Fighting for the rights of the injured.

Motorcycle Accident Lawyer St. Louis, Missouri, and Illinois

Motorcycle Accident Lawyer St. Louis. Burger Law is a team of personal injury lawyers that specialize in all areas of personal injury including motorcycle accident cases. Every year in America, 4,000 people die and 80,000 are injured in motorcycle accidents. Motorcyclists are at a significantly higher risk of injury or death when another driver does not pay attention and causes an accident because they're offered little protection and forces on a rider's body are great. Although motorcycles account for a comparatively small portion of all traffic on our roads, motorcycle riders are 30 times more likely to die in a crash and five times more likely to be injured when compared to automobile drivers.

The Motorcycle Accident Lawyers at Burger Law have recovered millions of dollars to compensate victims of motorcycle accidents for injuries and damages caused by the negligent acts of another individual. When someone injures another person due to carelessness, they should be held responsible for the damages they've caused. Gary Burger and associates are committed to serving motorcycle accident victims with unbeatable support, and we will stand with you through each phase of your motorcycle accident case.

Often automobile drivers don't pay enough attention to motorcycles and do not appreciate their obligations to motorcyclists. Failure to keep a careful lookout, violating road signs and signals, failing to yield the right away, speeding, inattention, or drug and alcohol use are often encountered in motorcycle accident claims. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, allow the Gary Burger and his associates to fight for the compensation you deserve.

Your rights and responsibilities

Motorcycle Accident Claims

Can I sue for my Motorcycle Accident if it didn't involve another vehicle?

If a state or municipality fails to keep their roadways clear and safe for travelers, and your motorcycle accident happened because of an obstacle on the road or debris that caused your motorcycle to lose traction, you can pursue legal actions to recover damages. Every motorcycle accident claim is different, and some claims can be more complex and difficult than others. Our Motorcycle Accident Lawyers can take on your claim and guide you through the complexities of local and state laws to ensure that you get 100% of the care and recovery you deserve. We don't charge any fees unless we win your claim.

Responsibility of Motorists

Drivers are legally and morally obligated to exercise a reasonable degree of care by adhering to traffic laws and keeping their eyes on the road at all times. Unfortunately, motorcycle crashes are relatively common throughout the country, especially in areas where drivers are not used to sharing the road with motorcyclists.

If a driver fails to exercise their duty of care, whether due to intoxication, inexperience, or inattentiveness, they may crash into a law-abiding motorcyclist. Since drivers are required by law to remain aware of motorcyclists, they can be held liable in court for any injuries and property damage they cause by an experienced St. Louis motorcycle accident lawyer.

True Cost of Reckless Driving

Virtually everyone agrees on one thing: motorcycle accident injuries can be deadly. Accidents have the capacity to permanently disable riders and prevent them from ever living a normal life. To add insult to injury, motorcyclists are often faced with astronomical medical bills after being hit, and particularly serious injuries can lead to lifelong medical costs totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars. No one should have to pay for such costs when they are not responsible for the accident in the first place.

Take back your life.

A stark reality

Motorcycle Accident Injuries

While many motorcycle drivers are responsible and safe, it is an unfortunate fact that in auto accident injuries and fatalities, motorcycle riders are overrepresented. Because motorcyclists are exposed, and because other vehicles like passenger cars and commercial trucks are so much larger, the damage motorcycle riders sustain in accidents is often severe.

What Injuries Do Motorcyclists Sustain in Accidents?

Motorcyclists are extremely likely to be injured when a car or truck weighing thousands of tons collides with them, and injuries sustained as a result can last a lifetime. Even relatively minor injuries, such as bruises, broken bones, and road rash, can be painful and expensive to treat, and they can put a motorcyclist out of work for an extended period of time. Motorcyclists may never be able to return to work if they sustain one or more of the following injuries:

  • Brain damage
  • Head, neck, or spinal cord trauma
  • Internal bleeding or organ damage
  • Dismemberment
  • Burns
  • Permanent nerve damage

A serious motorcycle crash can leave you out of commission for a long period of time. Some injuries can even leave riders unable to walk or care for themselves. Injuries and conditions impacting the spinal cord or brain may leave a person fully or partially paralyzed, and in need of medical care for the rest of their lives. During this time, medical bills can start to rack up. If you want to obtain the compensation you need to pay your bills and maintain your lifestyle, a St. Louis motorcycle accident lawyer may be able to help. Let us advocate for you. Speak with a motorcycle wreck attorney with Burger Law today about your motorcycle accident claim.

Accident Injuries and Fatalities in Motorcycle Accidents

It is an undisputed fact that road users traveling by motorcycle are more at risk than those in other types of vehicles. In fact, motorcycles account for only 3% of all registered vehicles in the United States and far less vehicles on the road per mile, yet motorcyclists make up 17% of all traffic fatalities according to the National Safety Council. For every mile traveled, motorcycle drivers and passengers are 27 times more likely to die in an accident than their counterparts in enclosed vehicles, as calculated by the Insurance Information Institute When you or a loved one have suffered any injuries or loss of life after being struck in an accident while riding a motorcycle, it's important that you contact a skilled motorcycle accident attorney right away. Burger Law knows how to help.
