There are many perfect motorbike roads in the UK, and many motorbike riders that use them. If one of them is involved in an accident and they are injured through no fault of their own, they may want to talk to Accident Advice Helpline about making motorcycle claims in Westminster for compensation.
Motorbike accidents and making motorcycle claims in Westminster
An accident on a motorbike can have dire consequences, serious and life changing injuries, and if that accident was not your fault, you should pursue motorcycle claims in Westminster.
With over 1 million bikes registered for use on our roads, they now account for nearly 2% of all traffic. Unfortunately, they are involved in 20% of all accidents and as a motorbike does not give the protection a car does, the injuries tend to be more severe.
About half the accidents involving motorbikes also involve other road users. This is mainly because car drivers do not see them until it is too late and quite often they can’t stop in time to avoid the accident. Many car drivers are not as aware of bike riders who receive awareness training when learning to ride their bikes. In fact, it is often suggested that bike riders make better car drivers because of this awareness training.
The injuries that can be the result of a motorbike accident
A motorbike rider is 40 times more likely to die in a road traffic accident than a car driver, but it is not just the riders to consider, many of them carry pillion passengers as well. The sorts of injuries that are sustained in motorbike accidents include:
- Broken Bones
- Burns from the motorbike engine which is exposed
- Loss of limbs
- Facial injuries if the rider does not wear a full face helmet
- Road Rash – this is where the rider slides along the road and removes skin and flesh from his body
- Bikers Arm – motorbikes are heavy and if they fall onto the rider in the accident can crush the arm
- Head and brain injuries
- Back and spinal injuries
There is no end to the injuries that can be sustained in accidents of all types, and if you are the innocent victim of one, you should be contacting Accident Advice Helpline about making motorcycle claims in Westminster.
