If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, once your injuries permit you to do so, you may look to make a claim for compensation. Perhaps your injuries left you unable to work or ride. Perhaps you sustained injury severe enough to be life changing. Here at Carry on Biking we are a specialist firm of solicitors. We are absolutely dedicated to representing you to ensure the recovery of the maximum amount of compensation available, if you have been involved in an accident on the road while riding your motorcycle.
We offer an outstanding quality of service and our emphasis is on the speed of a settlement. If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, you have sustained trauma, and we will work with you to reduce the stress of pursuing a claim for compensation. We deal with a range of accidents and the consequent injuries incurred, from concussions and the resulting inability to work, to extreme brain and spinal injuries. We have extensive experience in representing clients who have sustained serious and often life changing injuries in a motorcycle accident. We also deal with fatal accidents.
Range of injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident can be:
A cut, bruises, scrapes-Although these may seem minor, they can escalate further down the line, and cause longer term damage.
Dislocations, fractures, broken bones-These may mean you are unable to work, or transport yourself; limiting your independence for the duration of your recovery.
Concussion-This can have cognitive as well as physical effects. Repeated concussions have also been proven to significantly increase the risk of dementia, depression and Parkinson’s disease later in life.
More serious head injury-This can impact balance, vision and hearing.
Loss of limb or injury resulting in amputation of limb/s-In the aftermath of an accident, loss of limb, either at the scene or by amputation as a result of injury, is a traumatic and exhausting time. As well as the obvious physical implications, the psychological impact cannot be overstated. You may need emotional and psychological logical support, as well as physical support and rehabilitation therapy.
Spinal trauma resulting in paralysis. This will have implications for the future, as well as the immediate aftermath of the accident. This also has huge emotional and psychological impact; facing the adjustment to a different way of life.
Severe head injury resulting in brain damage. This can mean as well as dealing with the trauma of the injury itself, many longer term practical considerations have to be made.
Death-Sadly, motorcyclists are at increased risk of fatality in an accident. These are some of our most emotional cases, and in the event a relative has died as a result of someone else’s negligence, you will have grounds to make a claim.
