Being involved in a road traffic accident is not uncommon. Those usually involved in accidents of this nature are men and young people under the age of 25.
Motorcycle Injury Lawyers will be able to help you every step of the way. Beginning with an initial consultation in which we will learn more about your circumstances, we will guide you through the whole process and ultimately ensure you gain the compensation you deserve.
We can also assist you in sourcing a replacement vehicle if yours is so badly damaged you cannot drive it and we will do the same while you are waiting for repairs to be done on your vehicle. We can arrange repairs on your car, which will be paid for by the party responsible for the accident.
Motorbike Road Traffic Accidents
An in-depth study of Motorcycle Accidents by the Department of Transport was carried out in 2004*, highlighting poor statistics when observing the role of motorcycles in road traffic accidents (RTAs). It reported that the rate of motorcyclists who were killed or seriously injured was almost twice that of a pedal bike rider and that despite making up only 1% of vehicle traffic, motorbike riders account for 14% of total deaths and serious injuries in Britain.
