Type of claim

Motorbikes are vulnerable roads users, which means that if involved in a road traffic accident, they are more likely to be seriously injured or killed. Cars and other motor vehicle users should be significantly careful around motorbikes and other vulnerable road users. If you have been hurt in a road traffic accident as a motorcyclist, we highly advise you to contact one of our experienced solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side Scotland. We will ensure you get the highest compensation for your case in the most stress-free and easy way.

Why are motorbikes vulnerable? 

There is a range of reasons why motorbikes are more vulnerable on the roads than other road users; these include:

  • They are harder to be seen, they are smaller on the roads, and motor vehicle users usually fail to check for their presence when on the roads.
  • They lack exterior protection, which means they are more likely to be hurt on the roads if involved in a road traffic accident.
  • They are more likely to be affected by road conditions. Bad weather conditions can be more dangerous for motorbikes. Moreover, motorbikes are more likely to swerve to the centre of the road to avoid any dangers on the road.

If you have been involved in a road traffic accident are a motorcyclist, we highly advise that you contact one of our experienced solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side Scotland.

What causes road traffic accidents involving motorbikes? 

There’s a range of things that can cause motorbike accidents among road users in Scotland. However, the most common ones include:

  • Other motor vehicle users failing to see motorbikes due to their size. That can cause accidents, especially at junctions and roundabouts when motor vehicle drivers pull out in front of motorcycles causing them to swerve or crash.
  • Motorbikes should always be left the same amount of space as any other road user. If the road users fail to provide adequate space, it can cause road traffic accidents. If the motorbike swerves onto the road due to hazards on the road and other roads users fail to leave them enough space or try to overtake them without leaving adequate space, it can lead to road traffic accidents.
  • Conditions of the road can be a cause of motorbike accidents, dangerous conditions and potholes can cause road traffic accidents involving motorbikes. It is the local authority’s responsibility to ensure that roads are kept in a good condition, and any complaints of hazards are dealt with in a good time.

However, the list of causes of road traffic accidents can be never-ending. If you have been involved in a motorbike accident, we highly advise that you contact one of our experienced solicitors at Solicitors On your Side Scotland. We will ensure your process is as easy and stress-free as possible, enabling you to come out with the best possible outcome for your case, so you can get back to your daily life in no time.
