FAQs

If you have been injured whilst riding your motorbike in the last three years, you may have a legitimate claim for compensation. Accidents involving collisions with other motor vehicles, poor road surfaces and faulty equipment are the most common causes of motorbike accidents and often have grounds for claiming. The most important thing you can do is get in touch for some free of charge initial advice.

The amount of time it takes for a claim to be settled may vary greatly, and depends on whether; 1) liability is disputed and 2) on the complexity of your injuries. At Withy King we’re experienced in gaining interim payments for costs and to help while you’re recovering. We can inform you of, and guide you through the likely timescale for your claim once you contact us and we’ve heard about your accident.

As well as compensation for your physical and psychological injuries, you are also entitled to the financial losses and expenses incurred as a direct result of the accident. Examples include: 1) your bicycle, clothing and kit, 2) loss of earnings, overtime or bonus, 3) private medical expenses, 4) transport costs, 5) care, support and assistance and 6) future costs. We can discuss the losses with you in more detail at the beginning of your case. It is important to try and keep a record along with your receipts and photographs.

There are a number of funding options available. In the absence of a better method of funding from your point of view, we are happy to consider representing you on a Conditional Fee Agreement (“no win, no fee” basis). This is something we can discuss in much more detail when you get in touch to talk about your accident.

If your claim was settled within the last six years and you feel you have been let down by your previous legal team, we would be happy to speak to you. Also, if you are unhappy with your current legal representation, we may be able to help as we regularly take over the conduct of claims from other firms of solicitors. We would be happy to discuss this over the phone or via email.
