Preventing a motorbike accident is better than needing to make a compensation claim.
While we at Imperium Law are here to help all riders with their motorcycle accident compensation claims, we would much prefer accidents were prevented.
Riding a motorbike is a very popular pastime. If you’d like to get a motorbike, but don’t know how to handle or ride it safely, then it’s very important to take lessons first.
How can lessons prevent an accident from happening?
You will feel more confident about handling your bike.
Motorbikes are generally big and heavy, and can be difficult for some people to manage. Some people can find it difficult to keep the bike steady whilst they’re riding. By taking a lesson, you’ll be able to try it out before going out on your own. Your confidence will soar as you realise that you can ride a bike safely.
You could get a discount when you buy your motorbike.
Some motorbike retailers offer discounts to people who have taken lessons. Although the percentage reduction might not be large, it all adds up and could leave you with extra funds to purchase your crash helmet. If you don’t see an advert from the motorbike shop offering a discount, then ask before you commit to buy from them.
You could save money on your insurance.
You may save on your insurance premium, as you’ll be less likely to have an accident. Insurance companies are well known for giving discounts to people who have taken steps to cut down on the chance of having an accident. This includes people who have taken extra lessons.
You will be safer.
You won’t just learn about how to handle a motorcycle in a variety of circumstances. You will also learn more about how to be safe on the road. Your tutor will teach you how to handle other drivers on the road, and how to handle different weather conditions.
If you have had a motorbike accident which was not your fault, you could be entitled to claim compensation.
