Motorcyclists are more likely to be involved in devastating or fatal accidents than any other driver on the road. In the latest statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), it shows that 4,462 motorcyclists were involved in fatal accidents and more than 90,000 were involved in injury accidents in 2009.
The same road rights and laws apply to motorcyclists as to every other motor vehicle on the road.

Serious Representation for Serious Motorcycle Injuries
The severity of motorcycle accident injuries requires immediate medical attention. The cost of medical care can be burdensome, especially when an insurance company automatically suspects fault on behalf of the motorcyclist and works against him or her to minimize their recovery, which is common.
Honesty and staunch advocacy from an experienced lawyer is critical. We protect your interests in communications and negotiations with insurance investigators, adjusters and lawyers. We inspect accident sites independent of insurance companies and law enforcement, establishing fault and the true value of your claim, including:
- Medical costs
- Travel costs
- Lost wages
- Emotional trauma
- Diminished quality of life
- Long-term care
Missouri Is a Comparative Negligence State: What Does This Mean?
Even if you are 99 percent at fault, you can recover damages. However, recovery is reduced by the percentage of fault. If you suffer $100,000 in losses, but are found 60 percent at fault, you can recover only $40,000. The more fault an insurance company can shift onto you, the less it has to pay in settling your claim.
We fight for your deserved compensation in rear-end, hit-and-run, sideswipe, T-bone and any other accident type involving serious injuries such as:
- Head, neck and back injuries
- Burn and disfigurement injuries
- Shoulder injuries
- Broken limbs from accidents
- Brain and spinal cord injuries
- Hip fractures
