Motorbike Accident Compensation

Motorbike Accident Compensation

As per law, motorbike accidents are treated just same as any other kind of accident and the injured party is entitled to get a motorbike accident compensation if he or she proves in the court that the other party was responsible for the accident. All the riders and drivers are legally required to have a third party cover of insurance. This indicates that the insurer will be responsible for picking up the bills if their client causes an injury or accident to other parties including any passengers whether or not related with the driver. If a person meets a motor bike accident with a driver who does not have an insurance cover or who does not stop after causing the accident, then he or she has the right to claim through the Bureau of Motor Insurers.

If you have been involved in a motorbike accident and want to get a compensation for your injuries, then here are some of the steps that you have to take to make your claim:

  • Make sure that you have noted the model and colour of the involved vehicle, along with its number plate.
  • Note that whether the other vehicle has also undergone any damage or not in the accident.
  • Note the name and address of the driver, if possible.
  • Do not forget to note the name and address of any eye-witnesses at the sight of the accident.
  • If possible, try to take photographs of the site of the accident.
  • Never make any admission about liabilities.
  • Try to make a plan of the scene of the accident and the location where the vehicles finished up.
  • If you are able to write down your own version of the accident, then do that as soon as possible.
  • Notify your insurer immediately after the accident.

If you got any injuries, then make sure to get it checked by a professional doctor and try to get a statement from them also.

Calculate your incidental expenses and loss of earnings which are related to the accident. These expenses may also include those made by your family and friends.

If you have all these things ready with you while making your claim, then there are greater possibilities that you will get a sufficient amount of motorbike accident compensation. Although, motorbike accidents are generally more serious than other types of accident because of more exposure you get on motorbikes, you will not get any advantage or disadvantage because you were riding on a motorbike.

Whether you were injured on the road, at work, in a public place or elswhere you are likely to have a claim to pursue provided it can be proved that the accident was the result of someone else's negligence.
