Motorcycle Accident Claims Solicitors
Motorcyclists are one of the most vulnerable road users and tend to suffer more severe injuries than other road users in the event of an accident. If you have been injured while riding a motorcycle, you may be entitled to financial compensation. At Graham Evans & Partners Solicitors, our motorcycle accident solicitors have the experience and in-depth understanding of personal injury law to help you obtain compensation.
As one of the best-known law firms in South Wales, our team has represented people from this region and beyond for over 30 years. We pride ourselves on providing a bespoke service to all our clients, no matter how large or small their matter. You can be assured our motorcycle accident claims solicitors will take the time to closely examine the circumstances of your case to establish a solid legal basis for a claim, and keep you fully informed as the matter progresses.
We are accredited by the Law Society of England and Wales for personal injury law. We are also members of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) with some of our team accredited as senior litigators within the organisation.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, please talk to us. We can quickly establish whether your claim for compensation will have a strong chance of success and assist you with organising rehabilitation for your injuries.
What type of injuries do motorcyclists suffer from?
Even the safest motorcyclists in the world are statistically likely to have an accident at some point. Motorcyclists account for just 1% of total road traffic, but 19% of all road user deaths.
We have handled many motorcycle accident compensation payouts for injuries including:
- traumatic brain injuries
- road rash
- broken bones
- spinal injuries
- injuries to the lower extremities, including loss of limbs, loss of toes, severe burns, torn muscles and tissue, and deep cuts
These types of injuries can result in pain, psychological trauma, months off work and financial stress, and lost opportunities. If the accident was not your fault, you may be able to claim compensation for any psychological and physical trauma, and financial losses you have incurred. Our team is available to help you through the process and provide expert advice and robust representation.
Can a law firm help me get rehabilitation for my motorcycle injuries?
Few people realise that when you work with a personal injury solicitor to obtain compensation, they can also assist you with organising rehabilitation. Prior to commencing court proceedings, our solicitors must follow the Pre-action Protocol which sets out certain standards we are expected to observe and follow. The protocol states that all parties to the claim should consider the rehabilitation needs of the claimant as soon as possible. In doing so, the Rehabilitation Code 2015 should be followed, which directs the claimant’s solicitor and the defendant’s insurer to implement a rehabilitation plan as a priority.
At Graham Evans & Partners Solicitors, our concern is as much for your welfare as obtaining compensation for you. Therefore, we are diligent in pursuing the other side’s insurers when organising rehabilitation. Because of our professional expertise in handling motorcycle accident claims, we can refer you to the best medical consultants, and in appropriate cases, we will secure early rehabilitation treatment and therapy costs. Where appropriate we can also obtain early payment to enable you to purchase or hire a replacement vehicle.
How do claim compensation following my motorbike accident?
To obtain compensation for a motorcycle injury, you need to prove the following:
- the person who hit you owed you a duty of care,
- they breached this duty, and
- that breach resulted in you suffering harm
Most road users have a duty of care to one and other, meaning they should not act in a way that is likely to cause another road user harm. Our personal injury solicitors can quickly establish whether negligence is present in your case and arrange for medical and expert evidence to support your claim.
Why use Graham Evans & Partners Solicitors for your motorcycle injury compensation claim?
After 30 years’ experience, we understand the pain and distress a serious motorcycle accident can cause. Our team understands that you may already be under severe financial pressure as a result of your accident and therefore we offer Conditional Fee Arrangements (commonly known as No Win, No Fee). This means if your claim for compensation is unsuccessful, you will not have to pay any solicitors fees. When you meet with your solicitor, they will explain everything to you, including taking out After The Event insurance to protect you from having to pay costs if you do not achieve the result you desire.
