Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Unfortunately, riding a motorbike can be dangerous as drivers of cars don’t seem to pay as much care as they should on the road. When you drive a car, you have a deadly weapon in your hands and hitting a motorbike rider or cyclist can cause serious injuries.

If you are injured in a motorbike accident, it can turn your life upside down. If you can’t work due to an injury this can be a scary time. How will you pay the bills? How do you make sure the money still comes in to help with paying for the mortgage, electricity and food for the family?

If you or any of your loved ones have sustained an injury in a motorbike accident due to the driving of a motor vehicle you can make a claim for the cost of medical treatment and loss of income.

  1. Obtain the contact details of the driver of the vehicle you consider at fault.
  2. Obtain the registration number plate of the vehicle you consider at fault.
  3. Record the contact details of any witnesses to the accident.
  4. Take photographs of the accident scene including the car you consider at fault as well as any damage to your bike (if you are able).
  5. Report the accident to the police within 28 days on 131 444 and obtain an event number (if the police do not turn up to the scene of the accident).
  6. See your doctor immediately and make sure the doctor records in his or her notes how the injury occurred and what injuries you have sustained because of the accident.

You should contact a Lawyer who is an Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury Law about recovering compensation for pain and suffering, the cost of future medical treatment and future loss of income. This will not cost you any money and you may be entitled to thousands of dollars in compensation under the Act.

There are also 2 things you should NOT do after you make a claim:

  1. DO NOT give a statement to an investigator appointed by the CTP insurer without speaking to a lawyer first.
  2. DO NOT settle your claim with the CTP insurer without consulting a lawyer as you will receive a lot less compensation than you are probably entitled to under the Act.
