Derry is the second-largest city in Northern Ireland. It is one of the few cities in Europe that never saw its fortifications breached. Derry has some great biking roads around it and this has led to an increase in both motorbikes and bicycles on the roads. Riders of two-wheeled vehicles are very vulnerable compared to the car driver. They are far more likely to be seriously injured or killed and far more likely to need to make a personal injury claim using injury solicitors in Derry.
How motorbike accidents happen
There are many reasons why all accidents happen and motorbike accidents are no exception. They could happen because:
- Other road users not being aware of the bikes
- Car doors being opened in the path of a bike
- Poor road surfaces
- Oil or mud on the road
If this, or any other accident, happens to you through no fault of your own, you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim.
The injuries that can be the result of a motorbike accident
The injuries resulting from motorbike accidents are the same as from all accidents. You could have just a few abrasions or they could be as severe as life changing brain damage, if you survive that is.
The other expenses
When making your personal injury claim, there are items that you can claim reimbursement for, such as:
- Loss of earnings
- Childcare costs
- Travelling costs
- Medical expenses
- Care costs if you can no longer look after yourself
- Replacement of damaged goods, maybe your leathers and helmet
- Home adaption or home moving costs
- The impact of the accident on your future life
- Any other cost or loss incurred because of the accident
