How to survive a motorcycle crash – specialist injury lawyer in Marble Arch
Obviously the best way to survive a motorcycle crash is to not get into one in the first place. If you are a careful driver and always make sure that you are paying attention to the road and everyone in it then you are much less likely to be involved in an accident. However, you can not always predict what other drivers on the road are going to do, and in certain weather conditions accidents are more likely. If you do get into a crash or come off of your bike then there are some precautions you can take to make sure that your accident is the least severe it can possibly be.
- Always wear a helmet. It is the law in the UK that you must be wearing a helmet when you are on a motorcycle and this is to protect your health. A crash is more likely to be fatal if you are not wearing a helmet, and even if it is not fatal you can sustain much greater injuries and even permanent brain damage if you are not wearing a helmet.
- Keep your visor down. A visor protects your face should you get into a crash, so whatever the weather make sure that your visor is down when you are travelling.
- Wear protective clothing. This includes leathers, gloves and thick jeans or trousers which will protect your skin and body if you are thrown from your bike. Road rash is common in a motorcycle accident, and wearing clothing to protect as much of you as possible from the road will reduce the chances of suffering this injury.
- Avoid electric motorcycles. Although these are better for the environment, they are also almost silent. In the case of motorcycles, the louder and more visible you are the better, as it lets other road users know that you are on the road well before they see you.
