Motorcycle Claims

A Motorcycle Claims Team that understands Bikers

Someone once told me, before I started riding, that there are two types of biker: one who’s fallen off and one who’s yet to fall off. It took me about a year to go from the second category to the first. – Neil John, Head of Civil Litigation.

It is also fair to say that a person who has never ridden is unaware of the joy of riding, or just how vulnerable you are to injury in the event of an accident. So why would you put your faith in a solicitor who does not understand what you are talking about? If you have been injured in an accident, and are unsure about where to go next for motorcycle claims, speak to the team at Fraser Dawbarns and see how we can help you.

Why Trust your Motorcycle Claims to A lawyer that does not get bikers? Speak to one who knows what it is like...

Neil John and Iain Grimes are the founders of the BMF Biker Legal Line which ran from 2001 to 2010. Both were management committee members until Iain left their old firm to join Fraser Dawbarns LLP in 2008. Neil attended every single meeting for the 9-year run of the line. As a regional service, Neil and Iain covered Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, and Nottinghamshire from offices in West Norfolk. Neil handled the accident and contract/consumer motorcycle claims while Iain dealt with business and conveyancing issues. Neil also served as resident Legal Expert for RiDE and Superbike magazines. 

Iain is an avid motorcyclist, having passed both Institute of Advanced Motorcyclists (IAM) and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) advanced riding qualifications. For 9 and half years he volunteered as a rider for SERV Norfolk blood bikes and is credited with covering the first ever call for SERV Norfolk way back in October 2011. During his 9 or so years with the organisation he covered on average 500-600 miles per month in all weathers. His current steed is a much-loved Honda VFR1200F which is used for commuting to work, meetings, weekend rides and the odd jaunt to Europe to explore. 

Neil was also involved with SERV from its infancy and served as a night controller, covering an average of one night a week from the line activating for well over a year until illness and surgery forced him off the road and all night shifts. After 6 long years off the road following illness, Neil is at last back on two wheels. His beloved VFR750FV, which he owned for a total of 11 years, has been replaced with a Yamaha Tracer 900 GT. Neil said “It’s a completely different bike in terms of performance and power delivery but I need to be sitting upright now. It feels great to be back out on two wheels exploring the UK and beyond.” 

Between them, Neil and Iain have almost 40 years riding experience. If you are unfortunate enough to have an accident, would you not rather talk to a solicitor who understands the law and what it is to be a biker? Call us today on 01945 461456 and ask for Neil or 01366 383171 to speak to Iain for advice and support with motorcycle claims. 

We settled for over £70,000, the claim of a client who suffered an orthopaedic injury when his motorcycle was hit by a car. He originally instructed his insurance company’s lawyers to pursue his claim but was not happy with the way it was progressing and came to Fraser Dawbarns for a second opinion.


Carla Tirrell is a lady I would return to time and time again for conveyancing matters. She is extremely efficient, prompt, polite and keeps us updated every step of the way. Fantastic work and highly recommended.
