Island Knowledge - National Expertise

Motorcycle Accident Solicitors on the IoW

More often than not, accidents are not the motorcyclist’s fault – it is estimated that in 2 out of 3 accidents a car is to blame.

When a motorcyclist is involved in an accident, the potential for serious injury is very real. Speed and a lack of all-round protection lays the motorcyclist open to injuries that can be life-changing, even fatal.

The Island’s motorcycle claims experts

The Glanvilles Damant Personal Injury Team has helped hundreds of injured bikers successfully claim compensation. We know only too well how other party’s insurers try to pin the blame on the “reckless” motorcyclist. We’re here to fight our motorcyclist clients’ cause and gain maximum compensation for their injuries and any other losses created by the accident.

On taking on your claim, our first move will be to thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your accident. We will: 

  • Interview witnesses 
  • Visit the accident site
  • Take photographs
  • Make all necessary calculations with regard to reaction times and braking distances

Everything that is crucial in making a success of your claim.

Claims regarding damaged road surfaces are another area of our expertise. So too is making claims against the Motor Insurers' Bureau (MIB) when the other party is uninsured or untraceable.

If you have a motorcycle accident, our first concern is to gain the absolute maximum compensation for you and help with all the complex legal, medical and financial matters that may be involved. If the accident was serious, you may well need interim payments to relieve financial hardship or find medical support. Glanvilles Damant will help organise these payments for you.

If you do receive substantial compensation for your accident, Glanvilles Damant can assist with any legal needs this may entail. We can help you set up a trust to protect you from DWP benefit deductions. Because of your injuries, you may need to move or make alterations to your home. Again, Glanvilles Damant can advise of these matters and on a whole range of other issues related to your claim.

Our experienced legal team can talk through all of the above in more detail - Contact Us today to discuss how we can help.
