Motorcycle accident claims

Motorbike accident compensation

Every year in the UK there are more than 28,000 casualties following motorbike accidents. In many cases the injuries are serious and there can be no doubt that motorbike users are vulnerable on Britain’s roads.

This section of our site deals with motoryclist incidents. If you are a pedal cyclist injured in an accident, please visit our cycle accident pages.

The majority of the motorbike accident compensation claims that we deal with involve other vehicles and usually its a question of the car driver simply not seeing the motorbike. There are however many incidents involving poorly marked or defective road-works, potholes and spillages that all pose dangers for motorbike riders. Such incidents may well give rise to a claim being made against the negligent party.

If you are a motorcyclist and have been involved in a road accident – or a pillion rider you may be entitled to a personal injury compensation claim. Pillion riders / passengers are owed a duty of care by the person controlling the bike and if you feel you have been injured as a result of another’s negligence – you may be able to claim.

If you want an independent view on your compensation prospects please telephone our accident claim line today. Why not make an motorbike accident compensation enquiry today? The police have launched an initiative aimed at re-educating riders and other road users in the UK.

The Bikesafe initiative is a nationwide plan of action to reduce the number of motorcycle accident casualties by promoting safer riding.   The official statistics support the view that riding a motorbike in the UK is one of the more dangerous ways to travel. In 2005, the number of casualties among motorcycle users fell by 3% compared with 2004 and the number of deaths fell by 3% to 569. Serious injuries also fell by 2%. The overall casualty rate per hundred million vehicle kilometres fell by 8%, Accident Statistics for 2005
