A look at how we can help after a motorbike accident
If you're unfortunate enough to have been involved in a motorcycle accident, the chances are that your bike is going to have taken a bit of a battering. If it's damaged to the point of being unroadworthy, or even just needs a bit of a touch up, then we can help to get you back on the road as quickly as possible.
You don't have to worry about paying a penny for the replacement bike because all the costs will be passed onto the insurance company of the person that caused the motorcycle accident, meaning that all you need to concentrate on is getting back in the saddle and out onto the road again.
When you first contact us we'll instruct an independent engineer to assess the damage to your bike. Provided it makes financial sense to repair it, the work can go ahead straightaway and your bike will be as good as new in no time at all.
However, if the engineer reckons your bike is beyond economical repair (an insurance write-off) they will put a pre-accident value on it. We'll then get in touch with the insurance company of the person who caused the accident and request a cheque for the full.
Your helmet must be replaced if it received any impact in the accident. The damage can't always be seen and so there should be no doubt about getting a new one if you have been involved in a crash. The damage to your leathers is obviously a bit easier to spot, and instead of wearing torn leathers or venturing out without proper protection and risking some nasty road burn, they'll probably need to be replaced too.
We appreciate the need for proper safety gear whilst riding, so it may be possible to arrange to get a replacement helmet and a new set of leathers delivered directly to your door. You won't be charged for these but instead the insurance company of the individual who caused the motorbike accident will foot the bill.

* A temporary replacement hire motorcycle or scooter can usually be provided within 24 hours where hire costs can be recovered from the insurance company of the person who caused the accident. If this person is untraceable or uninsured, or where there is a dispute over liability, it may not be possible to provide a replacement bike. Please do still call us though, as we will always do everything we can to help.
* If the leathers you are replacing are old or worn the insurance company may require you to make a contribution towards the cost of the new leathers. This is called betterment value and our experienced legal team will advise you on the reasonableness of any offers.
