Supporting you and your family after a motorbike crash

As bikers can be more vulnerable on the road, any injuries sustained in a crash can often require extensive treatment, rehabilitation and ongoing support. We're here to help you access all the support you need, whilst maximising your compensation. We also have rehabilitation and support coordinators working alongside your legal team who are clinically trained, helping you to access the full wraparound support you and your family need.

Our partners

Working with organisations to support people after road crashes

We work closely with RoadPeace, and the Road Victims Trust to support people who have been bereaved or seriously injured in road crashes. 

As part of our work with RoadPeace in the West Midlands, we created an anthology of stories, poems and drawings of people impacted by road death. The anthology aims to support those who find themselves bereaved after road death, as well as a call for change and a call for society to stop accepting these needless deaths.

Our Process

Guiding people through the legal process

You may be worried about what's involved in claiming compensation and want to focus on your recovery. But making a claim can help you to access the specialist rehabilitation and treatment you need.

Free meeting without the need to go ahead with a claim
We’ll come to see you face to face wherever you feel comfortable to find out more about you and your family, what you’re worried about and how we can start helping you. We’ll also talk to you about how your case can be funded, so you’ll have peace of mind and reassurance that making a claim won’t cost you money, even if your claim isn’t successful. We don’t believe in taking money off injured people like some other firms, so there are no hidden charges
Introduce our Rehabilitation and Support Team
Once we understand what’s worrying you, our Rehabilitation and Support Team will be in touch to understand more about your needs and to help you access the urgent support you need. The team include health and social care professionals who can help to plug any gaps in your care. They’re on hand to help with discharge planning and making sure you have everything you need to go home safely. We’ve also got an emergency fund to help pay for any initial care, aids and equipment you might need.
Contact the other side to get the ball rolling
We’ll send a letter of claim to the defendant insurers—this is basically a letter telling them what’s happened and why we think they’re responsible. It’s important we make contact with the defendant insurers as soon as possible to make sure your claim can move forward without any delays. They’re allowed time to look into what’s happened and tell us if they admit they’re to blame, they think they’re partly to blame, or they deny blame all together. Sometimes, there’s no response at all. However, while they’re doing this, we’ll be working with them to try and get funding for private rehabilitation to help your recovery from the very beginning of the claim.
Asking for interim payments
You might be worried about the impact your injuries have had on you and money worries if you can’t work. While steps one to three are ongoing, we’ll also be asking the defendant insurers for interim payments. These are payments that you get as soon as possible before your case has settled that can help pay for any suggested treatment, help with any financial worries you might have about paying your rent or mortgages, or paying bills, and to put in place a full treating and care team, helping to make sure you achieve your best possible outcome.
Gathering evidence
Next, we’ll start gathering the evidence. This could be to help prove that the other person involved was to blame (known as liability) and medical evidence to show what injuries you have, that these injuries were caused by the incident and how they’ve affected your life (known as causation and quantum). Liability evidence could be CCTV or police reports, and medical evidence includes your hospital or GP records, as well as reports from medical experts who specialise in your injuries.
Getting you the rehabilitation you need
As we carry on gathering all the information to build your case, we’ll be working alongside professionals who are specialists in your injuries to look at how we can support you and get you the best recovery possible. We do this by organising the highest quality rehabilitation and treatment for your specific needs. We’ll keep working with the defendant insurers to get all this funded for you while your claim is still ongoing so that you don’t have to wait.
Working out how much your claim is worth
After gathering all the evidence, we’ll also calculate how much your claim should be worth. We’ll look at what losses you’ve had since your injuries including from not being able to work, as well as any losses you’ll experience in the future. We’ll also think about all the things you’ll need now and in time to come, including things like care packages, treatment, aids, equipment, changing your home so it works better for you, and any number of others things that might be important to you (for example getting back to a hobby you love or sourcing an adapted holiday home for you to enjoy time with your family).
Fighting for your best possible outcome
Throughout your whole case we’ll be negotiating with the defendants—whether it’s to get them to accept they’re to blame, agree to release some interim payments to help with your recovery or discussing how much compensation you should get. We’ll always fight for your best possible outcomes.
Lifelong support
Even after your case has settled, we’re still here for you. Our specialist Court of Protection team can help you if your family member can’t manage their own affairs anymore, or we can set up a Personal Injury Trust to make sure you can still claim the benefits you need. We’re also here to help with financial advice to make sure your compensation lasts you for the rest of your life.

