Motorcycle crash claim for family of rider who died in accident

The family of a man who sustained fatal personal injury in a road traffic accident in October 2010 in Anglesey, in Wales, may be able to make a motorcycle crash claim for their loss.

The incident occurred on the A5025 when an 85-year-old female driver, who had missed her turning twice due to poor signage, decided to make a U-turn.

Unfortunately she failed to check her blind spot before making the turn and did not have her car lights on despite it being dark enough for them to be needed, and this resulted in the 53-year-old motorcyclist colliding with her vehicle.

The biker was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Anglesey Council is reviewing the lighting of the bus stop, junctions and signs in the area of the crash in the hope that future fatalities will be avoided.

The driver was found liable for the accident after the deputy coroner stated, "I'm satisfied that the manner of his [the motorbike rider's] driving did not contribute to the collision," and noted the cause of his death as ‘accidental'.

The 85-year-old motorist was banned from driving for ten years and served with a two-year community sentence.

This means that if the victim's family want to make a motorcycle crash claim for their loss, as well as potential financial instability due to the loss of income to the household, they could contact a personal injury solicitor to pursue a claim.
