Elstree is probably best known for Elstree Film Studios and the BBC Elstree Studios where Eastenders is made. Although both of these are actually located in neighbouring Borehamwood, they have made the name of Elstree known worldwide.
A village situated about thirteen miles northwest of London, Elstree has a population of just over 5,000 residents, many of whom commute into London to work.
Nationwide, more commuters are using motorbikes and the number of them on UK roads has increased steadily over the last few years. They now account for 1% of all road traffic. Unfortunately they also account for 20% of serious injuries and deaths on the roads. A motorbike rider is 40 times more likely to die than a car driver, this is because they do not have the protection that a car provides for people, to save them from serious injuries and the need to use the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline to claim compensation.
Have you been in a motorbike accident that was not your fault?
There are numerous reasons why you may come off your bike and have to make a personal injury claim, for example:
- Bad road surfaces
- Oil or mud on the road
- Rider error
- Car doors being opened onto you
- Drivers not being aware of riders
In general, the majority of bike riders are also car drivers, and it is accepted that they are safer road users because being on a motorbike, you have to be much more aware of other traffic. They take this awareness into their cars and become better drivers.
Whether the accident you were injured in was caused by a driver or a motorbike rider, you may be entitled to use the solicitors at Accident Advice Helplinw to make a personal injury compensation claim.
There are lots of different types of injuries you could have, but some of the more common ones are:
- Head and brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Internal injuries
- Road rash
- Bikers arm
- Back and spinal injuries
- Facial injuries
Assuming the motorbike rider survives the accident they may want to use the solicitors in Elstree to claim compensation from the person that caused the accident. However if they do not survive, it should be the bereaved family who make contact with Accident Advice Helpline.