See all FAQ's

Can I make a no win no fee claim?

Yes, all our motorbike compensation claims are taken on a no win no fee basis. This means that you do not need to worry about the financial cost of making a claim. A no win no fee agreement means that the insurance company of the person responsible for the collision will pay your compensation and legal fees at the end of the case. If your case isn’t successful, you do not have to pay these fees. Your solicitor will talk you through how no win no fee cases work and answer any questions you may have.

Can I make a claim if I was fully responsible for the collision?

If the collision was completely your fault, you will not be able to make a claim for personal injury.

Contact us for advice: 0800 612 8196

Do I have to use the solicitors my insurers recommend?

If your insurance company have recommended a solicitor to you, you are under no obligation to continue with a claim with them. After a motorbike accident, people can often have serious, life-changing injuries, so it’s important that you work with a solicitor who has experience in supporting people with these needs. It is important you work with a solicitor with the expertise to help you with your specific collision and injuries and who you trust to support you and your family. You should have an open discussion with your solicitor before deciding to go ahead and ask them any questions you may have about the way they work, the services they provide and how they will help you.

Contact us for advice: 0800 612 8196

What can I claim for?

Personal injury claims are made up of many different elements. These can include but are not limited to:

  • The pain and suffering you have experienced because of your injuries
  • Any loss of earnings (both now and in the future) as a result of being unable to work or continue to do the job you were doing before your injuries
  • Adaptations to your home or funding for a new home that is suitable to your needs
  • Private treatment, rehabilitation and surgery to improve your recovery and outcomes
  • Purchase of specialist aids and equipment to help with your mobility and independence
  • Funding for an adapted vehicle to help you to get around
  • Any expenses you have incurred as a result of your injuries, such as travel expenses to attend medical appointments and treatment
Your solicitor will be able to give you an estimate about the amount of damages you might expect to receive and will gather all the evidence to ensure you receive the maximum amount of compensation available.

Contact us for advice: 0800 612 8196

Can I claim if I was partially responsible for the collision?

Yes, it is still possible to claim even if you think the collision was partly your fault. In cases like this, each driver will be apportioned an amount of blame as a percentage. If you were found to be 20% responsible for the accident, then any damages you are awarded would be reduced by this amount. This is called contributory negligence.

Contact us for advice: 0800 612 8196

How long do I have to make a claim?

You have three years from the date of your motorbike collision to bring a claim. If you are under 18-years old, you have three years from the date of your 18th birthday. If the person making a claim has lost capacity to manage their affairs as a result of their injuries, this time limit may be extended. Although you have three years to make a claim, it’s always best to get legal advice as soon as possible after a collision. Your solicitor will be able to help and support you with any concerns you may have straightaway, whilst also proceeding with your claim.

How long does a motorbike claim take?

Motorbike claims can take some time to come to a conclusion. This is because there are lots of elements that need to be considered when claiming compensation. You will need to see medical experts about your injuries, and your claim will not be able to be settled until we know the prognosis from your injuries. Our solicitors work with fewer clients than is typical in the legal industry, which means they can work proactively and intensely on your case, resulting in full compensation without any unnecessary delays.

Contact us for advice: 0800 612 8196

Do I have to pay legal fees?

If you proceed with a claim under a no win no fee agreement, you will not have to pay legal fees. When your claim has settled, we will claim our legal fees directly from the defendant insurers and not from you. You do not have to pay these fees if the claim is unsuccessful.

Contact us for advice: 0800 612 8196

Can I change solicitors if I’m not happy with them?

If you have an ongoing claim with another firm and you are unhappy with the support you are receiving or the way your claim is being handled, you can contact us about your concerns.

We can review your claim free of charge and help to resolve any issues you may be facing with your current solicitor. If you are still not happy with the service you are receiving, we can arrange to transfer your case to CFG. It is free to transfer your case and we will contact your other solicitor directly, so you do not have to get involved in the transfer process.

We have managed many motorbike collision claims which have been transferred to us and regularly take over claims started by other firms.
