Motorcycling can give you a unique sense of freedom that car drivers rarely experience. But those who choose two wheels instead of four are also far more vulnerable, not least due to the carelessness of other road users.
Although they only make up one percent of road users, motorcyclists account for one in five road deaths or serious injuries.
Thankfully, motorcycle casualties have reduced by 34% since the mid-1990s, however, they are still one of the most at risk users on British roads.
The most common types of accidents involving a motorcyclist are:
Failure to negotiate bends properly
Collision at junctions
Collision while overtaking
Rider losing control of the motorcycle
Making a claim for a personal injury after a motorcycle accident can be complicated and expert advice will be needed to bring a successful case. This is because motorcyclists’ will often be found by a court to have contributed to an accident due to excessive speed or risk-taking. If the motorcyclist is found to have contributed to the accident in question, blame will be apportioned between the parties and compensation reduced.
How We Work
By taking the time to listen to your version of events, gathering evidence from the crash site and witnesses and presenting your case in a professional, well-prepared and persuasive manner, our team will give you the best chance of successfully claiming the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
NO WIN, NO FEE
With no win no fee, there aren’t any upfront charges or hidden costs. If you do win your case, we will charge you a ‘success fee’ as a percentage of the compensation you receive, this will then be capped at a maximum of 25% – and in many cases this is significantly less than this so you will receive the majority yourself. This fee will be agreed between you and your solicitor before we take on your case.
