Representing Injured Motorcycle Victims in Blue Springs, Missouri
Missouri highways are dangerous places for motorcycle drivers.
While bikers unquestionably have a right to use the roads, other drivers frequently fail to respect that right. Accidents transpire accordingly, and in most cases, the resulting injuries are overwhelmingly severe.
So many of these cases are heartbreaking. With very little to protect them from physical harm, motorcyclists often survive with severe injuries or permanent, life-altering disabilities. Many do not survive at all.
Victims and their families are left reeling, unsure of where to turn. Meanwhile, medical bills (and, in too many cases, funeral expenses) pile up. The nightmare only grows worse in the days and weeks that follow.
The at-fault party’s insurance policy provides some relief, but the insurance companies almost always attempt to downsize a claim. Our office knows those tactics inside and out.
If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle crash caused by someone else’s negligence – or if you’ve suddenly lost someone you love – our office can help you get the financial relief that you need to start putting the pieces together again.
Moreover, we can fight for your rights without causing you more hardship. We handle everything. And we won’t charge a single penny for our time unless (and until) we’re successful.
At Horn Law, we’re fighting for you.
What Causes Blue Springs Motorcycle Accidents?
There’s a startling misconception out there that motorcyclists cause most of their own accidents, or that motorcycles somehow endanger the other vehicles on the road. In fact, statistics show us that just the opposite is true.
Most motorcycle accidents in Kentucky are caused by the negligence of another driver. Occasionally, the biker’s own behavior may play a role, as well. Nevertheless, in every case, this much is clear: Bikers have an equal right to the road.
Common causes of motorcycle accidents in Missouri include:
- Vehicles that change lanes, directly into a motorcycle’s path
- Making a left turn in front of a motorcycle (often as a result of misjudging the motorcycle’s speed)
- Drivers who forget to look for motorcycles before turning
- Opening a car door in front of an oncoming motorcycle
- Following a motorcycle too closely
- Driving recklessly or disrespectfully around motorcycles because of misinformed opinions about motorcyclists
- Drunk driving
- Drugged driving
- Driver fatigue
- Texting while driving
- Other forms of distracted driving
- Road rage
Investigations Are Key to Motorcycle Accident Claims in Missouri
The issue of fault is paramount to any motorcycle accident claim in Missouri. The police will investigate the accident, and so will the insurance company on the other side. But none of those parties are putting your best interests forward. In fact, the insurance company is actively working against injured people.
At Horn Law, we work with independent, specialized investigative experts to thoroughly investigate your accident, and identify every source of evidence. Securing evidence early on is one of the keys to successful results.
