Group of bikers hit by truck

People who ride motorcycles in Missouri know that they are part of a special community. Bikers all across the country share their passion for riding on two wheels and enjoying the sense of freedom that comes with doing so. These people also share each other’s pain when even one motorcyclist is injured or killed in an accident.

Motorcycle Safety Month highlights an important issue

Like many motorcyclists, you may ride at any time of the year. However, as we at the law offices of McShane & Brady, LLC, understand, spring means an increase of two-wheeled vehicles on the roads. You and other Missouri bikers face hazards whenever you ride, particularly when it comes to other drivers.

Tips that help motorcyclists avoid collisions

If you are like many avid riders in Missouri, there is nothing like the freedom of a motorcycle on the open road. Observing the rules of the road is imperative to staying safe and avoiding a collision with passenger vehicles. At McShane & Brady, LLC, we often represent clients injured in an accident between their motorcycle and a car or truck.

Attempt to evade authorities leads to fatal Mo. motorcycle crash

When motorists in Missouri see the flashing lights of an emergency vehicle, the best thing to do in the interest of everybody's safety, including that of the motorist, is to pull over to the side of the road. A motorcyclist in Springfield who allegedly attempted to evade authorities who tried to pull him over for speeding is now dead after a collision with a car. 

Serious crash near Arnold illustrates dangers for motorcyclists

Motorcyclists in Missouri and elsewhere have a saying: “It’s not if you crash, it’s when.” Motorcyclists understand that they face great risks when they ride, and most take these risks seriously. Unfortunately, the best precautions don’t always protect bikers from the negligent actions of other drivers. A recent motorcycle accident that occurred outside the Arnold city limits shows the unexpected, serious dangers that motorcyclists face whenever they are on the road.

What injuries do motorcyclists commonly face?

Missouri motorcyclists like you unfortunately take big risks every time you get on the road. The small size of your bike means that you usually don't stand up well against larger, covered vehicles. McShane & Brady, personal injury attorneys, aid those who have been injured in crashes with other vehicles.

Vehicle drivers put bikers at risk

The warm weather is back and for many people in Missouri that means so too is the time when they can happily hop on their motorcycles and enjoy riding along in the open air. To get this season started, May was actually National Motorcycle Safety Awareness month which seems to have been perfectly timed. This month is designed to make bikers more aware of how to ride safely but it is also designed to increase awareness of motorcycles on the road among drivers of other vehicles.

Being proactive about motorcycle safety can save your life

Each time you get on your motorcycle, you are anticipating the freedom and flexibility of riding your bike in the open air. With such incredible scenery in Missouri, your motorcycle can be an excellent distraction from everyday responsibilities and allow you a hobby to enjoy. However, your ability to create positive memories of riding your motorcycle is dependent on your effort to drive responsibly and take action to keep yourself safe. At Mcshane & Brady, we are familiar with the risks that motorcyclists face and are committed to helping those involved in accidents to work through legal repercussions.
