No Win No Fee Motorbike accident claims. 

Along with pedestrians, cyclists, and those on horseback, motorcyclists are classed as vulnerable road users. 
 
This means that if you are a motorcyclist, and have sustained a personal injury as a result of the negligence of another road user, you could be entitled to a higher amount of financial compensation. MG Legal specialise in motorbike accident claims, on a No Win No Fee basis, with no financial risk to you. Contact us today, for a no nonsense chat about how we can help you. 

What does it mean to be involved in a road traffic accident while stationary? 

Whether you are stopped at traffic lights, waiting to turn at a junction, or simply parked up at the side of the highway, road traffic accidents can occur at any time. Drivers can fail to focus on the road ahead properly, and can even fail to see an upcoming stationary vehicle. This is particularly the case for motorcyclists, as they are much smaller and more discreet on the roads than, say, a large car or a van. 
 
Being hit by another vehicle while stationary can be particularly traumatic, as for many drivers and motorcyclists alike it can catch them completely off-guard. It can also be even more frustrating to many victims than being involved in a standard collision, as it has happened to them at a time when they believe that they were doing nothing wrong, and were not even in motion at the time.  
 
When a vehicle is stationary and is not moving, the injuries obtained by any impact can be worse for the driver and passenger than if the car or motorcycle had been moving at the time of the collision, as the stationary vehicle will absorb the entirity of the impact. Over the years, our expert team of personal injury solicitors have represented, and won compensation on behalf of, numeorus motorcyclists who have been hit while stationary and have obtained injuries as a result of the road traffic accident.  

How do I make a personal injury claim for a road traffic accident that occured while I was stationary? 

Making a personal injury claim for a motorcycle road traffic accident that has occured while the rider was stationary can be confusing. It is not always easy to tell who was at fault, and the unique circumstances of the event can leave victims in complete shock. 
 
However, if you have been injured while sat stationary on a motorcycle, and you suffered injuries as a result, then you could be entitled to significant financial compensation. 
 
Many people who find themselves in this situation do not know where to start with making their claim, and we do not blame them, the process can be confusing and difficult to navigate alone. If you are looking to get started with a personal injury claim for your motorcycle accident, then get in touch with our expert personal injury solicitors specialising in road traffic accidents today for a no-obligation discussion of your potential claim, and how best to get started with it. 

How much is my motorcycle road traffic accident worth? 

As motorcycle riders have limited protection when on their motorbikes, and are not strapped in or enclosed within their vehicle, the kinds of injuries that they can sustain can vary hugely. Motorcycle accident victims can suffer from arm injuries, leg injuries, knee injuries, back injuries, whiplash injuries, and many more. 
 
Every single motorcycle road traffic accident is unique, and it is therefore impossible to accurately predict the amount of financial compensation that each motorcycle accident claim could see won. Still, our expert personal injury solicitors who specialise in road traffic accidents have used the Judicial College’s most up to date guidelines to create the following table of how much your motorcycle accident claim could be worth, depending on your injuries. 
 
It is key to remember that these monetary value estimations cover the injury alone, and do not take into account any other values involved that come under special damages. See a full overview of both general and special damages, here. 
Injury: 
Estimated finanicial compensation: 
Severe arm injuries- injuries which fall short of amputation but still leave the injured person little better off than if the arm had been amputated. 
£90,250 to £122,860 
Less severe injuries- where there are significant disabilities involved but a substantial degree of recovery has taken place or is expected to do so. 
£18,020 to £36,770 
Severe leg injury- in the most severe cases short of amputation. 
£90,320 to £127,530 
Serious leg injuries- serious compound or comminuted fractures or inuries to joints and ligaments leading to instability, prolonged treatment, exessive scarring, and other problems. 
£36,790 to £51,460 
Less serious less injuries- fractures with an incomplete recovery time or serious tissue damage. 
£16,860 to £26,050 
Severe knee injury- where a leg fracture has extended into the knee joint causing a constant, permanent pain, limiting movement, impairing agility, and leaving the person prone to osteoarthritis and at an increased risk of arthroplasty. 
£48,920 to £65,440 
Moderate knee injury- involving a dislocation, or a torn cartilage, resulting in minor instability, weakness, wasting, and potentially other mild future disabilities. 
£13,920 to £24,580 

Is there a time limit for making my motorcycle accident personal injury claim? 

The 1980 Limitation Act is a legislation that governs the amount of time that people have to pursue personal injury claims in England and Wales. It states that people have three years from the date of the accident, or the date at which they became aware of the injuries that they sustained (if this date is later), to file their claim.  
 
This does not mean that you have three years to get in touch with a personal injury solicitor about your claim, but instead that by this date the claim must be complete and ready to pursue.
