Who Is Most Likely To Suffer a Personal Injury in a Motorcycle Accident?
Anyone who rides a motorcycle is at risk of suffering a personal injury due to an accident, but statistically, some people are more at risk than others. These are usually young men but older riders are equally vulnerable.
These older riders –also known as ‘born again bikers tend to be men in their 40’s and 50’s that are enjoying a second youth. They have the disposable income to purchase large, powerful bikes which are a considerable step up from the bikes they rode in their youth.
But what they forget is that modern motorcycles are more powerful than before and much more difficult to handle. Plus they may not have the skills to handle these types of bikes in all types of weather and on roads that are far busier than they were in their youth.
The main problem for motorcyclists is that they are more vulnerable in an accident than other road users, purely due to the fact that they do not have the same protection.
Cars and other four-wheeled vehicles encase their driver in a steel box: the rider of a motorcycle is sat on a machine that experiences every pothole or defect in the road to a far greater extent.
A motorcycle is far more likely to fall over or slip on oil on a greasy road surface.
