A pillion passenger accident claim refers to seeking compensation for injuries sustained while riding as a passenger on a motorcycle.

These claims involve holding the responsible party accountable and seeking rightful compensation for the damages suffered.

A claim can be made if the accident occurred due to the motorbike rider’s negligence, the fault of another road user or pedestrian, or even due to road surface defects.

Injured pillion passengers may be entitled to various forms of compensation.

A compensation claim can be made to cover things such as:

  • Medical Expenses: The injured passenger may be eligible for compensation for private medical expenses, including hospitalisation, doctor consultations, and prescription medication.
  • Lost Income: The passenger may be compensated for any income lost during their recovery period or permanently if they become disabled as a result of the accident. 
  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation may be provided for the physical and emotional pain and suffering experienced by the injured passenger. 
  • Rehabilitation and Therapy: Compensation may also include the cost of rehabilitation and therapy, including physiotherapy and psychological counselling. 

It’s important to note that each case is unique, and compensation may vary based on the severity of the injury, the circumstances of the accident, and other factors.

I was out on my motorbike and got hit by a van on the wrong side of the road and the driver was drunk. Gary came to visit me at my home - 200 miles away! so he could find out what happened and help me claim compensation. Thanks to Gary I no longer have to worry about how I'm going to pay my mortgage or support my family financially while I'm getting treatment.
Highly recommend Gary

I was fortunate enough to have Gary at AClaim step in and handle my motorbike accident claim. To say that Gary's expertise and dedication impressed me would be an understatement. In just a matter of days, he achieved more progress with my case than the previous solicitor managed in 18 months.
Extremely happy with the service

AClaim came highly recommended to me by someone at the bike club. I suffered a life-changing accident after I was hit by someone running a red light at nearly 50mph. The first accident I've had in 42 years of riding!! As a result I can no longer ride. The decision to hang up my biking gear was a difficult one, but AClaim's guidance and support have made navigating this challenging time a bit easier. Thank you to Gary and the team for everything you have done.
So glad I found AClaim

I had a pretty nasty motorcycle accident, and the solicitor my insurance company assigned to my case didn't seem very interested in fighting my case. That's when I got in touch with Gary at AClaim, thanks to a recommendation. Gary provided solid advice and went above and beyond in helping me arrange private medical support and rehabilitation. He worked tirelessly and thanks to him my claim ended up being a big success. I can't sing Gary's praises enough. He genuinely cares about his clients and their well-being.
Great service
