Personal Injury Claims for Motorcyclists

Owning a motorbike is something that many people across the UK choose to do, whether it’s for the practicalities of quick, easy and more affordable travel to and from work or purely for the love of going for a spin in your spare time. But for responsible and safe motorbike owners, just like with owning a car, there is always the possibility that other road users could cause an accident, resulting in ongoing or long-term physical, psychological and financial consequences for you.

Our experienced motorbike accident claims solicitors are here to provide professional advice, guidance and support to help you get the compensation that you are entitled to.

Motorbike Accidents in the UK

Aside from pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders who aren’t actually operating vehicles, those who use scooters and motorbikes are the most vulnerable road users in the UK. In 2020 alone there were 13,288 motorcyclists injured in road traffic related incidents with 282 losing their lives on UK roads.

There are a number of different ways that motorbike accidents most commonly occur including;

  • Failure to negotiate bends which accounts for around 9% off all motorbike accidents.
  • Poor road conditions including the weather and road surface issues such as mud, gravel and debris.
  • Low side accidents from the bike sliding and losing control on wet surfaces or spillages.
  • High side accidents that send the bike flipping over and the rider over the handlebars typically caused by vehicles pulling out at side roads and round abouts in front of the oncoming biker or suddenly turning when they are overtaking.

Have You Had a Motorcycle Accident?

If you have been injured as a result of a motorcycle accident that wasn’t your fault, then you could have strong grounds to make a motorbike accident injury claim for compensation. Our specialists offer a free 30-minute online consultation in which they can talk through your case with you to determine the claim potential and provide expert guidance and advice on how best to proceed.

Using an experienced, professional solicitor service not only helps to greatly reduce the stress of claiming but makes the process much more efficient, reduces delays in receiving settlements and ensures that you get the maximum motorbike compensation that you are entitled to.

What Type of Accidents You Can Claim For

There are a number of different types of motorcycle accidents that can be successfully claimed for including those for injuries as a result of;

  • Poor Road Surfaces

This includes damage to your property (motorbike) or injury to yourself as a result of poorly maintained road surfaces and issues such as potholes.

  • Negligent Drivers

If your accident was the fault of another driver who has collided with your motorcycle as a result of their failure to correctly follow the highway code then you could make a claim for compensation.

  • Uninsured Motorists or Hit and Runs

Unfortunately, there are estimated to be around 1 million uninsured drivers on the road which means that there is always a chance that you could be involved in an accident with one. However, just because a driver is uninsured or untraceable after fleeing the scene does not mean that you cannot claim as it can still be possible to pursue through the MIB (Motor Insurers Bureau).

  • Defective Motorbikes or Equipment

If you suffered an injury as a result of a defective motorcycle that caused an accident then it could be possible to prove that the machine was at fault and that the manufacturer is therefore liable. If there are injuries sustained due to a defective helmet or protective clothing then this too could be potentially proven and claimed for.

How Much Compensation Could I Be Entitled To?

Every case is completely unique with different people, vehicles, roads, conditions and variables that make it difficult to determine early on just how much compensation you could potentially receive.

At Sarah Waddington Solicitors we do not work on the basis of false promises and unrealistic claim values that are very unlikely to be achieved but rather the promise to provide a dedicated service that works to maximise your compensation reward.

Some of the different aspects of a compensation claim can include;

  • General Damages which cover compensation for pain and suffering.
  • Special Damages that include reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses that you incurred as a result of your accident including loss of earnings, cost of medications and private treatment.
  • Future Damages are not always possible to claim for but can be in cases where the claimant has a prognosis stating ongoing medical needs, procedures or care.

It’s finally over and we are out of the timeshare.

When I called in October last year and you answered the phone I was in a very bad place, having just realised I was being scammed again by J Foster Associates. You managed to calm me down and get my money back. I will not forget your calming voice that day and I will always be crateful to you for that. All the staff at Sara Waddington Solicitors have been excellent and the whole process has been smooth.

