Contact us for motorbike accident claims
Sometimes during large groups of motorbike rides accidents can occur, as well as with riders on the road alone.
It is all part of the enjoyment of being a motorbike rider, and as more of them take to the roads, the bigger these meets are becoming.
Generally, motorbike riders are among the most aware of road users as it is part of the training they undergo before passing their riding test. But sometimes they are involved in accidents, and a common problem from falling off a motorbike is a whiplash injury, where we offer legal aid in the area of Bramhall.
Injuries from motorbike accidents
A whiplash injury is one of the milder injuries that can be sustained in a motorbike accident, although they can cause on-going issues after the event. The design of a motorbike means the riders are very exposed if an accident happens and because of this, their injuries tend to be serious. These are some of the possible injuries:
- Head and brain injuries
- Back and spine injuries
- Internal injuries
- Facial injuries
- Broken bones
- Soft tissue injuries
Brain injuries in particular can have life changing effects, not just for the victim but for their loved ones as well.
Wearing a well fitting good quality helmet reduces the risk of brain injuries by 50%, but these types of injuries still account for 80% of motorbike rider fatalities. A well known fact is also that riders should never buy their helmets second hand, because they do not know the history of them, and if one has been dropped, it will not give the protection it should.
The same applies to buying cheap helmets, which is never a good idea. There are many on the market which use inferior materials and will give little or no protection at all, a good helmet could mean the difference between life and death.
