Services provided by U.K Solicitors for Motorcycle Accident Claims

Motorcycle accidents have become more deadly on the U.K roads and accounts for 20% of the deaths due to accidents. Motorcycle riders make up only 1% of the traffic on the U.K roads, but a significant portion of motorcycle accidents are fatal in nature. There are also a significant percentage of motorcycle riders suffering serious injuries during such accidents. Personal injury solicitors in the United Kingdom help motorcycle riders to claim compensation available.

Motorcycle riders are exposed to different types of injuries from motorcycle accidents. Spinal and head injuries are the most common injuries sustained by motorcycle riders. There are also cases where riders have sustained fractures and broken bones resulting from motorcycle accidents. Other forms of motorcycle injuries include amputations, soft tissue injuries, whiplash and injuries resulting in mental and psychiatric disorders. These motorcycle injuries can be due to poor roads and spills from diesel tankers. Some accidents occur due to the potholes and bumpy surfaces on the roads.

Whatever be the type of injury or the reason for the accident, personal injury U.K lawyers help their injured clients to make a claim for the medical expenses incurred on diagnosing the actual problem or undergoing the required treatment and rehabilitation. Solicitors work with a number of injury care and physiotherapy clinics across the United Kingdom. The solicitors may also be able to get a replacement bike for the injured motorcycle rider. U.K Personal injury Solicitors do not usually take consultation charges if the claims made get rejected.

There have been several instances in the last few years where injured motorcycle riders have received compensation due to the efforts of experienced U.K personal injury solicitors. In December 2009, a firefighter from Durham got compensation of 8,000,000 pounds for injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident in 2002. The firefighter had lost one of his legs as a result of the accident. In another incident, a train driver was knocked off his motorbike in July 2006 by a car cutting across the road. The motorcycle rider was knocked off his bike and fell unconscious. The train driver had fractures on his shoulder blades, ribs, and right hand. Due to this accident, the train driver was asked to go on medical retirement. Thanks to the efforts of a person injury solicitor in United Kingdom, the train driver got a healthy compensation payout in November 2012.
