Accidents Involving Motorcyclists
Motorcyclists, along with cyclists and pedestrians, are the most vulnerable road users.
On a motorbike a person is much less protected. While they are on the move motorcyclists are vulnerable to the elements, other road users and the quality of the roads.
Additionally, motorbikes can accelerate very fast, reach high speeds and are less stable or easily seen by other road users, making it more likely that motorcyclists become involved in serious accidents.
Motorbike Accidents and Fatalities
According to THINK!, a campaign run by the Department of Transport motorcyclists currently account for 19 percent of all road user deaths while they only make up 1 percent of the total number of road users.
That means that a motorcyclist is roughly 38 times more likely killed in traffic.
The most common factors attributing to motorbike accidents are overtaking, speeding, fatigue and cornering.
Accidents involving a motorcycle are often more severe, as the motorcyclist is more exposed and often travelling at higher speeds. Unfortunately this means that motorbike injuries more often prove fatal.
Fatal accidents often are the result of serious head trauma, which is why motorcyclists are always advised to ensure they wear the proper protection.
In addition to head trauma, there are many other injuries that motorcyclists can suffer from as a result of the accident.
Some of the most common injuries in motorbike accidents are:
- Spinal injuries
- Head trauma
- Broken bones
- Soft tissue injuries
- Back and neck injuries
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 was caused by for example another road user, poorly maintained road surface or missing road signage you can claim to be compensated for the injuries and the damages you incurred.
You can expect the claims process to follow the below steps:
- 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 considered:
- 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.
Please be aware that cost may differ depending on your personal circumstances.
