Motorbikes are just one of the two-wheeled vehicles on our roads, there are cycles as well, and to some extent they both have the same problems. The riders of both of them are very vulnerable to accidents that were not their own fault, and to sustaining very serious injuries in those accidents.
They both have the right to compensation in this situation as well, and can make a personal injury claim in Elmbridge with the assistance of Accident Advice Helpline and our no-win, no-fee promise.
Personal injury claim in Elmbridge
Many of the accidents the two-wheeled riders are involved in are because other road users do not see them in time to stop. There is not a great deal they can do about this, except wear something bright to make them more visible, and hope that does the trick.
Potholes and bad road surfaces are another cause of accidents, and a personal injury claim in Elmbridge
Councils have time limits in which to repair potholes and bad road surfaces. Some of them are very good, and if they get a report about something they consider to be a danger to road users, arrange for the repair to be carried out within a couple of hours. Others are not quite so diligent, and if you are injured because a pothole or bad road surface has not been repaired, you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim in Elmbridge.
Hitting one of these when you are on two wheels can be far more serious than it sounds. Who knows what direction it will throw you, or where you will land.
The distractions that can cause road traffic accidents
Drivers get distracted very easily, and you sometimes see them doing the most stupid of things. Doing their hair, reading maps, talking on a mobile phone, adjusting their seat or trying to tune the radio are all things that will distract the driver when they should be concentrating.
