Motorcycle Accidents

 

Missouri motorcycle accident statistics show
that motorcycle accidents typically account for a disproportionately
high number of catastrophic traffic accidents resulting in brain injury,
broken bones, paralysis, and death. Tragically, the vast majority of
Florida motorcycle accidents were unavoidable by the motorcyclist
who was injured or killed but could have been easily avoided by the
other vehicle driver who caused it. The experienced Injury Claims and Lawsuits attorneys at
Abrahamson & Uiterwyk understand the complex aspects of
Missouri motorcycle accident cases, including:

  • Missouri vehicle laws pertaining to motorcyclists
  • Motorcycle accident reconstruction
  • Roadway design and architecture as it relates to motorcyclists
  • Motorcycle design and manufacturing issues (resulting in product liability)

 

In most motorcycle-motor vehicle accidents, a negligent or inattentive
automobile driver is at fault. Some of the common types of collisions
include:

  • A driver swerving directly in front of a motorcyclist
  • A driver pulling out of an intersection or driveway into the path of an oncoming motorcycle
  • A driver’s failure to follow posted traffic laws or yield proper right of way
  • A driver’s failure to see a motorcyclist when changing lanes or passing other motor vehicles
  • A driver who is temporarily impaired by drugs or alcohol

Do not settle for less than fair compensation!
