Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Missouri

Around 900 people lose their lives in auto accidents throughout the state of Missouri each year. Although motorcycles make up a small portion of vehicles on our roadways, riders account for nearly 10% of those fatally injured. Riders have very little equipment available to protect them in collisions. This drastically increases the likelihood of fatal injuries. When victims lose their lives in accidents, as a result of other drivers’ actions, their families should reach out to a wrongful death attorney in Missouri as soon as possible.
