Motorbike Accident Compensation

Updated on August 10, 2010

Filing for Motorbike Accident Compensation

Accidents that involve motorbikes will require motorcycle lawyers once the incident is taken to court. A lawyer that specializes in these types of accidents will be able to handle such cases in the strongest possible way. If you want to get what you are entitled to from a motorcycle mishap, hiring an attorney that will present your case to push for motorbike accident compensation is the best thing you can do.

Legal procedures always involve fees and if you are too concerned about legal fees, there are always other options available for you to look into. If there’s employment law no win no fee, there is also a no win no fee scheme that you can apply for motorbike accident litigation. The idea is to search for legal firms or lawyers that offer these conditions. A no win no fee is economically convenient to pursuers because they only pay their legal advisers through an agreed percentage once they win their claim. An attorney will work hard and use all possible options to win a case especially if a certain case shows all needed potential to prevail.

Determining the Value of your Case

To get what you deserve from a motorbike accident, the first thing that needs to be figured out is the value of your case and what is it worth. Some cases are settled out of court and are spared from the complexity of litigation. For cases that will be entertained by a jury, you need to have your best defense party working overtime to make sure that your case will be ruled worthy.

A jury will typically lean to reasonable facts that will determine the value of a particular case. They usually consider factors that helps establish special damages that will be included in a motorbike accident compensation claim. Special damages include compensation for present and future medical bills which may be comprised of the following;

  • Hospitalization
  • Ongoing medical care
  • Surgical procedures
  • Cosmetic surgery and scar revision
  • Physical/occupational therapy

Loss of income due to the said accident and the ability to earn income in the future is also taken into account. Some claimant may even file for job retraining or otherwise known as vocational rehabilitation. This entitles the plaintiff to be compensated for re-training costs for a new job. Other claims related claims are loss of consortium, disfigurement and disability. Pain and suffering is compensated as well.

Settlement In and Out of Court

Settlement for motorbike accident compensation may take a very long time if you don’t file at once. A trial for such cases usually takes over a year or even more just to reach a settlement. Insurance companies believe in one goal and that is to prevent you from winning a settlement and if they don’t succeed in doing that, they will try their best at minimizing the amount that you will get from your claim.

Hire the services of skilled professionals if you plan to bring your case to court. They will help you start trial quickly eliminating the long wait. An excellent lawyer that specializes in vehicular accidents and whiplash injury compensation can provide you settlement in days. You can also settle out of court by preparing a strong case that will leave your opponent with no major issues to use against you. They will have no alternative move but to agree to settlement without litigation which will save you money and time.

      motorbike accident claims 7 years ago

      nice information..If anyone get injured by motorbike accident then he must claim the compensation for his injuries. Except that atleast everyone should follow the basic safety rule "to wear a helmet" because you should claim if accident occur but try to avoid it. I want to include a Proverb for this topic that "Precaution is better than cure" . So Better a thousand times careful than once dead.
