Motorcycle Accident Compensation Claim Process

If you have suffered injury in a motorcycle accident due to the fault of another, you may have a personal injury compensation claim. You, or a loved one, must have been injured due to the negligence of another.

The type and cause of the motorcycle injury may vary greatly depending on the circumstances of your case. Motorcycle Law Scotland will assess your prospects of success at the outset and will provide you with clear options as to how best recover the maximum monetary value for your claim for motorcycle accident compensation in the shortest possible time.

Once you've given Motorcycle Law Scotland the go-ahead to proceed with your claim, we will consider the evidence and fully investigate your case. Photographs, eyewitness accounts and police reports will be taken into consideration and we might also ask you to undergo a medical examination so we can determine the extent of any injuries or long term damage you may have sustained in the accident.


Claim Submission and Valuation Process

At the outset, we will submit a claim to the party at fault or their insurance company detailing your case against them and requesting they admit liability.

If liability is admitted, we will value your claim based on the injuries sustained, damage to your motorcycle and motorcycle equipment, any expenses incurred and loss of income. We will submit our valuation of your claim to your opponent’s insurance company. We will invite them to make an offer based on our assessment of your claim.

Offer Evaluation and Court Proceedings

When an offer is received, we will provide you with clear advice on whether to accept or reject the offer. If we feel the offer is too low, we will recommend that you raise proceedings in court, at no cost or risk to you.

If liability is disputed and we consider you have at least a 50% prospect of success, we will raise proceedings in court which, thanks to our ‘no win no fee’ policy, would be undertaken at no cost or risk to you.

What our clients say.

"Incredibly helpful company in a situation where I was otherwise unable to fight my case. Having been injured, and also becoming stressed about the whole thing, they were very reassuring! Could not have done it without them. Knowledgeable team, and very patient with me, which was needed at times. Thank goodness they were brought to my attention."
Carl Siveyer
"Cycle Law Scotland were brilliant from start to finish. Throughout the whole process of my claim, their communication was fantastic and they handled my case with skill and professionalism. At first I wasn't sure whether to take legal action after my accident because I was worried it would be too complicated, but I'm really glad I did. Cycle Law Scotland took the stress out and made the whole process very easy. I couldn't recommend them enough. Thank you!"
