Webster Groves, Missouri is a perfect location for riding your motorcycle. Just outside the St. Louis city limits, Webster Groves is safer than the city with a smaller community, less traffic, and slower speed limits.
Sadly, the thriving suburb isn’t without its faults. While you are driving on the tree-lined streets, you may be involved in a motorcycle accident.
At Finney Law Office, LLC, we understand that riding a motorcycle is more than just a mode of transportation. It’s a lifestyle—and that lifestyle can be easily taken away after a motorcycle accident.
After an accident, you may be severely injured— and your motorcycle totaled. Unlike car accidents, there are no small accidents with motorcycles. Motorcycles do not provide a safety net that cars do, so motorcycle accidents almost always cause traumatic injuries. The most common injuries are road rash and burns, broken arms and legs, and head trauma.
Not only will you have to deal with your physical injuries but also the burden of financial problems. Medical bills will add up, and you may not be able to work while you are recovering.
Motorcycle accidents often leave victims feeling frustrated and angry—not only because of the physical and financial troubles—but because accidents are increasingly caused by avoidable circumstances. Distracted driving, drunk driving, and aggressive driving are common factors in motorcycle accidents, as well as construction and road conditions.
Because there is often long-term maintenance on the main highways, especially construction on I-44 and I-64, traffic can build up and cause dangerous road conditions in the suburb.
