The statistics show that on average, in road traffic accidents, at least 5 people a day lose their lives, as well as many other innocent people sustaining serious injuries. Many of these accidents result in Medway car accident claims being raised.
The involvement of Motorbikes in RTAs
Although motorbike riders account for just 2% of the traffic on the roads here in the UK, they are involved in a staggering 20% of the accidents. Lots of these accidents are through not fault of the motorbike riders. The two main causes of these accidents are bad road surfaces, and other road uses not seeing them, especially on roundabouts and at busy junctions.
If you are one of these motorbike riders and you’ve been injured in an RTA in Medway through no fault of your own, then you are entitled to claim for compensation by making one of the many Medway car accident claims, that we here at Accident Advice Helpline are often commissioned to assist with.
Medway car accident claims caused by bad road surfaces
Whether you are on a bicycle or a motorbike, bad road surfaces and potholes in particular can be extremely dangerous for you. Without any protection around you (you have no car body around you to buffer any impact), you could easily fall into the path of oncoming traffic and be extremely vulnerable to serious or fatal injury.
Local councils are responsible for making are that all their roads are safe for people to be travelling on. If they fail in this duty of care and you have an accident whereby you suffer injuries that need medical attention, then you could be entitled to raise Medway car accident claims for financial compensation
The other big danger for bike riders is other road users
In spite of campaigns like “THINK BIKE”, motorbikes are still at risk from not being spotted, which is why it’s so important for any motorbike to have its lights full on. But even so they still get missed, and any collision between a car or a larger vehicle and a motorbike usually has only one conclusion and its not good for the motorbike rider.
