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.
