Claiming for Injuries after a Motorbike Accident
Motorbike accidents can result in catastrophic injuries for riders and passengers. Due to the exposed nature of riding on the open road, with no safety belts and no roof or doors to protect you, an accident on a motorbike is likely to be far more serious than one in a car. We can help you make a compensation claim if you’ve been injured in a motorbike accident.

Motorbike accident compensation can help you get through a difficult period in your life. Whatever financial difficulties you may have thought you’d encounter, for example missing work, paying for treatment or fixing/replacing your vehicle.
Compensation claims for a motorbike accident are made against the person or persons responsible for the cause of the accident. In many cases this is another motorist, who failed to see you coming or did not give you enough space when overtaking. In other cases it can be that the road has not been properly maintained. Motorcyclists are particularly susceptible to potholes due to the problems they cause with balance when travelling at a higher speed. If you have been injured by driving over a pothole you may be able to make a claim against the council or authority responsible for the maintenance of the road.
