    Motorcycle claims in Trafford

    Motorcycle claims in Trafford

    Britain has some great biking roads and this has led to an increase in both motorbikes and bicycles on the roads. Riders of two-wheeled vehicles are very vulnerable compared to the car driver, as they do not have the metal bubbles of a car around them. They are far more likely to be seriously injured or killed in an accident that was not their fault, and far more likely to need to make motorcycle claims in Trafford.

    The statistics that cause motorcycle claims in Trafford

    The number of motorbikes on UK roads has increased and there are now over a million of them registered for use. They also:

    • Account for nearly 2% of all traffic
    • Account for 20% of all accidents with serious injuries or deaths
    • A motorbike rider is 40 times more likely to die than a car driver
    • Their helmets reduce the risk of head injuries by 50%
    • 80% of motorbike deaths are because of head or brain injuries

    These statistics do not look good for anyone considering buying their first motorbike, but there are still many thousands of riders who enjoy their bikes without incidents.

    Motorbike dealers report that on average they sell 39,000 new bikes every year, and insurance companies report that most of them write off an average of one bike per week. At 52 bikes a year for each insurance company that offers motorbike insurance, that still represents an increase every year on the numbers of motorbikes that will be on our roads.

    The causes of motorbike accidents

    There are an unlimited number of reasons for motorbike accidents, but some of the more common ones are:

    Motorcycle claims in Trafford are an option you should consider if you are injured in a motorbike accident that was not your fault.

    Motorbiking injuries

    The injuries sustained in motorbike accidents tend to be of a serious nature because of the lack of protection. Many riders suffer disabling injuries such as loss of a limb or injuries to the brain. Of course milder injuries happen to bike riders and their pillions as well, but even so they are usually bad enough to need medical care.

    Motorbike accident claims

It is a sad fact that in most cases the blame is put on the motorbike rider until it has been proved otherwise; it is just assumed they must have been to blame.
