Type of claim

Motorbike riders rely on good road conditions to ensure their safe journeys. If they experience hazards on the way, they may be involved in an accident that wasn’t their fault. If you were involved in a road traffic accident due to road conditions, contact our experienced personal injury solicitors now. Due to the nature of motorcycles, they are more dependent on good quality, maintained surfaces to keep a tight grip on the roads and remain in control of the vehicle. 

It is usually the local authorities’ duty of care to ensure that roads are kept in a good condition, if they fail to do so, and motorcycle riders are in a road traffic accident, they are eligible to claim compensation for the negligence of the council. 

Types of hazards on the roads for motorbikes

There is a range of things that can affect the condition of the roads and therefore cause road traffic accidents. Whilst some road conditions may be caused by nature, others may be caused due to poor maintenance of the roads by the councils, other motorists and companies. 

The most common examples of hazards on the road include: 

  • Potholes
  • Debris 
  • Poorly marked roads 
  • Lack of hazard signs 
  • Malfunctioning signs 
  • Poorly marked of protected roadworks
  • Construction site hazards
  • Standing water 
  • Obstructions of view 

If you have been involved in a road traffic accident due to road conditions; we highly advise you to contact one of our experienced personal injury solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side Scotland.

How to claim 

The Roads (Scotland) Act of 1984, Section 1, states that:

“A local roads authority shall manage and maintain all such roads in their area”.

If you were involved in a road traffic accident due to the road conditions, the first thing you must be able to do is to prove liability. You must be able to prove that the accident wasn’t caused by a fault of your own. It is also important to identify whose responsibility it is to keep the road to a good condition and prove they were negligent in keeping it to a safe standard.

After being involved in an accident due to road conditions; ensure that you and anyone else involved is safe and call any emergency services if it is necessary. After you have ensured everyone’s safety, make sure to gather as much evidence as possible, such as photos and videos of the conditions of the road, witness reports, dashcam and CCTV footage. 

Lastly, if you were involved in an accident due to road conditions, contact our experienced solicitors to start a successful personal injury claim, in the most stress-free and easy way.
