Follow our guide to dealing with a motorcycle accident in Temple

Motorcycles offer a fast and exciting way of getting around and exploring the beautiful countryside. Many motorcyclists upgrade their bikes in order to enjoy a more powerful and thrilling ride. However, safe riding is down to more than just experience and common sense.

Keeping safe on the road

  • Always wear an approved safety helmet that is a good fit and buy it from a reputable dealer, as there are many fakes on the market.
  • Wear sensible biking boots that enable you to change gear easily and don’t risk your stability whilst riding.
  • Wear leather clothing to ensure that you don’t lose a layer of skin if you should fall off. Road rash can be very painful.
  • Maintain your bike and carry out routine checks for performance and safety.
  • Take up any offers of training that are part of the package if you buy your motorbike from a dealership.
  • Maintain a safe road position whilst biking.
  • Don’t weave between stationary vehicles or in a line of traffic, as this can distract other motorists and cause collisions.
  • Don’t be tempted to ride a bike that is more powerful than you can handle.
  • Remember that experience takes time to acquire and can make biking a more enjoyable pastime.

At the scene of an accident

If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in a motorcycle accident, then consider the following points:

  • It is your legal duty and responsibility to stop at the scene, whether or not you caused the accident or are injured.
  • Assess the situation and call the emergency services.
  • Reassure any casualties and offer first aid.
  • Never remove the helmet of a motorcyclist unless they stop breathing or have a cardiac arrest. Then, carefully remove the helmet and perform CPR until help arrives.
  • Ask a bystander to direct the traffic, if it is safe to do so.
  • Ensure that any witnesses provide their contact details and provide information about the accident to the emergency services
  • Exchange contact and insurance details with the other parties involved in the accident. This is a legal requirement.
