In recent years more and more motorbikes have been appearing on our roads. They are becoming more popular as a form of transport and over 1 million of them are now registered in the UK. This is because they are cheaper to buy and run and they can get through the traffic easier.
Unfortunately there is a problem with them and that is if you are involved in an accident, then your injuries can be quite severe. This is because you are more vulnerable on a bike. If an accident does happen to you that was not your fault, then you should call the solicitors in Herstmonceux so they can help you in making an injury compensation claim.
Motor bikes now account for 2% of all traffic on the roads today. However they are involved in 20% of deaths and serious injuries from accidents. A motorbike rider is nearly 40% more likely to die in a crash than a car driver is, because they do not have the protective metal around them that a car driver has.
Looking at these percentages, makes it look not very good for a motorbike rider. If you are unfortunate enough that is in an accident and suffer injuries from an accident that was not your fault, then call the solicitors in Herstmonceux to make an injury compensation claim.
The injuries suffered in a motorbike accident
There are lots of different injuries that could happen in a motorbike accident, here are some examples:
- Road rash
- Bikers arm
- Spinal and back injuries
- Broken bones
- Internal injuries
- Head and brain injuries

When a motorbike rider, or a pillion rider, suffer such injuries as these, they lives can be changed for ever, and UK law says that if someone else caused this to happen, they should be compensated by the guilty party for the suffering they have had to endure.