Mr B Davey

On behalf of my wife and myself, I would like to say a big thank you all at Sarah Waddington Solicitors who have helped us resolve our timeshare problem, you have put our minds at ease. I will not hesitate to recommend you should anybody who has a similar problem ask me in the future. Thanks again. Best Regards Mr B J Davey, Mrs J A Davey

Mr Terrence Webb

Former owner at Fortina Spa Resort, receiving over £14,000 in compensation. - "I was much relieved to be put in touch with you and I am just too impressed for words at the professionalism of the company."

P.A. Hobson

Thank you for your letter confirming the relinquishment of my timeshare. I was very pleased to receive it. I would like to thank you and your team for all your hard work, you made it very easy for me. All I had to do was be patient. So thank you very much and should anyone ask I will definitely recommend you.

Gary Semley

On a personal note today, after hearing the European Claim Centre (on the phone) call your company a 'scammer', today's conference came as further reassurance that we were absolutely with the right company. You may not realise it but your direct, and matter-of-fact 'bedside manner' left us in no doubt that we were under the care of very professional people (not that we should have needed any more reassurance).

Chris Roberton

Sarah gave excellent service and kept us informed in releasing us from Diamond Resorts points timeshare. Quite a relief to not have to pay those ever increasing maintenance fees. Thank you Sarah.

Mr and Mrs Andrews

When we got that final letter indicating that our membership with Diamond Resorts was now at an end it was such a relief. Financially it would have crippled us if we'd had to carry on paying the maintenance fees that were rising every year. When we took out our membership it was fine but everything went downhill after Diamond Resorts took over the business. It became a very expensive luxury which we could not afford and age and health became a problem. Diamond were very unhelpful when we tried to relinquish our membership and that was the reason why we turned to you for help. We would like to thank you for your help in this matter and we are more than happy with the representation and advice which you gave us.

Alan Clark

Sarah Waddington Solicitors has recently contested, and successfully won a flight compensation claim for me. I found them to be very friendly, helpful and extremely professional. The contact was minimal throughout with no hassle, and I was kept up to date with proceedings as things progressed. I received the full amount of compensation (although when I initially challenged the Airline myself they told me I wasn't entitled to anything!!) for which I am delighted. I would have no hesitation contacting Sarah Waddington again or recommending her to family, friends and colleagues.

Arman Mazlum

A first class service from an approachable yet highly professional practice. Dealt with my flight delay claim extremely swiftly and with minimal hassle. Much recommended.

Carol Walker

When the maintenance fees for our time share soared in price we decided to try and " get out of our contract" after much discussions we were told that it would be very difficult if not impossible eventually we were put in touch with Sarah and she said she could help. After many months of contact with the timeshare company Sarah was successful and our contract was cancelled. Sarah kept us informed every step of the way. So if you are looking to cancel your timeshare give Sarah a call I am sure she will give you excellent advice.

Colette Walton

When we were first told that Sarah Waddington Solicitors could terminate our contract with a points style timeshare company, we were concerned that it wasn't a legitimate claim, as we had been told by the timeshare company that it wasn't possible. However, Sarah Waddington's have managed to terminate our contract for us, for which we are very grateful. We were kept informed throughout the case, very politely and professionally. We would certainly recommend Sarah Waddington Solicitors to anyone who is having the same problems.

David Williams

I am very happy with the service and support Sarah has provide to me, in dealing with a complex case over the last 12 months. I would have no problems recommending Sarah to any of my friends. I have contacted other law firms in Leeds and found them pompous and arrogant, Sarah is not and works well those who have less or no legal knowledge. I would advise any new clients, Sarah is user friendly.

Paul Goodhall

Just received my cheque for over £600 for my Flight Delay claim which was handled by Sarah Waddington Solicitors. I had a flight delay with my family a few years ago and after coming across their website submitted my claim which was simple and stress free. They were able to get my compensation within a few months on a No Win No Fee basis, was well worth the wait and the fee and would highly recommend them to my friends and family which I have already done. The money will now go towards a much needed holiday for my family again and as much as the delay caused us to miss 3 hours of our holiday, to receive this money it goes a long way towards compensating us for the loss of the time and inconvenience. I now happily await the next 3 hour delay!!

Dr Pilkington
