Motorcycle accidents

Whether riding is a part of your daily commute or saved for sunnier days, we understand that opting for two wheels over four is a lifestyle choice. The unfortunate downside is that motorcyclists are less protected and more exposed than other road users, meaning collisions are more likely to result in serious injury.

What are the most common causes of motorcycle accidents?

A common assumption following a motorbike crash is that the rider is at fault, but statistically, a significant portion is caused by drivers who fail to judge the motorcyclist's speed, or fail to look properly - particularly at junctions. Yet it is usually the exposed rider who suffers extreme and potentially life-changing injuries such as spinal injury, head injury and amputation.

Why make a claim after a motorbike accident?

Lives can be changed in seconds, but it takes time, money and ongoing support to rebuild them after a traumatic accident. Though no amount of money can make up for the damages occurring from a severe motorcycle injury, appropriate compensation may be necessary for you and your family. We will also arrange and support rehabilitation, helping you get your life back on track.

What is the claims process for a road traffic accident?

Claims for motorcycle accident compensation can be made up to three years after the injury occurred. During the initial stages of making a road traffic accident claim, we will provide a free consultation to discuss the circumstances. Following this, we will investigate the extent of the injury and resulting losses.
