Accidents that involve motorbikes being hit by cars coming out of a side road are common, and will often involve the car driver saying the words…"Sorry mate I didn’t see you".
The risks here are cars coming out of junctions that have failed to notice the motorcyclist travelling across the road or have completely misjudged their speed.
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.
