If you have lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, MG Legal's motorcycle accident claims solicitors can assist with making a fatal accident claim, on a NO WIN NO FEE basis.

How much can I claim for a fatal motorcycle accident?
As with all complicated fatal accident claims, fatal motorcycle accident claims take many factors into account when the amount of financial compensation is being calculated.
The amount of financial compensation involved in the claim will depend on:
The victim’s age
The degree of negligence that caused the fatal motorcycle accident
The severity of the injuries that the victim suffered, leading to them passing away
The fatal motorcycle accident claim will also be broken down into a number of different compensation amounts, known as damages. The most obvious of these amounts is the general damages, for the pain and suffering of the victim in the fatal accident.
The others, known as special damages, will be calculated based on the financial losses of any dependents of the victim, both immediate and potential future losses.
