yes, it’s certainly worth claiming, but it can drag on and on.Posted 8 years ago
I was knocked off my (motor)bike ten years ago, sustaining a pelvis fractured in five places, four broken ribs, and just to add to the pleasure,a heart attack at the scene of the accident due to trauma – woohoo!
Anyway, it took about four years to settle my claim, and even though I recieved a six figure sum, there are some things that the b******s neglect to inform you of – mainly that there’s no such thing as ‘you will recieve 100% of the claim’ – this is absolute cock, solicitors dont work for free. My advice would be to claim, but try and use a reputable solicitor and ignore the tossbags who advertise on daytime telly – particularly that red faced jowly bloke who wants to know ‘have you been injured at work?’- he looks like he’d go through your missus’s knicker drawer as soon as your back was turned.

Depends who you use. You do with the company I link to – they claim their fees in addition to your compensation from the other side (which is the way it’s supposed to work).Posted 8 years agoprojectMember

Have a look at the site, and do ring them and do claim its the only way some motorists are going to learn, also i dont work for them or have even been in contact with them , theyre just proffesional, according to people who have used them, and hopefully ill never need there proffesional services.

on the bikeline site they say that in the case of hit and run compensation comes from the MIB.
The MIB pay out set costs which Bikeline warn will not cover their expenses and consequently you will not receive the full amount of compensation.
The issue really is that there is no “other side”
Fair enough – hadn’t realised that was the case for a MIB case, though I guess it makes sense. They are at least up front, and it’s better than nothing. Though one thing to consider is whether you have legal cover on your home insurance which will pay for Bikeline, so you then get full compo (I do, or did when I last put a claim in).
Is there no chance at all of (the police?) tracing the driver?
Anyway, good luck and get well soon.Posted 8 years ago
