Have you been injured whilst on a motorcycle?
Although they are an extremely efficient form of transport, there are many dangers associated with travelling by motorbike. Despite these dangers, many people are committed bike enthusiasts who enjoy riding a bike. For others, the ability to avoid traffic and get to their destination more quickly means that the benefits of riding a motorbike outweigh the potential dangers.
Unfortunately, many of the dangers associated with riding a bike arise because of other drivers. As bikes are obviously smaller than cars and are able to move through otherwise stationary traffic, drivers may not be aware of them.
Similarly, when in moving traffic, drivers may not see a motorbike, particularly if the bike is in their blind spot when they check their mirrors. Unfortunately, many injuries have been caused to motorbike riders because of this and many people are now campaigning for changes to be made to the design of wing mirrors to provide drivers with a better view of other vehicles around them.
Although many riders do wear safety clothing and equipment, even this isn’t always enough to protect them from harm. As riders receive comparatively little protection when compared to car or van drivers, they can experience serious injuries as a result of even a relatively minor collision.
However, this won’t prevent you from obtaining compensation if you find that you were injured because of someone or something else.
