Common Injuries whilst Motorcycling
Motorcycling is a more dangerous means of transport than other road alternatives and it is essential that you always take safety precautions and wear the appropriate apparel including a helmet.
The biggest Motorcycling risk is collision with other vehicles and falling off. Such accidents can be fatal. You are also at risk of cuts and bruises, broken bones, organ damage, haemorrhage and head injuries. Some of the most common injuries sustained from a motorcycle accident include:
- Superficial wounds
- Open wounds
- Head injury
Motorcycle accidents do happen and the motorbike rider is usually the one who suffers the most, as they are not afforded the same protection that a car gives its driver. Head injuries are the main cause of death in motorcycle accidents, so it is essential that you always wear a helmet.
Motorcycle Safety Tips
There are many things you can do to improve your saftey when riding a Motorcycle.
- Wear a helmet. You may want to ride a Motorcycle without using a helmet in a hot climate. If you have an accident you are more likely to receive a head injury. Any helmet should comply with safety guidelines and it should always fit correctly.
- Wear protective clothing. It may in hot climates to wear only the basic clothing, however it is important that cover up any exposed skin. Try to wear gloves, boots and a leather jacket and trousers.
- Be careful going around bends. Most accidents will happen on corners, either because you are going to fast or you are on the wrong side of the road. Take it easy and try and slow down before taking a corner.
You must ensure that you are adequately supervised, that appropriate safety equipment (such as protective headwear, etc.) are worn at all times and you do not participate in Motorcycling for more than 90 days in any one Period of Insurance.
