Motorbike Accident Claims

In the last few years, the number of bike accidents has rapidly increased, which is a scary statistics, as it also leads to increase in the number of deaths and serious injuries. Approximately 75% of these accidents are the results of collision with other vehicles, may it be another bike, a car, bus or a lorry. Others include accidents when the motorcyclists negotiate the road curves at higher speeds and under-corner, when they fail to see objects on the road, when they ride after consuming alcohol or drugs or when they do not maintain their bike properly and have problems like flat tyres. Accidents caused due to bad weather accounts for just 2%, which is a surprising fact. A male biker of age between 16 to 24 years is the most likely victim of a motorcycle accident, 50% of these bikers have below 5 months of biking experience.

Most bike riders get injured when they hit something, leave the bike and strike on the ground. The injuries can be just bruising and scratches, and may also include internal injuries and broken bones for which the injured person has to stay in a hospital for some time and then recover at home. If the accident was due to none of the injured person’s fault, then he or she has all the civil and legal right to apply for motor bike accident claims. The compensation claim that the injured person is entitled to get depends upon his or her injuries, loss of income and the medical bills. The injured person can claim for the physical injuries as well as psychological injury like post-traumatic stress, financial losses included prescription expenses and expenses for the repair of the bike and legal costs. Damages to the clothing, the bike and the helmet may also be compensated in some cases. In order to file a claim, the injured person should have sufficient evidences in his or her support. Therefore, it is better to prepare a list of the damaged articles in the accident, and take pictures of the site of the bike accidents if possible, so that the injured party can produce a clear record of the happenings.
