The Benefits of Working with Motorbike Accident Lawyers

Legal representation in a personal injury claim is extremely beneficial, as personal injury lawyers specialise in mediation and negotiating personal injury disputes.

Burke Mead Lawyers are some of the top personal injury lawyers in Newcastle, the Hunter region, and Central Coast, including Emma Mead – the Director of Burke Mead Lawyers and an Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury Law.

For some, the compensation process can be seamless; for others, it can be challenging. There can be a significant amount of forms, medical appointments, medical and psychological professionals, and insurance companies to deal with throughout this complex process. This can be especially true when pursuing motorcycle accident injury compensation. In making a motorbike accident claim, you will benefit from working with an experienced personal injury lawyer who can provide advice and representation to assist through every step of this process.

How to make a claim if I have been injured in a motorbike accident

In NSW, all persons injured due to a motorbike accident, regardless of fault, are eligible to lodge a claim for benefits (payments for the loss of wages and medical expenses for treatment and care).  

If you have been injured as a result of a motorbike accident and believe you may require legal representation to be appropriately compensated, you should contact Burke Mead Lawyers. To prepare for a consultation about your injury, you will need to write down as much information about the injury, how it happened, etc. This information helps our team to understand your circumstances and explain the law as it applies to you. 

Motorbike Accidents Claims FAQs

There are various kinds of injuries that could form the basis for a compensation case in NSW if they occur as a result of an accident, including minor or serious injuries. The merit of a claim is assessed on a case-by-case basis, as each case can be unique.

A motorbike accident claim is generally made against the compulsory third party (CTP) insurer (‘Greenslip’) of the vehicle deemed most at fault; however, claims can still be made where no other vehicles are involved, or you cannot identify the other vehicle that caused the accident. In these circumstances, it is highly recommended that you seek legal advice from a personal injury lawyer, such as Burke Mead Lawyers, as strict conditions apply. 

To help your personal injury lawyers understand your case you should gather as much evidence of your injury as possible, including details of the incident, the assessment of your injury, and proof of economic loss (records of time taken off work, doctors’ certificates, receipts for treatment, etc.). 

Using this information, your legal team can assess the potential outcome of your case, determine if you were to pursue compensation and determine the next steps.

Compensation for a motorbike injury may cover a range of things, including:

  • Past and future income loss.
  • Pain and suffering as a result of the injury.
  • Medical expenses and treatments.
  • Domestic assistance and/or care.

In NSW there are no “out of pocket” costs in many compensation claim cases, and many law firms operate under a ‘no win, no fee’ promise. However, we understand finances can be complicated and can discuss all financial information during the initial obligation-free consultation.
