3 Getting to know you
We understand how a motorcycle injury can impact your life so suddenly and do everything we can to move things along qiuckly. We may suggest a face to face appointment to discuss your claim at one of our offices - we always prefer to meet our clients in person. Alternatively, we are happy to communicate over phone or email. Whatever your preference, we are happy to accommodate.
We will undertake a comprehensive investigation of your claim by requesting documents and records from the defendant. It is often necessary to review hundreds, if not thousands, of documents to properly understand the factual background to the dispute. We will then be in a position to properly advise you on the merits of your claim and whether we think you should proceed further.
We will approach the necessary third parties involved in the accident and do everything we can to avoid long, drawn-out court proceedings by suggesting and supporting alternative means of dispute resolution. If the Defendent denies reponsibility or is not willing to agree on terms outside of court, it is likely both parties will be required to settle matters in Court.
If the Defendent does not admit complete/partial responsibility for the accident or will not take part in alternative means of dispute resolution, the matter will likely to to Court. We will use our connections with industry-leading medical experts experienced in medico-legal reporting to support your claim, which can have a major impact on the final outcome.
If your case settles, we will draft a settlement agreement with the defendant and obtain your damages and costs. We may need to negotiate a payment plan with the Defendant and have systems in place to enforce any settlement agreement if the defendant does not pay on time.
