Motorbike accident claims

Motorbike accident claims are our speciality.

"Sorry mate I didn’t see you" is a phrase we hear all the time when we’re knocked off our bikes.

At Sorrymate.com we have over twenty years experience dealing with all types of motorbike accident claims. We know that having the right person represent you with your motorcycle accident claim can make a huge difference in the journey to recovery that follows a serious motorbike accident.

Motorcyclists are classed as vulnerable road users. The Ministry of Transport’s latest report on accident statistics reveals the following:

The main findings of this report show that between 2004 and 2020:

  • Fatalities decreased from 585 to 285 (51%)
  • Serious injuries (adjusted) fell by 48%
  • Motorcycle traffic fell by 22%

Averaged over the period 2015 to 2020:

  • An average of 6 motorcyclists died and 115 were seriously injured (adjusted) over week in reported road casualties
  • A majority of motorcycle fatalities (58%) do not occur at or within 20m of a junction compared to 39% of all seriously injured (adjusted) casualties
  • Almost half (40% of motorcycle fatalities in 2 vehicle accidents involved a car
  • 66% of motorcycle fatalities occurred on rural roads compared to 41% of traffic
  • 92% of motorcycle killed or seriously injured (KSI) casualties were male
  • The most common contributory factor allocated to motorcyclists in fatal or serious accidents (FSA) with another vehicle was “driver failed to look properly”
  • “Driver or rider failed to look properly” was also the most common factor allocated to the other vehicles involved.

According to those same figures there are now 1.4 million people in the UK using motorcycles, scooters and mopeds. Those 1.4 million travel approximately 4.4 billion miles per year. Over the last twenty years there has been a massive 131% increase in the number of motorcyclists registered. That increase unfortunately means more accidents. A local motorbike dealership told us last week that he had seen a 45% increase in the number of mopeds and scooters sold over the last year so we would expect to see these figures rise again when the report is published later this year.

With worrying statistics like that when you find yourself involved in a motorbike accident you need to ensure that you are well represented by professionals who can deal with every aspect of your claim.

Some accidents will mean lengthy medical treatment and a return to work may not be possible in the short term. We will account for that in your claim for personal injury, along with the costs of any care that you may need to be provided with.

Motorcycle accidents can cause mental health problems too. Part of the recovery from your accident will also address any assistance you need with the psychological aspects of your accident, helping you to recover both physically and mentally.
