Personal Injury>Motorcycle Claims
North Wales Personal Injury Solicitors
Motorcycles are becoming increasingly popular… the wind on your face, the sense of freedom, being at one with the road, not to mention the savings on low fuel consumption and easy parking.
As more and more people turn to motorcycles as their main form of transport, it has lead to an increase in motorcycle accidents on the road. Roads are generally dominated by cars and large vehicles. Drivers and bystanders take less care and don’t have as much awareness of bikes on the road. Unfortunately, even a careful motorcycle rider, who takes sensible precautions and adheres to all guidance including all the safety gear, cannot predict the actions of others. Sadly all too often a motorcycle collision has long lasting consequences.
What types of compensation can I claim for?
Motorcycle accidents could require hospital treatment, a lengthy recovery period, substantial periods off work, and even a permanent effect on your earning potential. For you and those around you, this can be an extremely difficult time.
Together we will claim for:
Compensation for injury sustained from the accident
Money lost for time off work for recovery
Any loss of potential earnings in the event of a permanent disability preventing you from continuing in your current line of work
Any damages for your bike and/or equipment
Expenses for rehabilitation and private medical treatment to get you back on your feet.
The next step would be to give us a call. At PJW Law we are here to support you and explain each step of the process it takes to start a claim. We feel that such matters are best talked about either face to face or ear to ear. Make an appointment or give us a call to have a chat to us about your situation. The initial consultation is always free with absolutely no financial implication for you.
What does it cost?
If you ask us to deal with a motorcycle accident claim we will discuss the fee arrangements clearly and carefully before asking you to sign our terms and conditions.
“No Win No fee” is usually the best option for clients, although other fee arrangements are available. All of which will be explained at your first free appointment.
There are no “upfront” fees, no hidden charges. If you lose the case you pay nothing at all.
