If you have been in a motorbike accident that was not your fault and your bike is un-roadworthy, Car Call UK and our partners can provide you with a like-for-like replacement motorcycle within 3 hours of starting your non-fault accident claim.
Why don’t I just claim on my insurance?
This is what is likely to happen if you claim on your own insurance.
You will have to pay the excess on your policy
Your next insurance premium will probably increase
You may not get a suitable replacement bike or be offered a car as an alternative

Who pays for my assistance then?
The insurer of the person responsible will pay – simple.
As the innocent victim of a road traffic collision you are legally entitled to the following: -
Have your vehicle restored to its pre-accident condition
A like-for-like replacement vehicle to use while yours is repaired
Recover the costs of any damaged items, lost earnings and be financially compensated for any personal injuries
We independently arrange all this for you and recover the costs of the services we provide, directly from the at-fault drivers insurer.
What is a like-for-like replacement vehicle?
It means that we provide a hire-vehicle for you that is as closely matched as possible to the make, model and type of vehicle you currently use.
So as a motorbike rider, we will source a replacement motorcycle that meets or exceeds the specification of your own. Also, if you have a full driving licence, we may be able to provide you with a replacement vehicle as there is an alternative to a motorcycle.
We always ensure that you are provided with a vehicle that suits your needs, so youso you can get on with your normal daily activities with the minimum of disruption.
Can you organise my bike repairs as well?
Of course we can.
We will find one of our approved repairers in your area or you can specify your own repairer – just let your claims advisor know as soon as you can.
We appreciate that motorcyclists in particular are particularly vulnerable to injury and to having their specialised clothing and equipment damaged in road traffic accidents.
Legal assistance is included as part of your non-fault claim.
We will arrange for a solicitor to look into all aspects of your accident claim so you can recover the cost of your damaged possessions and if you wish, pursue a compensation claim for an injury.
