Motorcyclist lost consciousness in the accident and couldn’t remember a thing

This motorcycle accident shows how important it is to have a legal team on your side who are willing to go the extra mile on your claim.

One of our solicitors Liz was called by a gentleman asking for our help as he had been in a motorcycle accident.

Unfortunately he had been knocked unconscious in the accident, and the next he knew was waking up in hospital with a broken wrist.

All he knew was that he had gone into the back of a car. He didn’t know exactly where the accident had happened as he was not on a familiar route, and he had no idea of the registration number of the car he had it.

He had two vague memories whilst slipping in and out of consciousness which were viewing his motorcycle smashed on the road from the ambulance, and being told by the ambulance crew that there were cars parked illegally on the nearside of the road immediately after a left-hand bend. The occupants had pulled over suddenly to look at something.

He had tried to claim for his accident with his own insurance company but the solicitors he was put in touch with couldn’t take his case on without further details.

He felt he had hit a dead end. His call to changed all that for the better!

We knew that his motorbike had been damaged in the accident and would have been recovered from the scene. We had the details of the recovery company who had been instructed to recover the motorbike that day and we got in touch with them.

The recovery company were able to give us the details of the police reference number.

We contacted the police and were then able to obtain details of the car driver and their insurance company.

At last we had the details we needed! We contacted the third party insurance company for the car which had suddenly pulled up, and they accepted liability for the accident.

Our client was delighted and has recently been compensated for his injuries and is back on his new bike!

We take on all cases, no matter how difficult they may seem.
