Making a motorcycle accident claim

30 motorcyclists are killed or injured every day on Britain’s roads. Blackwater Law’s team of specialist personal injury lawyers represent motorcyclists across the UK in claiming compensation for their injuries, so they can move on from the accident and move forward with their lives.

It is an unfortunate reality on our roads that motorcyclists are 40 times more likely to be killed in a road traffic accident than a car driver with motorcyclists accounting for 18% of all deaths and serious injuries on UK roads.

Why speak to a lawyer that specialises in motorcycle accident claims?

It is unfortunately the case that motorcyclists will often suffer significantly worse injuries during an accident compared to drivers and passengers of other vehicles. Even minor road traffic accidents can lead to significant and sometimes life-threatening injuries. The nature of the accidents, the involvement of police (in many cases) and the severity of injuries can make motorcycle accident compensation claims more complex than many other types of claims.

It is for this reason that compensation claims for motorcyclists injured in road accidents are best dealt with by an experienced personal injury lawyer, one that specialises in advising and representing injured motorcyclists.

Blackwater Law’s team of personal injury lawyers advise and represents motorcyclists across the country. They are recognised as one of the leading teams of personal injury lawyers in the South East by the Legal 500 – an independent directory of the country’s top law firms.
