Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists are one of the more vulnerable groups of road users. As a motorcyclist, you can travel at the same speed as cars but also have the ability to manoeuvre in and out of traffic. However, you can be easily obscured in a vehicle’s blind spot or windscreen pillars meaning that drivers can be left with limited or even no time to react and prevent a collision. You are also at risk from accidents due to a poor road surface or potholes.

If you have been involved in an accident on your motorbike that was not your fault, you may have grounds for a claim for compensation for any injuries or losses you suffered. You can find out more on the possible impact of a motorbike incident below and our Personal Injury team can advise you on your options and help you through the claims process.   

“Mr C was injured when he was struck by car pulling out from a side road onto the main road on which Mr C was travelling on his motorcycle. He was knocked from his bike and suffered fractures to his clavicle, scapula and ribs as well as a chest injury which required plating and significant psychological injury affecting his ability to do his senior management level job. Mr C was awarded £150,000.”

Impact of motorbike incidents

If you were injured in a motorbike accident you may need treatment for your injuries and have to cope with resulting financial losses.

If you are struck by a car or other vehicle whilst on your motorcycle or have an accident as a result of a pothole in the road, you may well suffer injuries such as broken bones, whiplash, a head injury or other physical or psychological injuries.

You may require treatment such as physiotherapy or if you are struggling psychologically with the impact of the accident, you may require treatment such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or EMDR. We can assist with making sure you are seen by appropriately qualified medical professionals who can give guidance on the best treatment to aid your recovery.

Following your accident, you may need to take time off work, replace damaged property such as bike leathers and helmets, pay for treatment or need assistance with activities of daily living. All of this can have a major financial impact on you. We can help you claim compensation to cover these losses.
