Motorcyclists are familiar with the prejudice often associated with riding a motorcycle. Some drivers think that because you were on a motorcycle, you are not entitled to reimbursement for your injuries if another driver causes an accident. This flawed logic is similar to saying that because you were in a small car when a large semi-truck caused an accident, the driver of the car should not be able to recover for their injuries. All drivers have the same rights to use Missouri roadways, period.

In recent years the popularity of motorcycles has grown. So, too, has the number of fatal Missouri motorcycle accidents. If you have been seriously injured or a family member has died in a motorcycle accident caused by the carelessness of another, you are entitled to reimbursement for all of your harms and losses. Before you speak to an insurance company or sign anything, contact an experienced St. Louis motorcycle accident lawyer by calling 314-409-7060 or Toll-Free at 855-40-CRASH. It is important that an investigation begin immediately after the crash to ensure all evidence is gathered.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

When a vehicle is involved in a crash with a motorcycle, the statement most commonly made by the driver of the vehicle is “I didn’t see the motorcycle.” Ask any experienced motorcycle operator what single piece of advice he or she would give a new motorcycle enthusiast, and the answer will almost certainly be this: “Assume that you are invisible to automobiles.”

The study: Motorcycle Accidents In-Depth Study, conducted by European researchers, uncovered several important statistics on motorcycle accident causes:

  • In half of the crashes, the primary error was committed by the driver of the other vehicle, not the motorcyclist.
  • In 70 percent of the crashes, the other driver failed to see the motorcycle.
  • Weather caused or contributed to 7.5 percent of the accidents.
  • Road-maintenance defects caused or contributed to 3.6 percent of the accidents studied.

According to a recent report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, “Recent Trends in Fatal Motorcycle Crashes: An Update,” the incidence of deadly motorcycle accidents increased by 89 percent throughout a recent 7 year period. Though the behavior of motorcycle operators has become safer, the number of deaths in their ranks continues to rise.

Motorcycle Accident Damages

In Missouri, a person who has been hurt as a result of the carelessness of another may file a negligence lawsuit. An individual who has lost a family member as a result of the carelessness or negligence of another — for instance, in a motorcycle crash — may file a wrongful death lawsuit.

In the determination of how much a motorcycle accident case is worth, several factors are considered:

  • Past medical expenses
  • Future medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Past lost wages
  • Future lost wages
  • Funeral expenses

Before you sign a settlement agreement, which will strip you of any future rights to obtain compensation for injuries arising out of the accident, you should contact an injury lawyer to discuss your case.

Hiring a St. Louis Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

A motorcycle accident can have devastating and lasting effects. Recovery – physical, emotional and financial – may be difficult.

The primary goal of an insurance company is to reduce losses. If a driver was careless or negligent and the liability is clear, the insurance company with whom the driver held a policy may offer you a fast settlement after the crash. The insurance company may hope that the financial pressure and strain caused by the accident will make you more willing to accept less than what you deserve. However, the insurance company does not have a duty to protect your interests. Its goal is to minimize losses and maximize shareholder profits.

If you have been hurt or a loved one has died in a motorcycle accident caused by the carelessness, recklessness, negligence or intentional act of another, contact an attorney. A St. Louis motorcycle accident lawyer will help you determine:

  • Whether to proceed with a claim or lawsuit against the party at fault;
  • The value of your case;
  • Whether lost wages and future medical expenses will be covered;
  • The insurance policy’s coverage limits;
  • Whether you should accept an offer or proceed to trial; and
  • All evidence that must be gathered to protect your case.
