Our team at the Gartner Law Firm has more than 25 years of experience ensuring that victims of motorcycle accidents obtain the compensation that they deserve in the St. Charles and St. Peters, Missouri areas. We understand that a motorcycle accident can have serious repercussions, both from a physical and a financial point of view. Our experienced personal injury litigators have useful insight about your accident and what to expect.

Who Will Be Held Responsible? 

Various parties can be held liable and more than one party can be at fault depending on the circumstances of the accident. Due to the public’s perception of motorcycles as dangerous and fast vehicles, the riders themselves are often blamed for their accidents. An experienced motorcycle accident lawyer will help you demonstrate who is truly responsible for the crash: whether it be a negligent driver that cut you off or a truck that did not stop in time, we will ensure that your rights are protected. 

Your First Steps After a Motorcycle Accident

If you are the victim of an accident that could have lasting consequences on your physical wellbeing, an experienced motorcycle accident attorney should get involved as soon as possible and, ideally, before you give a statement to anyone, including your insurance company. We will ensure that all circumstances surrounding the accident are well documented, that a proper investigation is conducted, and that evidence of all medical expenses that you incur are retained. 

We recommend that you write down a detailed account of the circumstances surrounding the accident, as insurance companies will do everything in their power to put the blame on you.

If You Are Seeking Out an Attorney on Behalf of Your Loved One

If your loved one was hurt in a motorcycle accident, we will do all that is in our power to obtain appropriate monetary compensation for their injuries, either through reaching a fair and reasonable settlement with the insurance company or through a personal injury lawsuit, if someone else is at fault. 

If your loved one has lost their life to such an accident due to the fault of another driver on the road, we can prepare a strong wrongful death lawsuit with the goal of protecting your family’s financial future. 

Why Should You Hire a Missouri Motorcycle Attorney?

When a motorcycle accident happens, the consequences are usually grave due to the sheer size difference of the vehicles. In addition to dealing with the physical consequences, you and your family will have to deal with the other driver involved, their insurance provider, and their lawyers all trying to blame you for the accident. 

We have extensive experience reviewing the circumstances surrounding motorcycle accidents and seeking fair compensation for our clients. While we always prefer to reach a deal with the responsible parties outside of court, we are also fierce litigators whom you can count on to take appropriate legal action if needed to ensure that your financial future is protected.

Injured in a Motorcycle Accident?

We Can Help You

Proving Liability

Motorcycle accidents are often due to the carelessness of other drivers on the road; they are driving bigger vehicles and tend to not pay attention to others, especially when switching lanes on the highway or stopping behind a motorcycle in traffic or at a stop sign. Most accidents happen quickly and can be attributed to sheer negligence from the liable party. We will make sure that you are not blamed for your injuries and for damages to your motorcycle. 

Negotiating with Insurance Companies

Insurance companies will try to limit their financial liability by either putting the blame on you or by offering you financial compensation to cover your injuries. While it may seem tempting to accept right away due to your medical bills piling up, you should always consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer prior to making a decision in order to make sure that you are getting the maximum amount that you are entitled to and to ensure that your rights are protected. 

Ensuring That Negligent Parties are Held Accountable

It can be difficult to determine who is responsible for your accident. Our role is to take that burden off you by asking you the right questions, reviewing the police report, and available evidence to determine who is liable for your injuries or for your loved one’s death and ensure that they are held accountable.

Obtaining Appropriate Financial Compensation

Victims of a motorcycle accident often suffer serious and sometimes permanent physical injuries. If you are the victim of such injuries, our goal is to ensure that you receive reasonable financial compensation to cover the damages sustained. 

Victims of Motorcycle Accidents Should Be Able to Count on Experienced Litigators

We know that determining the extent of your damages is complicated and that putting a financial value on less tangible consequences of your accident (such as loss of earning capacity and pain and suffering) can seem insurmountable. We will be by your side from beginning to end.
