Motorcycle Accidents

Head Injuries

Being involved in a road traffic collision can be a frightening experience but can be especially so when you are riding a motorbike. As you are no doubt aware, motorcyclists are far more vulnerable to injury when being involved in an accident than say someone who is travelling in a car.

The most common injury from motorbike accidents is a head injury, ranging from concussion to mild or severe brain damage. Head injuries can result in various complications and be extremely debilitating, necessitating time of work and a reduced ability to partake in social and family arrangements.

As well as head injuries the following is a list of injuries for which you are also able to claim:-

• Back/spinal injuries.
• Fractured/broken bones.
• Whiplash.
• Soft tissues injuries.
• Amputations.
• Psychological injuries.

Our specialist team will do their upmost to ensure you receive any compensation to which you are entitled and they will do it as quickly as possible.

Types of Motorbike Accidents

There are many scenarios we have heard of when dealing with road traffic accidents involving motorbikes and the following is a list of just a few:-

• Junction/roundabout accidents.
• Filtering accidents.
• Defective road surface – potholes/missing drainage covers/spillages.
• Hit and run.
• Third party negligence/careless driving.
What can you do to help?

One of the most important things to remember is to wear the right gear. A pair of jeans will offer your legs no protection if you come off and slide down a tarmac road. The road will shred holes in your jeans in seconds and next up is your skin! Wearing a protective jacket, gloves, boots and trousers could make all the difference.

Be defensive. Anticipate the actions of others on the road, be alert and observant. You may be the best rider on the roads but you cannot be sure about the skills of other motorists. Be seen by wearing bright/florescent gear in the day and reflective gear at night.
