A head on collision accident occurs when a motorbike's front end collides with another vehicle's front end.
There can be lots of scenarios where this might happen, but it is very often when one of the vehicles veers on to the other side of the road and collides with oncoming traffic.
The injuries suffered in accidents like these can be devastating as the force of the impact is doubled due to the travelling speed of each vehicle. Add to that one of these will be a motorbike with very little protection for the rider, and then we see life changing injuries and sometimes even fatalities from accidents just like these.
Don’t move until you’ve checked yourself for injuries. Back and neck injuries can be made worse by moving after the accident before medical help arrived.
Don’t remove your helmet unless you are having difficulty breathing. This would take over any concern about head or spinal injuries.
Get someone at the scene to call 999 immediately.
Don’t try to move your bike and stay where you are as long as you are not in any further danger from moving traffic.
Check yourself for injuries, and remove any new or additional dangers.
St John Ambulance has some excellent advice on what to do in a situation such as this.
If you are able to, gather as much information at the scene as you can, including witness details, photographs of the vehicles and their position on the road.
If you are unable to do that then ask someone to do it for you. Evidence at the scene is always crucial in proving fault and liability when presenting your claim.
With horrific accidents like that you need to ensure that you are represented by experienced professionals who can deal with every aspect of your claim.
