Q
How can I prove that I had the right of way and was doing nothing wrong when my Missouri motorcycle accident happened?

A

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.
