St. Louis Uninsured Motorist Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
What To Do If You’ve Been Hit by an Uninsured Motorist
Every day, motorcyclists are injured in traffic accidents. In fact, in 2006, over 104,000 motorcycle accidents occurred in the United States and unfortunately, this number appears to be on the rise. When economic times are tough, motorcycles become a cheaper and easier way to commute. Unfortunately, it is also during these times that other drivers begin to make cutbacks on their insurances. These uninsured and under-insured drivers put everyone on the roadways at risk — especially motorcyclists.
The majority of motorcycle accidents in Missouri are caused by other drivers who fail to notice motorcycles on the roadways. Unfortunately though, motorcyclists are the ones who sustain the majority of the injuries during the accident. Injuries may include fractures, burns, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries and even death. In the state of Missouri, the driver responsible for the accident may also be responsible for your medical expenses, rehabilitation and any other expenses incurred as a result. Unfortunately, if you are injured in an accident involving an uninsured or under-insured driver, you may find your medical bills piling up with little or no compensation.
If you find yourself injured in a motorcycle crash with an uninsured driver, it is important to contact a personal injury attorney immediately. Your Missouri personal injury attorney will be able to determine if you can file a claim against the responsible party and will be able to negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf. In addition, your personal injury attorney may be able to file a claim under your own insurance company to ensure that your medical needs are handled quickly and efficiently.
Dealing with injuries after you have been involved in a collision is difficult enough. You shouldn’t be left to deal with stubborn insurance companies as well. Contact a Missouri uninsured motorist attorney immediately to determine if you are entitled to receive compensation for your injuries.
