    Road accident in Wycombe

    Road accidents come in all shapes and sizes, from car crashes to multivehicle pile-ups.  They are always sudden and unexpected and can cause an enormous amount of stress for all involved.

    Unfortunately, a road accident in Wycombe, as well as anywhere else, can be worse for some types of road users than others.

    Motorbike riders have very little protection compared to the bubble of metal that surrounds a car driver, and if the road accident in Wycombe should be because a heavy goods vehicle or bus runs into them, they will be lucky to survive.

    Motorbike riders and road accidents in Wycombe

    Motorbikes account for only 1% of the traffic on UK roads, but are involved in 20% of the accidents, and most of them are not the fault of the rider. There are two main reasons that motorbike riders are involved in a road accident in Wycombe:

    • Other motor vehicles drivers do not see them until it is too late
    • Potholes and bad road surfaces

    More riders are taking to the roads because a motorbike is so much more cost effective than a car, and a lot of riders are using them to commute on.

    The precautions a motorbike rider can take

    It is very hard, no matter what you are doing, to avoid an accident when it is not your own fault, but there are some precautions a motorbike rider can take that could reduce the risk of sustaining serious injuries in a road accident in Wycombe,

    A full-face helmet will mean they are less likely to sustain facial injuries, and the wearing of a helmet reduces the risk of head injuries by 50%.  Even with this protection, 80% of motorbike riders that die do so because of head injuries.

    Dealing with the experts

    Quite often, when a motorbike is involved in an accident, it is automatically assumed that the rider must be at fault, which more often than not is wrong.

    At Accident Advice Helpline we will make sure that you do not shoulder the blame when someone else was at fault, and will ensure that you get the compensation you deserve for the injuries you have been caused.
