Franklin County Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Motorcycle Accidents

According to the Missouri Department of Transportation, 59 people were killed and 1,342 were injured in Missouri motorcycle accidents in the year 2009. Many victims of motorcycle accidents are unaware of their legal rights or options. In many cases, compensation is available for injuries, damages or losses sustained in motorcycle accidents, especially if they were caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing.

Tips to Avoid a Motorcycle Accident

Motorcycle riders would be well advised to ride defensively at all times. It is common for negligent and distracted drivers to fail to notice a motorcycle before changing lanes and making a turn. Therefore, motorcycle riders can help prevent some accidents by keeping a good distance from other vehicles and remembering to avoid riding in blind spots on the side of cars. It may also be in the best interest of motorcycle riders to wear bright colors when riding. It is common for riders to wear black leather, but this dark attire does little to increase the visibility of the rider. Riders would also be well advised to follow current state law and wear a helmet. Statistics show helmets save lives and prevent serious injuries such as traumatic brain injuries.

Common Injuries Suffered in Motorcycle Collisions

Motorcycle riders that are struck by cars or thrown from their vehicles often suffer catastrophic injuries. Common motorcycle crash injuries include:

  • Broken bones: Motorcycle riders are often crushed between the road and a vehicle. Broken bones may require expensive medical procedures, physical therapy and extended periods of time away from work.
  • Brain injuries: Even when a helmet is worn there is always the risk of a brain injury in a motorcycle accident. A traumatic brain injury can result in permanent disabilities or even death.
  • Road rash: Rubbing against a roadway or another vehicle can result in serious damage to the skin. Even protective attire may fail to protect a motorcycle rider involved in a major collision. Road rash can be extremely painful and could even lead to serious infections.
  • Spinal cord injuries: When someone suffers a devastating impact to the vertebrae there is the chance of a spinal cord injury. Victims of these types of injuries often suffer permanent disabilities and loss of physical functions and abilities.
