Motorbike Accident Compensation
If you have suffered an injury from being involved in a motorcycle accident which was not your fault, then it is possible that you will be entitled to make a motorbike accident compensation claim. Because of the exposed nature of riding a motorbike, injuries that occur on them can be severe. It has been suggested that up to 19% of the most severe and fatal road traffic accidents are those involving motorcyclists. The most common type of accident involving motorcycles are those caused by drivers in other vehicles failing to spot the motorcycle and the rider being hit as a result.
Motorbike Accident Claims
In addition to being hit by other vehicles, hazardous road conditions are another common cause of accident. These can include, mud or ice on the road, oil spills and also pot-holes. If you were involved in this kind of accident, then it's possible that you could make a personal injury claim against the organisation or person responsible for the conditions on the road or making sure that it's maintained.
It's important to remember that all road users should have insurance for their vehicles and it's likely that their policies cover claims against them for personal injury. This means that it will be the insurance company that will effectively be paying for your claim so you should not feel hesitant to put in a motorbike accident claim.
