Motorcycle accident claims

Whilst motorbike fatalities are slowly decreasing, bikers are still at a much higher risk than people in cars. Motorcyclists injured as a result of an accident that wasn’t their fault are legally entitled to make a compensation claim.

Many of these accidents occur when other road users have failed to notice a bike and have pulled out in front of them, not giving the rider enough time to stop. Even the most cautious of bikers who adhere to speed limits and wear suitable protection can find themselves involved in an accident through no fault of their own.

Motorcycle statistics

  • 5,000 bikers were seriously injured in the UK in 2012
  • 57% of car drivers are often surprised when a motorcycle ‘appears from nowhere’
  • 19% of road accident fatalities in 2012 were motorcycle riders/passengers
  • 60% of motorcycle accidents involve one or more cars
