Approximately 28,000 motorbike riders are injured in the UK every year following a collision on the roads – a high number of these incidents were caused by the negligence of a third party road user.

The majority of motorcycle accident claims are made against the third party drivers that caused the accident by failing to see an approaching motorcyclist. Some motorcycle accident claims, however, are made against a negligent party if the accident arose as a result of a dangerous pothole or poorly maintained road.

In order to initiate motorcycle accident claims proceedings it is extremely important you have sufficient evidence to support your case – whether the accident was caused by a third party driver’s negligence or whether the incident arose because the roads were poorly maintained by the council or highways agency.

Photographic evidence relating to the scene of your motorbike accident will be extremely beneficial to your case, as will witness statements and testimonies. After your motorcycle accident it is extremely important you access the details of the driver you believe to be responsible, otherwise there will not be anyone to claim against.

As part of the correct protocol following a road traffic collision, you are obliged to inform your insurers that you and your motorcycle have been in a collision – you must do this even if the accident was not your fault. This does not count if you were riding as a pillion passenger although you will still need the responsible driver’s details.

After you have reported the incident to your insurer, and the police if necessary, and gathered sufficientphotographic and witness evidence, you should consult a professional firm of motorcycleaccident claims solicitors who will be able to assess your case and help you on your way to accessing the compensation that is rightfully yours.
