Claiming for personal injury after a motorbike accident
Motorcycling can give you a unique sense of freedom that car drivers rarely experience. But those who choose two wheels instead of four are also far more vulnerable, not least due to the carelessness of other road users.
Although they only make up one percent of road users, motorcyclists account for one in five road deaths or serious injuries. Thankfully, motorcycle casualties have reduced by 34% since the mid-1990s, however, they are still one of the most at risk users on British roads.
The most common types of accidents involving a motorcyclist are:
- Failure to negotiate bends properly
- Collision at junctions
- Collision while overtaking
- Rider losing control of the motorcycle
Making a claim for a personal injury after a motorcycle accident can be complicated and expert advice will be needed to bring a successful case. This is because motorcyclists’ will often be found by a court to have contributed to an accident due to excessive speed or risk-taking. If the motorcyclist is found to have contributed to the accident in question, blame will be apportioned between the parties and compensation reduced.
