Have you been involved in a motorcycle accident that wasn’t your fault?
Was someone else to blame?\
Have you been injured or unable to work because of the accident?
Have you had to seek expensive medical treatment because of the accident?
Have you had to make any costly adjustments or alterations to your home to cope with any long term effects of the accident?
If you have answered yes to any of these questions, then you are eligible to make a claim for compensation.

Over at Carry on Biking, the team of experienced, specialist solicitors are totally committed to doing what is right for you, to making your life easier and to recovering the maximum amount of money you deserve to be compensated after an accident. They understand that this is a difficult time for you. You might even feel like you want to draw a line under the accident, not to talk about it anymore at all. Actually some people find that by claiming for compensation if the accident was not their fault can be a way of bringing a close to what can be far reaching effects of the accident.

I have heard that motor cyclists are much more at risk than car drivers. Why is this?

Motorcyclists are 45 times more likely to die in a road accident than a car driver. Shocking isn’t it? So why is this the case?

A car has seatbelts- a motorbike has no such protective measure to prevent ejection on to the road surface
Cars, as well as vans and lorries, have much more traction than motorbikes when it comes to slippery roads and uneven road surfaces. This means bikers are much more likely to skid and fall off your bike. In terms of compensation, if someone else was to blame for the condition of the road, for example if it was poorly maintained, you have a case for compensation.
A car has airbags to cushion the impact the head, a biker does not. This means the full impact goes to the head.
A car chassis acts as a shell in a collision, protecting the driver inside. A motor biker is the first thing to be hit in an accident.
My friends have told me to use a specialist motorcycle accident firm. Why is this?

At Carry on Biking, they are motorcycle enthusiasts. That means that they know all there is to know about biking. The great bits and the difficult bits. This can be an emotionally stressful time, as well as a physical one. A motorcyclist can often sustain serious injuries, because they are not afforded the same safety precautions as a car driver. Knowing that bikers are different to other road users means they need to be represented differently because of this.

If you have been injured in a motorbike accident that wasn’t your fault then now is the time to speak up. Don’t suffer in silence.
