Bike couriers are faced with many potential dangers on the roads everyday, and it is the responsibility of all drivers to obey the rules of the road to reduce the risk of an accident.
Unfortunately, even though couriers may abide by all the rules and drive safely, they can still be involved in serious accidents when other drivers fail to do so. Especially in the event of a collision, couriers can be grievously injured, as they have so little available in the way of protection.
Even those wearing helmets and the correct protective, reflective gear can suffer injuries such as whiplash, concussion, broken bones, road rash, and more serious injuries affecting the spinal cord. The recovery period for these sorts of injuries can be prolonged and intense, often leaving those who have been injured struggling to make ends meet financially during this time.
