In 2019 alone, there were 336 motorcyclists were killed due to a motoring accident. All road users should feel safe, including motorcycle users.

Therefore, we highly recommend you contact Solicitors On Your Side if you have been hurt in a road traffic accident whilst riding a motorcycle. Our experienced solicitors will help you get the highest possible compensation for your accident.

Why are Motorcyclists most vulnerable on the road?

There is a range of reasons why motorcyclists are more vulnerable on the road. These include:

  • Motorcycles are a lot smaller than other vehicles. This makes them harder to be seen when on the road. Especially when they are filtering through traffic or overtaking.
  • Motorcyclists are more prone to be affected by weather impacts. Because of their size; motorcycle users are a lot more likely to be affected by changes in weather such as wind and rain. That means that road users should be extra careful around motorcyclists, especially in weather conditions such as; rain, snow, ice, fog etc.
  • Motorcyclists are affected more by road conditions. Potholes and dangerous road conditions are more likely to affect motorcyclists because of their size. They are more likely to avoid potholes and swerve onto the road. Larger motor users should treat motorcycle users like any motor vehicle and give them the appropriate distance and spacing.

If you are a motorcycle user and have been injured due to someone else’s behaviour or error on the road, we highly recommend you contact Solicitors On Your Side to get the highest compensation possible.

Types of motorcycle injury claims 

There is a range of things that motorcycle users can claim if they have been hurt on the road due to someone’s negligent behaviour. The list can be never-ending; however, the most popular ones include:

  • Crashes due to careless and dangerous driving of the larger motor vehicles. This includes dangerous overtaking and tailgating; leading to crashes.
  • Road and weather conditions. When motorcycles swerve onto the road to avoid dangers; leading to crashes if larger motor users are not giving the motorcycle enough space.

How can road users ensure that motorcyclists are safe on the road?

It is the road users’ responsibility to ensure that everyone is safe on the roads. Both motorcyclists and larger motor users must enforce the correct behaviour to maintain safety for everyone. Road users such as car, lorry and van drivers should treat motorcyclists like any other road user, leaving them plenty of space when overtaking or driving behind them.

Motorcyclists, on the other hand, should try and make themselves as visible as possible, using Hi-Vis vests and using their headlights always. They should also use correct clothing and helmets when driving.
