Injury Claim in the Isles of Scilly

0

You could well want to make a personal injury claim in the Isles of Scilly if you have had an accident on your motorbike that was not your own fault.

Motorbikes have become more popular over recent years, but unfortunately the riders and their pillion passengers are very vulnerable in an accident situation. They are so exposed when they are riding, and apart from what they are wearing have no protections at all.

What riders should wear to lessen their injuries and the chance of making a personal injury claim in the Isles of Scilly

Motorbike riders, and their pillions, have a legal requirement to wear a crash helmet, but they should make sure it fits them properly and is of good quality. Unless you know its history, it is not a good idea to buy a used one. With no visible marks on the outside, it could have been dropped, and this can mean it will no longer do its job properly.

A motorbiker’s helmet can be a lifesaver, and reduces the risk of head injuries by 50%. Even so, 80% of deaths among motorbikers are because of injuries to the head and brain.

With regard to protecting their bodies, hands and feet, the best thing for them to wear is leather. It is hardier than most other materials and can reduce the severity of injuries like road rash because it takes longer to tear and expose the bare flesh to the road.

They might not be able to avoid accidents that are caused by other people, but at least wearing the right gear can stand a chance of lessening the severity of any injuries they sustain.

Awareness to avoid a personal injury claim in the Isles of Scilly

Many of the accidents motorbikers are injured in are caused by other road users who say they do not see the motorbike until it is too late.

Generally, drivers in the UK are not as aware of motorbikes, or cycles, as they should be and they have to learn to share the road with them because they are not going to disappear. Motorbike riders are taught to be more aware as part of their training to ride a bike, and some people think this makes them better car drivers.
