Motorbike accident solicitors

Have you or a member of your family had a motorbike accident?

Motorbike accidents and motorbike injuries can be particularly severe.

Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable to car drivers, other road users as well as pedestrians who don’t take sufficient care as well as defects in the road surface including pot holes, broken tarmac, mud, oil and also spillages.

Can you claim against your friend or family member if you were travelling as a pillion passenger and the accident was partly their fault?

We recently acted for a pillion passenger injured when her boyfriend who was driving his motorbike too close to the vehicles in front clipped a car which had suddenly changed lanes in heavy traffic. He suffered only bruising, but she had a nasty elbow fracture which required surgery and impacted upon her ability to work. If the accident was someone else’s fault – even if they are a member of your family or a close friend – you are able to make a claim against their insurers.

Expert motorbike accident compensation lawyers

For over 20 years we have specialised in motorcycle accident claims and helping motorcyclists get compensation for the losses and injuries that they have suffered. We have particular experience of helping motorcyclists get compensation when other road accident law firms and road accident claims companies have failed or refused to take a case on.

Amputation following motorbike accident

Riding on a motorcycle leaves the driver and any passengers’ limbs particularly vulnerable to injury as there is little protection between them and other vehicles or the road. According to the Department of Transport’s 2015 report, 74% of motorcyclists admitted to hospital between 1999 and 2015 were admitted with serious injuries.

Due to their vulnerability, those involved in motorcycle accidents can often lose or severely damage their legs, feet and arms. Injuries which often result in amputation include:

  • Broken/ fractured bones leading to excessive blood loss or loss of blood supply
  • Damage to the nerve endings leading to amputation
  • Traumatic amputation during the accident

Making a loss of limb compensation claim can help an amputee reclaim their life quickly with funds to help with their immediate needs like physiotherapy, rehabilitation and appropriate prosthetics. Compensation can also be used in the long term for home modifications, sports prosthetics and accessible cars.

If you or a member of your family has lost a limb as a result of a motorbike accident then contact our specialist limb loss claims solicitors for a quick, free, no obligation discussion about making a claim.
