When a motorcycle is involved in an accident, there is often a higher risk of being injured then in an accident that involves a car or truck. As a result of this elevated risk, both the drivers of the vehicles and the motorcycles need to exercise extreme caution when they come into close proximity of each other. Unfortunately, this caution does not always occur, resulting in serious Missouri motorcycle accidents that can leave lasting effects on all those who were involved.
Missouri police have reported that a woman was transported to an area hospital after she was involved in an accident with a pickup truck. The Woman has been listed as being in critical condition by hospital officials. She was transported to the medical center by ambulance following the early afternoon incident.
Police have stated that the 33-year-old driver of the pickup was ticketed by police for failing to yield. Police allege that the man pulled his truck out in front of the motorcycle at an intersection. It is unclear whether any further charges will be brought against the man.
A large number of motorcycle accidents in Missouri can be prevented each year if proper precaution is used. However, this does not always occur, leaving victims of accidents such as this one, struggling to recover. In such cases, finding the right care is crucial, a care that may be paid for if the victim finds a basis to file a personal injury suit, which will allow them to focus on what is important, their full and speedy recovery.
