    Top 5 most common motorbike accidents


    If you have been involved in an accident on the road which was not your responsibility, you may be looking to make a motorbike accident claim.

    If you have suffered injury as a result of a motorbike traffic accident, there are a number of different mishaps that you need to be wary of. Riding a bike takes a lot of skill and judgement especially as it is such a different driving experience to that of a car.

    Here are the top five most common motorbike accidents locations.

    One of the most common motorbike accident claims is when vehicles slide off a rural road. This driving experience is completely different when compared with a motorway. It requires a completely different approach as drivers may not see an upcoming bend or potential hazardous hairpin. Entering a bend at full tilt without seeing the exit could lead to a dangerous motorbike accident. This is especially dangerous with oncoming traffic.

    A road traffic accident involving a junction

    One of the most common motorbike crashes occurs when a driver pulls out too early at a road junction. Unfortunately a lot of drivers lack the patience to join the traffic flow at the appropriate juncture so they will pull out without hesitation. This could lead to a collision and a possible motorbike compensation claim.


    Another common instance resulting in motorbike crash compensation is when a vehicle overtakes and does not measure the speed and distance enough to overtake safely. In this way, even the most experienced drivers will be unable to measure the performance of their bike. By suddenly veering off this increases the chances of a motorbike accident.

    Losing control

    Spinning out of control on a wet road is another major cause of a motorbike accident. The driver will be held responsible for any injuries you may suffer. This could also happen when the vehicle drives too quickly in hazardous conditions not to mention roads which are unstable.


    Although legal, filtering is another way which could cause a motorcycle accident claim. We have all seen the way vehicles weave in and out of slow moving traffic. Yet this could be dangerous for others, especially motorbike riders, if cars decide to switch lanes unexpectedly.

    Accident Advice Helpline can offer round the clock advice when it comes to motorbike crashes. With more than £30 million awarded each year, you too could be entitled to compensation.
