#1 Rural motorcycling collisions, case studies and case Law.

Brenda Mitchell, founder and Senior Partner at Motorcycle Law Scotland discusses the typical motorcycling related incidents which occur in a rural environment. These include incidents at junctions, due to speed, involving tractors/farm animals and a range of road surface defects such as mud on the road, reinstatement and surface dressing. She also answers a range of questions from the audience including the role of the Police at an RTC, advanced riding and Government incentives, use of webcam footage by the Police.

#2 Road surface defects, case studies and case law.

This is No #2 of 8 webinars looking at all aspects of motorcycling collisions, compensation and Civil Law. In this video, Roz Boynton, MLS's Aberdeen based Lawyer, talks about road surface defects as potential hazards for motorcyclists. She discusses a number of different cases where motorcyclists have come off their bikes and been injured due to potholes, surface dressing, localised chippings from jet patching and also diesel spills. She also provides answers to a wide range of questions posed by webinar attendees both before and during the webinar.

#3 Motorcycle collisions at junctions - case studies and case law.

In this 3rd of 8 webinars in the MLS Webinar Series, Thomas Mitchell, specialist motorcycling Lawyer and keen motorcyclist, takes a look at motorcycling collisions at junctions. Motorcyclists injured due to incidents occurring at or near junctions represent the largest percentage of personal injury cases we deal with. Thomas draws on some case studies of clients who have been represented by Motorcycle Law Scotland lawyers and explains in detail what happened and how and why we were successful. He also discusses case law namely, Hernandez v Acar, Harding v Hinchcliffe and Hamilton v O'Kane and Another to illustrate how the courts have viewed and apportioned blame to motorcyclist and/or driver respectively.

#4  Filtering motorcycling collisions through the ages - case law and case studies

Brenda Mitchell, founder and Senior Partner at MLS, takes a look at filtering decisions made in the Courts through the ages. She refers to the Highway Code, Motorcycle Road Craft and IAM advice on filtering. She uses an Aberdeen based case study to highlight how MLS will fight to ensure that motorcyclists are properly represented in these cases when presented with supportive evidence. Whilst filtering is perfecting legal, it can present a variety of dangers in different circumstances. So, if in doubt, don't do it.

#5 Motorcycling Collisions at roundabouts and the MIB

Roz Boynton, MLS Aberdeen based solicitor, takes a look at the common types of motorcycling incidents we see occurring at roundabouts. She discusses a number of case studies and case law and also talks about the MIB (Motor Insurers' Bureau) and their schemes for untraced and uninsured drivers/vehicles. Finally she deals with a number of questions from the viewers but is stumped by the question on Turbo roundabouts!
