St. Louis Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Maximizing Your Compensation After a Serious Motorcycle Crash
Motorcycles are known for offering both an adrenaline rush and particular freedom that cars simply cannot provide. The problem is, these marvels go hand in hand with little protection for the rider, which means motorcycle accidents often have serious consequences.

We work tirelessly to recover the maximum amount of compensation owed to you, whether that’s through a settlement with the negligent party’s insurance company or a jury verdict against them. What’s more, there is zero risk when working with our firm: If we don’t win your case, you won’t be charged a dime.

Do I Have a Motorcycle Injury Case?
To have grounds for a case, your lawyer must be able to prove to the court that the other party (or parties) was responsible for the motorcycle accident and, therefore, your injuries and losses (or damages). This simply means that the other party was negligent, either intentionally or unintentionally, and caused the crash.
A few examples include:
- Texting and driving
- Drunk/intoxicated driving
- Failing to check for motorcyclists when changing lanes
- Failing to yield to motorcyclists
- Executing dangerous lane changes
- Speeding and other reckless driving
How Much Is My Case Worth?
The value of your motorcycle accident case will depend on the details, such as the severity of your injury and the damages it caused you to suffer. A serious injury, such as a brain injury or burn, often results in pricey medical treatment and time off work, which means wage loss and further stress. In addition, the more severe your injury is, the more pain and suffering you are likely to experience. A good motorcycle accident lawyer will fight to recover compensation for all the damages you have incurred.
What if I’m Partially Liable for the Motorcycle Crash?
Fortunately, the state of Missouri grants accident victims the right to recover compensation regardless of whether they were partially to blame. Per the state’s “comparative negligence” policy, all parties involved will be assigned a percentage of liability. You can only recover as much as your percentage of liability allows.
For example, you can sue even if you are 80% at fault for the crash, but you will only be able to recover 20% of the settlement or verdict. Typically, it is not worth it for those who caused the accident to sue. If you are only about 50% or less at fault, however, legal action can be greatly beneficial.
