Looking out for Your Family
When a motorcycle is involved in a collision with another vehicle, the result is often catastrophic injury or wrongful death. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration reported that motorcyclists are nearly 27 times more likely to be killed in accidents than people in passenger vehicles. Motorcycles provide no protection for their passengers. And in Kansas, where there is no helmet law, crashes can be even more dangerous.
At Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C., we represent the families of motorcyclists killed in crashes. If you lost a loved one due to another driver's negligence, we can hold him or her responsible for the accident and wrongful death. Our attorneys will work hard to obtain the compensation your family needs at this difficult time. Please call our office at 816-892-4675 to schedule an appointment. Your consultation is free.
Considerations of Motorcycle Accidents
Because Kansas does not have a motorcycle helmet law, many cyclists do not wear helmets when they ride, making a dangerous vehicle even more deadly. Many people come to Kansas from Missouri and other states to ride motorcycles because of the lack of a helmet law. Our lawyers can represent people from out of state who were in accidents in Kansas or Missouri.
Kansas is a no-fault state, which means that we can pursue a claim with the cyclist's insurance company. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, we may also be able to seek damages from the negligent party. Our lawyers will fight to obtain the compensation families need to cover funeral costs, lost income and other expenses.
