Vulnerable Road Users
Cyclists and motorbikes are more vulnerable road users and can be at more risk of serious accidents as a result of their vehicles. Motorcyclists can also suffer more serious injuries due to a lack of protection. Speeding, high winds, poor road conditions or surfaces and other issues can directly contribute to accidents and serious injury.
As a result of a motorcycle accident, you are likely to suffer severe injuries such as a head injury, severe lacerations, loss of limbs, fractures and broken bones. Whilst you may not wish to make a claim for compensation if you have been injured in an accident that is not your fault you have the right to hold those responsible to account.
