Motorcycle riders are one of the most exposed on a road. They are more vulnerable during a road traffic accident compared to car drivers.
Did you know that the number of people killed in a motorcycle accident is approximately three times the number of fatalities in a cycle accident? The 2011 figures by the Department for Transport reveal that 362 motorbike riders were killed in an accident compared to 107 cyclists. A similar trend was noticed in the figures for those seriously injured. For motorcycle riders there were 5,247 casualties for 2011, while for pedal cyclists there were 3,085.
Most of the motorcycle accident compensation claims are ones where the motorcycle riders were hit by a car. A severe impact on the motorcycle by a car, lorry or truck can lead to serious or fatal injuries. A Department for Transport study into the motorcycle accidents conducted in 2004 reveals that other road users face a problem in perceiving approaching motorcycles.
