Bike Injury

Motorbikes are one vehicle that is quite susceptible to accidents and severe injuries. Not only because there is minimal protection covers over the bikes that accidents and injuries occur but also because they zoom in incredible speed as well. This speed factor is basically what makes people go gaga over bikes than cars. This is quite unfortunate though that the injuries sustained by bikers in a bike injury can be of intensive nature and may also prove to be fatal in several cases.

While some of the bikers are really lucky to escape from horrendous effects of the bike injuries by just small contusions, scraps and bruises, while others end up bearing very serious injuries. There is always a possibility of entering in to a state of great shock after the accident occurs. At times the bikers keep unaware of the seriousness of the matter until injuries and related problems begin to appear overtly and the pain grows. Severe head injuries and spinal problems may also creep in due to the accident if the biker is thrown off the bike by some larger vehicle.

Bike injuries may be caused by a lot of reasons like the carelessness of the biker, uncontrolled speed, poor visibility of the biker and mechanical problems in the bike due to poor servicing. A bike injury may also occur because of other people’s insouciance or because of faulty authorities of road maintenance who neglect their duty of clearing oil, mud and ice spilled over roads, closing potholes and making smooth roads. If the biker meets an accident not because of his own fault but because of the fault of others, he can claim for a personal injury compensation claim.

The biker is rightly entitled to seek compensation for the bike accident as because of the accident he may be rendered bed ridden and thus may lose his job temporarily or permanently. Also, apart from loss of his earnings, physical pain and mental trauma, he will also have to suffer paying huge medical bills that are spent on his treatment. To add to all of this, his bike that undergoes damages may also have to be repaired or replaced completely. As he was not responsible for the accident, he deserves to be compensated for the losses he has incurred. He can avail the help of a good personal injury lawyer to file his suit against the accused but this action needs to take place in time or else after three years his claim may be considered invalid.

Public Liability
Pedestrian Fall from Bicycle
Miss H was knocked off her bicycle when her front tyre struck a loose paving stone jutting into the road. She sustained a head injury causing severe short term memory loss and mood swings. After 2 years her original Solicitors withdrew from the case as they believed her claim had less than a 50% chance of succeeding. Miss H contacted Cooks who agreed to represent her on a No win No fee basis.

Within 18 months the matter was resolved and Miss H received a settlement cheque of £300,000.00. She told us
"Thank you Cooks for believing in me and my claim. My Solicitor was always available to me and happy to explain each step of the process. The only surprise was how much you managed to obtain for me without the need to go to trial. I will tell all my friends about your great service."
Miss H from London
