Diesel spill accidents
It is commonly thought (WRONGLY) that if you have an accident on a diesel spill or oil spill that you cannot claim compensation for personal injury and financial losses.
Motorcyclists injured as a result of losing control on diesel spills or oil spills are entitled to compensation if it can be shown that on the balance of probabilities (more than 50%) that the negligence of an untraced road user led to the diesel spill or oil spill being on the road. That negligence is usually either through a deliberate act such as overfilling (necking) a fuel tank or by failing to properly secure the fuel tank. We have extensive experience is winning these cases. We take over many cases where other firms have failed to obtain compensation for diesel spill claims.
Bikelawyer's senior Solicitor, Andrew Campbell, pioneered claiming compensation for diesel spill accidents, starting with a test case back in 2003 in which his client's claim successfully settled for over £1million including costs.
Bikelawyer has successfully concluded many dozens of diesel spill accident claims and has successfully appealed the compensating body when it refuses to compensate victims on numerous occasions.
Andrew Campbell successfully dealt with the first ever fatal motorcycle accident case due to a diesel spill to be submitted to the compensating government body. See the story here http://www.bikelawyer.co.uk/groundbreaking . Our News page contains the article that appeared in The Times newspaper.
