How to Claim Motorbike Injury Compensation?
In Western Australia, claiming motorbike injury compensation follows the same process as motor accident claims. The key steps are:
- Report the accident to the police
- Complete an online crash report form
- Make a claim with the Insurance Commission of Western Australia (ICWA)
- Attend medical treatment
Once you lodged a claim online and made a claim with ICWA, there often a period for the insurance company to investigate the accident. The purpose of the investigation is to establish if you are liable for the accident. In Western Australia, ICWA is the third party issuer for all the motor vehicle accident injury claims.
Depending on the outcome of the investigation, ICWA can either accept your claim, reject your claim, or accept partial liability of your claim.
If your claim is rejected, or only partially accepted, it is not the end of the road. We have a team of specialist motorcycle accident lawyers in Perth who can help qualified personal injury claims to get their personal injury claims accepted or help clients to get their contributory negligence reduced.

Time Limits in motorcycle accident personal injury claim?
There several important time limits in motor vehicle accident claims. One of the most important time limits is limitation date. This is the date you must commence legal proceeding. If not, your may lose the right to claim personal injury compensation for your motor vehicle accidents.
In Western Australia, the Limitation Act 2005 states that an action for damages relating to a personal injury to a person cannot be commenced if 3 years have elapsed since the cause of action accrued (usually the date of the accident). The limitation date for motorcycle accident personal injury claims is usually 3 years from the date of injury. There may be situations that the court may agree to extend the limitation date, however, it’s rare and only applies to very specific circumstances.
If you are unsure when is the status of limitation for your motorcycle accident injury claim, contact our specialist motorcycle accident lawyers in Perth to help.

What is a No Win No Fee lawyer?

If you are suffering from a no-fault motorcycle accident and made a personal injury claim you can represent yourself in your motorcycle accident lawsuit. The benefit of choosing a good motorcycle accident Injury lawyer are:
- Experience and Expertise
When you make a claim for motorbike injury compensation, your claim will be managed on behalf of the insurer by either by a lawyer or a case officer. They are highly trained professional with years of experience in fighting to minimise the compensation associated with claims like yours. If you don’t have the same level of experience and expertise, you may be disadvantage. A good motorcycle personal injury lawyer can bring in the experience and expertise you need to fight against the insurer or insurer’s lawyers.
- Networks of Professionals
When you are claiming compensation, it is important that your claim is represented professionally. The settlement negotiation in personal injury claims is largely based on medical evidence and other related evidence to proof how much your claim is worth. The insurers and their lawyers have been fighting against your claims for years. They have developed a network of doctors, rehab providers and other allied health providers to get the outcome they want. In most cases, that is to pay you the least amount possible to quickly move on to the next claim.
Good motorcycle accident personal injury lawyers often have their own networks to assist you with your motorcycle injury claim. This means that you are less likely to be disadvantaged.
- Reduce Stress and Uncertainty
Managing a motorcycle accident personal injury claim can be stressful. This is particularly true for people who suffered from motorcycle crash injuries. We have clients who tried to manage all by themselves, then they found out it’s too stressful. When they finally come to us, there were often mistakes made. Some mistakes can be reversible, and some can’t.

- Faster and Smoother Outcome
If you are injured in a no fault motorcycle accident, the last thing you want is to have the process draw on for a long time, and waste time on things that are not necessary. A good motorcycle accident personal injury lawyer who has worked on similar cases like yours is best placed to help you to get a fair compensation for your motorcycle accident faster.
- Cost Effective
If a lawyer offers a No Win No Fee solution, it can be a cost-effective way to optimise your compensation. Not all motorcycle injury law firms offer a No Win No Fee solution, and more importantly, not all the No Win No Fee arrangements are the same. It is highly recommended that you talk to your proposed motorcycle accident personal injury lawyers about their cost agreement before signing the contract.
