Over 5,000 motorcyclists die in crashes each year across the United States. Mile for mile, bikers are 28 times more likely to die in crashes than other motorists. These staggering statistics are concerning and represent a need for change. Sadly, many motorists drive while distracted or simply do not exercise proper caution. Others make the poor choice of driving while impaired. These motorists jeopardize their lives as well as the lives of everyone else on the road. At the Law Firm of Kass & Moses, we believe that motorists should be held accountable when their behaviors lead to crashes that hurt or kill bikers.
Motorcycle Accident Attorneys Serving Kansas City, St. Louis, Springfield, and Beyond
Your life and well-being has value. Many people rely on you: your employer, your parents, your children, and your friends and other loved ones. Without you, these people would suffer immensely. While no amount of money can provide adequate compensation for the loss of life, we do believe that motorists absolutely must be held accountable when crashes occur.
In other cases, where bikers are left facing major injuries, they should be adequately compensated with enough money to cover their medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages. So often, police officers skew accident reports in favor of motorists. There is a bias against against bikers that is simply unfair. Most bikers are law-abiding citizens simply enjoying one of the greatest thrills in the world. They should not be treated unfairly due to the actions of a few. At the Law Firm of Kass & Moses, we hold bikers in the highest regard. We see the immense good that bikers do for all that they know and love. We urge any biker hurt in a motorcycle crash to contact us at 1-800-MOTORCYCLE today.
