If you’re looking for motorcycle accident statistics, you can find them on the Direct.Gov website, as well as on Accident Advice Helpline’s website. For example, did you know that motorcyclists are 38 times more likely to be killed in a road traffic accident than people travelling in a car? Or that 30 motorcyclists are injured or killed at junctions in the UK every day? Most of us are aware of the dangers of riding a motorcycle, but unfortunately no matter how careful you are, you could still be injured due to somebody else’s negligence.
What can motorcycle accident statistics tell us?
Motorcycle accident statistics can reveal how risky it is to be a motorcyclist in the UK, as well as tell us how safe our roads are. Although road safety is improving, there is still a lot more to be done to prevent accidents from happening, and educating drivers of other vehicles plays a large part in this. With the majority of motorcycle accidents happening at junctions, it’s clear that drivers need to pay more attention to checking their mirrors and looking out for motorcycle riders when turning or pulling out.
If you’ve been injured at a junction, or knocked off your bike on a road in the UK, you may have been seriously injured. But even if you have escaped with minor injuries such as broken bones or whiplash, Accident Advice Helpline could still help you to claim personal injury compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings.
Motorbikes don’t have to be dangerous
Wearing the right protective gear can go a long way to keeping you safe on a motorcycle, as can taking advanced courses in road safety and riding. But ultimately your accident could be caused by another driver, which is why it’s important to be so aware of other road users when you are on your bike. If you have been injured and somebody else caused your accident, you deserve to be compensated, no matter how minor your injuries.
