Have you been involved in a motorbike accident?
Although motorcycles are a popular form of transport, riders do need to be particularly careful on the roads. Unfortunately, motorbike accidents can be extremely serious and riders can experience traumatic injuries if they are involved in a collision.
As car drivers aren’t always aware of motorcyclists, they may not give way to them on the roads as they should. If a driver suddenly turns left, for example, and doesn’t check their mirrors first, they could easily collide with a bike.
Whilst most riders do wear safety equipment, this only offers limited protection and may not prevent them from being injured if an accident does occur. If you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident and you don’t believe you were at fault, you may be able to make an injury claim in Stoke Poges.
