No win no fee* Carbis Bay lawyers


Motorbike accidents and injuries

It is estimated that over 500,000 accidents happen on UK roads every year, and in 2012 nearly 190,000 of them were reported to have involved serious injuries or death. The main cause of road traffic accidents is cited as being a lack of concentration of drivers.

On average, five people a day lose their lives on our roads, and although that is much better than in the 1980s when the figure was around 15 a day, it is still too many victims leaving bereaved families.

1% of the traffic on our UK roads are motorbikes, but they are involved in 20% of the accidents and a rider is 40 times more likely to die in an accident than a car driver.

Many motorbike accidents do not involve other vehicles, but are caused by potholes or bad road surfaces. Just under half of them involve another motor vehicle and it is not uncommon for the driver to say they did not see the motorbike until it was too late to stop.

Whatever caused the motorbike rider to be injured, they should contact no win no fee* Carbis Bay lawyers to find out about claiming compensation.

The precautions motorbike riders can take

A crash helmet helps to reduce the risk of head injuries by 50%, but still 80% of riders who lose their lives do so because of head or brain injuries. These accidents happen for many reasons, and they are not all the fault of the rider.

When someone else is at fault, if their injuries warrant medical attention and the accident happened within the last three years, no win no fee* Carbis Bay lawyers can help them make a personal injury claim.

Leather clothing helps protect their bodies. If they slide along the road after coming off the motorbike, they could well sustain an injury called road rash. This is where the skin and flesh is cut and battered as they slide along the road. Leather clothing is much sturdier than denim or other popular motorbike clothes, and will give them much more protection.

Making sure their bike is in could working order is a must and it is becoming very common among bikers to always ride with their lights on to make them more visible.
