The motorbike accident solicitors at Lanyon Bowdler are thoroughly experienced when it comes to successfully claiming compensation for individuals who have suffered serious motorcycle crashes whilst out on the open road.
When compared to other road users, motorcyclists have an especially poor safety record. As a group they make up less than 1% of vehicle traffic, yet motorbike accidents are responsible for 14% of total deaths and serious injuries on Britain’s roads (DETR, 2000).
In recent years motor biking has become an enormous industry in the UK, with thousands of people drawn to the independence and exhilaration of taking to the open road on two wheels.
Owning a motorbike allows the motorcyclist to enjoy unrivalled freedom, beating queues and nipping through traffic, however this rise in popularity means more and more people are being forced to make motorbike accident claims due to the negligence of other road users.
Motorcycling accidents typically occur as a result of other road users failing to see a motorcyclist. With just two wheels for stability and no protection, it is an unfortunate fact that many motorbike accidents are fatal.
If you have been injured in a motorbike accident that was not your fault, whether you were the motorcyclist or a pillion passenger at the time, you may be eligible to claim compensation.
As a pillion passenger, we understand that a motorbike accident would not have been your fault but may have been the fault of your rider, a third party such as another road user, or both. In virtually all motorbike accident claims involving a pillion passenger, making a claim is a straightforward process, and typically the passenger's claim is successful.
