    Our personal injury lawyer in Kings Cross/Euston

    Motorbike riders can be involved in accidents in which they sustain injuries, and then they may use our personal injury lawyer in Kings Cross/Euston to make a personal injury compensation claim.

    Motorbike riders are very vulnerable on our roads as they have very little protection, certainly not the metal bubble a car driver has around them.  

    Unfortunately, more motorbikes mean more motorbike accidents.  Although Motorbikes account for only 1% of the traffic on UK roads, they are involved in 20% of the accidents, and they are not all the fault of the rider. A sensible motorbike rider wears a crash helmet to protect his head and leather clothing to protect his body.  The helmets reduce the risk of severe head injury by 50%, but still 80% of motorbike deaths are because of head injuries.

    How accidents on motorbikes can happen

    There are lots of different reasons why motorbike accidents can happen, some of them being:

    • Collisions with other vehicles – cars, buses lorries etc.
    • Filtering
    • Opening of car doors
    • Potholes
    • Bad road surfaces
    • Oil or mud on the road
    • Defect on the bike

    What injuries happen in motorbike accidents

    Because of the lack of protection for motorbike riders, when they are in an accident their injuries tend to be serious. The same applies to pillion passengers who should wear the same protective clothing as the rider.

    • Replacement equipment and accessories
    • Loss of earnings
    • Extra medical expenses
