Motor cycle injury lawyers are always in demand
Statistics show that the most common cause of motor cycle accidents are car drivers failing to look properly. Most accidents involving a motor cycle happen at junctions and on rural roads and it is usually the fault of a car driver. Motor cyclists are far less likely to be responsible for an accident.
An unfortunate government statistic shows that injuries to motor cyclists are out of proportion to their presence on the roads. They represent just 1% of road users yet account for 19% of road user deaths.
These are alarming statistics but the Government’s, ‘Think Bike’ campaign is trying to address the problem.
The law requires all bikers to wear a helmet when riding on the roads in the UK. There are other ways to protect yourself from injury such as wearing appropriate protective clothing. Motor cycle leathers with reinforced knee and shoulder pads and proper boots can protect riders from serious scrape injuries if knocked off their bike and dragged along the road.
Diesel spills on the roads are a common cause of motor cycle accidents. Motorists overfilling their tanks or forgetting to put their fuel caps back on after filling up can cause these random spills. It can be impossible to trace the irresponsible road user but compensation can still be claimed.
