Motorbike accidents are deadliest fender-benders that leave little scope for the victims to get back to normal life. Among the lucky few who somehow survive after motorbike accidents, only a small percentage get compensated for their losses and injuries. Why the percentage is so low? This is because the motorbike victims are so devastated mentally, physically and financially in most cases that they merely think about filing motorcycle accident claims against the wrongdoer. If you have been injured badly in a recent motorcycle accident, you can use the services of the personal injury compensation claim experts. Here below is a brief guide on how to do that.
Preparing the required documents
Visit a doctor first. Get diagnosed and get the prescriptions and all the diagnosis reports. Start medicinal courses as directed by the physician and undergo surgical operation if necessary. Keep all the bills and invoices along with the reports in one place.
Take photographs of the accident scene by yourself or request someone nearby to capture photos and videos with their mobile phones or whatever gadgets are available. Personal injury solicitors ask for these evidences.
Try contacting the nearest police station to the accident place and demand a copy of the police report.
Finding a solicitor
Motorcycle accident claims experts are just another type of personal injury compensation claim experts except for the fact that they only deal with motorbike accidents and nothing else. Therefore, finding personal injury compensation claim legal experts might not be a tough job, but finding an expert who specializes in motorbike accident compensation claim cases might be a bit tricky. You should look for solicitors who are duly authorized and licensed to handle your case. Here below are some parameters for assessing a solicitor’s serviceability.
- The solicitor must be a personal injury compensation claim specialist having years of experience in handling motorcycle accident compensation claim cases. You can also appoint a road traffic accident compensation claim specialist if a bike accident claim lawyer is not available.
- The solicitor must be licensed by the Law Society.
- The solicitor must be authorized by the SRA (Solicitors Regulation Authority)
