Motorcycle accidents

Motorcycle accidents are much more likely to result in serious injury than any other road accident (Department of Transport data).

The reasons for the higher rate of injury, affecting motorbike riders and pillion passengers, include their relative lack of protection compared to other motor vehicles.

Other road users often fail to check for bikers when turning, overtaking or changing lanes, and poor road conditions are also a factor.

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, we can help. Your motorcycle injury compensation claim will be handled by a specialist solicitor, with a track record in winning compensation for injured bikers.
