WARNING FOR BIKERS - PLEASE READ AND NOTE
In November 2021, the insurer MCE went into administration. Many of you may well have been caught up with that. By April 2022, 4 months after MCE Insurance Company Ltd fell into administration cancelling policies, it was reported by MCN that riders were starting to receive partial refunds from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).
Yesterday, it came as a surprise to us when one of our clients sent us this information received from MCE promoting a new service for injured motorcyclists called Biker Rescue.
At Motorcycle Law Scotland, we’re strongly of the view that the instruction of a solicitor to pursue any claim for damages for a non-fault or part-fault accident is a choice that YOU make.
Insurance companies have no place sending you to their panel solicitors. It’s strange that MCE don’t tell us who their industry leading partners are.
All motorcyclists who come across BIKER RESCUE should be very wary indeed.
NEVER allow an insurer to appoint a panel solicitor. If you do, IT’S YOU WHO may well be in need of rescue!
