Missouri motorcycle accidents: Teen injured in intersection

Driving a vehicle is innately dangerous. Drivers in Missouri, or any other state, never know when another driver on the road is going to make a bad judgment call that will ultimately result in a motor vehicle collision. Furthermore, riding a motorcycle is considerably more dangerous, because injuries resulting from motorcycle accidents are often more severe. A recent accident involving a motorcycle and a car sent a young man to the hospital.

The two-vehicle accident occurred at an intersection in Joplin on a recent Tuesday around 4:00 p.m. A 16-year-old male was riding his motorcycle westbound. At that time, a 20-year-old woman was driving her vehicle toward the east when she allegedly attempted to make a left turn.

According to the police report, the woman turned in front of the teen on the motorcycle, causing the collision. The 16-year-old motorcyclist was taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for his injuries. No information has been released on his condition, and no information is available regarding the status of the driver of the car.

Victims of motorcycle accidents have the right to pursue personal injury lawsuits in Missouri civil court if the other drivers in the accidents are believed to have been negligent. When facing substantial medical bills, loss of income, and pain and suffering due to injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident, seeking the assistance of an experienced lawyer may be beneficial. A successful claim may result in compensation to help pay for the costs resulting from an accident.
