    Expert claim lawyers in Mountain Ash


    Personal Injury Solicitors in Mountain Ash

    Mountain Ash, like many areas of Wales, has wonderful roads for motorbiking. Riders travel from far and wide to enjoy the thrill of the mountain roads, just as they do for country roads and to attend large meetings of motorbikers. Not all riders have motorbikes for pleasure though, for some of them it is a cheaper way of commuting to and from their job, than the cost of running a car. Whatever reason they ride a motorbike, they all have one thing in common, they are very vulnerable to accidents, and to sustaining serious injuries in them. If the accident they are injured in, was the fault of someone else, they should be talking to expert claim lawyers in Mountain Ash about compensation claims.

    Ways for motorbike riders to reduce their risk of serious injury

    It is very hard to avoid an accident that is not your own fault, but motorbike riders can reduce the severity of their injuries by:

    • Wearing a good quality, well fitting helmet. Helmets are a legal requirement in the UK and they reduce the risk of head injuries by 50%. Still 80% of motorbike deaths are because of injuries to the brain.
    • Wearing leather clothing. Leather is a very hardy material and if a biker slides down the road after a fall from their bike, the leather will help reduce the severity of road rash.
    • Leather boots and gloves will help protect the feet and hands.

    Motorbikes make up just under 2% of the traffic on our roads, but are involved in 20% of the accidents. Most of them are caused by other road users not being aware of them, or by potholes and bad road surfaces.

    Getting the best legal representation – expert claim lawyers in Mountain Ash at Accident Advice Helpline

    When someone is injured in an accident on our roads, the police should be called to the scene. A complaint from many bikers who have been in this situation is that the police assume the accident must have been the biker’s fault. This might have been the case many years ago, but these days the training to ride a bike is very tough, and the riders much more skilled.

    If you find that you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, and possibly your pillion passenger as well, you need the best legal representation around, and should get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline for assistance with your personal injury claim.
