How Motorcycle Accident Compensation Claim Calculators Work
Motorcycle Accident Compensation Calculators are intended to provide an estimate of the ‘General Damages’ element of your Motorbike Accident Injury Compensation Claim.
As with all personal injury compensation calculators, our calculator tool will provide an indication of the ‘General Damages’ typically awarded for injuries of a similar type and severity to yours. This tool is unable to consider the unique circumstances surrounding your individual claim and does not account for additional losses you may be entitled to claim for such as medical costs, ongoing care costs and loss of earnings. You are entitled to recoup these injury-related costs and they will form the ‘Special Damages’ element of your compensation award.
Whilst compensation calculators offer a useful insight into the General Damages you might be able to expect, they are no substitute for an initial free consultation with a fully qualified Motorbike Injury Lawyer.
So, if you or a family member have been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by somebody else, call Sheldon Davidson Solicitors and let us help you start your claim for Motorcycle accident injury compensation.
How Motorbike Accident Injury Claims & Motorcycle Accident Compensation is Calculated
Establishing the details surrounding the accident, your injuries, and the ongoing effects, both physically, psychologically, and financially is critical to ensuring you receive the appropriate levels of compensation and is not a part of the claims process that should be rushed. As experts in Motorcycle Accident Compensation Claim, Shelden Davidson Solicitors will ensure that all essential factors are considered when calculating the value of your claim.
In cases where the injured party has sustained more serious injuries, it can be prudent to afford sufficient time to allow any swelling to go down in order to be able to assess the injury fully before valuing the claim. Once the effects of your injury are fully evaluated, we are then able to seek to secure the appropriate compensation settlement value from those liable for your injury. Where appropriate interim compensation payments can also be sought and made.

How much Motorcycle Accident Compensation can you claim?
Understandably, one of the first questions most clients ask us is regarding the potential value of their Motorbike Accident Claim. Calculating the levels of compensation someone might be entitled to claim is rarely straightforward, certainly not in the initial stages of a claim. Many factors influence the value of a compensation claim such as the details of the incident, the severity and extent of your injuries and the predicted impact of your injuries on your immediate and future life. The details surrounding these factors need to be established and considered before an accurate potential settlement figure can be calculated.
Your total motorcycle accident compensation settlement will be comprised of two elements, general damages, and special damages. The general damages are designed to compensate you for the pain and suffering caused by the injury itself, whilst the special damages are intended to reimburse you for any financial losses or medical expenses incurred as a direct consequence of the accident.
As with many other types of personal injury claim, the general damages element of your compensation settlement will be calculated using the guidelines provided by the Judicial College. These guidelines recommend potential compensation values based on several different criteria, including the body part affected, the type of injury, its severity, the expected degree of recovery and the anticipated recovery time frame. Your medical reports will then be assessed against these guidelines to determine what levels of general damages you are entitled to claim.
The special damages are unique in every case and are intended to reflect the financial losses and injury-related expenses the injured party has experienced as a result of the accident and will include things such as:
- Any injury-related loss of earnings - both past and future
- Any injury-related treatment costs - past and ongoing
- Any required adaptations to your home or vehicle
- Any specialist equipment required such as hoists, stairlifts, mobility equipment or daily living aids
- Any past or anticipated prescription costs
- Additional injury-related expenses such as travel expenses to medical appointments
- Other financial losses such as damage to your motorbike and protective clothing
In the free initial assessment of your claim, we will look to build a more detailed picture of your case, allowing us to understand the nature and severity of your injuries, as well as your financial losses, thus enabling us to provide you with a more accurate idea of the potential compensation amounts.
The table below reflects those compensation levels as set out by the Judicial College guidelines (JCG), and provides insight surrounding the general damages element of your Motorcycle Accident Claim only:
