Cars still outnumber motorcycles on the roads, so it makes sense that car accidents are more numerous than motorcycle accidents. However, motorcyclists are far more likely to sustain serious injuries in road traffic accidents, mainly because they possess little in the way of personal protection from their vehicle.
If you ride a motorcycle, understanding the steps you need to take to prevent your body from bearing the brunt of an accident is your main line of defence against personal injuries. To improve your chances of surviving an accident on the roads, ensure that you wear the following personal protective equipment:
- A helmet: A helmet is undoubtedly the most important piece of protective equipment you will ever own. When buying a new helmet, try on a range of styles and sizes to find one that fits the unique shape and size of your head.
- Leather clothing: The law does not require you to wear leathers, but specialised motorcycle clothing is highly recommended.
- A pair of gloves: Your fingers and wrists are delicate, so it does not take much for them to sustain long-term damage. When taking to the roads, wear specialist motorcycle gloves, as these will provide you with the grip you need to stay in control of your bike at all times.
- A pair of boots: At Accident Advice Helpline, our solicitors deal with many motorcycle accident claims involving broken lower limb bones. Due to the disabling nature of lower limb injuries, it is essential for you to choose sturdy boots that will protect you from serious crush injuries.
