Auto accident with motorcycle injures riders; driver arrested

Motorcyclists are at risk of being injured or killed in an accident in Missouri and across the nation. Every time they go out on the road on their bikes, they are placing their trust in other motorists that they will obey the rules of the road, keep a close eye on them and give them sufficient room to maneuver and remain safe. Unfortunately, there are many drivers who do not follow the basic rules and even violate the law when encountering motorcyclists. This can lead to accidents with serious injuries and fatalities. After a biker has been injured or a family has lost a loved one in a motorcycle crash, it is crucial to understand the steps necessary to file a lawsuit for compensation.

A crash between a car and a motorcycle sent the two people on the bike to the hospital. The accident happened in the mid-afternoon hours. According to the investigation, the 56-year-old driver of the car turned into the path of the motorcycle and the bike hit the car. The male rider, 61, and his female passenger, 59, were hospitalized. As law enforcement checked on the driver, they found that he was under the influence of drugs. He was cited for that, for driving carelessly and imprudently and for not having insurance. He was arrested for these violations.

It can be difficult to move forward after suffering serious injuries in a motorcycle accident. Because motorcycle riders and their passengers are so vulnerable to severe damage - even if they are wearing protective equipment - the aftermath can be costly with medical expenses, lost wages and much more. The injuries can be so severe that lost limbs, head injuries, spinal cord injuries and fatalities are common. If the driver was reckless and did not have insurance, it can be even harder. To cover for all that was lost, it is essential to understand the value of a legal filing and how to go about filing one.

In this crash, the two people on the motorcycle were injured when a car entered their path. Since the driver was found to be under the influence of drugs, the injured people have a strong case to recover compensation for what happened. Given the circumstances and that the driver did not have insurance, the riders must make certain they are protected. Discussing matters with an attorney experienced could help a motorcyclist after a crash. This ensures that a victim is aware of their rights and how best to protect them.
