Motorcycle Accident Claim Considerations in Missouri
Like other auto accidents, motorcycle accidents are affected by governing state laws. If you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident in St. Louis, the governing laws and statutes of Missouri will apply.
Insurance system – As an at-fault state, a motorcycle accident victim must pursue compensation from the liable party’s insurance company.
Statute of limitations – In Missouri, the statute of limitations for auto accidents is 5 years. This means the accident victims must file a claim within 5 years from the date of the accident. In the event that the accident resulted in death, surviving family members have 5 years from the date that the death occurred to pursue a motorcycle accident lawsuit.
Accidents not involving another motor vehicle – In some cases, motorcycle accidents may not involve another vehicle. In accidents where poorly designed roads or road debris caused the accident, motorcyclists may still be eligible to pursue compensation. States and municipalities have a legal obligation to keep their roadways safe.
Responsibility of Motorists – Like truck or car accidents, a motorcycle accident is often caused by human error. Other drivers on the road have a legal obligation to obey traffic laws and act under a standard level of care. Drivers who fail to act under a standard level of care may be found negligent. This includes driving under the influence (DUI), failing to see motorcycles, and not obeying traffic laws.
Proving fault – In order to file a successful claim and have a strong case, fault must be proven. This means that the party responsible for causing the motorcycle crash must have breached a duty or level of care that otherwise would have not resulted in the accident or associated injuries. To prove fault in a motorcycle accident, the following must be true:
- Duty: The defendant (driver or operator of another motor vehicle) failed to uphold their legal obligation to act in a way that would not cause injuries to another party.
- Breach of Duty: Establishing that the defendant breached their duty of care or legal obligation to act in a way that would not injure others must be legally established to hold the defendant or their insurance company liable for damages that occurred as a result of the traffic collision.
- Causation: To seek full compensation for damages, it must be proven that the crash was the cause of injuries.
- Damages: Physical or emotional damages must have resulted from the accident in order for the victim to pursue compensation.
State Laws – Governing state laws such as traffic and motorcycle rider protection laws such as Missouri’s Helmet Law can also have an impact on cases.
If any of the above apply to your case, a St. Louis auto accident lawyer at Brown & Crouppen may be able to help you file a claim and recover compensation for damages. In some cases, other legal considerations may apply, and our lawyers will provide details about unique considerations that apply to your case, and ultimately pursue legal action to hold the liable party responsible.
