Navigating the Motorcycle Danger Zone at the Lake of the Ozarks

Serious motorcycle accident

While riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle near the intersection of Highway 54 and Key Largo Road in Osage Beach last Thursday, a twenty-year-old man was fatally injured in a collision with an Airstream recreational vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident by authorities.

Just three days later, Sunday, another motorcycle incident occurred on State Road TT near Three Oaks Drive in Sunrise Beach. Two riders were thrown from their bike, and both sustained injuries.

The above are just two examples of motorcycle accidents and their potential consequences. Due to a myriad of factors, such as the inattention of other drivers, motorcyclists are generally at higher risk for injury than are drivers of motor vehicles. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol Statistical Analysis Center, motorcycle-involved traffic accidents caused 2,051 injuries in 2013 alone.

The victims of such accidents are often in no way at fault for the damage done to their lives by these tragic events and may be entitled to compensation.

Motorcyclists and their passengers deserve the same protection under the law as any other person on the road.” –Duane Randle, Price & Randle
