Motorcycle Accident Claims

Motorcycle accident claims can seem hard to understand, but at Road Accident Helpline - a service provided by National Accident Helpline - we're here to make your claim as easy as possible.

Knowing your legal rights to compensation is a good first step when considering motorcycle accident claims. If you've been injured in an accident on your motorcycle, whether it was caused by another motorist or a fault in the road, you may be entitled to compensation.

The good news is you're in the right place - we're road accident claims specialists and we've been helping people like you with motorcycle accident claims for over 20 years.

This page gives you an introduction to preventing injuries in a motor cycle accident, as well as the guidance you need on making motorcycle accident claims.

Typical motorcycle injuries

Motorcycle accidents can lead to severe and long term injuries, such as;

  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Broken bones and joints
  • 'Biker's arm' - nerve damage or a limited range of movement caused by a fall
  • Road rash (which is only likely to occur if you do not wear appropriate heavy duty protective clothing)

Whatever your injury, if you've been injured in an accident that wasn't your fault, we're here to help.

Preventing injuries

Not riding in dangerous weather conditions, wearing reflective clothing, and checking all lights are working can help avoid the accident in the first place, and the appropriate safety equipment is clearly important for those unlucky to be involved in an accident:

  • Always choose a certified helmet - it's estimated that up to 50 lives could be saved if motorcyclists wore the safest helmets available. The Department for Transport's Safety Helmet Assessment and Rating Programme (SHARP) scheme is a great place to start when choosing a helmet.
  • Wear armoured protective clothing (including gloves). Protection should focus on areas that are most at risk in a fall, including shoulders, elbows and knees.
  • Buying second hand protective clothing isn't advisable, as it may no longer provide the protection you need.
