It’s possible that if you live in Highgate, you find getting around by motorbike an easy way of negotiating the congestion we have on the roads. Unfortunately, even the most seasoned motorbike riders can have accidents through no fault of their own. If this is true of you, or if you have been injured in any other type of accident which was not your fault, in the last three years, you may be looking for an accident solicitor in Highgate in the phone book. Alternatively you might have been searching online for an accident solicitor in Highgate.
Unfortunately, although motorbikes only make up 1% of the traffic on roads in the UK, statistics show that motorbike accidents make up 18% of serious injuries and fatalities on our roads. Bikers are 40% more likely to die in an accident than a motorist.
You should always wear fluorescent clothing when riding a motorbike, and you should pay attention at all times to what is happening around you, especially when you are at a junction.
You should drive more slowly in bad weather and drive at a sensible speed at all times. If you were exceeding a speed limit when an accident occurred, it could be seen as your fault, and you would not have good grounds for a compensation case.
Of course, motorists can be careless, so you should take care when driving your bike past a parked car as all too often motorists get out of cars without checking to see if there is a bike passing them. If this happened to you then you could claim compensation because the motorist was negligent.
Despite wearing helmets and other protective clothing, you can still suffer very serious injuries if you come off your bike. Injuries range from less serious ones to brain damage, and this can be caused even if you were wearing a helmet.
