Motorbike accident claims Solicitor
The most common causes of motorbike accidents leading to motorbike accident claims are rider speed, failure of other drivers to see a motorbike rider, potholes, missing grid covers, spillages and road debris.
Department of Transport statistics
A report, provided by the Department of Transport, found that the number of motorbike riders killed fell by 9% from 362 in 2011 to 328 in 2012. The number of users reported as seriously injured decreased by 5% to 5,000.
It also found that in almost 70% of motorbike accidents, the accident was due to the other driver failing to see the rider. This failure was most likely due to human error or road layout.
Risk of major or serious injury
Often, the injuries suffered by motorbike riders are much more serious as they have little protection mainly because the rider will be either thrown from their machine or crushed either by their motorbike or by the other vehicle involved.
Fractures, burns and head or spinal injury are just a few examples of the type of major or serious injuries suffered by motorbike riders leading to motorbike accident claims. If you are unfortunately involved in such a collision and it wasn’t your fault, we can help you to recover motorbike accident compensation to use for any purpose, whether to visit a specialist for treatment in either Doncaster or Sheffield or say a Harley Street surgeon in London.
If you have been a pillion passenger injured in a motorbike accident, you would be entitled to make a no win, no fee* motorbike accident claim either against the vehicle that hit you if they were at fault or against your own rider if they caused the accident.
As a passenger, you would be unlikely to be responsible for your accident and as such, it would be simple to prove that the accident was not your fault. If you need to make a claim against your own motorbike rider, this is likely to be covered by their insurance policy. In most cases they will not be required to pay your compensation out of their own pocket.
