Motorbike injury compensation is due when you, or a pillion passenger on your motorbike, suffer an injury for which you were not to blame. Most commonly due to a road traffic accident, motorbike injury compensation may not only consist of financial recompense for physical injuries you have sustained. It can also relate to any loss of earnings, ongoing medical expenses or psychological trauma you may have experienced. Even when you may have partly contributed to the circumstances surrounding the accident, you should still be entitled to some element of motorbike injury compensation.
Because of the high risk of “serious” injury in a motorbike accident, your first consideration should be to seek medical advice. Not all injuries manifest themselves immediately in a motorbike accident because the body produces high quantities of adrenaline which masks pain, and this may lead to inadequate motorbike injury compensation if you accept an early settlement from the liable party´s insurance company. Therefore, it is essential that you visit a hospital or doctor´s surgery as soon as possible after a motorbike accident; not only for the sake of your health but to ensure you receive a fair award for motorbike injury compensation.
Making a Claim for Motorbike Injury Compensation
One of the factors possibly overlooked in claims for motorbike injury compensation is the age and sex of the victim. The majority of road traffic accidents involving motorbikes where a serious injury is involved happens to males with an average age of 35 (Road Safety Authority statistics 2008, 2007 and 2006) – men of working age and usually with families to support. Their future working lives will be seriously affected by a serious motorbike accident and this should be accounted for in a claim for motorbike injury compensation.
Unfortunately, many motor insurance companies have more respect for their short term profits than the long term health of victims injured by their clients, and will go to great lengths to avoid paying a fair amount of motorbike injury compensation. This is why it is always recommended that when you have suffered an accident on your motorbike, you seek counsel from a specialist personal injury claims solicitor. As experienced solicitors are familiar with this unpalatable behaviour, you can ensure that you receive a fair and adequate amount of motorbike injury compensation.
