HELPING MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT VICTIMS PURSUE MONETARY COMPENSATION FOLLOWING A CRASH
When a car or large truck strikes a motorcycle – most especially at a high rate of speed – the resulting injuries to a motorcycle operator or passenger can be devastating and sometimes deadly. Unfortunately, motorcycle riders have very limited protection, with the exception of their helmets. Therefore, in an accident, when a motorcyclist falls off his or her bike and strikes the ground, the impact is likely to be hard, and the injuries severe. The sad thing about many of these accidents is that they are totally preventable.

COMMON INJURIES SUFFERED IN A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT
Injuries that a motorcycle operator or passenger suffers in a motorcycle accident can be severe – especially if the force of the impact causes the rider to fall from the motorcycle onto the roadway. Injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident can require surgery, medical treatment, physical therapy, and occupational therapy. They can also require that the accident victim take a significant amount of time off work in order to fully recover. Some of the most common injuries that motorcycle riders suffer in an accident include:
- Traumatic brain and head injuries, sometimes known as TBIs
- Muscle contusions and soft tissue injuries (especially those to the neck and back)
- Back injuries and paralysis injuries
- Mouth and teeth injuries
- Cuts, scrapes, and abrasions
If you or someone you love has suffered one or more of these injuries, you may be able to file a claim or lawsuit against the at-fault driver. Moreover, if your loved one was killed in a motorcycle accident because of a negligent driver, the personal representative of the loved one’s estate may be able to file a claim or lawsuit for wrongful death.
HOW DO MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS TYPICALLY HAPPEN
Motorcycle accidents in and around Kansas City can happen in many different ways. In some cases, these accidents happen because of the motorcycle operator’s error. However, more times than not, these accidents occur when another driver negligently operates his or her vehicle and collides with the motorcycle. Drivers behave in a negligent manner when they:
- Fail to follow the rules and regulations of the road, such as by speeding, running a red traffic light, or otherwise driving in a careless or reckless manner
- Operate their vehicles in a distracted manner, such as by texting while driving or making a phone call without using a hands-free device
- Weave in and out of busy highway traffic without using a turn signal
When a motorcycle rider suffers injuries in an accident that is caused by a negligent motor vehicle driver in Missouri, the accident victim may be able to file a claim or lawsuit against the negligent driver.
In some cases, these accidents also happen because of poor road conditions or road defects at construction sites. In those instances, the injured motorcycle rider may be able to assert a claim against the municipality, construction company, or other potentially responsible entity. An experienced Kansas City motorcycle accident lawyer can help you bring your claim or lawsuit against the proper person or legal entity and ensure that it is filed in a timely manner.
