Accidents that involve motorbikes do unfortunately lead to fatalities, leaving the family of the motorcyclist to make a claim for loss of life as a dependency claim.
In these very sensitive cases the dependants of the deceased will need to make the claim for compensation rather than the rider themselves.

Any claim of this nature is dealt with in the strictest confidence with a dedicated line of contact to the solicitor dealing with the case who will guide you through the process from start to finish.
