Motorbikes are not as prevalent as cars, which unfortunately results in many drivers failing to look out for motorcyclists, especially at junctions. Recent research suggests that 75% of all motorcycle accidents result from collisions with other vehicles. Of these, 65% are due to drivers failing to spot motorcyclists before it is too late.
Examples of careless driving behaviours that can lead to nasty accidents on the roads include:
- Drivers rear-ending motorcyclists
- Drivers making sudden or reckless manoeuvres that take riders by surprise, causing them to collide with stationary objects or other vehicles
- Drivers failing to provide riders with the right of way
- Drivers making sudden, or illegal, turns, resulting in riders falling off of their motorcycles
Motorbikes, by their nature, do not offer much physical protection, and as a result, thousands of motorcyclists end up sustaining severe injuries in road traffic accidents in Wycombe every year.
Taking action following a motorcycle accident
If you have involved in a motorcycle accident on the roads, your health and well-being should always be your main priority. Therefore, the first thing you should do is visit your local A&E department so that a doctor can assess your condition and attend to any injuries you may have sustained.
