Experienced Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

At CLP Legal, we have significant experience representing motorcycle injury victims (including pillion passengers and moped riders). If you or a loved one have been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, we can help. 

With the number of registered motorcycle road users increasing yearly, the prevalence of vehicle accidents involving motorcyclists has increased. Motorcyclists have a higher chance of needing hospitalisation after an accident with another vehicle. In these multi-vehicle accidents, the most common types of crashes are same-direction accidents, where a motorcyclist is rear-ended or side-swiped. These types of accidents are especially prevalent in urban areas.

Being sent to the hospital after a motorbike or moped accident is only the start of a long journey for many victims. The length of injury recovery time, cost of medical expenses, and the risk of permanent disability are all higher for motorcyclists than other motor vehicle occupants. 

 CLP Legal understands how devastating and life-altering a motorcycle accident can be, so we work tirelessly to get riders and passengers the compensation they deserve for injuries, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.

Common Motorcycle Injuries

The types of injuries suffered by motorbike riders depend on factors such as rider experience, weather conditions, involvement of another vehicle or object, speed, and safety gear. Unfortunately, motorcyclists and pillion passengers are at risk of suffering severe to catastrophic trauma in the event of an accident.

Many motorcycle hospitalisations involve a collision with another vehicle, meaning most riders can claim for personal injury. However, compensation amounts may depend on who is at fault. The most common hospitalisation injuries suffered by riders include:

  • Whiplash and spinal damage
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Broken limbs and ribs
  • Internal organ damage
  • Burns, lacerations, and more minor injuries

Help with Delayed Pain Years After Car Accident

Get the Financial Help You Deserve After a Motorcycle Accident

In an accident, motorcycle riders are more likely to suffer multiple injuries across their body, meaning the cost of medical expenses such as specialist surgery, physiotherapy, and ongoing pain management are often high. The long recovery time for severe injuries can limit the victims’ ability to work, earn a living, and enjoy life. 

Depending on the circumstances, claiming personal injury compensation as a motorcycle rider can cover most of these costs associated with pain and psychological suffering. If you suffered injuries in a motorcycle accident, get in touch with us at CLP Legal, one of Perth’s leading motorcycle accident lawyers for expert advice on whether you qualify for these benefits and how you can claim them as soon as possible.  

Is Motorcycle Road Rash a Claimable Injury?

Road Rash is the common name given to the skin injuries most often suffered by motorcycle riders and pillion passengers when they come into contact with the road surface at speed. Usually considered a minor injury, road rash is not typically life-threatening. However, a medical professional should still examine and treat skin abrasions to reduce the risk of infection or scarring. 

These are some situations where road rash can become a severe injury: 

  • When multiple layers of skin are removed, causing deep wounds.
  • When the road temperature or friction causes burns.
  • When road rash burns cover a significant percentage of the body.
  • If debris such as glass or gravel becomes embedded in the skin. 

Legal Assistance for a Minor or Severe Road Rash

Severe road rash is very painful, often requiring hospitalisation and extensive treatment, such as surgical scrubbing (cleaning), stitches, or skin grafts. Most road rash injuries occur on the limbs and extremities, meaning victims may have reduced mobility while they recover. 

Have you suffered minor or severe road rash due to a motorcycle accident? You may be able to make a compensation claim for the treatment of your injuries, loss of wages, and pain and suffering you experienced. Get in touch with the motorcycle accident lawyers at CLP Legal to find out more. 

Important Information for Motorcycle Accident Claims

The benefits that motorcycle riders and passengers are entitled to can change depending on the circumstances of the accident. These factors may reduce the amount injured riders can claim:

  • If a helmet was not being worn while riding.
  • If the driver was speeding in the moments before the accident.
  • If the motorcyclist was partially at fault for the accident.
  • If the driver was under the influence. 

If any of these circumstances apply to you, it does not make you ineligible to claim compensation, but it does make your claim more complicated. CLP Legal, your trusted motorcycle accident lawyers is more than equipped to deal with any complicating factor to your motorcycle accident claim and can help you get the full benefits you are entitled to receive.
