Motorbike Accident Case Studies

Our specialist motorbike accident claim solicitors have handled thousands of claims and have the experience you need to ensure a prompt recovery from your injuries with the right amount of compensation. Some examples of previous cases appear below.

Car pulling out of side road colliding with motorbike

Unfortunately this is one of the most common accidents. We all know that motorbikes do not stand out as well as their four wheeled friends. In this case our client was travelling along a main road within the speed limit. A car did not look properly and pulled out forcing the rider from his bike. He sustained various injuries including severe bruising to his leg and a soft tissue neck injury.

With early intervention we were able to recover compensation for his injuries, his motorbike replacement and damaged equipment.

Motorbike overtaking stationery or slow moving traffic

This is an incredibly common accident type and one which always leads to insurers claiming they can avoid paying compensation due to a well known case called Powell v Moody. If your solicitor is an expert personal injury solicitor they can overcome the insurers arguments very quickly.

In the case of Powell v Moody a motorbike was slowly overtaking a lorry which had waved a car on to pull out in front of him on the main road. As the car pulled across the front of the lorry to turn in front of it the motorbike collided with it. The judge in that case concluded that the motorbike rider must be incredibly careful when overtaking when he cannot see what is in front of him. Whilst insurance companies will always quote the Powell v Moody case as a defence to a claim it normally does not prevent a claim being made. If a bike is overtaking traffic, unless it is a lorry the rider can normally see ahead and assess what is happening. If someone pulls out quickly it is not the motorcyclists fault if they collide with them.
