Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents may result in severe physical injuries, including fatalities. This is due to the motorbike rider’s vulnerability on the road and the absence of any protection other than appropriate motorcycle clothing.
Motorcycle Personal Injury claims have been more widespread in recent years, particularly in Dublin, as the number of motorcycle riders has risen. Motorcyclists have risen in number as a result of increasing traffic, and it is typically regarded a faster means of transit than driving a vehicle.
What to do if you are involved in a motorbike accident
If you are the victim of a motorbike accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to Motorcycle Personal Injury compensation for your injuries.
Motorbike accidents result in far more severe injuries than other forms of motor vehicle accidents, and as a consequence, the compensation given for injuries experienced in a motorcycle accident is often greater.
The following is a non-exhaustive list of the items you should attend to if you are involved in a motorbike accident and file a compensation claim:
Obtain immediate information on the other drivers involved in the accident, their cars, and their insurance information.
- Contact the Gardai immediately and request that they visit the accident site.
- If there are any witnesses to the collision, you should get their contact information.
- You should seek medical assistance promptly and keep track of any doctors you see.
- Keep any receipts for medical visits, prescriptions, and medicines.
- Consult Sherlock and Co Solicitors, who will assist you in preparing your claim for submission to the Injuries Board.
Motorcycle accidents may result in a variety of injuries.
Motorcycle accidents may result in both physical and psychological injuries. If you have suffered bodily or psychological damage, you may be entitled to compensation.
Psychological injuries are prevalent among Motorcycle Personal Injury Claimants engaged in motorcycle accidents, owing to the force of the hit and the motorbike rider’s lack of protection.
Motorcycle accidents might result in claims for nerve shock, post-traumatic stress disorder, and/or other psychological disabilities.
Psychological injuries might manifest themselves in the aftermath of a motorbike accident via insomnia, anxiousness, impotence, loss of confidence, nightmares, and panic attacks.
Physical injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents are often more severe due to the force of the crash.
Motorcycle accidents often result in head and brain injuries, soft tissue injuries and bruises, fractured bones, facial injuries, fatal injuries, amputation of limbs, spinal injuries, and the normal joint injuries to the neck, shoulder, back, arm, and legs.
