Were you injured in a motorcycle accident? The right Missouri Motorcycle Accident Attorney can help you get the compensation that you need. Because a motorcycle provides its driver with far less protection than a car does, motorcycle accidents lead to more serious injuries. Those injured bear high costs. If another person’s negligence caused your injuries, that person must compensate you for all damages incurred.
Since there has been a recent increase in the number of motorcycles on the road, the number of motorcycle accidents have also increased. The increase is contributed to aging baby boomers. The average age of a motorcyclist is 48-year-old, which is much higher than past decades.
An increase in motorcycle accidents also means an increase in injuries. When you control for the number of miles driven, motorcycle accidents are 27 times more likely than car accidents are to result in death. Helmets help keep drivers protected, but are only 37% successful in death prevention.
The seriousness of the injuries makes these accidents very expensive. In 2010 an estimated $16 billion in damage resulted from motorcycle accidents. Those injured need a Missouri Motorcycle Accident Attorney to ensure proper compensation.

In essence, the attorney has to prove the most likely scenario is that the other party was negligent.
