Motorcycle Accidents in Missouri
A motorcycle accident is more likely to result in severe injuries for those involved. The fact that most motorcyclists have little more than helmets to protect them during accidents means they are at increased risk of suffering broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and even severe spinal cord injuries that result in paralysis.
Innocent people who are harmed and accidents caused by negligent motorists are able to seek financial compensation from. Filing a personal injury lawsuit can provide you with the compensation that you need and deserve.
Some of the damages that you can recover compensation for following your accident include:
- Lost wages/lost earning capacity: Lost wages can often be significant following a car accident. If you were working at the time of the accident and were injured as a result, you may not be able to continue working at your previous job. In some cases, you may also be entitled to benefits from your employer. If you were not working at the time of the accident, lost wages can still be recovered due to the reduced income you would have received if you had been able to work.
- Vehicle repair expenses: Vehicle repair costs can vary significantly depending on the damage done in a collision. Depending on the severity of the collision, repairs may need to be made to either the victim’s car or another vehicle involved in the crash. This could include things like replacing tires, fixing dents, or installing new brakes.
- Medical bill costs: Medical bills associated with accidents can also be steep. If you were injured in a car accident, it is likely that you will require medical attention. This could include visits to a doctor, hospitalization, or surgery. Medical expenses can range from simple treatments like painkillers to more serious issues like head trauma or broken bones.
If you have been impacted by an automobile accident in Missouri and suffered any type of loss or damage as a result, it is important to speak with a St. Charles motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible.
