Motorcycle safety sometimes falters
The most up-to-date statistics for motorcycle accidents suggest that on average there are around 5,000 serious injuries and almost 14,000 less serious injuries caused by motorcycle accidents every year in the United Kingdom.
While there are many more people injured in motor vehicle accidents, the number of accidents on motorcycles is still high as a proportion. Many of them are caused through collisions with other motor vehicles because of the lack of protection afforded by a motorcycle.
The riders of a motorcycle, both the driver and pillion, are only protected by their outer clothing (so-called leathers) and their helmet; while this is sufficient if you simply fall off the vehicle in the stationary position, it offers little protection against a moving vehicle at speed.
Head injuries, for example, can be very dangerous in the event of a motorcycle crash. The helmet covers the head and is designed to absorb some of the impact of a collision. However as the human brain inside the skull is effectively covered in a floating jelly-like substance, too much impact can lead to damage.
Likewise the arms and legs and torso (including the major organs) are at risk in the event of a collision with a speeding motor vehicle. While we are not attempting to frighten anyone with these details, it is likely that if you are reading this page you have experienced some kind of accident and possibly suffered some of these injuries.
