Representing Injured Motorcyclists & Their Families in Missouri
Driving a motorcycle can be incredibly dangerous. This doesnâ€™t mean that you donâ€™t have a right to do it, though.
In fact, most motorcycle operators are responsible and law-abiding people who treat their transportation choice with the seriousness that it requires and deserves.
Unfortunately, others donâ€™t always show motorcyclists that same respect. As a result, we see entirely too many Missourians injured while driving a motorcycle on our highways and interstates.
Thatâ€™s certainly true in Leeâ€™s Summit, where auto accidents continue to cause heartache and suffering for so many families.
At Horn Law, weâ€™ve seen one tragedy after another on Jackson County and Cass County roads. Specifically, accidents are common on:
- Interstate 70
- Interstate 470
- Jefferson Highway (â€œThe Palm to Pine Highwayâ€)
- U.S. Highway 40
- U.S. Highway 50
- Missouri Route 291
- Missouri Route 150
- Missouri Route 350
Among all vehicle crashes in the greater Kansas City metro, those involving a motorcycle are especially likely to result in serious injury or death.
Indeed, Leeâ€™s Summit motorcycle accidents frequently claim the motorcyclistâ€™s life, regardless of who was at-fault in the crash. Motorcycles offer very little protection to their drivers and passengers, so the force of impact alone can be deadly.
As Leeâ€™s Summit motorcycle accident attorneys, our firm is dedicated to helping accident victims and grieving families during one of the most difficult chapters in their lives.
If you are a motorcyclist who has suffered injury because of someone elseâ€™s negligence on the roads, you may be entitled to considerable compensation for your damages, including:
- Medical costs
- Hospital bills
- Out-of-pocket expenses related to the accident
- Motorcycle repair and other property damage
- Wage/income loss
- Lost earning capacity
- Partial & Full Disability
- Loss of quality of life
- All personal losses
If you are a close family member of someone who was killed in a motorcycle crash in Missouri, you may be entitled to wrongful death damages under the laws of this state. Those damages might include:
- Medical expenses for the victim prior to his or her death
- Burial expenses
- Funeral expenses
- Loss of love and affection from the victim
- Loss of your loved oneâ€™s financial support
- The value of other support that you would have received from the victim
- Wages and income that the victim would likely have earned, if still living
- More, depending on the circumstances of your case
Unfortunately, claiming such compensation is rarely as simple as filling out a form.
Insurance companies typically make victims put up a fight, despite the fact that theyâ€™re already dealing with so much distress. Our Leeâ€™s Summit motorcycle accident attorneys can step in and insist that the defendants step up to the plate.
Your legal rights arenâ€™t subject to an insurance companyâ€™s approval. Donâ€™t let them dictate the terms by which you recover. Contact Horn Law instead.
What Makes Horn Law Different?
Horn Law takes a different approach to motorcycle accident litigation â€“ one that emphasizes compassion toward our clients, but also an aggressive fight for justice against the defendants (usually an insurance company).
We know how insurance companies operate. In fact, our firmâ€™s founding attorney â€“ Mr. Douglas R. Horn â€“Â spent years working closely with those insurance companies in cases just like yours. Today, he uses his experience to your advantage.
Horn Lawâ€™s Lead Litigation Attorney â€“ Ms. Laurie Del Percio â€“Â shares a similar background, having defended some of the largest insurance companies in the country before dedicating herself to victimâ€™s rights here at Horn Law.
Together, they head an aggressive and effective team of victimâ€™s advocates for the people of Leeâ€™s Summit and beyond.
The major insurance companies operating within Missouri know who we are. They know that we mean business, and that we insist on fairness and comprehensive compensation for our clients. Accordingly, theyâ€™re often eager to settle on favorable terms.
While we can never guarantee a specific outcome in any case, you can rest assured that Horn Law is fighting to maximize your compensation and procure the very best outcome for you and your family.
