Have you been injured whilst riding a motorbike? If so you may well be able to make a motorcycle accident claim. Accidents on the road, especially involving motorcyclists, are frequent and motorcyclists are amongst the most vulnerable road-users today. Since the rider is more exposed than he or she would be if they were travelling inside a four-wheeled vehicle, they are more susceptible to suffering injury, and most worryingly head injuries, for which we have a dedicated page.
It is a sad but inescapable state of affairs that some road users do not heed motorcyclists in the way they should, and you are much more likely to be injured whilst riding a motorbike than you would be driving a car. If the accident was not your fault, you may be eligible to pursue a motorcycle accident claim.
Motorcycle accident claim
Depending on the severity of your injuries, in the immediate aftermath you should try and record the details of the other parties to the motorcycle accident, as well as their insurer and policy number. If you can, it would also be beneficial to collect the names and addresses of any witnesses to the accident, who can help prove that the accident wasn’t your fault.
You should also try and take photos of the scene of the accident, paying particular attention to any notable road conditions that may help your claim. To give your motorcycle accident claim the best possible chance of success, it’s important to collect as much relevant information as possible.
Motorcycle accident compensation
As soon as you can after your accident, you must seek the attention of a medical professional. Even though a bike injury may not seem serious at first, it may be, even if you aren’t experiencing any pain. This is particularly true if you have suffered a blow to the head, as is always likely with bike accidents.
