2021 figures from the Department for Transport show that motorcycles were the fourth most common type of road user to be involved in a collision that resulted in a casualty, after cars, pedestrians, and cyclists. Despite this, they had the highest rate of casualties at 6,259 per billion miles compared to 320 billion miles for cars. The Department specifically states that motorcyclist’s are one of the most vulnerable road user groups.

A motorcycle accident can have significant effects – not just in terms of damaged equipment, vehicles, and gear, but lost earnings and a negative impact on your lifestyle due to your injuries. Compensation can attempt to help right the wrong and improve your quality of life.

If you have been in a motorcycling collision which you feel was either someone else’s fault or only partially your fault, contact us for a free, no-obligation chat with one of our solicitors.

Whatever the circumstances our track record in dealing with motorcycle collision compensation claims means we can deal with your case efficiently and secure you the best possible result.

What types of motorcycle accident injuries can be claimed for?

Motorcycling is an increasingly popular hobby and method of travel . Unfortunately, though, motorcyclists are among the most vulnerable of all road users. That’s because, when involved in road traffic collisions, motorcyclists have very little protection in comparison to car users and can often suffer severe long-term injuries.

Not all motorcycle injuries are serious – they may simply result in broken equipment, scrapes, or broken bones – but they can be severe. Our specialist team of motorcycle accident lawyers have extensive experience in helping injured motorcyclists who have suffered serious injuries, including:

Why should I make a motorbike injury claim?

If you or someone close to you has been injured in a motorbike accident that wasn’t their fault, making a compensation claim can help in several ways:

  • Support your recovery: However severe the damage, motorbike injury compensation can support your rehabilitation. It can pay for private surgeries, physio, psychiatric care, and other treatments. Payments can also help to financially support you and your family during your recovery, or if you are unable to work in the future.
  • Gain justice: If you choose to make a compensation claim and are successful, you will not just be awarded funds, you’ll gain justice by holding the party responsible for your injuries to account. This can help the process of emotional healing.
  • Protect others: By holding someone to account, you can get them to question the policies and behaviours that led to your motorcycle injury. This might prevent other people from being harmed in the same way in the future.
  • Recoup costs: If your motorbike accident resulted in lost equipment, such as expensive protective equipment and the motorcycle itself, then compensation can cover the cost of loss.

£1.25 million in damages for motorbike accident compensation claim

Mr A was stationary on a motorbike at traffic lights and the Defendant’s 4×4 vehicle came from behind and ran him over. Mr A sustained orthopaedic injuries in his motorbike accident and was briefly concussed. Mr A claimed that but for the motorbike accident, his career would have developed and he would have become a hedge fund manager, earning even larger sums in the City of London.

The Defendant’s solicitors paid compensation of just over £1.28 million, plus legal costs.
