Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents can result in personal injuries ranging from minor whiplash to serious brain injury, or worse. Whatever type of motorcycle accident you have suffered you are entitled to claim compensation if someone else was at fault (although, generally, the accident must have occurred within the last 3 years).

  • Collision with another vehicle

  • Falls from trying to avoid a vehicle

  • Falls from hitting a defect in the road

  • Pedestrian being hit by a vehicle

In most Motorcycle accident claims, the person’s insurance company who was at fault pays compensation. Even in the case of an uninsured or ‘hit and run’ driver it is possible to claim compensation through the Motor Insurers Bureau, an organisation established to compensate the victims of negligent uninsured or untraced motorists.

If the cause of the accident is a result of road disrepair – a motorcycle or bicycle wheel hitting a pothole in the road for example – a claim for compensation can be made against the authorities who are responsible for the repair and maintenance of public roads. Road defects can be due to faulty road design, disrepair, inadequate maintenance, or failure to remove a road hazard. The highway authority or local council are obliged to keep the condition of roads and pavements up to a reasonable standard by way of a regular inspection regime and a subsequent program of repairs. If they fail to do so and injury occurs then they can be held liable to pay compensation.
