    Injury Claim in Purbeck


    There are two main types of two wheeled vehicles on UK roads, cycles and motorbikes, and the riders of both are very vulnerable to serious injures if they are involved in an accident, because whichever type of bike they are on, they have so little protection. This is why so many of them are seriously injured in accidents that were not their fault, and why they are entitled to make a personal injury claim in Purbeck for compensation.

    The injuries that two wheeled riders are prone to

    The injuries sustained if you are on a two wheeled contraption tend to be of a more serious nature because the riders do not have the protection of the metal bubble of a car surrounding them.

    Motorbike riders and cycles are more likely to be killed in an accident than a car driver, and more likely to lose limbs or suffer brain injuries. The helmets they both legally have to wear do greatly reduce the risk of brain injuries, but still most of the deaths in accidents they are involved in, are from this type of injury.

    Riders have the right to make a personal injury claim in Purbeck

    It is a common misconception that most of the riders are at fault in an accident, and in fact the opposite is true. Many of the accidents are solo events, caused by potholes and bad road surfaces, and most of the others are caused by vehicle drivers who do not see the riders until it is too late to stop.

    In both of these situations the riders would be entitled to make a personal injury claim in Purbeck for compensation, either against the other driver or the local authority that should have repaired the road.

    Reducing the risk of a serious injury

    Riders can reduce the risk of serious injuries if they are in an accident by wearing the correct clothing. Good quality helmets that fit them well is the most important thing, but anything else that can help should also be worn. Motorbike riders should wear leather clothing, and cycle riders anything they can that gives protection. The other thing they should both do is try to wear something bright, as this will make them more visible to other road users.

    Making a claim for two wheeled riders

    The problem both cyclists and motorbikers have, is proving they were not to blame for the accident. They need the best legal representation to help them o this, and to get the compensation they are legally entitled to and deserve.
