    Injury claim in Penicuik

    Have you been injured in a motorcycle accident?

    Motorcycles are being more popular, partly because they are so much cheaper to run than a car. If you need a vehicle for commuting, a motorbike can be a good option. There are many thousands of motorbike riders who travel on them every day and have no problems at all. But just sometimes, one is involved in an accident. Riders are very vulnerable in an accident situation, as they do not have the protection a car provides. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, and it was not your fault, you could be entitled to make an injury claim in Penicuik, or wherever else in the UK you are located.

    Reducing the risk of injury from a motorbike accident

    There are a few things riders can do to help reduce the risk of serious injury if they are involved in an accident, such as:

    • It is a legal requirement to wear a helmet when riding. Make sure yours is a good fit and good quality. Never use a second hand helmet or one that has been dropped. This can damage the integrity of the helmet. It is worth buying your helmet from a reputable dealer, as there are many fakes on the market.
    • There are lots of different clothing items you can buy for riding, but the sturdiest of them all is leather. This will give more protection against injuries like road rash, which is where the skin and flesh is ripped from your body as you slide along the road.
    • Good sturdy boots will help to protect your feet and ankles in an accident situation.

    Being properly dressed when riding can help to reduce your chance of suffering a serious injury in a motorbike accident, but still 80% of deaths from such accidents are because of the rider suffering head injuries.
