Unfortunately when a motorbike rider is involved in a collision, unless the speeds are relatively slow, injuries are common. The most commonly fractured bones are the shoulder and pelvis. Concussion and brain damage may occur if the head is injured, however wearing a helmet reduces the risk of death as a consequence by almost 40%. There is also a condition called bikers arm, which is caused by nerve damage and can lead to paralysis.
These accidents are often caused by careless drivers who do not give motorcyclists the respect that they deserve on the road. They might overtake too closely or even pull out in front of them without warning. Motorbikes are more difficult to see than larger vehicles, and some motorists simply don’t look properly before carrying out a manoeuvre.
Serious motorbike injuries
If you have sustained serious motorbike injuries through no fault of your own, then you could be entitled to claim compensation for your suffering. You can claim for your injuries, (both physical and psychological), as well as any out-of-pocket expenses that you incurred as a result of your accident. For example, if you had to pay for taxis to and from hospital appointments, or if you were unable to work due to your injuries, then you can have this taken into account in your claim.
