Motorbike Injury Claims & Motorcycle Accident Compensation
How much Compensation for a Motorcycle Accident?
If you've been injured in a road accident, that was not your fault, whilst riding a motorbike, and want to know how much compensation you might get for making a Motorcycle Accident Compensation Claim? Then our Motorbike Accident Compensation Calculator gives guidance on the potential settlement value of your injury claim.
We specialise in helping injured Bike riders make a Motorcycle Injury Claim, and have many years' experience helping motorcyclists successfully claim the compensation they are owed. Our years of experience have not only allowed us to develop an enviable reputation for securing the maximum levels of compensation for our clients, but they have also enabled us to build an established network of healthcare professionals. We can utilise this to ensure you receive the best medical care and support to help them on their road to recovery.
Whilst ensuring your physical and mental well-being will be everyone’s first priority, once your immediate medical needs have been met, you or your family might want to start considering seeking justice. Thoughts often turn to trying to understand how compensation a Motorcycle Accident Claim could be worth.
Unfortunately, no amount of compensation will make your injuries disappear overnight, but it can help fund access to the finest medical care, treatments, and expertise to maximise your chances of making the best possible recovery. At the same time, it can help you support yourself and your family financially during the recovery period and if applicable, into the future.
While every Motorbike Claim must be individually evaluated, the following Motorcycle Accident Compensation Calculator sections of this page will provide guideline values that could be attached to the 'general damages' aspect of your compensation claim
Motorbike Accident Compensation Calculator - Claim Values
The figures outlined below offer an indication of the recommended settlement amounts for your motorcycling injury alone, without considering any other additional losses or damages caused by your accident which will likely increase the final value of a claim.
An accurate valuation of any compensation claim can only be made once all the details of the accident are known.
Figures below are published by the Judicial college as a means of providing general damages guidance to the courts, but if you have been affected by an injury caused to you while riding a motorbike, you should talk to our expert team for an individual evaluation of your circumstances.
