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

Motorcycle accident injuries

Bikers involved in a motorcycle accident are sadly more vulnerable to serious injuries than drivers of other motor vehicles. Common injuries that victims claim for include:

  • Burns
  • Head injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal injuries
  • Loss of limbs

It is important to seek legal advice as soon after your accident as possible. This way, the facts will be much clearer and you are more likely to have the relevant documents to hand. Our specialist motorcycle accident lawyers have vast knowledge and experience in this specific field and will be happy to guide you through the right steps to gain the compensation you deserve.

Examples of compensation amounts awarded for:

Minor brain or head injury - £1,575 - £9,100

Loss of arm - £78,300- £93,500

Severe leg injury - £68,750 - £96,800
