Motorcycle Accident Solicitors
Road traffic accidents are among the most common types of accidents to result in serious injury. Motorcyclists are often at significant risk with many drivers failing to spot them at junctions or colliding with them when on the road giving rise to motorcycle accident claims.
Due to the vulnerable nature of motorcyclists, the high speeds and a lack of awareness on behalf of other road users, the road traffic accident injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident are often more serious than injuries from regular road traffic accident collisions.
However, regardless of the severity of your personal injuries, if you have been injured when riding your motorbike through no fault of your own our team of solicitors can help you with all aspects of road traffic accident claims.
Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Common injuries sustained from motorcycle road traffic accidents include:
- Arm and leg injuries ranging from cuts and bruises to serious, life-altering fractures.
- Chest injuries ranging from cuts and bruises to the chest area, to rib fractures and serious internal injuries.
- Potentially life-changing injuries to the neck/spine area.
- Head and facial injuries ranging from cuts and bruises to serious brain injuries such as brain damage, skull fractures and concussion.

The Most Popular Questions For Motorcycle Accident Claims
You can claim if the accident was either fully or partially the fault of another motor vehicle and you suffered an injury. You are particularly vulnerable as a motorcyclist and therefore other road users should take particular care to look out for you so do not be too quick to assume that an accident was either fully or partially your fault. Please call Tinsdills and we will fully discuss this with you.
If the accident was either wholly or in part the fault of another road user, or even the rider of the bike you were on if you were a pillion passenger, then you are able to make a claim for compensation, no matter the severity of your injury. However, as a rule of thumb, it is usually only proportionate to pursue a claim if your injuries lasted for a month or more.
There is no set figure for any settlement following a motorcycle accident. Any amount of compensation will be based on what an independent medical report states are injuries caused by your accident and the effects these have had on your life. A set of guidelines known as the Judicial College Guidelines are then considered in light of the medical evidence to provide you with a likely range of settlements that you can expect.
You should contact Tinsdills as soon as you are well enough after your motorcycle accident so that we can help with any queries you have about your accident and look at any rehabilitation you may need. Any claim must be brought within three years of your accident.
