Motorcycle Accident Attorneys In Jefferson City

If you were injured or lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident in Central Missouri, you are not alone. Motorcycle accidents occur far more often than car wrecks, and the fatality rate is much higher.

Many motorcycle-related injuries occur without a collision. A driver may fail to yield the right of way or encroach on the motorcycle’s lane, causing the rider to lose control because of the threat of a collision; resulting in serious injury. When a motorcycle is struck, the rider is often thrown against the pavement or another vehicle. Serious injuries make both medical care and legal representation essential for recovery.

At Grayson & Grayson, our attorneys understand the complexities of motorcycle accident cases and can capably guide you to recovery of compensation from negligent parties.

Motorcycle Accident Attorneys In Jefferson City

Despite how safe and appropriate a rider may drive, the predominant cause of motorcycle injuries results from automobile drivers failing to recognize motorcycles in traffic.

Because the rider is mostly unprotected, these accidents result in a wide range of injuries to the rider. The rider can receive a concussion or brain damage from striking an object or the pavement, even with a helmet. Joint breaking at the elbows, shoulders, pelvis, knees, wrist and fingers are common injuries. Road rash where the rider’s body slides across the pavement can be minor or very severe. “Biker’s arm” can occur when the nerves are damaged in the rider’s arm causing paralysis. Facial disfigurement can occur when there is trauma to the rider’s face.
