Due to the nature of motorcycle accident compensation claims, they tend to involve serious injuries.
Most tend to be collisions with cars but some are also due to defects in the road surface.

which means they are experienced in claiming compensation from vehicle drivers and local authorities.
If you have been involved in a motorbike accident, make sure you contact us as soon as possible
so that we can get you the compensation you deserve.
Once the collision has occurred, or the rider has lost control through some other mishap,
several common types of injury occur when the bike falls:
Concussion and brain damage, as the head violently contacts the ground.
Breakage of joints (elbows, shoulders, hips, knees and wrists), fingers, spine and neck, for the same reason.
The most common breakages on sportsbike riders are the shoulder and the pelvis.
Soft tissue (skin and muscle) damage (road rash) as the body slides across the surface at speed.
There is also a condition known as biker's arm, where the nerves in the upper arm are damaged during the fall,
causing a permanent paralysis of arm movement.
Facial disfigurement, if the unprotected face slides across the ground.
The likelihood of injury is extremely high in these motorcycle accidents.
98% of the multiple vehicle collisions and 96% of the single vehicle accidents resulted in some kind of injury
to the motorcycle rider; 45% resulted in more than a minor injury.
