Motorcycle accidents

If you have been injured as a result of a motorcycle accident that was not your fault, we can help you claim compensation.

We deal with claims for clients who have been injured whilst riding motorcycles and for clients who have been pillion passengers. 

As many as 33,000 motorcycle riders are injured on UK roads every year.  Motorcyclists are 28 times more likely to be killed or seriously injured on the road than car drivers. When motorbike accidents do occur, riders generally sustain much more serious injuries than motorists. 

The circumstances of motorcycle accidents can often be more complex than the more standard collisions involving cars.  These types of claims therefore require specialist expertise and management.

We have experience in dealing with different types of injuries suffered including:

  • Whiplash injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Fractures
  • Back injury
  • Traumatic amputation
  • Facial injuries
  • Multiple injuries
  • Head injury
  • Spinal injury
  • Fatal accidents
  • Psychological injury

We have acted for many clients who have sustained a wide range of injuries as a result of motorcycle accidents from fractures to head injuries.  As well as compensation for the injuries themselves and the pain and suffering and reduced quality of life, we have also helped clients to recover compensation for loss of earnings and travel expenses as well as other things like care and equipment costs. 

We understand that being off work even for just a few weeks can cause financial hardship.  We will work to recover an interim payment for you whenever possible.

Depending on the extent of the injuries suffered, awards range from a thousand pounds to over a million pounds.  In all cases, we understand that our clients' lives have suffered and we.will work to achieve the best possible results for you.
