Motorbike accidents resulting in using an injury lawyer in Moulton
Motorbikes account for only 1% of the traffic on UK roads but are involved in 20% of the accidents, and a rider is 40 times more likely to die in an accident than a car driver. Crash helmets help to reduce the risk of head injuries, but still 50% of riders who lose their lives do so because of head or brain injuries.
These accidents happen for many reasons and are not all the fault of the rider. Quite often though, they create the need for personal injury claims using an injury lawyer in Moulton.
The reasons for motorbike accidents
There are endless reasons why motorbike accidents happen. Some of them are:
- Filtering through other traffic;
- Opening of car doors;
- Defect on the bike;
- Potholes or bad road surfaces;
- Spillages on the road, or oil or mud; and
- Collisions with other vehicles – cars, buses, lorries etc.
There are many other ways accidents can happen, and if you are involved in one which was not your fault, then you may want to use an injury lawyer in Moulton.
The injuries you may sustain in a motorbike accident
The injuries can be:
- Soft tissue injuries;
- Facial injuries;
- Brain injuries;
- Broken bones;
- Road rash;

Some of these injuries can be life changing, not just for the victim but for those around them as well. If the victim is too badly injured to deal with matters themselves, a family member should contact us to deal with an injury lawyer in Moulton.
