Motorcycle Accident Compensation Claims

Motorcycle Accident Compensation Claims

Motorcycle Accident Compensation Claims relate to any personal injuries, loss of earnings or damage to bike and kit suffered from a motorcycle accident.

This page contains information relating to handling of your motorcycle accident compensation claim and what you can expect to happen during the course of this and the level of compensation for a motorcycle accident claim.

We want to ensure your accident compensation claim is handled with care and concluded as swiftly as possible. Either call us on 0800 783 6191 or email us and you’ll speak to one of our motorcycle solicitors who’ll run through with you the circumstances of your motorcycle accident and advise you on the best way forward.

Responsibility for a motorcycle accident is rarely a clear cut matter. Even if the other driver should accept full responsibility they rarely do. Department of Transport Statistics confirming that in 2/3 of collisions between cars and motorcycles car drivers are at fault.

Even if there wasn’t another rider or driver involved in the motorcycle accident there might be a possibility that somebody has been negligent and therefore be responsible for paying compensation amounts for your motorcycle accident claim.

Some of the scenarios we commonly come across include potholes, diesel spills, mud on the road, filtering, speed, undertaking, untraced or uninsured drivers.

Why do motorcycle accidents happen?

Which other vehicles are involved in motorcycle accidents

In 2013, 47 per cent of other motor vehicles involved in accidents failed to look properly as well as 16 per cent of motorcyclists. This is commonly referred to as the ‘looked but failed to see’ problem in road safety literature or SMIDSY. This is particularly common where motorcyclists are hard to see and for motorists to fail to notice them when looking around the road. The majority of drivers (89 per cent) agreed that motorcyclists are more vulnerable in every day driving situations than any other road users.

The second most common contributory factor assigned to both motorcyclists and other vehicles was ‘failed to judge other person’s path or speed.’ In 2013, 15 per cent of motorcyclists in accidents failed to judge other person’s path or speed, in comparison to 19 per cent of other vehicles.
