Because of the cost of owning and running a car, the environmental factors, and the fact that some people just prefer them to cars, more and more people are now using motorbikes and scooters as their main form of transport.
Sadly, as the number of bikers rises, so does the number of accidents involving bikers.
Without the protection of a car around them, the road can be a much more dangerous place for bikers, and even the smallest of accidents could be made much more severe simply by having a bike involved.
The further fact is that many accidents involving bikes are not the fault of the driver of the bike, and if you have been injured in a motorbike accident which was not your fault then you have the right to make a compensation claim in Stobo. Such a compensation claim could not only help to provide recompense for your pain and suffering but could also help with the cost of medical treatment, loss of earnings as you recover and replacing your bike.
Many roads are designed with the needs of much heavier vehicles in mind. However, the introduction of buses and lorries means that the road surfaces have also become much more unsafe. Factor in drivers of larger vehicles who either don’t see a biker or fail to drive safely in the presence of a bike and cause an accident, and the roads can be a very dangerous place for motorbike riders.
Sadly, even the legal precautions such as adhering to the speed limit, driving carefully and wearing safety clothing such as a helmet and leathers don’t offer a total protection and bike riders are much more likely to sustain severe physical injuries as the result of an accident.
Even if the accident in question is relatively minor, it is still advisable for any rider who has come off their bike to seek medical attention. There could be breaks, bruising and even head injuries which may not be immediately apparent but still require fast action to prevent them becoming more severe.
Along with medical treatment, it’s likely that the victim of the accident may need time away from work as they recover, may need additional help with household chores as well as transportation and in some cases may have to reimagine their entire lifestyle to incorporate their injuries.
