Even if you are a very safe biker, there is still a chance that you will be involved in an accident at some time in your life. After all, there are other motorists on the road to deal with and they do not always show the care and concern that they should.
There are certain precautions that you can take in order to minimise the chances of being caught up in a collision. Always obey the speed limit and never overtake when it is not safe to do so. A good helmet will protect you in the event of a crash and can reduce your risk of sustaining a serious injury by around 30%.
Motorbike injury claims
After any kind of motorbike accident, you should get medical attention as soon as possible. This may involve calling for an ambulance, or you may be able to use your own transport to get to the nearest Accident and Emergency unit.
If you notice any of the following symptoms, then you should make certain that you get checked out by a medical professional as a matter of urgency:
- Loss of consciousness, even if only for a brief time
- Memory loss
These symptoms could indicate a serious head injury, and it is vital that you have a thorough examination to rule out any complications.
