When the rider of motorbike is involved in a collision or falls off in other circumstances, even if it only at a relatively low speed, the injuries suffered are often extremely serious, or at worst, fatal.
In 2015, nearly a quarter of all fatalities on Queensland roads were motorbike related, with 971 motorcyclists hospitalised as a result of road accidents, accounting for 16% of all hospitalised road crash injuries.
If you have been injured in a motorbike accident which you believe has been caused by the fault of another party, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injury on the basis of negligence.
Even if you cannot prove fault on the part of another party, you may be entitled to make a claim for total and permanent disability, which is made against your superannuation fund.
It is important that you seek early legal advice regarding your potential entitlement to compensation. A motorbike accident lawyer from Stacks Law Firm can help you by explaining how the law operates in Queensland and what your potential entitlements may be.
