What types of motorbike accidents can compensation be claimed for?

Every year, hundreds of motorcyclists make successful compensation claims for injuries resulting from:

Negligent drivers

Before turning or changing lanes, drivers are required to follow the ‘mirror, signal, maneuver’ method stated in The Highway Code. Failing to do so can endanger others, and if a collision is caused injuring a motorbike rider, then the rider could make a claim for compensation.

Potholes and poorly maintained road surfaces

If you or your property has suffered any ‘reasonably serious’ injuries or damage from a poorly maintained road surface you may be able to claim compensation if the authority responsible for maintaining the road has been negligent.

You’ll need to take photos of the pothole, the damage to your vehicle and measure the hole’s depth. If it’s depth is 40mm or more then it’s worth pursuing a claim.

Road spillages

If it can be proved that an accident was caused as by a spillage that was the result of negligence, even by an untraced road user, it is possible to make a compensation claim.

Uninsured driver and hit and run incidents

There are approximately 1 million drivers on the road without insurance, so the chances of being involved in an accident with an uninsured driver are quite high.

Even if your accident was caused by an uninsured or untraced driver, it may still be possible to pursue a claim through the Motor Insurers' Bureau (MIB).

You should speak to an experienced motorcycle accident claims solicitor immediately if you're Motorbike accident involved an uninsured driver.

Our team will provide clear, easy to understand legal advice during a free initial consultation, ensuring you are fully aware of your claim's potential before you decide whether or not to take it further.

Defective motorbikes

If the cause of a motorcycle accident can be traced back to manufacturing defects you may be able to make a compensation claim against the liable party. However, proving liability will not be easy and you will need an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you demonstrate that the machine was at fault, not the driver.

Defective helmets and protective clothing

Defective helmet design or manufacturing can make it more likely to crack and therefore offer a reduced level of protection to the rider. Furthermore, the defects could actually cause injuries to be exaggerated if the faulty helmet causes increased pressure to the head. If you believe a defective helmet failed to protect you or enhanced your injuries, you must contact a motorcycle accident claims solicitor immediately.
