There are many places in the UK where motorbike riders enjoy riding their bikes, as we have some wonderful biking roads, not just for motorbikes but for cyclists as well. Unfortunately, sometimes the bikers are involved in Kirkintilloch road traffic accidents that were not their fault, and if they are injured, they may be entitled to claim compensation.
Motorbikes and accidents
There are lots of different reasons why a motorbike accident can occur, most commonly, other vehicles are involved and the driver just did not see the biker in time to stop. Some other reasons for motorbike accidents are:
- Defects on the bike such as brakes could cause a nasty accident
- Potholes or bad road surfaces
- Spillages on the road, diesel is particularly dangerous to a motor cyclist
- Trails of mud left by farmers and construction lorries
- Filtering through traffic, cars do not always indicate when they are changing lanes
- Opening of car doors without looking, knocking the motor biker off their bike
These are just some ways that motorbikes accidents are caused by other people. If you find yourself in this situation, providing the accident happened no more than three years ago and you needed medical attention, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim for Kirkintilloch road traffic accidents.
