Accidents that involve motorcycles can end up being very serious, causing injuries that can be life changing, and sometimes motorcycle accidents are fatal. The nature of the motorcycle means that there is relatively little protection for the rider and if they are hit by a vehicle they can sustain much worse injuries than a car user. Motorcycles are also relatively small so larger vehicles like lorries can pose more of a threat as the motorbike may not be seen until it’s too late. If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident and believe someone else was to blame, Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you claim compensation.
What injuries can happen in a motorcycle accident?
Motorcycle accident injuries can range from minor grazing and bruising to broken bones, head and spinal injuries, and even death. Injuries such as spinal and head injuries can lead to the patient needing long-term treatment, whereas injuries to the limbs can lead to surgery and amputation. Such injuries can be life threatening and can mean that the victim may have to drastically alter their lifestyle to cope with the changes to their body after an accident. After such a serious incident, stress and psychiatric problems can also develop as the person deals with what has happened and post-traumatic stress disorder may occur.
How can I make a claim?
You may be able to claim motorcycle accident compensation if it can be proven that the accident was a result of someone else’s negligence. You could have been involved in a crash resulting from poor driving or a driver flouting the rules of the road, or your accident could have happened because of poor road management or dangerous road surfaces. In order to pursue a claim you will need evidence to back up your argument to prove that someone else was responsible.
