There are many different types of road traffic accidents on our roads, some of them involve cars, some of them involve buses or lorries and some of them involve motorbikes. Motorbikes these days are more than a hobby, there are many riders who have taken to them for commuting because they cost so much less than a car to run. But the riders are vulnerable in accidents, and sometimes they make a personal injury claim in East Lindsey.
The precautions riders can make to try and avoid making a personal injury claim in East Lindsey
It is very hard to avoid an accident caused by someone else, but there are a few precautions riders can take to try and reduce the risk of serious injuries if they are in an accident that was not their fault.
The first and most important thing is that they wear a well fitting good quality helmet. They should always buy their helmet from a reputable dealer, because a good one reduces the risk of head injury by a whopping 50%. There are many fakes on the market though, and they could save a few pound, but lose their life.
They should always discard a helmet if it has been dropped, as this compromises its integrity, just like they should never buy a second hand helmet because they do not know its history.
Leather clothing is another good idea because leather is so much hardier then other material. If a rider comes off their bike and slides down the roads, the amount of road rash they have will be much less if they are wearing leather than if, for instance, they were wearing denim.
The wise rider will also wear good boots and gloves to protect their hands and feet.
