Motorcycle Riders

Injured due to a motorcycle accident? The injury compensation lawyers at Fortitude Legal in Ballarat, Bendigo and Geelong can help.

Collisions involving motorcycles can be devastating, whether you are the rider or a pillion passenger. High speed collisions can produce the most catastrophic injuries, but it is also not uncommon for relatively low speed, or what may appear at first glance to be minor collisions to also be capable of producing serious injuries.

A myriad of factors come into play in any collision involving a motorcycle, including: speed and direction of travel, the make and model of the motorcycle, the weather conditions outside, the road conditions, the protective riding gear and helmet worn at the time and whether you are separated from your motorcycle upon impact.

The scheme surrounding transport accidents and your entitlements is complex and there are strict time limits that apply.  It is important that you get appropriate legal advice from the outset to ensure that your rights are protected.

We can help you navigate the scheme, maximise your entitlements and make the decisions that are right for your future.
