Motorcycle Injuries

Thousands of motorcyclists are injured every year in Australia, usually as a result of collisions with other vehicles. If the driver of the other vehicle is at fault in the accident, the motorcycle rider is in a strong legal position to claim damages for injuries and financial losses. In addition to third party driver negligence another cause of motorcycle accidents is defective road surfaces where the individual, organization, company or authority responsible for obstruction or damage may be held liable if they have failed to take reasonable care.

The ability to recover damages in a personal injury claim has a statutory time limit. If the injury is serious or if the defendant denies liability, preparations to enforce your legal rights can be lengthy. If you decide to make a claim for personal injury it is important that you move as quickly as possible to contact a motorbike accident solicitor so that the facts of the case can be determined in good time without the risk of exceeding the limitation period.

Your motorbike accident solicitor will investigate all of the circumstances surrounding the accident and will advise you on liability and the strength of your case together with an estimate of the award of damages. Time is of the essence and you should contact one of our motorbike accident solicitors promptly if you or a family member has been injured in a motorcycle accident and wish to make a claim.

Award of Damages

The victim of an accident who has suffered a personal injury can recover damages which have two basic categories :-

  1. Assessed damages include compensation for pain and suffering for both physical & mental trauma in addition to compensation for any detrimental change in lifestyle

  2. Calculated damages represent compensation that can be accurately determined on a mathematical basis and include loss of wages, medical expenses, care, general expenses and damage to personal property

Contributory Negligence

In addition to preventing or reducing the severity of injury, the fact that a motorcycle rider was wearing adequate protective gear at the time of an accident can help to ensure receipt of full compensation. It will aid in preventing the negligent third party drive from arguing that you were partly to blame for your injuries because you were negligent in not taking proper measures to protect yourself. This is known as contributory negligence. It is a legal concept utilised by defendants to get the claimant’s award reduced by attempting to prove that the claimant is partially to blame for the incident and/or their injuries.
