MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS

MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS

Approximately 1734 motorcycle accidents took place in the State of Missouri in 2020 and all of those motorcycle accidents resulted in serious injuries. Left turning cars, lane switching, driving while under the influence of drugs, running a red light, ignoring yield and stop signs, tailgating, speeding, and distracted driving are the most common cause of motorcycle accidents and seem to be the leading cause for almost half of the reported accidents to Missourinet.com. You should have a motorcycle accident lawyer at Reinoehl Kehlenbrink, LLC on your side if you find yourself in this situation.

WHAT TO DO AFTER A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT

The first thing you should do is change the position of yourself and your motorcycle so that another collision doesn't occur. According to Missouri motorcycle accident laws, do not move or alter the positions of the vehicles involved in the crash if there are serious injuries involved. Now take a few deep breaths, try not to panic, and call 911 (never hesitate to call the police) so that the authorities can arrive on the scene and begin to sort things out. If you think you're injured, it's always best to get examined by a medical professional after an accident. Severe injuries may not be apparent right away, and periodically it will take days, weeks, or months for symptoms to arise. When speaking with emergency medical personnel, tell them precisely what you feel. Tell them each and every body part that hurts and be specific. Try to gather as much evidence as you can from other groups involved including witnesses contact information. Don't forget to take pictures of the scene so that you can later provide them to your motorcycle accident attorney for use in your case.

DO YOU NEED OUR SERVICES?

If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, you may be concerned about costly medical bills, the cost of rehabilitative therapy, etc. You might try to rely on the insurance companies and think they will do you justice by providing you with the monetary coverage you deserve to pay out all the medical and other bills caused by a motorcycle accident. Unfortunately, this simply is not the case. Insurance companies want to minimize the company loss on your claim. It doesn't matter how long you have paid premiums or for how much, how many years you have ridden without an accident, etc. Insurance companies will do everything in their power to avoid paying what your damages are worth. This is where the Illinois motorcycle accident attorneys and Missouri motorcycle accident attorneys at Reinoehl Kehlenbrink, LLC can make a huge difference in your case.
