Bikers are one of the most vulnerable groups on the roads, so it stands to reason that they are involved in a higher rate of accidents. According to the RSA, you are three times more likely to be involved in an accident if you are on a motorbike. One of the most important things to do when you are involved in an accident is to get in touch with your solicitor straight away. At Rogers Solicitors, we can usually tell within one hour if you have a valid case.
One of the most common causes of an accident is when a motorbike tries to overtake a vehicle that is turning right. This means that the biker crashes straight into the car. Another main cause is when a motorcycle tries to overtake a vehicle and collides with oncoming traffic. Many accidents happen when a biker tries to take a corner and loses control. Where there is oncoming traffic, this can mean that the rider crashes right into them. The final most common motorbike accident is when a vehicle is turning onto a junction, does not see the bike and collides.
Whatever the reason for your accident, it is always worth seeing if you have a valid claim. Call Rogers Solicitors today to find out.
