    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.
