There’s a certain rugged romance about the motorcycle. Some say it’s the speed, not just moving quickly but feeling the wind confirm it as it blasts past you. Others would claim the noise is more important, that no radio will beat the roar of an engine right underneath you. Whatever the reason, one thing is clear: the bond between rider and machine is an especially strong one.
You have to admit: there’s something special about a motorcycle ride, a feeling of exhilaration that no average motorist can understand. It’s just rider and bike, no distractions, no restrictions, feeling every acceleration, every banking turn and burst of power.
Unfortunately, they are also vulnerable to every mistake made by their larger counterparts on the road. A trivial fender-bender for a motorist just means a visit to the workshop, but it can spell major disaster for the motorcycle rider, who is protected by little more than leather and a fibreglass helmet.
Given the statistics for motorcycle accidents, it’s not hard to see why a motorcyclist would be prudent to have a motorcycle claims solicitor like Romain Coleman on their checklist.
In a crash between a motorcycle and a car, particularly where a car pulls out in front of the motorcycle, the motorist may try to evade liability by suggesting that the motorcycle was speeding. All too often though, the driver has simply failed to check for the motorcycle and was caught by surprise only when the collision occurs. They then self-servingly attribute the accident to speeding on the motorcycle’s part.
Throw into the mix an insurance company who wants to avoid a big payout, and it becomes a case of ‘he says, she says’. Unfortunately for the motorcyclist, they are often in a poor position to fight their case, as they tend to suffer more grievous injuries than their car driving counterpart.
Faced with the anguish of a loved one left incapacitated by the accident, for many families a legal fight seems like another problem that should be avoided. When looking at the potential court hearings, the efforts of adversarial insurance companies and legal representatives, it can seem easier to let it go. But it’s not fair, and we don’t believe accident claims should be like this.
