There are on average 5,000 serious motorcycle accidents per year on UK roads, and a larger number of less serious accidents. Statistics suggest that motorcyclists are around 38 times more likely to be killed than those driving a car.
If you have been injured in a motorbike accident that was not your fault, whether you were the rider or passenger, our motorbike accident claims solicitors can help you claim for compensation.
Riding a motorbike on public roads alongside larger vehicles puts you at a heightened risk of a motorbike accident, so it pays to be prepared. Tragically, around 330 riders are sadly killed in motorbike accidents in the UK each year. When motorbike accidents occur, riders generally sustain much more serious injuries than a car driver would in similar circumstances, no matter how careful or skilled a motorcyclist may be.
The circumstances surrounding motorbike accidents can often be more complex than those involving 4 wheeled vehicles. Such accidents warrant specialist expertise and management.
Our motorbike accident claims solicitors specialise in motorcycle claims and have experience in dealing with all types of injuries including:
- Head / brain injury
- Spinal injury
- Fatal accidents and inquests
- Facial Injures
- Psychological injuries
- Ligament damage
- Soft tissue damage
