Dagnall is a village in Buckinghamshire. The place name is derived from the Old English for “Daegga’s Knoll”. In manorial rolls of 1196 it was listed as Dagenhale. The spelling Dagenhale appears in a legal record of 1450. Thomas Bradwater is listed as a husbandman of the place.
Buckinghamshire has some great roads for motorbike riders to enjoy themselves, but if they should come off their bike in an accident, no matter where it is in the UK, they are very vulnerable to injuries. If the accident was not their fault they may want to speak with injury solicitors in Dagnall about making a personal injury compensation claim.
Advice for bikers from injury solicitors in Dagnall
Motorbikes now account for 1% of all traffic on UK roads but unfortunately they are involved in 20% of deaths and serious injuries from accidents. The motorbike rider is 40 times more likely to die in an accident than a car driver.
There are a few precautions they can take to try and reduce the risk of injuries being so serious:
- They should wear a well fitting good quality helmet; full-faced ones give more protection. A good helmet can halve the chance of sustaining a head injury but still 80% of motorbike deaths are from head injuries.
- Leather trousers and jacket may be expensive but they do protect the skin and flesh from being ripped off in an accident. Leather is very tough and will give much more protection that a pair of denims.
- Good quality boots can save breaks in your feet.
- Leather gloves will give protection to your hands.
This might all sound very expensive, but if it is a matter of life or death, you will be glad you spent the cash to be as protected as possible. Make sure you buy all your motorbike gear from reputable dealers, as there are many fakes on the market, which will not help you at all. If at any time you are injured in a motorbike accident that was not your fault, contact injury solicitors in Dagnall to make your personal injury claim.
The sorts of injuries you may sustain in a motorbike accident
The list of injuries you could sustain in a motorbike accident is endless but includes:
- Broken bones
- Facial and eye injuries
- Back and spinal injuries
- Head and brain injuries
- Burns from the bike’s engine
- Road rash (this is where the rider slides along the road scraping skin and flesh from their body)
- Bikers arm (this is where the accident happens in such a way that the bike falls on the arm and crushes it)
Some of these injuries could be life changing, not just for the victim but for their families as well.
