Pillion Passengers

Get In Touch Today

If you were riding pillion on a motorcycle during a road accident, you may be able to make a compensation claim. The area of pillion passenger compensation claims is very complicated, so speaking to experienced personal injury solicitors is essential following a motorcycle accident.

Many pillion passenger accidents are caused by negligence on behalf of the motorcyclist. If you want to find out whether you are likely to succeed in your compensation claim, consider the following:

  • Could you reach the footrests easily?
  • Were you wearing a helmet that had been approved by the British Standards Authority?
  • Was the motorbike fitted with a pillion seat?
  • Had you and the motorcyclist agreed upon a means of communication while on the vehicle?
  • Had the motorcyclist ensured you were adequately aware of the risks that riding pillion entails?
  • Was the driver a qualified motorcyclist?
  • Could their vehicle legally carry pillion passengers?

If the answer to any of the above questions is ‘no’, then the motorcyclist could be deemed to have failed in their duty of care towards you and you could be eligible to make a compensation claim. Speak to our solicitors in Lancashire, solicitors in Preston, solicitors in Manchester, Solicitors in Liverpool, Solicitors in Birmingham, solicitors in Leicester, Solicitors in London, Solicitors in Newcastle, Solicitors in Cardiff, Solicitors in Blackburn or solicitors in Burnley to find out how much you could get.

Alternatively, another road user or poor highways management could have been responsible for the road accident that you were involved in. If you were in any kind of pillion accident that wasn’t your fault, make a no-win no-fee compensation claim today!
