Motorbike accident solicitors
Motorbike accident solicitors stay aware of courses and new ideas that will help to keep motorcyclists safer on the roads.
Statistics show that motorbike accidents account for 19% of all fatal accidents on the road.
Road safety manager Colin Heyes said: “As the weather generally starts improving, many bikers are thinking about taking their bikes for the first ride-out of the year. However, along with this increase in biker activity, unfortunately we know that there will also be an increase in the number of bike related collisions on the roads.”
Firefighters hold Biker Awareness courses up and down the country, to highlight motorcycle safety.
In Cheshire between 2012 and 2015 there were 1,049 motorbike accidents and sadly 37% of then were fatal accidents or very serious injuries. Over the last three years motorbike accident casualties have accounted for 20 per cent of all road fatalities in Cheshire.
Colin added: “We want people to enjoy riding their bikes on our roads but we also want them to be safe. “We hope that by educating and informing people about possible dangers we can help them be avoided.”
Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service also organises free safety tuition for motorcyclists.
Biker Down is a free training course run by bikers for bikers and offers people the chance to learn practical skills to help avoid being involved in a crash.
Motorbike accident solicitors deal with all manor of injuries that can be particularly severe due to the vulnerability of motorcycles when involved in a road traffic motorbike accident or collision. Unfortunately, the personal injuries that motorbike riders can sustain when involved in a motorbike accident can be significant.
