In Missouri, it is rare to witness individuals traveling on motorcycles during the winter months. However, when the temperatures are warming, it is common to see numerous motorcyclists on the roadways. Individuals that operate a motorcycle are placing themselves at risk of being seriously injured or killed in the event of an accident. The lack of protection offered by the motorcycle causes the rider to be defenseless. While some motorcycle accidents are caused by the reckless actions of the rider, thousands of motorcycle accidents are caused by the negligence of other motorists. Inattentive and distracted driving are often the cause of motorcycle accidents due to the fact that it can be difficult to see motorcyclists on the roadways. In order to hold an at-fault driver accountable for their negligence, it is necessary to contact a motorcycle accident attorney.
