The majority of motorcycling accidents often arise as a result of:
- another motorist emerging into the path of a motorcyclist
- another motorist turning across the path of the motorbike
- a third party rear-end shunting the biker
- collisions at, or near, a road junction, with T-junctions being a particularly high risk collision area
- another vehicle changing lane into the biker’s path
- impacts at roundabouts
- a parked vehicle opening a door into the path of the motorbike causing the rider to swerve into another vehicle or hit the ground
- Pedestrians stepping out negligently into the motorbike’s path
- uneven road surfaces, poorly maintained roads, potholes or failure by local authorities to keep the road surface in a safe condition
- accidents as a result of a defective motorbike or motorcycle part (Product Liability claims).
Common motorcyclist injuries
Injuries as a result of a motorbike accident can be severe. Our motorcycling accident specialists have represented individuals who have sustained a range of injuries including but not limited to:
- head injuries – ranging from fatal skull fractures and brain injuries to minor concussion and cuts
- spinal injuries
- road rash
- limb injuries – including arm injuries and leg injuries
- psychiatric injury
- chest / abdomen injuries.
Catastrophic and fatal motorcycling accidents
Our expert team of motorcyclist lawyers have also represented families in fatal accident compensation claims or in circumstances where a motorcyclist has been seriously and catastrophically injured. In these situations our catastrophic injury lawyers will seek to secure an early interim compensation payment to ease financial hardship. We will also consider the appropriateness of Personal Injury Trusts to ensure that benefits are protected and will work with our Private Client solicitors to arrange any Court of Protection needs should the injured individual be unable to manage their own financial affairs.
