Do you need to contact Kettering accident claim solicitors after suffering a moped accident?
As mopeds tend to have smaller engines than motorbikes, people can ride them at a younger age. Whilst many people consider this an advantage, it can mean that people involved in moped accidents are relatively young, which can be distressing if someone gets seriously hurt.
Of course, it isn’t possible to simply purchase a moped and use it on public roads. In order to ride a moped legally, you do need to undergo training and obtain the relevant licences and insurance. However, even when people do this, it is still possible for accidents to occur.
As moped drivers do tend to be relatively young, their inexperience on the road may contribute to the rate of accidents but it is possible that they could simply be the innocent victim in a road traffic accident.
Whilst any moped or motorbike rider is required to wear a helmet, they should also wear additional safety wear. Wearing protective leather clothing could help to prevent injuries from occurring if you were to fall from the bike or if you were thrown from the bike due to an accident.
If you’ve been hurt whilst you were riding a moped, you may find that people automatically assume that you were responsible for the incident. However, if the collision or the accident was actually caused by someone or something else, you could be eligible to make a compensation claim with Kettering accident claim solicitors.
If the other driver doesn’t admit responsibility for the incident, there’s no need to panic. There are various ways to prove who caused a road traffic accident, including CCTV, eye witness accounts and road traffic accident investigations. If you know that you weren’t at fault, you may find it worthwhile to contact Kettering accident claim solicitors and discuss your options for making a compensation claim.
