Have you been Involved in a Motorbike Accident?
Over the last few years more and more people are opting to travel by motorbike as a cheaper alternative to using the car. This has led to a significant increase in the number of motorcycle accidents and motorcycle injury claims. There are a number of possible causes of accidents involving motorcycles, including:
- Poor road conditions
- A lack of care from other motorists
- The speed that the vehicle is travelling
- A lack of experience of the rider
- The influence of drugs or alcohol
What Type of Injuries can Motorcycle Accidents Cause?
Every year there are thousands of road traffic accidents as a result of dangerous or negligent driving and motorcyclists are especially vulnerable. Motorcyclists have far less protection in a crash than those in a car or lorry, there is a much stronger chance of sustaining very serious injuries, which can lead to long-term health problems.
Injuries resulting from a motorcycle crash can be life-changing and may include:
- Broken bones
- Concussion caused by a serious head injury
- Brain damage
- Soft tissue damage
- Facial disfigurement
However, if you’ve been involved in a motorbike accident as the result of negligence from a third party, you may be entitled to make a motorbike accident claim.

- The degree and type of injury you have suffered
- Whether you have suffered a long-term injury
- Whether you need any extra care or special treatment
