Even the most careful biker can become involved in an accident if other road users do not pay due care and attention. Unfortunately, a motorcyclist will usually come off worse in the event of a collision with a 4-wheeled vehicle and they could sustain serious injuries as a result.
Even a full-faced helmet and leathers do not offer a lot of protection if a high-speed accident occurs. Indeed, it is true to say that bikers are one of the most vulnerable people on the road.
If you have sustained motor bike accident injuries within the last three years, and you were not to blame for the accident, then there is some good news; you may be able to make a personal injury claim in order to receive compensation.
Motor bike accident injuries
Depending on the nature of the accident, motor bike injuries can range from minor cuts and bruising to serious, life-threatening conditions.
For example, if your bike skids on a large pot hole, then you could be thrown to the ground and sustain a road rash injury. Protective clothing can help to prevent or minimise this type of injury, so it is a good idea to wear leathers even on warm days.
Broken bones are common motor bike accident injuries. Arms and legs can fracture in a collision with another vehicle and in more serious accidents, neck and spinal injuries can occur.
