If you have had an accident and been injured you may want to make an injury claim in Palnackle
There are more motorbikes on the UK roads than ever, they no account for 1% of all traffic. Unfortunately, they account for 20% of all accidents and as a motorbike does not give the protection a car does, the injuries tend to be more severe and may need an injury claim in Palnackle.
Almost 50% of accidents involving motorbikes also involve a car. This is mainly because car drivers are not aware enough of two wheeled vehicles and quite often do not see them until it is too late. The training to ride a motorbike includes a lot of awareness training and there is a school of thought that says car drivers should be taught the same, that motorbike riders actually make better car drivers because of it.
Another problem seems to be the large number of older riders. Not that older people should not be able to ride, but what happens is that they pass their motorbike tests in their twenties and then don’t ride again until they are maybe fifty. Their skills are rusty and the bikes a lot faster; it can take them a little time to get back into riding safely.
The dire consequences of a motorbike accident
Firstly, lets hope the rider survives the accident, they are 40 times more likely to die than a car driver. Assuming they do, there are many injuries they could sustain, just a few of them being:
- Broken Bones
- Road Rash – this is where the rider slides along the road and removes skin and flesh from his body
- Bikers Arm – motorbikes are heavy and if they fall onto the rider in the accident, can crush the arm
- Head and brain injuries
- Back and spinal injuries
- Cuts and bruises
There are ways to reduce the risks
The motorbike rider can reduce the risk of the injury being quite so severe by wearing a well fitting good quality helmet, leathers, sturdy boots and biking gloves. If the helmet gets dropped or knocked, it should be discarded and replaced, as the integrity of it will be in doubt.
