Rhymney road traffic accidents do not just involve cars. There are others types of traffic on our roads, including motorbikes that account for nearly 2% of the traffic on our roads.
There are over one million motorbikes registered for use with the DVLA, and dealers’ sales amount to 39,000 new bikes every year. Insurance companies write several off every week, and some are scrapped by their owners, but there is still a yearly net increase of the number of motorbikes in use.
This is partly because, once you have bought the bike and kitted yourself out, they are cheaper to run than cars. Many more people are using them for commuting, more people are taking motorbike riding up as a hobby.
Motorbikes in Rhymney road traffic accidents
The downside to riding a motorbike is the lack of protection they give to the riders. So if they are in Rhymney road traffic accidents, their injuries tend to be serious.
Motorbikes are involved in 20% of accidents on our roads. Many of them are the fault of other road users, or potholes and bad road surfaces. Of course, there are riders who are not sensible and cause accidents themselves, but the majority of riders realise the dangers and try not to put themselves, or any pillion riders, at risk.Open Claim Calculator
The injuries sustained in Rhymney road traffic accidents
Motorbiker’s injuries tend to be to their limbs or their head. Head injuries account for 80% of riders deaths. They can help reduce the risk of a head injury by making sure their helmet is of good quality and fits them properly.
There are many cheap fakes on the market that will give little or no protection at all, so they should always buy them from a reputable dealer – the few extra pounds it will cost could mean the difference between life and death. If a helmet is dropped or damaged in anyway, it should be replaced.
There are many other injuries motorbikers can get in accidents, losing a limb is not unusual, broken bones, road rash, bikers arm and burns from hot engines are just some of the result of motorbike accidents.
If the accident the motorbiker was injured in was not their fault, if their injuries needed medical attention and the accidents happened some time in the last three years, they are entitled to compensation from whomever caused the accident.
