Have You Had a Non-Collision Accident?

 Even if there is zero contact, if another motorist’s actions on the road make it necessary for you to take evasive action, resulting in an accident, then you are entitled to make a claim for motorcycle injury compensation. This is most often called a ‘non-collision motorcycle accident’ and can happen following another road user:

  • Changing lanes or moving across your path

  • Attempting to overtake when it is not safe

  • Attempting a turn without indicating

  • Opening a vehicle door into your path

  • Cutting a corner

We have a great understanding of those who see biking as a way of life, whilst recognising the significant risks that bikers face are heightened in comparison to other road users. Our expert team are always on hand to provide advice regarding your many choices following no contact motorcycle accidents. We work in tandem with a wide variety of medical professionals, who are able to further help any rehabilitation required and assess any loss, injuries or damage you may have suffered.

Have you been forced off the road or made to take evasive action leading to injury or damage? You are entitled to make a claim.

    If the motorist involved does not provide their name and address, they have to report the accident. If they fail to adhere to their responsibility under the Road Traffic Act, they are committing an offence.

    It is crucial that you take relevant details from any witnesses in the case of the other road user(s) involved in the accident deciding to leave the scene without stopping.
