St. Louis County has a number of neighborhoods to explore on your motorcycle. Whether you’re riding alone, with a loved one, or with friends, there are many St. Louis County sites that are worth seeing from on the back of a bike.
Many of our motorcycle clients from St. Louis County have told us about their favorite streets to ride around the city. Some like to ride in high-traffic areas, where they can stop at local restaurants and art galleries. Others prefer the back roads and stopping at parks around Wildwood or Maryland Heights. Some take the ride out to the Cahokia Mounds and reflect on times long passed.
Unfortunately, over two thousand Missouri residents are injured in motorcycle accidents each year, and almost all of them have a reason to file a personal injury claim.
Motorcycle accidents can impact a person’s life physically, emotionally, and financially. Even if a rider is wearing a safety helmet (required under Missouri law), serious and life threatening injuries can result from an accident. Riders can face severe road rash, broken bones, head, neck, and back pain, and more. Emotionally, motorcycle accidents can be traumatizing. Once your bike is repaired, many are unnerved at the thought of being in an accident again. Financially, there will be medical costs, a loss of salary, and the expenses of repairing your bike.

Negligent drivers are often guilty of not following Missouri’s state laws and are accountable for most motorcycle accidents. Drivers may neglect to look before switching lanes or turning, be distracted on their phones, or exceed the speed limit. Ultimately, they are at fault for your injuries and should atone you for your losses sustained.
