Depending on the nature of the accident, motor bike injuries can range from cuts and bruising to life-threatening conditions. In the event of a collision between a bike and a car, it is the biker who will undoubtedly come off worse. They simply do have not the same protection that drivers of 4-wheeled vehicles enjoy and are among the most vulnerable of all road users.
Motor bike injuries
As a biker, you will be very aware of the dangers involved, every time you head out on the road. It is vital that you were protective clothing such as good quality leathers and a full-faced helmet. You should ensure that your bike is in good working order and that your lights and brakes will not let you down when you need them.
Motorbikes are especially vulnerable to poor road conditions such as frost, ice and uneven surfaces such as pot holes. They could easily cause the biker to skid and fall to the ground. These kinds of injuries could cause broken bones and painful lacerations to the skin. If high speeds are involved, then this kind of accident can be even more devastating.
