Injury Attorneys Serving St. Louis County, St. Charles County and Lincoln County Helps You Recover Damages From Motorcycle Accidents in Missouri
How does Missouri motorcycle law affect your right to compensation?
Missouri law places certain safety obligations on motorcyclists, and the Law Office of Kenneth P. Carp assists you in understanding both the protections and responsibilities that Missouri law places on bikers. Our law firm provides the information and legal advice you need to determine if you are entitled to monetary compensation for your injuries following a motorcycle crash. We have been representing motorcycle accident victims throughout Missouri since 1990.
You should be aware that the state of Missouri requires motorcyclists to:
- Obtain a valid motorcycle license
- Wear a helmet while riding or operating the motorcycle
- Following an accident, file suit for injuries within five years
- Prove outside negligence in order to receive compensation for injuries
If you have been in a motorcycle accident as a result of someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries and may be entitled to other damages as well. Proving negligence is an essential step in recovering compensation for your accident, as Missouri law holds the at fault party liable for any injuries or damages sustained during the crash. Our lawyers offer invaluable assistance in establishing fault for the accident and proving negligence in order to recover your owed compensation. If you are unsure who is at fault for your accident, our lawyers review the circumstances of your case thoroughly to identify any possible opportunity to recover damages for you.
Motorcycle wrecks often result in serious injuries or death
Injuries sustained during a motorcycle accident vary greatly depending on the cause and circumstances of the crash. These accidents result in a range of injuries, from broken bones to much more serious conditions. But because motorcycles offer little protection to the driver in the event of a crash, these accidents frequently cause catastrophic injuries and sometimes death. Some of the most common injuries caused by motorcycle crashes include:
- Broken bones & fractures
- Lacerations and disfigurement
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Burns and road rash
- Loss of limbs
