When you ride your motorcycle, you’re extremely vulnerable to the dangerous effects of other drivers’ negligence. Because there is nothing to protect you from the impact of a motorcycle accident, your physical, financial, and emotional losses can be immense.

If you or someone you care about have been injured in a motorcycle accident — or worse, suffered an injury due to another motorist’s negligence — it’s time to seek the professional legal counsel of an experienced St. Louis motorcycle accident lawyer.

Common Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents are so dangerous that they can lead to virtually any kind of serious injury, including deadly injuries. Some of the most common include:

  • Broken bones
  • Road rash, which refers to the cuts, abrasions, and burns sustained when dragged across the road and that – when on or near the face – can be disfiguring
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Spinal cord injuries, including paralysis
  • Internal injuries

Staying Safe On Your Motorcycle

When you’re on your bike, the risks are so great that it’s important to take every safety precaution, including:

  • Remembering that far too many motorists fail to implement due diligence and watch for motorcyclists in their midst, which makes it important to proceed as if drivers can’t see you
  • Avoiding other motorists’ blind spots
  • Wearing a well-fitting motorcycle helmet that meets all the safety requirements
  • Obeying the speed limit and all the rules of the road
  • Keeping in mind that you’re more vulnerable to the dangerous effects of bad weather and proceed accordingly

The Motorcycle Helmet Laws in St. Louis

Since 2020, only the following motorcyclists are required by law to wear helmets in Missouri:

  • Those who are 25 years old and younger
  • Those who are issued an instruction permit – regardless of age

Other motorists can forego the requirement as long as they carry the necessary health insurance. All motorcyclists are, nonetheless, strongly encouraged to wear a helmet every time they ride.
