Kansas City Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Helping You Recover After Serious Motorcycle Crash

As a motorcyclist, you have the same right to drive on the road as any other motorist. You also have the right to file a claim if you were injured in an accident that was caused by the negligence of another driver. Motorcyclists are much more vulnerable to serious damages due to the nature of their vehicles. Even in low-impact collisions, motorcyclists can be exposed to serious injury or wrongful death. If you or someone you love has been injured in a motorcycle accident, DiPasquale Moore can help protect your rights. Our Kansas City motorcycle accident lawyers can help you recover the compensation you need to pay for sudden medical expenses and get your life back on track.

What Can Our Kansas City Law Firm Do For You?

Dealing with a difficult insurance company or agent is the last thing you want to worry about when you are suffering debilitating injuries, which is why hiring a Kansas City motorcycle accident attorney can be so beneficial to you. The team at DiPasquale Moore can fight for a fair settlement with the other driver’s insurance company so that you receive the financial support you need to cover your expenses. We can also prepare your case for court in the event a settlement can’t be reached. We do this by gathering witness statements and medical records, investigating your crash, and finding innovative ways to develop your case. There may be a time limit on your claim, so contact us today. We work efficiently to strengthen your case and improve your chances of securing compensation, sometimes up to three times more than you would receive on your own.

What Damages Can I Be Compensated For After a Motorcycle Accident?

There are many unexpected expenses that come to light in the wake of a serious motorcycle accident. From medical bills to property damage, you may be wondering how exactly you are going to pay these expenses, especially if you are unable to return to work for a long period of time. While achieving compensation cannot change what happened, it can help you get your life back on track after a devastating injury or loss, covering
economic and non-economic damages, such as:

  • Past and future medical costs
  • Emergency treatment costs
  • Property loss or property damage
  • Past and future loss of wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship or consortium
  • Funeral and burial expenses

While your settlement with the insurance company should cover these expenses in some cases, you may be able to pursue further damages through a personal injury lawsuit.

Do You Have to Wear a Motorcycle Helmet in Missouri?

Missouri requires people riding a motorcycle who are 25 and younger to wear a helmet. If you are 26 or older, have a full license, and have health insurance, you can choose whether or not to wear a motorcycle helmet while riding. The main caveat is your insurance must be able to cover any medical bills you have in the even you suffer a head related injury in a crash. If you are legally required to wear a helmet and choose not to, you can be fined.

However, even if you fall into the category of not being legally required to wear a helmet, there are plenty of reasons to wear one. The number one reason is your health and safety. Without a helmet you will have greater risk of brain injuries, disability, or even death. Since the universal helmet laws in Missouri were removed in 2020, motorcycle related brain injuries and deaths have skyrocketed.

Who and What is the Cause of Your Accident?

40% of motorcycle crashes are single-vehicle accidents. The other 60%, however, are often caused by other drivers. When someone is operating a motor vehicle, they owe a duty of care to those around them. They fulfill this duty by following traffic laws, driving cautiously, and paying attention to their surroundings. If they fail to exhibit reasonable care, they can be held civilly accountable. Dangerous driving behaviors that often contribute to motorcycle accidents:

  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Failure to check blind spots
  • Speeding and reckless driving
  • Driving under the influence
  • Right-of-way errors
  • Distracted drivers

If you have been harmed or lost a loved one due to someone’s inattention or careless error, you should hold them accountable. Our Kansas City motorcycle accident attorneys are here to help you get the justice you deserve.
