Motorbike / Motorcycle Accident Compensation
Attention Motorcycle riders!
Injured in a motorcycle accident? Claim compensation and keep it all!
We specialise in accidents involving motorcycles and have dedicated teams to deal with your claim. The motorcycle rider is especially vulnerable on today’s roads and despite great improvements in motorcycle technology and design and safety gear, injuries following a collision are, unfortunately, almost unavoidable.
Statistics have shown that motorcyclists are approximately 28 times more likely to be killed or seriously injured on the roads in Great Britain than car drivers.
Many motorbike accidents occur through the mistake (negligence) of car drivers, who just do not seem to have bikers in their thoughts at all. How many times have we heard “sorry mate, I didn’t see you” following an accident where a car has manoeuvred into the path of an oncoming motorcycle. The problem is that there is often a presumption that the biker was the negligent one (he just came from nowhere!) and that he was speeding.
We have an excellent knowledge of all the appropriate legal cases surrounding motorcycle accidents which allow us to rebut this presumption. We have connections with accident reconstruction experts who can calculate distance and velocity to help us get to the truth of the matter.
In motorcycle injury claims, more so than any other traffic accident claim, expert legal advice is essential.
Because injuries can be severe it is important that the Lawyers acting on your behalf are experienced and skilled in assessing the right amount of damages for your personal injury.
Can I claim for damage to my Motorcycle equipment?
Protective motorbike rider’s equipment is not cheap and nor are motorbike helmets. Remember being asked that trick question by your examiner “What would you do if you dropped your motorbike helmet?” And you had to say you would walk home because even a small impact on a crash helmet can cause damage.
You can claim for any damage to your helmet and protective clothing and get the replacement cost.
