Where motorcycles are involved in crashes on the road with another vehicle, a number of injuries often occur as a result, some of the most common being:
- Whiplash, coming from a sudden jolt
- Burns from skidding on the road surface
- Broken bones from hitting the ground
- Spinal injuries, often coming with whiplash
- Head injuries
- Loss of limbs
As with other road traffic accidents, the driver causing the crash is usually at fault. If they have insurance, you can claim against them directly. If not, you should go through the Motor Insurance Bureau, who are a third party which tries to get money from uninsured drivers to compensate you. If you would like to know whether you are eligible for compensation involving a motorcycle accident, contact our team for an individual assessment.
