocol for Low-Value Personal Injury Claims in Road Traffic Accidents.
Using the Pre-Action Protocol, low-value, straightforward motorcycle accident claims can often be resolved in around 3-6 months without the need for a court hearing. This can save you a significant amount of time, money and uncertainty.
Higher value & complex motorcycle accident claims
If your claim is more complex or high value, court proceedings may be required to secure fair compensation. This can take longer and typically involves higher legal fees, however, even high-value and complex motorcycle accident claims can often be resolved through an out-of-court settlement if the right approach is taken.
Where court proceedings are required, please be assured that our personal injury lawyers are highly experienced in pursuing all types of road traffic accident claims through the courts. We can offer the skills and expertise needed to secure the best available outcome for your claim, no matter how complicated the issues involved.
Unidentified and uninsured motorcycle accident claims
We can assist you to make a claim through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) where the driver who caused your accident was unidentified or uninsured.
This could apply if the driver:
- Did not stop and was not subsequently identified by police
- Stopped, but did not leave sufficient details to identify and contact them
- Did not have valid insurance
We can support you through the entire process of making a MIB claim, making it as swift and straightforward as possible for you to secure fair compensation.
Interim payments for motorcycle accident claims
It is often possible to secure interim payments where the defendant accepts liability for the accident, but the final value of the settlement has not yet been agreed upon.
This can be highly beneficial if you require immediate access to funds, for example, to cover treatment, care services or other costs you have incurred as a result of your injuries.
Funding for motorcycle accident claims
We understand that the costs involved with making a claim are a common concern, but this should not be a reason to put off taking action. We offer a number of flexible funding options for motorcycle accident claims, including conditional fee agreements (“no win, no fee”) where appropriate.
