Have you been injured in a motorbike accident? Our motorcycle accident solicitors could help

Riding a motorbike can be an exhilarating experience, but it can also be a dangerous one. Accidents sustained when riding a motorbike can, unfortunately, be very serious because a rider does not have the same structural protection as a driver in a car. On many occasions the accident is not the motorbike rider’s fault but caused as a result of a lack of care and attention from other drivers.

If you, or a loved one, have been hurt in a motorbike accident our team of experienced motorbike claims experts can help to put together a timeline of what happened to you. We will also work to establish who could be at fault so you can make a claim.

There are many ways that you could be hurt in a motorcycle accident

These are some of the most common motorbike accidents which result in motorbike injury claims.

  • Lane changes. A motorcyclist can be injured when a driver fails to check their blind spot when changing lanes
  • Opening car doors. Drivers or passengers failing to look before opening car doors
  • Accidents at junctions. Road junctions can be particularly hazardous for motorcyclists as car drivers may not see you in their blind spot, may turn without looking or may pull out without seeing you
  • Road conditions. Poor road maintenance could also cause an accident. If you hit a pothole for example or skid on a loose surface
  • Being hit from behind. You could be hit while stopped at traffic lights or in a line of traffic

Compensation for being knocked off motorbike?

If you have been involved in a motorbike accident which wasn’t your fault you could be entitled to claim compensation. For example, the accident may have been as a result of another motorist’s careless or dangerous driving or because of poor road conditions.

Your claim could include compensation for the injuries you sustained as well as any medical or other expenses you have incurred. This includes loss of earnings now and in the future as well as any future expenses you could incur.

Common types of injury resulting from a motorbike accident

Injuries sustained in a motorbike crash are much more likely to be serious, life-threatening or even fatal for a motorcyclist than for a car driver.

Accidents can result in anything from cuts and bruises to fractures and broken bones to more serious head and brain injuries, as well as neck and spine injuries. Serious injuries like these can be life-changing leading to lengthy rehabilitation periods, ongoing medical treatment/care, as well as changing accommodation needs.

Motorbike accidents are also more likely to be fatal than other types of accident and if you have lost a loved one as a result, you could still be entitled to make a claim.

How much compensation will I get for a motorbike accident?

The level of compensation you could be entitled to will depend on the severity of your injuries as well as such factors as loss of earnings. For instance, if you have suffered a broken ankle your pay-out will be less than if you have suffered a major brain injury which means you now need round-the-clock care.

I couldn’t recommend Andrea Bell enough, as a first time house buyer I was pretty clueless to the whole process. Andrea guided me through, responded to my emails extremely quickly put my mind at ease and didn’t make me feel silly with all my questions. She made a process that could have been very stressful very easy. Thank you!

— Zara Millar

If I could rate Andrea any higher than 5 stars I would. Andrea Bell helped me with the sale and purchase of my new home. Andrea was fabulous to work with, she was never too busy to answer any questions I had and kept me up to date throughout. She went over and beyond working tirelessly to ensure I completed and get into my new home during these challenging times. I can't thank her enough for all of her help. I would have no hesitation in working with Andrea again in the future and would recommend her to everyone for any conveyancing needs!

Myself and my young daughter were recently in a car accident and subsequently put in contact with O’Hare Solicitors. Naill O’Hare dealt with personal injury claims for both of us. Naill could not have made the process any easier, taking all the necessary steps and keeping in contact with me at every stage. Even during the recent lockdown situation Niall took the time to contact me with updates whilst working remotely. Naill was very helpful and professional throughout the entire process and negotiated great settlements for both of us in an extremely timely manner. I would have no hesitation in using Niall and O’Hare Solicitors again and would highly recommend to all.

I cannot recommend Andrea Bell and O'Hare Solicitors highly enough. My husband and I used Andrea for both the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new house. Although our intended house purchase fell through, and we had to start again looking for a new home, Andrea pulled it all together for us and kept us focused through all the turmoil. Andrea is also the reason that today, coming out of lockdown we are in our new home 3 months. She worked tirelessly to get contracts signed, funds confirmed and keys exchanged while every company was shutting down and the country was going into lockdown. A true professional.

— Avril McDowell

Can't Thank Andrea Bell and Gemma White enough for the help and guidance they have given me during the purchase of my first home. Professional and quick to reply to messages and answer any questions, they made the process easy. Would recommend to anyone seeking a conveyancing service.

— Nat Creighton

A professional team on top of their game who will take you by the hand and guide you through the legal system and achieve the best outcome for you the client. I have used many local law firms for various reasons and found Colm Owens and his colleagues to be leagues ahead, totally transparent easily contactable and always deal with you in a friendly down to earth manner but not afraid to show their teeth when the pressures on in a court of law. Would highly recommend if you want someone in your corner with both guts and integrity.

— Sam Davidson

Absolutely without doubt the best legal service I have received over the years. Andrea Bell provides a flawless guidance that will easily meet and exceed anyone’s expectations. Purchasing a property through the turbulent past few months, Andrea went above and beyond to steady the process. I can wholeheartedly recommend O’Hare and indeed Andrea.

— Tony Batt

Gemma White was fantastic support in helping me with the purchase of my new home. Always at hand and answered my queries promptly with professionalism and warmth. Would definitely recommend.

Andrea Bell was our solicitor who dealt with both the sale of our old home and purchase of our new home.
