Motorcyclists are more vulnerable to injury from accidents than car drivers. Several factors contribute to this: their exposed position, lack of safety features on a motorcycle, the stability of the motorcycle and their lack of visibility mean motorcycles are more likely to be involved in an accident than cars. While accounting for a minority of traffic, motorcyclists account for a significant proportion of Road Traffic Accidents.

The majority of motorcycle accidents arise from the motorbike not being seen in time. Drivers instinctively look for drivers and pedestrians, and fail to take account of the possibility a motorcyclist may be on the road also. A large proportion of accidents involving motorcycles take place near junctions and roundabouts.
Motorcycles are also more vulnerable to the conditions on the road. Potholes, ice, loose gravel and even debris from other accidents are hazardous to motorcycles in a way that they are not to cars. If you are involved in a motorcycle accident that was caused by dangerous road conditions, you may be able to make a claim against the company or authority that was responsible for the area of road on which the accident happened.
As well as compensation for your injuries you may be able to seek compensation for damage to your bike or other possessions, loss of earnings arising from the injury and any care you require as a result of the accident.
