Motorcycle riders know: eventually a crash is likely to happen
As a St. Louis motorcycle crash injury attorney, I understand that so oftentimes, inattentive drivers who are not keeping a careful watch for motorcycle drivers can cause life-changing, or worse, life-ending injuries to motorcyclists on the road. When motorcycles are hit by cars or trucks, the damages to the driver of the motorcycle are heartbreaking. As a motorcycle enthusiast myself for several years (going back to my first dirtbike as a child) I understand that motorcycle drivers do everything they can to watch out for dangerous, inattentive drivers, but sometimes nothing can be done to avoid a crash.
CAUTION ISN’T ALWAYS ENOUGH:
As a motorcycle rider in Missouri, we are taught to always be in defensive mode while on our bikes. SIPDE, (Scan, Identify, Predict, Decide, Execute) is taught to all riders as part of the permit and licensing process for a motorcycle license endorsement. One thing riders understand, however, is that even though we might do everything in our power to be safe while riding, there are drivers out there who fail to keep a lookout for motorcycles and eventually, crashes are going to happen. When crashes happen, it is imperative to have the right lawyer for your representation. Motorcyclists, even more so than other drivers are at risk to suffer terrible injuries during a crash. Because so much can be at stake after a motorcycle crash injury, you must make sure that your interests are properly being represented to the insurance companies in order to ensure you get the best treatment possible and are compensated fairly for all of your damages.
