Recovering Compensation for Life-Altering Injuries

Without the protection and safety features that a passenger vehicle has to offer, motorcyclists frequently suffer very severe injuries if they are involved in an accident, including injuries like road rash, lacerations, broken bones, head trauma, and spinal cord damage.

Catastrophic injuries such as these require extensive medical treatment and therapy, and may prevent you from working for several months to a year or longer. Many victims of motorcycle accidents never fully regain the life they led prior to their accident.

Our team of Kansas City motorcycle injury lawyers at Peterson & Associates helps clients recover compensatory damages for expenses related to their injury, including:

  • Medical treatment: surgery, recovery, physical therapy, medications, etc.
  • Work expenses: lost wages, loss of future earning potential, and vocational rehabilitation.
  • Non-economic damages: pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life.
  • Wrongful death damages: funeral and burial costs, loss of income from a bread earner.

If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury in a motorcycle accident, Peterson & Associates is here to fight for the compensation you deserve!

Common Causes of Motorcycle Crashes

Most motorcycle accidents are caused by negligent driving on the part of an automobile driver.

In many cases, drivers just aren’t paying attention. Motorcycles can stop and maneuver more quickly than cars can, and in many cases, can be rear-ended or hit easily by drivers who are unaware of their surroundings. Speeding, impaired driving, moving violations, and more can also contribute to injury or death in a motorcycle accident.

Our Kansas City motorcycle accident lawyers are skilled in investigating all the potential factors involved in a collision and have pursued favorable outcome for injured motorcyclists in the past. With more than $500 million collected in verdicts and settlements*, you can be confident in our firm’s legal expertise.

What to Do in the Event of an Accident

If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, follow these steps to protect yourself immediately after the incident:

  1. Safety First: Move away from vehicles if possible and call 911 to report the accident. Don’t wait to get medical attention for any injuries you may have suffered! If you aren’t severely injured, be sure to check on other people involved in the collision.
  2. Information Second: Gathering information is important, but make sure you do it once you are safe and received any emergency medical care needed. If you’re able, take pictures of the scene, gather information from the other driver and witnesses, and make sure to get the police report when available.
