Recovering Compensation for Injured Bicyclists in Missouri
Riding a bike is one of the most fun, healthy ways to commute, but it comes with its dangers. When a bicyclist is hit by a vehicle, motorcyclist, or even another bicyclist, the injuries can be severe and lifelong.

How to Know if You Have a Bicycle Accident Case
If your bicycle accident was mostly or entirely the result of another’s negligent actions, then you likely have a case.
Many bike crashes are caused by negligent drivers and truckers failing to share the road with bicyclists. Often, these motorists do not see bicyclists until it is too late.
A few of the most common negligent causes of bicycle accidents include:
- Unsafe left-hand turns
- Merging without looking for bicyclists
- Changing lanes without looking for bicyclists
- Backing up without looking or checking blind spots
- Opening a car door, especially the driver-side door, when parked
- Passing bicyclists without giving them enough room
What if I Contributed to the Crash?
It is possible for an injured bicyclist to be the victim of negligence, yet share some of the blame for the accident. If this applies to you, you may still have the chance to recover compensation.
The state of Missouri follows a “comparative negligence” rule, which means that an injured bicyclist will have their compensation adjusted by however much they contributed to the crash, or their “share of liability.” In other words, injured bicyclists may recover compensation for any damages the negligent party caused them. They will not be compensated for the damages they caused themselves, however.
