How do you calculate compensation for a motorcycle accident?

Compensation is usually broken down into three main areas:

  • Compensation for your injury
  • Damages for losses and expenses incurred
  • Damages to cover future expenditure and losses arising from your accident

Every motorcycle accident claim is different, as no two motorcyclists ever have the exact same injuries or expenses. As much legal expertise goes into ensuring that your compensation award adequately compensates you, as in proving that the other motorist was negligent and is liable to pay you compensation.

How much compensation will you receive?

The personal injury element of your compensation award is based on the extent of your pain and suffering and whether your injury will have a long-term impact on you.

If you sustained injuries in a motorcycle accident, it is important to get expert reports that detail the extent of your injuries and your prognosis. That way, your compensation award should adequately reflect what you have been through and compensate you for any ongoing health problems that are due to your accident.

At Bikelawyer you can instruct us on a no win, no fee basis, so we can start a claim without you needing to pay upfront. You only pay if we help you secure compensation.

Whether you have suffered a broken leg or a complex spinal injury, there will be a range of compensation awards for your type of personal injury. The amount you will receive will depend on the severity of your condition.

When you first consult our team of motorcycle claim specialists, we may be able to give you some examples of the type of compensation you could expect to receive.

We also have a list of previous case and compensation examples for you to look through on the following link:-

How are expenses calculated?

Some expenses may be modest, such as hospital parking fees, travel or replacement clothing. Other items may be more substantial, like the value of your motorcycle if it was written off.

Other types of expenses may include:

  • Physiotherapy or hydrotherapy sessions to aid your recovery
  • The cost of prescriptions
  • Loss of earnings
  • Loss of future earnings
  • The cost of any further medical treatment required
  • Adaptations to your home or your vehicle
  • Care costs if you will need ongoing physical care or support

In serious cases where the expenses will be substantial, it is important to get everything costed up properly so your compensation award can help pay for all your future needs and cover any projected loss of income. That may involve getting reports from occupational therapists and other experts on what home or motor adaptations would be of benefit to you.

With any motorcycle accident claim it is important to seek expert advice as soon as possible, so you have someone on your side making sure that your compensation claim meets your needs.
