St. Charles County Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Motorcycles provide a sense of freedom that cars cannot offer. Unfortunately, motorcycles cannot provide many of the important safety features of a car. There is no steel frame, no airbags, side airbags or seatbelts. When a St. Charles County motorcycle crash occurs, there is always the possibility that the resulting injuries will be catastrophic or even fatal. When a car or truck driver’s negligence results in a motorcycle accident, the at-fault driver may be held liable for the damages suffered by the motorcyclist.
Rights of Injured Motorcyclists in St. Charles County
Injured motorcycle riders may pursue financial compensation for the damages they suffered in the crash by filing a personal injury claim. The resulting civil lawsuit may result in compensation for losses including hospital bills, physical therapy expenses, lost wages, disability coverage, pain and suffering and emotional distress. When a fatal motorcycle accident is caused by someone else’s negligence, the at-fault motorist could be held liable for the motorcyclist’s wrongful death. In such cases, the family of the deceased motorcyclist can seek compensation for medical and funeral expenses, lost future wages and benefits, lost of companionship and other damages.
Proving Liability for a Motorcycle Crash
Was the other driver speeding? Was the motorist making a phone call or sending a text? Did the at-fault driver run a red light or fail to yield the right of way? Was the other driver under the influence of alcohol or driving fatigued? These are all important questions that must be considered following an injury collision.
