Motorcyclists who have been involved in a road traffic accident, for which somebody else was even partly responsible, are entitled to file a motorbike crash claim. A motorbike crash claim is best pursued with the help of a solicitor because there are so many long term health issues associated with a motorbike crash. Claims for compensation can be quite substantial as, according to Road Safety Authority statistics, the risk of road death or serious injury per vehicle kilometre travelled is highest for motorcyclists.
Some of these serious injuries are not always immediately apparent after a road traffic accident. A rush of adrenaline normally follows an accident of this nature and, as the adrenaline masks some neck and back injuries, it is always better to attend a hospital or doctor´s surgery as soon as possible after an accident to make sure that all your injuries and fully diagnosed and receive treatment. Furthermore, if you later decide to pursue a motorbike crash claim, evidence relating to the dates of the incident and the injuries you received will be recorded in your medical records.
A Motorbike Crash Claim for Compensation
A motorbike crash claim for compensation has to include many factors other than an amount of money to compensate for a physical injury. It would be easy to say “Aw, you broke your arm. Here´s €15.000”. But what if you cannot work for six weeks after? Six months? Six years? What if the psychological trauma you suffered as a result of your accident means that you can never ride a motorbike again? Will a motorbike crash claim settlement of €15.000 compensate for that?
