    A driver or rider coming from a main road takes priority over a vehicle entering from a minor road. However, all variables of the collision will be considered. These often include false signalling, driving or riding behaviour and witness accounts.

    If a motorist involved in an accident does not provide their name and address, they must report the accident. If they fail to adhere to these responsibilities under the ‘Road Traffic Act’, they have committed an offence.

    It is vital that you take the necessary details from any witnesses if the other road user(s) involved in the accident takes it upon themselves leave the scene without stopping.

    Under most circumstances it is considered illegal to force yourself into traffic, often referred to as ‘nose poking’. The court expects people to wait at a junction until it’s safe to enter the main road.

    This includes checking to make sure a biker isn’t filtering or overtaking. In very specific circumstances the courts have found that it can be legal though that’s only if there was no other way of emerging from a junction due to restricted lines of sight.

    Frequently asked questions

    Will MACS receive a percentage of my settlement?

    No. If you are still a client of MACS when your case is settled, 100% of the agreed-upon settlement is all yours. Whilst many other solicitors tend to handle motorcycle claims on a no win-no fee basis, we do not take a percentage from your win settlement.

    I think I might be partly to blame for an accident, what should I do?

    Even if you were partly to blame for an accident, you are still entitled to make a claim on the other driver’s insurance. In examples such as this, an element of what is called “contributory negligence” could be taken away from any settlement you get. It is highly recommended that you always look to an expert to decide who is at fault in an accident.

    I have missed work due to my injuries. Will I be able to get a payment?

    If you are forced to take time off work as a result of an accident, and not being paid, we are able to ask the insurer to make a temporary payment to ease the financial situation.

    Will I need to have a medical assessment?

    We could ask you to have a medical assessment to provide evidence of your injuries, discern what treatment might be required, and run through the effects your injuries have had on yourself.

    Will I be kept up to date about the progress of my case?

    Yes. Client engagement is very important to us, and we will always keep you updated at every step along the way.

    Can MACS arrange treatment to assist with my recovery?

    Yes. We can arrange for you to have an appointment with our rehabilitation providers, where you can freely discuss your injuries.
