Motorbike Accident Claims
If you or someone close to you has suffered a motorbike accident that was the fault of someone else, you may be able to make a motorcycle accident claim for compensation.
We are accredited personal injury solicitors by The Law Society and have successfully represented thousands of bikers making motorbike injury claims.
Established in 1988, we are experienced motorcycle accident lawyers. We have the expertise needed to ensure that anyone involved in a motorcycle accident is properly compensated for the injuries they have suffered and are provided with the best possible care and treatment to aid their recovery.
We have significant experience in road accidents and can call on our team of experts with significant knowledge of crash dynamics, in order to assist in achieving a successful outcome for your motorbike accident claim.
“Motorcycle accidents can often be particularly tragic as they can see otherwise fit and active people suffering from devastating injuries. I have dealt with very many serious motorcycle claims in the 30 years or more I have been specialising in this area of work. Unfortunately, liability can often be disputed. However, at Smith Jones you will get the highest possible level of expertise and commitment on your side.
We were one of the first to sign up to a new industry wide code relating to dealing with rehabilitation in serious injury cases. We will try to get you back on your feet as soon as possible and if not, we aim to give you as much support and rehabilitation as you need.”
Peter Jones, Managing Partner/Director, APIL Fellow
As experienced solicitors, we, of course, understand that some motorbike accidents have tragic consequences and not all bikers will survive. If someone close to you has been the tragic victim of an motorcycle accident or has suffered serious injuries, we are here to support you when making a claim for motorbike accident compensation on their behalf. We will always act in a highly sensitive and professional manner, as we work to obtain compensation for any unexpected expenditure that you have found yourself facing.
To discuss making a motorbike accident claim, call us for free on 0800 195 95 90 and discuss your claim with one of our expert team. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and are ready to take your call.
Almost all of our motorbike accident claims are funded through a no win, no fee agreement. This means there is no financial risk to you and you will only be liable for legal costs should you be successful in your claim.
At Smith Jones, we are very active in the campaign for safer roads and implementing improved measures to reduce the number of accidents on the roads in Great Britain. One way that we do this is through the creation of our own road safety videos, which are designed to educate road users and alert them to the dangers present in everyday traffic situations. These videos are actively promoted via social media.
In any motorcycle accident claim, we will also work to ensure the victim is not only fully compensated for any injuries sustained, but also for any other unexpected expenditure.

Assisting us with your motorbike accident claim
To ensure that you recover the proper motorcycle accident compensation for how you have been affected, there are a number of ways in which you can assist us.
Firstly, ensure that you retain a copy of the official police report. This report will contain a number of important details that will help with filing a claim for compensation. In some cases, this may also include the police opinion of who was responsible for the accident.
If you are able to, you should also take down details about the accident. These should contain as much detail as possible, even things that you may initially think are insignificant.
If possible, also ensure that you have the following:
- Photographs of any injuries sustained
- Any prescriptions and receipts for unexpected expenditure relating to medical treatment and medications
- Receipts for costs that have been incurred due to the injuries you have suffered affecting your daily life. Examples of these could include costs for taxis, childcare or holidays
- Letters from your employer stating how long you have been unable to work and the income that you have lost as a result of this
- A daily diary, recording any details that are not covered by receipts. These details could include how you got to and from hospital appointments, how long you spent at the hospital, and the pain and discomfort that attending appointments causes
- A record of how you are feeling and the difficulties you face each day as a result the injuries that you have suffered
