Have you been in an accident?
Have you recently been involved in a motorcycle accident that was not your fault? Have you sustained any injuries from the accident that have caused you pain, left you unable to work or meant you have had to make serious alterations to your lifestyle? At Carry on Biking, we are committed to giving you the best legal advice, using our team of specialist bike injury lawyers, and to recovering the maximum amount of compensation available for your circumstance. We know that the process of claiming for compensation can feel a daunting task, particularly after the trauma you may have suffered during and after the accident. We are dedicated to reducing the stress of making a claim as much as possible to ensure you get what you deserve.
Why a specialist firm?
At Carry on Biking, we know about motorcycling. We know that bikers love their motorcycles. Unfortunately we also know that motorcyclists often suffer extremely serious injuries. These injuries can permanently alter your life. We understand the emotional and psychological impact this will have on your life, as well as the physical hurdles you will have to face. We recognise the dangers of the road that are posed to motorcyclists.
The road users not protected by the shell of their vehicle, seat belts, or airbags. We know that this means we need to represent you differently from other road users involved in an accident. Because of this, we offer you a team of specialist solicitors, experienced in the nuances of dealing with motorbike accident compensation claims.
Why are motor cyclists at more risk?
As a motorcyclist, you are forty-five times more likely to die in an accident on your bike than you would be if you made the journey by car. A car offers protection, by its shell as well as the added safety considerations of seat belts and air bags. A motorcyclist is afforded none of these, with the body taking the brunt of the impact with the bike. You are much more exposed to the dangers of the road than other road users and this contributes to the high rates of injury and death to bikers on UK roads.
Compared to cars, vans, and lorries, motorbikes have less traction when it comes to slippery roads. This means you are more likely to skid and fall off your bike. In these instances, the maintenance of the road may be to blame. If the road was of poor quality, it is possible to make a compensation claim against the organisation charged with its maintenance.
The injuries a biker sustains are hugely variable and dependant on speed, impact and the severity of the accident. From broken bones to severe brain damage, the repertoire of injuries a biker is likely to suffer if involved in an accident is vast. Often, the motorbike itself takes huge impact and is severely damaged.
At Carry on Biking, we help you claim for compensation to cover the costs incurred through the accident, whether this is loss of earnings, costs of necessary lifestyle adjustments to accommodate a more serious injury, damage to your bike or any other expenses that have occurred as a direct result of negligence.
