You Must Follow the Rules of the Road

Motorcyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as drivers of cars, trucks and other vehicles. However, many states have different laws regarding motorcycle safety equipment and procedures. Whether you are in Kansas, Missouri or anywhere else in the country, it is important to be aware of the rules and adhere to them.

At The Law Offices of Brian Timothy Meyers in Kansas City, we diligently pursue justice for the victims of accidents caused by negligence. We have been representing motorcycle accident victims and their families for over 30 years. If you or a loved one has been injured, call us toll free at 816.318.7174 for a free initial consultation with an attorney.

People who are irresponsible behind the wheel also tend to have no insurance or low policy limits. No matter what state you are riding in, it cannot be stressed enough how important it is to protect yourself by purchasing uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.

Helmet Laws

Wearing a helmet is the simplest thing any motorcycle rider can do to improve his or her safety on the road. Whether it is required or not, it is a good idea to be proactive in wearing a helmet. Kansas does not require motorcycle riders to wear helmets, while Missouri does require helmets to be worn.

In the event of an accident, not wearing a helmet could potentially hurt your case as the jury may be led to believe you did not take safety seriously. Anything you can do on your end to protect yourself will only help you in the long run.
