Been injured in a motorcycle accident? Call the injury lawyers in Wem to make a personal injury claim
Motorbikes offer riders the freedom and speed which is difficult to obtain when driving any other vehicle. In addition, motorbikes offer a relatively cost effective and accessible means of getting around easily, avoiding the congestion of long tailbacks and hold ups on the road networks.
However, riding a motorbike means that you are by its very design, more vulnerable to being injured should you become involved in a road traffic collision. A motorbike is designed with speed and aerodynamics in mind, not user safety features such as impact protection and crumple zones.
If you are a novice motorcyclist, then you may reduce the likelihood of being involved in an accident by following a few simple tips:
- obtain some training prior to purchasing your first bike. Dealerships offer discounted training courses and you will gain experience and confidence about biking out on your own
- purchase some good quality leathers to protect yourself from the weather, the road surface and the elements that biking throws at you such as grit and flies.
- buy a decent, new helmet that fits correctly and is securely fastened. Don’t be tempted to buy a second hand helmet, as they are rarely a good fit and may have been involved in an accident already. Make sure you buy it from a reputable dealer as there are many fakes on the market,
- get quotes for insurance and check that you have adequate legal cover and accidental cover in case the worse happens
- wear decent biking boots with a sturdy heel and sole to help with gear changing and to maintain your balance whilst biking
- don’t be tempted to ride a bike that is too powerful for your abilities or experience as it could result in losing control and causing an accident
