Q How can I prove that I had the right of way and was doing nothing wrong when my Missouri motorcycle accident happened?
It’s unfortunate that this question even has to be asked. Despite thousands of conscientious motorcycle riders, some people still have the misperception that motorcycle riders are typically reckless speedsters with a history of making poor decisions on the road.
This could not be farther from the truth in most motorcycle accident stories, but motorcycle riders who have been injured in a serious crash often have to fight against such a stereotype. This makes getting compensation for your injuries more difficult, but not impossible.
Any of the following can help you prove that you are a conscientious driver and that the accident was not your fault:
- You wear a helmet.
- You took a Missouri motorcycle safety or defensive driving course.
- You have no record of speeding tickets or other moving violations.
- The other driver has a spotty driving record.
- The police report shows that you had right of way.
- Witnesses can attest to how the St. Louis motorcycle crash occurred.
