Every year in Britain, more and more people are taking to the road on motorbikes. As a means of transport, a hobby and even a way of life, motorbikes are increasingly popular. Unfortunately, this has also led to an escalating number of motorbike accidents. Bikers are extremely vulnerable as they lack much of the protection offered to car drivers, such as seat belts and air bags. They are also at risk from road defects including uneven road surfaces, potholes and spillages. In 2010 alone, 403 bikers were killed in reported road accidents, accounting for 22% of all road deaths in Britain that year. Thousands more are involved in accidents that result in life-altering injuries.
We know that one of the greatest risks to bikers is the fact that motorists all too often do not see bikers on the road until it is too late, particularly at junctions, lane filters and bends in the road. Bikers can often feel victimised following a motorbike accident, with many drivers claiming that the biker was at fault and responsible for the accident. Our specialist motorbike claims lawyers understand all of these issues and are here to help you recover the compensation you deserve.
