Springfeild, Missouri Motorcycle Accident Attorney
When you or a loved one are in involved in a motorcycle accident, it is important to contact a Springfield motorcycle accident lawyer immediately. As a former insurance defense attorney, I can tell you that the insurance company is not out to “help you” despite what they may tell you.
Motorcycle riders are absolutely entitled to shared and safe access to Missouri roads. Individuals involved in Motorcycle accidents caused by negligent automobile drivers are more susceptible to serious injury or death for obvious reasons. Not only are riders more susceptible to injury when hit by a car, riders are also susceptible to injuries caused by defects in the roadway.
Being involved in a motorcycle accident can cause serious injuries ranging from road rash too broken bones, traumatic brain injuries (TBI’s), amputation, paralyzation, and wrongful death. Recovery from even a minor motorcycle accident can be long and excruciating, involving physical therapy, surgeries, and extended convalescent periods. Often, injured motorcycle riders never fully recover from their injuries.
Motorcycle riders are unfortunately treated like second class citizens when involved in an accident. The insurance company will no doubt attempt to at least partially, if not fully, blame you for the accident, simply because you were riding a motorcycle. My office will not stand for such treatment!
