    Treharris negligence claim

    Treharris negligence claim

    Motorbike are just one of the vehicles that are in road traffic accidents on our roads. They are involved in 20% of them, although they account for just under 2% of the total traffic. The other fact that surprises some people is that most of the accidents they are in are not the rider’s fault. This is why so many motorbike riders are able to make a Treharris negligence claim, because someone else has caused them to be injured.

    Causes of motorbike accidents that result in a Treharris negligence claim

    There are two main causes of motorbike accidents:

    • Other road users who are not aware of the motorbike and do not see it until it is too late.
    • Potholes and bad road surfaces which are real danger for motorbike riders

    Unfortunately, because of the lack of protection a motorbike gives, the riders and their pillion passengers tend to be seriously injured in accidents that were not their own fault.

    Reducing the risk of serious injury

    There is not much anyone one can do to prevent an accident that someone else causes, and this is no different for the riders of motorbikes. All they can do is try and protect themselves and help to reduce the severity of any injuries they may sustain.

    They should always wear a good quality, well fitting helmet. This will reduce the risk of head injuries by 50%, although damage to the head and brain still accounts for 80% of rider deaths.

    Good quality leather clothing, boots and gloves will help protect their bodies, and reduce the severity of injuries such as road rash.

    There are many fake items on the market that will not give the protection they should. Riders should always make sure they buy from a reputable dealer to avoid them. It may cost them a little extra, but those few pounds could mean the difference between life and death.
