Michael Lewin Solicitors can help you make a motorcycle accident compensation claim if you have been the innocent victim in a crash on a road in the UK. You are eligible to receive a compensation award if the accident was not your fault.
If you have been injured whist riding a motorbike you are able to claim compensation for your injuries if a third party road user caused the accident. Over 50% of motorbike accidents that happen in the UK are caused by third party drivers failing to see an approaching motorbike at a junction or misjudging the speed/distance of an approaching motorbike and pulling out.
The injuries sustained in an accident if you are the rider or a motorbike are 50 times more likely to be more serious than if you were in a car. Motorbike riders do not have the protection of airbags seatbelts and a car developed to protect the safety of its occupants. All a motorcyclist has to protect them is the safety clothing they are wearing; this safety clothing only goes as far as protecting their skin from serious wounding and their head from a more serious brain injury.
In motorbike accidents the injuries a rider can sustain if they are not fatal are much more severe than those in a car accident. Broken bones internal bleeding paralysis brain damage and multiple other serious injuries can occur if not death.
Before commencing with a motorcycle accident compensation claim it is worth seeking professional legal advice from the experts at Michael Lewin Solicitors. After seeking advice from us Mr B proceeded with his claim and we were pleased to award him with £1525.00 in personal injury compensation.
If you are the family member or loved one of a motorcyclist who has died in a road traffic accident you are able to claim compensation too. The sympathetic and supporting solicitors can help you make a claim if a loved one has been involved in an RTA through no fault of their own and suffered a fatal injury. If you do decide to pursue this type of claim we can secure compensation for the nature of the injury sustained but we can also claim bereavement compensation too.
