Accidents involving motorcyclists
Motorcyclists – along with cyclists and pedestrians – are among the most vulnerable road users. Each year, much of the road traffic accident compensation paid out goes to motorcyclists.
Whilst on your motorbike, you are far less protected than someone driving a car. On the move, motorcyclists are vulnerable to the elements, other road users and the quality of the roads.
Additionally, motorbikes can accelerate very quickly. At high speeds you are less stable and less visible than other road users. Because of this, motorcyclists can be involved in serious accidents quite easily.
Motorbike accidents and fatalities
According to THINK!, a campaign run by the Department of Transport, motorcyclists make up 1 per cent of the total number of road users, but currently account for 19 per cent of all road user deaths.
That means that a motorcyclist is roughly 38 times more likely to be killed in traffic.
The most common factors causing motorbike accidents are overtaking, speeding, fatigue and cornering.
Motorbike accident injuries
Accidents involving a motorcycle are often more severe, as the motorcyclist is so exposed and often travelling at higher speeds. Unfortunately, this means that motorbike injuries are more likely to prove fatal.
Fatal accidents are often the result of serious head trauma, which is why motorcyclists are always advised to wear proper protection.
As well as head traumas, other injuries that motorcyclists often suffer after road accidents include:
- Spinal injuries
- Broken bones
- Soft tissue injuries
- Back and neck injuries
Claiming compensation for a motorbike accident
The Road Traffic Act 1999 clearly states that a person is entitled to compensation for injuries caused by a traffic accident if they were not at fault.
If you have suffered injuries after an accident that were caused by another road user, poorly maintained road surface or missing road signage, you can claim compensation for your injuries and any damages.
Starting your motorbike injury claim
Our solicitors follow a four-step process for motorbike injury claims:
- Free consultation
- Gathering information to build your case
- Calculating compensation
How is compensation calculated in motorbike accident claims?
To assess the compensation appropriate for your claim, the following factors will be taken into account:
- How much pain and suffering you experienced as a result of your incident
- Estimated loss of earnings
- Medical expenses and likely costs for future treatments
- Travel expenses incurred while receiving medical treatment and having your motorbike repaired
- Whether or not you will require modifications to your home or transport

No-win, no-fee and legal expenses
Our no-win, no-fee solicitors in Manchester regularly assess the prospects of winning your case at all stages of your claim.
If we are able to offer you a Conditional Fee Agreement for your claim, you will not have to pay our legal costs, however, if you lose your claim you may have to pay your opponent’s legal costs.
Legal expenses insurance, which is often provided with some motor insurance policies, can be used to pay your opponent’s legal fees. To protect you, we take out a legal expenses insurance policy for you when taking on your no-win, no-fee claim, if you do not already have a policy.
Disbursements for legal costs
If you win, your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs and disbursements.
Any legal costs which are not paid by your opponent may be deducted from your compensation. However, you will not pay anything if your claim is unsuccessful and not until it has come to the end.
