Motorcycling Accidents

As a motorcyclist, you have a statistically higher chance of being involved in a road traffic accident. 

Unfortunately, you also have a higher chance of sustaining serious injury because you're not afforded the same protection as car drivers. 

If you've been in a motorcycle accident, you're likely to be frustrated because the accident was probably caused by the person in the motor vehicle. 

There are also a few accidents where one party is more responsible for the accident than the other and if liability is denied, the only way to establish fault is to show exactly what happened during the accident which is where Motorcycle Law Scotland can be of invaluable assistance.
