Serious motorbike accidents happen far more frequently outside of towns and cities than you may think, with almost 70% of fatal motorbike accidents occurring on dual carriageways and motorways compared to 30% in built up areas in towns and cities. However, whereas you may take the view that these statistics represent young lads driving their motorbikes irresponsibly, the majority of fatal casualties as the result of a motorbike accident happen to people with an average age of 35.
Many of these motorbike accidents occur through drivers of cars and lorries not paying sufficient attention when making manoeuvres such as changing lanes or turning off onto a slip road at speed – leaving their victims with nowhere to go. Pillion passengers also suffer in these motorbike accidents, not necessarily as many physical injuries, but due to the psychological trauma of foreseeing an accident about to happen, and not being able to do anything about it.
Motorbike Accident Compensation Claims
Compensation claims for motorbike accidents traditionally showed a bias towards the defendant because of perceived discrimination against motor cyclists. However, with the help of statistics such as those above supplied by the Road Safety Authority and personal injury claims solicitors prepared to fight for their clients´ rights, motor cyclists are starting to see fair and adequate amounts of compensation being awarded for motorbike accidents. However, it should be pointed out that failing to wear a crash helmet is not only against the law, but will seriously jeopardise your claim for compensation should you be involved in a motorbike accident that was not your fault.
