How much compensation could I receive following a motorbike accident?

The amount of compensation you may be entitled to after a motorbike accident depends on a variety of factors, including:

  • how bad your injuries are,
  • your age,
  • how much you have lost and will lose in wages,
  • how much care you need,
  • how much you have paid out of your own pocket,

Any damage to your own motorbike or contents on the bike is generally covered by the other driver’s insurance company. In some cases, the insurer will agree to pay for some or all of the costs for your ongoing treatment, so that you’re not out of pocket while you’re waiting for the claim to be finalised.

Shine Lawyers help with all motorbike accident claims on a No Win No Fee basis, which means you will only have to pay our legal fees if and when we win your case at the end.

Depending on the nature of your motorbike accident claim, in most instances a monetary value is placed on the gap between your predicted life path before the injury, and your actual life path since the injury.
