Making a Motorcycle Accident Claim
In order to make a motorcycle accident claim your solicitor will require evidence to prove liability of the other party and support your claim. Motorcycle accidents are often caused as a result of other drivers failing to leave enough space for motorcycle users or because they do not take account of the fact that motorcycle users are less protected that other types of road users. Your solicitor will ask you questions about your accident in order to determine what kind of evidence is required to support your claim. Evidence required may include:
- Medical reports
- Statements from any witnesses to the accident
- Police reports
- Evidence of loss of earnings
- Receipts for any associated costs
