St. Louis Motorcycle Accident Injuries Attorney
Overview of the Types of Motorcycle Accidents Injuries
Even with a proper helmet and other types of protective safety gear, a motorcycle
rider faces serious injury or even death in a motorcycle accident. Motorcycle
riders simply don't have the same protection offered to drivers of cars, trucks,
vans, SUVs and other vehicles. With no steel cage or seatbelts or airbags
to protect them, motorcyclists can experience devastating injuries, even at slow
speeds. In fact, some motorcycle accident injuries may not even present themselves
right away. That's why it's important for victims of
motorcycle accidents to seek medical attention immediately after an accident,
even when they may feel that they are not injured. Certain types of brain
injuries, soft tissue injuries and others do not become evident at once. The
next step is to contact an experienced St. Louis motorcycle
accident lawyer to discuss how to move forward with a claim for compensation.

(with temporary or permanent physical and/or mental disabilities), facial injuries,
