Most motorcyclists are well aware of the disadvantage they have compared to larger vehicles. The Insurance Information Institute noted that “In 2019 [the most recent data available], motorcyclists were nearly 29 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a crash per vehicle miles traveled.” The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported a surge in motorcycle-related injuries and deaths in Missouri in 2021 compared to the previous year.
Even if you’re being careful, an accident can happen without warning. One minute you are riding around the city, enjoying the feeling of freedom that only riding a motorcycle can bring, and then suddenly, you are involved in a motor vehicle accident!
If you are in an accident you should take some steps immediately. First of all, never leave the scene of an accident!. That is a serious offense in both Kansas and Missouri. Check for injuries in yourself and others, and call 9-1-1. Exchange insurance information with the other driver and take pictures at the scene. Do not admit fault! When the police arrive, note the officers’ names and badge numbers. Lastly, begin the claims process with your insurance company.
