If your road traffic accident involved you riding a motorcycle and getting injured as a result of another person’s negligence, then you could also be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Legal Request has extensive experience in pursuing compensation for motorbike victims of road traffic accidents, read on below to find out more about road traffic accidents involving motorbikes, and how we can help you make a successful personal injury compensation claim.
What makes motorbike riders so vulnerable?
As well as being a lot quieter and smaller than cars and lorries, motorbike users also have to content with a number of other hazards that four-wheeled vehicle drivers would never even have to consider.
For example, motorbike users often suffer injuries caused by defects road surfaces such as oil spills or potholes (in which case it is possible to make a claim against the authority responsible for maintaining the road). They are also more vulnerable due to the lack of seatbelts and outside protection available to them.
If my injury was caused by someone else, but probably wouldn’t have happened if I was in a car with a seatbelt on, can I still claim?
Absolutely. All road users have a duty of care to other road users and especially to those more vulnerable than themselves – such as motorcycle users. Whatever the circumstances, as long as the accident wasn’t your fault, there is a good chance you will be able to make a compensation claim for the injuries you have suffered.
See our main section on Road Traffic Accidents for more details about making a claim. You can also find out how Legal Request can help you claim in an efficient, effective and professional manner.
