Spring is now in full swing, and many motorcyclists are taking advantage of the sunny skies and warmer temperatures to go on motorbike rides.
There are an estimated 3.6 million motorcyclists in the UK, who ride a staggering 4.4 billion miles year. Motorbike enthusiasts enjoy the freedom offered by biking, and the chance to socialise with fellow bikers.
However, motorcycle riding also comes with dangers, often as the result of road traffic accidents that are not a biker’s fault.
According to research, despite accounting for just 1% of road users, motorcycle riders are 25 times more likely to be seriously injured on the roads than car drivers, and account for 25% of serious road injuries.
At Novum Law, we have many years’ experience dealing with motorcycle accident claims.
We know only too well the distress a serious motorbike accident causes and the importance of seeking expert legal advice from a specialist solicitor if you want to make a claim for compensation.
Tim Blackwell says:
“Motorcycling is a hobby for some and a passion for others, but it’s not without risk. Bikers should always be aware of their surroundings looking out for potholes and hazards created by other road users. Keep a look out at junctions and be careful when overtaking as other drivers have a habit of pulling out without looking. If a crash happens, motorcyclists face an increased risk of life changing, serious injury and in the most serious accidents, death.”
“We want bikers to enjoy trouble free rides and not to become a bike crash statistic. My advice if you have been involved in a road traffic accident as a motorcyclist that wasn’t entirely your fault, is to get in touch with a specialist personal injury law firm to discuss helping you with your rehabilitation and making a compensation claim as soon as possible – just don’t leave it too late, as you typically only have 3 years to start a claim.”
