St. Louis Motorcycle Accident Injury Attorneys
Motorcycle Accidents in Missouri
Motorcycle accidents are some of the most disastrous our injury attorneys have seen. Many of these accidents are entirely avoidable and are due to another driver’s inattention or lack of knowledge of a motorcycle rider’s rights on the road. Several of our lawyers are motorcyclists and have firsthand knowledge of the dangers presented by other drivers on the road. We understand the general bias against riders and how to minimize that effect on your case.

In 2010, Missouri attempted to repeal its long-standing helmet law. Luckily this proposal was quashed by the legislature and helmets remain mandatory in the state, and for good reason. Your chances of surviving a motorcycle crash without a helmet are dramatically reduced. Even a low speed impact or single vehicle accident can result in catastrophic injuries or death if the operator is not hearing a helmet. Our lawyers recommend that operators of dirt bikes and ATVs also wear helmets at all times, which is something currently not required by law.
What Should You do if you are Injured in a Motorcycle Accident?
- Get the treatment you need. Motorcycle accidents often times result in an immediate trip to the emergency room. But that may not be good enough. Get follow-up care from a specialist.
- Do not speak to the other driver's insurance claims adjuster.
- Do not give a recorded statement to anyone.
- Make sure police have created an accurate police report of your crash.

Common types of injury from a motorcycle crash can include bone fractures,
deep abrasions, and
internal organ damage. It is recommended that any victim seek quality medical care at a level-1 trauma center if you are seriously injured on a motorcycle. Yes, protective clothing and helmets have come a long way in the past 15 years, but nothing will ever provide total protection from serious injury or death. The general physics of a bad motorcycle crash favor the driver of the passenger vehicle every single time.
