Three Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Three Months
Motorcyclists return to the roads when the weather gets nicer. There also tend to be more motorcycles on the road as gas prices increase, so Missouri drivers may need to be especially alert when sharing the road this spring.
While motorcycles represent about 3 percent of all registered vehicles in the United States, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that motorcycle fatalities make up approximately 11 percent of all highway fatalities each year.
This means that while 20 percent of auto accidents result in injury or death, the number for motorcycle crashes is 80 percent.
If you have been hurt, or someone you love has been injured or died as the result of a motorcycle-automobile collision, contact the Missouri motorcycle accident lawyers at the S.E. Farris Law Firm to learn how or whether you have a personal injury or wrongful death claim. Call 314-A-LAWYER (314-252-9937) today for a free consultation or fill out our online contact form.
