A motorcyclist has been seriously injured after colliding with a bin lorry in a crash in a road traffic accident in Glasgow.
The incident occurred at 4:15pm on a Saturday, which led to emergency services treating the motorcycle driver at the scene. He was then taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital for treatment.
In a case which highlights the danger of being a vulnerable road traffic, the bin lorry-driver and two passengers on board escaped injury, with only the motorcyclist suffering major injuries.
Police Scotland are still carrying out inquiries into the incident to find out who was at fault for the incident.
Vulnerable Road Users: Danger of Serious Injury
The incident highlights the dangers of being a vulnerable road user, with cyclists, motorcyclists, pedestrians, and other road users more likely to suffer from serious injuries in a road traffic accident than other road users.
This is due to the fact, unlike cars and other vehicles, vulnerable road users do not have the same protection as such drivers. As well as this, larger vehicle drivers often do not see smaller, more vulnerable road users, especially at junctions, which can often lead to severe injuries.
Making a Personal Injury Claim
If you are involved in a motorcycle accident and are seriously injured, you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim. To make a personal injury claim, you must not have been at fault for your own injuries, and your accident must have been caused by carelessness or negligence from another.
Making a personal injury claim can often be exceptionally complex, especially if no one admits liability for the accident.
