Being knocked off your bike is something many motorcyclists dread, as however careful you are there is always the possibility that you will come off your motorcycle due to the negligence of another road user.

Can I claim if the driver didn’t stop?

If you don’t know who was responsible for knocking you off your bike, you can start a claim against the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB). Our solicitors regularly handle MIB claims where motorists left the scene of a road traffic accident or where the motorist was uninsured.

Can I claim if the motorist wasn’t prosecuted?

If you are knocked off your motorcycle you should call the police and report the accident, even if you don’t initially think that your injuries are serious.

Whilst you may be disappointed if the motorist who knocked you off your bike isn’t prosecuted, it doesn’t stop you from bringing a civil claim against the motorist and their insurer or against the MIB if the motorist didn’t have insurance.

Can I claim if there are no witnesses?

You can still start a claim even if there are no witnesses to you being knocked off your motorcycle.

Sometimes witnesses come forward later after an appeal is made, but it always helps to take pictures of where you and your bike ended up, the other vehicle, scuff and skid marks, and the general scenery.

How soon should I start a claim?

You can start a claim as soon as you want to do so. It is best to speak to our specialist bike lawyers about bringing a claim, whilst the accident is still relatively fresh in your mind.

What compensation will I receive?

Your compensation payment will depend on the severity of your injuries and the extent of your out-of-pocket expenses.

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

Will I have to go to Court?

Usually, we settle claims out of court by negotiation. You will be fully informed about the negotiations and we’ll only settle your claim if you agree, after you have considered our advice on whether to accept the compensation on offer.

If we can’t negotiate a settlement for you and your claim has to go to a court hearing, our specialist bike lawyers will talk you through the court process, so you know what to expect. We’ll work hard on your behalf to help you achieve the best possible compensation settlement.

For more information about the claims process, please contact our motorcycle accident claim solicitors.

How does no win, no fee work?

No win, no fee means we can pursue a compensation claim without the need for you to pay our legal fees at the start of the process, and you only pay if we secure a compensation payment for you.

For more information on how no win, no fee funding works, take a look at our guide here or give us a call to discuss your claim.
