Expert injury lawyers in Plungar love their motorbikes
The number of motorbikes on UK roads has steadily increased over the last few years and they now account for 1% of all road traffic, but unfortunately they account for 20% of death and serious injuries on the roads. The motorbike rider is 40 times more likely to die than the car driver – they do not have the protection of the metal bubble around them to save them from serious injuries and the need to use expert injury lawyers in Plungar.
A motorbike accident that was not your fault may need expert injury lawyers in Plungar
There are several reasons why you may come off your bike and have to make a personal injury claim, these include:
- Drivers not being aware of riders
- Bad road surfaces
- Oil or mud on the road
- Rider error
- Car doors being opened onto you
Many bike riders are car drivers and it is generally accepted that they are safer road users because on a motorbike you have to be much more aware of other traffic. They take this awareness into their cars and become better drivers. But whether the cause of the accident you were inured in was a driver or a motorbike rider, you may be able to use injury lawyers in Plungar to make a personal injury compensation claim.
The resulting injuries
There are countless injuries you could have, but some of the more common ones are:
- Back and spinal injuries
- Head injuries
- Broken bones
- Road rash
- Bikers arm
Assuming the motorbike rider survives the accident, they may want to use injury lawyers in Plungar. If they do not survive, it should be the bereaved family who make contact with Accident Advice Helpline.
