Injury claim in Machrihanish

Do you need to make a motorbike accident injury claim in Machrihanish?

The amount of motorbikes on UK roads has steadily increased over the last few years. They now account for 1% of all road traffic, but unfortunately they account for 20% of death and serious injuries on the roads. A motorbike rider is 40 times more likely to die than a car driver, because they do not have the protection the surroundings of a car gives.

If you’ve had a motorbike accident that was not your fault, you should make an injury claim in Machrihanish

Most motorbike riders are also car drivers, and there is a train of thought that suggest they make better car drivers because they are more aware of two-wheeled vehicles on the road, whether they be motorbikes or bicycles. It has even been suggested that the driving test should be changed to the road users test, and that before anyone drives they should have instruction on a two-wheeled vehicle to make them more aware also.

There are several reasons why you may come off your bike and have to make an injury claim in Machrihanish, including:

  • Potholes;
  • Bad road surfaces;
  • Oil or mud on the road;
  • Driver error;
  • Rider error; or
  • Car doors being opened onto you.

The sorts of injuries you can sustain in a motorbike accident

There are countless injuries you could have, but some of the more common ones are:

  • Back and spinal injuries;
  • Head injuries;
  • Broken bones;
  • Road rash (the rider slides along the road and takes skin or flesh off their body); and
  • Biker’s arm (the bike falls in such a way that it crushes the biker’s arm).

In the case of a fatality, it would be the bereaved family who make the injury claim in Machrihanish on behalf of the victim of the accident.

You can claim for things other than your injuries

When making your injury claim in Machrihanish, there are other things apart from your pain and suffering for which you can get compensation, such as:

  • Anxiety and stress;
  • Loss of earnings;
  • Care costs if you can no longer look after yourself;
  • Replacement of damaged goods, e.g. your leathers and helmet;
  • Home adaption or home moving costs;
  • The impact of the accident on your future life; and
  • Any other cost or loss incurred because of the accident.
