People who choose to ride motorcycles are typically well aware that their mode of transport of choice puts than at greater risk of being injured in a road traffic accident than car drivers. What many might not be aware of is that 19% of the people killed on Britain’s roads in 2012 were either motorbike riders or their passengers. This may not sound like a huge amount, but when you consider that only approximately 1% of the population rides a motorcycle, it puts it in some perspective.
Motorcyclists often try to calm concerns from loved ones by saying that they are always careful when riding their bike on a public highway and are constantly on the lookout for potential problems. This is all well and good, but no matter how careful an individual is, there will not be much they will be able to do if somebody in a much larger vehicle makes a mistake that puts them at risk.
If you are ever unfortunate enough to be injured in a an accident that was not your fault while you were riding your bike, there will be a chance that you might be able to sue the responsible party for personal injury compensation with the help of a top 100% no-win, no-fee solicitor in Beadlow.
Motorbike accidents and a solicitor in Beadlow
It’s a sad fact that if you are involved in an accident with a car, van, lorry, bus, coach, or any other larger vehicle while you’re going for a ride on your motorcycle, there will be every likelihood that you will come off a lot worse than the person or people in the other vehicle/s, no matter how high quality your protective clothing and crash helmet is.
Typically, if another road user was to be held liable for your accident, a decent 100% no-win, no -fee’ solicitor in Beadlow would be able to make a claim for compensation from the negligent party’s insurer. If you had irrefutable evidence that the other road user was liable, it would be highly likely that his or her insurer would seek to make you an offer before your case came to court.
This is where it would be vital to have a good solicitor in Beadlow fighting your corner. Some less than reputable insurers will attempt to make an offer that is well below what you might receive in court to save money. If you have no experience of personal injury law, an amount that is considerably lower than what you might win in court might sound attractive. This is why you need to get representation from a firm such as Accident Advice Helpline today.
