St. Louis Motorcycle Hit and Run Accident Lawyers

Help for Motorcycle Hit-And-Run Victims in Missouri

Drivers who cause motorcycle collisions may experience a moment of panic and terror in which they decide to stay or flee. Drivers who choose to leave the scene of the crash instead of staying and calling the authorities often fail to realize in the heat of the moment that they are in fact breaking the law and committing a serious crime. In such cases, it is the injured victim and his or her family is burdened with all the expenses including costs of hospitalization and rehabilitation. An experienced St. Louis motorcycle accident lawyer can help those injured in hit-and-run accidents better understand their legal rights.

Missouri Hit-And-Run Law

It is illegal to leave the scene of a crash when someone has been injured or killed. According to Missouri Code Section 577.060.1: “A person commits the crime of leaving the scene of a motor vehicle collision when being the operator or driver of a vehicle on the highway or on any publicly or privately owned parking lot or parking facility generally open for use by the public and knowing that an injury has been caused to a person or damage has been caused to property, due to his culpability or to accident, he leaves the place of the injury, damage or accident without stopping and giving his name, residence, including city and street number, motor vehicle number and driver’s license number, if any, to the injured party or to a police officer, or if no police officer is in the vicinity, then to the nearest police station or judicial officer.”

Missouri Uninsured / Underinsured Motorist Coverage

In an ideal situation, the hit-and-run suspect will be apprehended and brought to justice. But as we know all too well, we do not live in an ideal world. Uninsured motorist (UIM) coverage provides a safety net to motorcyclists in case an uninsured or underinsured motorist injures them or if the hit-and-run driver who injured them is never identified or located. The State of Missouri requires all motorists to have adequate insurance, which includes uninsured motorist coverage. In such cases, the injured motorcycle rider may work directly with his or her own insurance company to receive compensation for the damages sustained in a Missouri hit-and-run motorcycle accident.

Hiring an Experienced Missouri Injury Lawyer

An experienced St. Louis motorcycle hit and run accident attorney will not only stay abreast of the ongoing investigation, but also strive to obtain fair and full compensation for the injured victims and their families. A skilled Missouri motorcycle accident attorney will know what to do, regardless of whether the hit-and-run driver is found or not. In cases where a hit-and-run victim needs to use his or her own insurance policy to receive benefits, a skilled attorney can be a valuable asset. Even in cases involving a hit-and-run driver, saying the wrong thing to an insurance company can greatly reduce the value of a claim.
