What We Do

Motorcycle Accident Claims Scotland is a team of senior solicitors with decades of combined experience in motorcycle law.

Accidents can have devastating consequences for you and those close to you so our aim is to lessen the burden by providing bikers with specialist practical support and legal advice following any type of accident.

First of all, our team can advise you on what your prospects are following an accident. We work closely with a range of medical experts who can assist with your rehabilitation and assess the loss, injuries and damage you have suffered.

To recover your losses we can pursue a claim on your behalf with the third party insurer.

If you remain a client of MACS and we settle your case, you will receive 100% of the agreed settlement. Unlike other solicitors which handle motorcycle claims on a no win-no fee basis, we do not deduct a percentage from your settlement if you win.

Get in touch with MACS today to find out more.
