About motorcycle accidents

Motorbikes offer excitement, freedom and a practical way to nip through traffic on busy roads. The downside is that motorbike riding can be extremely risky. Accidents happen frequently due to the unstable nature of bikes. 

Motorcyclists are 28 times more likely to be involved in an accident than car drivers. When motorbike accidents do occur, motorbike riders generally sustain more serious injuries as they are often flung through the air due to the impact. These types of claims are often more complicated due to the seriousness of the injuries resulting from the accident, which means that a specialist motorcycle accident solicitor will often have to be involved. 

Motorbike accidents happen for a number of different reasons. The majority of motorbike accidents are caused by other road users. Many accidents take place at T-junctions, roundabouts and intersections. Motorists who fail to check their mirrors and blind spots when changing lanes or turning right risk colliding with vulnerable road users such as motorcyclists. Therefore, it is the responsibility of all road users to be aware of their surroundings and on the lookout for all types of vehicles.

How much injury compensation could I claim following a motorcycle accident?

  • required medical treatment and care costs
  • your prognosis and anticipated future treatment and care
  • general pain and suffering
  • loss of earnings if you have been unable to work as a result of your injuries
  • damage to your motorbike or equipment
  • any other expenses you’ve incurred such as prescription charges or travel costs

Your solicitor will consider all of these factors when calculating the value of your claim.
