Missouri Bicycle And Scooter Accidents
Missouri bicycle safety laws do not require cyclists to wear helmets. However, many cities have their own laws that enforce bicyclists to wear helmets, and electric scooter companies, such as Lime and Bird, require renters to agree to wear a helmet while operating an electric scooter. That being said, due to the small size of bicycles and scooters and the lack of protection, if they are hit by a car or truck, this can result in severe or fatal injuries to the rider.
Common Injuries Caused In Bike And Scooter Accidents
Most bicycle and scooter accidents are caused by the negligence of car and truck drivers. Speeding, driving under the influence, distracted driving and other negligent driving acts can cause catastrophic injuries such as:
- Internal bleeding
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Sprains, strains and fractures
- Neck and chest injuries
Injuries caused in a bicycle or scooter accident involving a motor vehicle can have life-altering consequences. The victim may not be able to take care of themselves without the help of others, may no longer be able to perform the duties of their job, or experience countless other physical, emotional and financial losses. If you or someone you love has been injured in a bicycle or scooter accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you have the right to seek compensation.
