Motorcycle accident rates on the decrease

Relatives of a motorbiker seriously injured in a motorcycle accident last September have said they are intending on making a compensation claim for his personal injuries.

The 62-year-old biker was returning from work on his motorbike when he was in collision with a car which did not spot him.

After the accident, the driver of the vehicle was handed a £100 fine, ordered to pay £30 costs and a £15 victim surcharge, as well as losing her licence for a year.

Following the verdict at Leicester magistrates' court on February 9th 2010, the man's family have told the press that they wish to lodge a claim for motorcycle crash compensation.

The biker is still in hospital and has been paralysed due to the injuries he suffered in the crash. He also sustained a broken back, two broken collar bones, a broken shoulder blade and kidney failure as well as internal bleeding as a result of the accident.

Encouragingly, Department for Transport statistics released earlier this month revealed a 10% fall in serious and fatal motorcycle accidents compared with the year before.
