They are called organ donors. It’s because motorbike accidents are usually fatal and the victims end up having their organs harvested and thus “heroically” saving other people’s lives. The horrible part is that a lot of the times these accidents aren’t even their fault. It’s because some guy forgot to look in the mirror before overtaking, or turned into a road without looking left and right.
What are the most common causes of motorbike injury claims?
Many motorbike accidents happen every year because of poorly maintained roads. A hole in the road can be fatal to a motobiker. In the event of an accident caused by poor road surfaces, the claim can be made against the local authorities.
Besides that, the most common causes are collisions with other vehicles, either cars, other motorbikes or even bicycles.
When is the time to start a no win no fee motorbike injury compensation claim?
Anytime in the three years following your accident. A no win no fee motorbike injury compensation claim is treated just like any other personal injury claim. It’s one of the most common road traffic accidents. The motorcycle offers rushes of adrenaline when going high speed, but also when you see a car pulling from the parking lot and are not sure if the driver will see you in time or not. Many motorbike accidents happen in cities, at small speeds, only because of the negligence of drivers.
They often result in a damaged bike and in physical and even psychological injuries. But rest assured: you are entitled to receive financial compensation for any injury that you suffer out of someone else’s fault. The compensation is meant to support you in recovering faster and in buffering any impact that your life as a whole might have suffered as a result of the accident.
