Motorcycle accidents in Greece
MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS GREECE
Motorcycles are a pleasant, economical and practical mode of transport. Unfortunately, motorbike accidents lead to thousands of absurd injuries and deaths every year. Even the most experienced riders are often exposed to the negligent behavior of other drivers. Also the victims of motorcycle or quad accidents often experience more serious forms of injuries compared to other traffic accidents.
Unfortunately, motorcycle riders face five times higher probability to be injured, and it is 26 times more likely to die in an accident than drivers or passengers of other vehicles. Motorbikes are smaller than the other motor vehicles. Because of this, motorcyclists have less visible presence and are less likely to be noticed by other drivers.
Two-thirds of motorcycle accidents involving other motor vehicles, the driver of the other vehicle has breached some of the traffic rights of the motorcyclist. If you or a loved one has been injured in any kind of motorcycle (moped or quad) accident due to someone else's negligence, we can help you.
The most frequent causes of accidents between motorcycles and cars include:
• Alcohol and drugs: every year hundreds of accidents are caused due to driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
• Sudden stops: When the vehicle drivers are very near and behind motorcycles, motorcyclists can be injured seriously.
• Door opening: drivers are responsible to check traffic before opening their car doors.
• Crossroads: The intersections are dangerous places for motorcyclists: 70 percent of accidents with motorcycles take place there. If the other driver was speeding, did not noticed a red light or did not obey to the traffic rules on priority then he or she bears the responsibility.
• Change of traffic lanes: drivers should check for motorcycles when changing lanes.
Each traffic accident with motorcycle is unique therefore whoever has the longest experience can make a difference.

What do in case of a motorcycle accident in Greece
If you are involved in an accident with a car or truck, what you do at the scene of an accident is very important.
When motorbikes are involved in accidents with cars, it's scary. It is important to keep your temper, after the conflict. What to do immediately after the accident can have a big impact on how you are satisfied for your injuries and the damage to your motorcycle. It can also affect the outcome of any lawsuits stemming from the accident. Indicative issues that need to be taken care of:
• Wait until police or traffic police arrives.
It is vital to wait for the police to arrive at the scene of an accident in order to be able to receive, and to submit it later in a court, the police report-even if you think you're not injured. Some motorcycle riders do not realize that they have been injured until several hours after the accident. Sometimes, seemingly minor injuries can later develop into serious and persistent problems.
• Register your version in the accident report
You can state and register your own side of the story to the police report. And by all means, state all your injuries, no matter how small. Remember, these minor may later become more serious. Note the contact details of the driver and witnesses.
If possible, get the name of the driver of the car as well as his or her address, phone number, driver's license number, car license number, vehicle registration, and insurance information. In addition, try to get the names and contact information for anyone who was a witness of the accident. Don't assume that the police report will include all these information- maybe not. If you have been injured and you can't get this information yourself, ask another person to do it for you.
• Write down what happened
If you can, keep clearly in your mind notes about the accident: what happened? How did it happen? Where did it happen? When did it happen? How was the road, the traffic and the weather conditions? Then, as soon as you can, write all this information.
• Record your injuries
Seek immediate medical help for your injuries, even if they seem insignificant. The fact that you seeked medical help will serve as proof that you were injured and medical records will record the extent of those injuries. Take several photos of your injuries as soon as possible after the accident. Start a diary of your bodily symptoms and post every few days.
• Preservation of evidence
Take photos of the damaged equipment.
• Seek advice from a professional
In many road accidents there are many complex legal issues. You may want to consult an expert who understands injuries during motorcycles or has handled cases of accidents with motorbikes. Such an expert can advise you on how to proceed in negotiations with the insurance companies or to represent you in a lawsuit.
If the case requires, a motorcycle accident expert can investigate the accident. This person can make measurements, photograph the scene of the accident, speak with additional witnesses or make diagrams of the accident site.
