Road traffic accidents involving motorbikes (RTAs) are one of the most common types of road accidents. This may be due to the fact that people are driving cars or bikes that they are not used to, or they are unfamiliar with the roads. Often, accidents are caused by the negligence of another driver who may be speeding, or not looking properly because they are distracted by passengers, loud music, or talking on their mobile phone. If you’ve been involved in a road traffic accident in Lasswade, and it wasn’t your fault, you could claim compensation with a specialist injury claims solicitor in Lasswade.

Other possible causes of road traffic accidents include poor maintenance, oil spills, debris in the road, icy surfaces or even alcohol consumption or drug abuse.

If a biker has suffered an injury, of any nature, then it is absolutely vital that the helmet is not removed from the head. This is very important, as it is difficult to ascertain if the biker has sustained head or neck injuries in the accident, and removing the helmet may cause further, and irreparable, neural damage. However, there is an exception to this rule! If the casualty has stopped breathing or gone into cardiac arrest, then you should remove the helmet carefully in order to perform normal CPR.

If you witness a motorbike accident, it is important that you establish if the scene is safe before doing anything else. Turn off engines and switch on hazard lights to warn other motorists. Don’t put yourself at risk by tending to injured people if it is dangerous to do so. Call the emergency services and reassure the casualties that they are on their way.

If the casualty is unconscious, it is important, if it is safe to do so, to check that their Airway is open, that they are Breathing and that you check their Circulation. Remember ABC, as it is an important part of emergency first aid and can save lives!
