    Is there a record of motorcycle injury statistics?


    Most people know by now that people riding motorcycles are more likely to suffer injuries on the roads, and also much more likely to be involved in fatal accidents too. However, if you are looking for motorcycle injury statistics for the UK, the best place to look is on the Gov.uk website, as the Department for Transport provides many statistics about road accidents of different kinds.

    What do motorcycle injury statistics tell us?

    As stated above, it is a known fact that motorcyclists are far more at risk of serious injuries and death than other road users are. Although motorcyclists only comprise 1% of the total overall traffic on UK roads, they also account for about 20% of deaths and serious injuries. This is a huge discrepancy and really goes to show just how at risk motorcyclists are. However, most motorcyclists are very careful, law-abiding road users, so what can be contributing to this very high percentage of injuries and fatalities?

    One of the reasons motorcyclists are more likely to be hurt is that other road users are not driving as safely as they could be. Motorbikes are smaller vehicles, and therefore they are harder to spot at junctions and roundabouts for example, especially when there is a lot of traffic. This means that drivers of cars, vans and lorries etc. need to be especially vigilant. Sadly, this is often not the case, and here at Accident Advice Helpline we deal with many claims for personal injury compensation from motorcyclists who have been injured because of the negligent actions of other road users.

    In fact, one official statistics states that 48% of motorcycle accidents were actually caused by other road users, namely drivers of cars failing to pay proper care and attention. This means that in almost half of all motorcycle accidents, the blame for the accident does not lie with the rider of the motorbike.

    Would you like to make a claim?
