There are many different sorts of traffic on our roads, and nearly 2% of it is motorbikes. There are over 1 million of them registered for use in the UK, people using them for pleasure, commuting and some ride them as part of their job. It doesn’t matter why they ride them though, they are all very vulnerable to serious injuries in accident that were not their fault, and they all have the option of making a claim for compensation.
Motorbike accidents in Trafford and making a claim
It is almost impossible to avoid motorbike accidents in Trafford caused by someone else, but there are things that motorbikers can do to try and lesson the severity of their injuries if they are in this situation, such as:
- Wearing a good quality motorbike helmet. This reduces the risk of head injuries by 50%, but it should be well fitting and purchased from a reputable dealer as the fakes on the market do not give the protection they should.
- Good quality leather jacket and trousers can lessen the effects of road rash and engine burns if they are in an accident that was not their own fault.
- Sturdy motorbiking boots can help reduce the damage to their feet and ankles, and leather gloves will help protect their hands.
Apart from what they wear, they should always make sure their bike is well maintained so that they do not encounter a problem with their brakes for instance, when they most need them.
The causes of motorbike accidents
Most motorbike accidents in Trafford are caused by someone else. They are usually the result of potholes and bad roads surfaces, or because of other road users that just do not see them until it is too late.
Of course there are riders that go too fast and do silly things, just like drivers of all other road vehicles, and they will all be liable to settling a Trafford no win no fee accident claim if they are the cause of an innocent victim being injured.
