Had an Accident Involving Filtering?

 The ability to filter through those frustrating traffic jams is one of the many benefits to riding a motorcycle. Despite this, it can be a dangerous maneuver. It can be performed unsafely by riders, however it is a much more common occurrence for drivers to collide with a motorcyclist who is legally filtering. 

Drivers don’t see motorbikes on a regular basis, so they can find it even more difficult if a motorbike is in the process of filtering.

We work hard to understand the biker’s point of view, and how they see biking as a way of life. We also know that bikers are at risk more than any other road users. Our dedicated team are here to use their knowledge and advise you on your options. We are proud to work with a number of different medical professionals, all of whom can offer further help in any necessary rehabilitation efforts, along with any other significant losses.

    If the motorist involved does not provide their name and address, they have to report the accident. If they fail to adhere to their responsibility under the Road Traffic Act, they are committing an offence.

    It is crucial that you take relevant details from any witnesses in the case of the other road user(s) involved in the accident deciding to leave the scene without stopping.

    Other results are possible with motorcycle filtering claims. Riders can be found to be partially at fault. This is rare and wouldn’t stop you making a claim.

    The only way to really find out if you have a case for a claim and who was at fault, is by seeking out expert advice from seasoned professionals – somethings MACS is built on.
