    Making a motorbike accident claim

    Motorbikes are easier to get through traffic, so they are becoming more popular. They are also much cheaper to run than a car often is. You have to have a lot of skill to ride a motorbike, so this puts a lot of people off trying to do so. But if you do get one and suffer an accident that was not your fault, and you get injured as a result, you should use a personal injury lawyer in Kircubbin to make an injury claim on your behalf.

    Motorbikes now account for 1% of all traffic on UK roads, but are unfortunately involved in 20% of deaths and serious injuries from accidents. A motorbike rider is 40 times more likely to die in an accident than a car driver. Helmets reduce the risk of brain injuries by 50%, but still 80% of motorbike accident deaths are from brain injuries.

    All of these percentages do not make good reading for the motorbike rider, and if you are one of the unlucky ones injured in an accident that was not your fault, then you may want to make a personal injury claim using a personal injury lawyer in Kircubbin.

    Injuries suffered by motorbike riders

    The injuries suffered by motorbike riders include the following:

    • Spinal injuries
    • Broken bones
    • Back injuries
    • Head injuries
    • Road rash (this is where the rider slides along the road, scraping skin and flesh from their body) and
    • Biker’s arm (this is where the accident happens in such a way that the bike falls on the arm of the rider and crushes it).

    If you have any of these injuries as a result of an accident that happened through no fault of your own, you should use a personal injury lawyer in Kircubbin to make an injury claim.

    How to make your injury claim

    You have to consider how the accident may change your life as part of your injury claim. This will obviously depend on how serious your injuries are, but other things for which you may be able to claim include:

    • Care costs
    • Loss of earnings, past and future and
    • Replacement of equipment and accessories.
