Motorbike accident explained
It’s all too common for motorcyclists to be involved in an accident due to inattention and carelessness of other road users and being on a motorbike, you are vulnerable to all kinds of forces. This is why many of those accidents lead to serious injuries. If someone else's negligence resulted in your injury, you should talk to a personal injury claims solicitor.
Most common causes and types of motorbike accidents
There are all kinds of scenarios that can cause a motorbike accident. Here are the most common causes:
- By hitting potholes: where a local council has failed to keep the road in proper condition
- By car doors: when someone opens a car door without seeing a motorcyclist
- By other motorcyclists: when someone cuts a bend or overtakes too closely
- From spillages: diesel and oil can create slippery road conditions that can catch bikers out and lead to accidents
- From careless driving: where other road users fail to see your bike, then pull out or change lanes without warning
These accidents result in different kinds of injuries. Our clients most commonly seek compensation for:
- Serious leg injuries
- Serious head injuries
- Broken arms
- Broken neck and spinal injuries
- Limb amputations
What can I claim for?
If you have been injured in a motorbike accident, you can claim compensation for the following:

Can I claim if the accident was partly my fault?
Not every motorbike accident is caused entirely through the inattention of drivers. Even if you believe that you may have been partly responsible for an accident, you should talk to us to establish the full legal position. You may be entitled to compensation where someone else was either fully or partially negligent for your accident.
How much compensation can I claim?
