Motorcycle Accidents in Missouri
Every year, motorcycle accidents in the United States take the lives of thousands of people. Tens of thousands of other riders are left with serious injuries that impact their lives forever. Unfortunately, we see many people suffer from traumatic brain injuries, whiplash, and other serious injuries as a result of negligence.
There are many factors that can contribute to a car crash, but some of the leading causes in Missouri include:
- Speeding: driving above the posted speed limit is one of the most common factors in crashes involving motorcycles, and can increase the severity of an accident.
- Distracted driving: anything that takes a driver’s attention away from the road can be a distraction, from using a cell phone to talking to passengers in the backseat.
- Driving while impaired: alcohol and drugs both impair a driver’s ability to operate a vehicle safely.
- Reckless driving: aggressive or careless driving behaviors, such as tailgating or switching lanes in a reckless manner, can lead to serious accidents.
