    Road accident in Poole


    There are many places in the UK that motorbike riders enjoy riding their bikes

    But it does not matter where you go on your bike, if you have a road accident in Poole, or in any other part of Britain, if it was not your own fault and you sustained an injury, then you should contact Accident Advice Helpline to help you to make an injury claim.

    An injury lawyer for a road accident in Poole and accident statistics

    More motorbikes on the roads, mean more motorbike accidents and more motorbike road accident in Poole claims. Even though motorbikes account for only 1% of the traffic on UK roads, they are involved in 20% of the accidents, and they are not all the fault of the rider.  They are 40 times more likely to die than a car driver because they do not have the protection of a car around them. This creates the need for a lot of them to make a personal injury claim using an injury lawyer.

    Why road accidents in Poole happen

    There are lots of different reasons why an accident can occur, the most common one where other vehicles are involved being that the motor driver just did not see the biker in time to stop.  Some reasons for motorbike accidents are:

    • Defect on the bike such as brakes could cause a nasty accident
    • Potholes or bad road surfaces
    • Spillages on the road – diesel is particularly dangerous to a motor biker
    • Trails of mud left by farmers and construction lorries
    • Collisions with other vehicles – cars, buses lorries etc
    • Filtering through traffic – cars do not always indicate when they are changing lanes
    • Opening of car doors without looking, knocking the motor biker off their bike

    Here are just some of the reasons a motorbike accident could occur that would not be the fault of the rider.  If their injuries were bad enough to need medical attention, assuming they survived, of course, then they would be able to make a personal injury compensation claim.

    Although riders wear crash helmets, and most of them wear leathers for protection, there are injuries you can get from a motorbike accident that you would not get in a car accident; you are more vulnerable on a bike.  The crash helmet reduces the risk of serious head injury by 50%, but still 80% of motorbike deaths are because of brain injuries.
