Pillion Passenger Accident Case Studies
Case one – lost control while braking
Ms R was riding as a pillion passenger on the back of a motorcycle. The bike approached a left hand bend on a 30mph road too fast for the wet conditions. The motorcyclist overbraked, the front wheel locked and the bike overturned. Ms R was thrown from the bike and onto the road, colliding with protective barriers at the side. She suffered a serious leg injury in the accident.
“After a traumatic accident I needed my claim to be stress-free”
Ms R had reservations about claiming, but was suffering financially from being unable to work for months. Our team fought hard and got her £15,250, the maximum compensation available.

Case three – rear end collision
Ms G was travelling as the pillion passenger on a motorcycle as the bike approached a busy junction. The motorcyclist had not seen the stationary queue of traffic in time, and despite braking hard, crashed into the back of a car. Ms G suffered a neck injury in the impact from the pillion position.
“I was surprised at how easy you made everything”
Because Ms G suffered injury in an accident that was not her fault, she decided to claim compensation. After contacting our team she received £3,100.
