Motorcycle accidents are never anticipated, and people in Missouri — as in many other states — may think it is something that happens to other people. When they are involved in motorcycle accidents, the emotional and financial challenges could be overwhelming. Life-changing injuries and the deaths of loved ones have so many consequences, and dealing with it all may be just too much. Fortunately, no one has to cope alone through this difficult time.
The team of experienced attorneys at The Johnson Law Firm, LLC is here to provide support and guidance to victims of any vehicle accidents and are familiar with the challenges presented by severe injuries or loss of lives. Motorcyclists have a greater chance of suffering critical injuries than occupants of cars. Bike riders are not protected by the body of a vehicle, nor are they restrained by seat belts. Furthermore, the sheer weight of cars or trucks is enough to cause life-threatening injuries or worse.
Motorcycle accidents are often caused by the negligent actions of vehicle operators. These may include a rider being cut off on the highway, a driver disregarding a stop sign or red light, failing to yield when pulling onto the road from a driveway, and more. Furthermore, many motorcyclists fall victim to drivers who are intoxicated or distracted by mobile devices.
Those in Missouri who have been victims of motorcycle accidents caused by the negligence of other parties will find the necessary support and guidance with the lawyers at The Johnson Law Firm, LLC. The experienced attorneys will explain the legal rights of injured victims or of families who have lost loved ones. The circumstances of the accident will be assessed, and help will be provided for obtaining financial relief to assist with medical expenses, lost income, end-of-life arrangements and other documented financial losses.
