Accidents on a motorbike that warrant an injury claim Holcombe
The accidents that occur while you are a passenger on a motorbike are very severe and may include:
- Full body trauma – this can happen when someone is thrown from a motorbike and lands on the tarmac or pavement with their whole body. The result can be broken bones and internal bleeding, but sadly often results in death.
- Head trauma – this occurs when the head strikes the pavement or even a car and as a passenger, you may have this if you are thrown off the motorbike. As a passenger, you are actually in more danger than the driver, since you cannot prepare for a collision because it is almost impossible to see the road ahead, so ensure you have an injury claim in Holcombe as an option if you need it.
- Whiplash and other sudden stop injuries – whiplash is the result of a sudden stop that shocks the neck and head and upon collision, your whole body may actually receive a shock. This is because of the pressure of a fast moving vehicle being suddenly stopped and may cause some injuries that are permanent, such as brain damage and spinal damage.
While none of these scenarios should deter you from riding as a passenger on a motorbike, they should make you take a clear look at your options. Remember that even the best prepared motorbike driver cannot account for whatever else is going on on the road, so be prepared if you can. The easiest way to stay prepared? Know the number for the claims company that Esther Rantzen recommends, Accident Advice Helpline. This will give you some peace of mind in knowing that no matter what happens, you have a way of making an injury claim in Holcombe and possibly getting some form of compensation for what has occurred.
