How Our Kansas City Law Firm Develops Strategies For Recovering Damages

At Fowler Pickert Eisenmenger Norfleet, we’ve fought for economic and non-economic damages in all types of accident cases. While attaining compensation for a hit-and-run motorcycle accident can be challenging, it’s not impossible—there are avenues available both if the driver is found and if they remain unidentified.

If the driver is found, you may file a claim against their insurance policy for an injury and property damage settlement. This typically involves providing evidence of the accident and documenting your injuries and damages. 

However, if the motorist remains unidentified, you may still have options for recovering damages. Your own insurance policy, such as uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, may help compensate you for medical expenses, lost wages, and other losses resulting from the accident.

You may also pursue legal action against the unknown driver if they’re later identified. Working with our Kansas City legal team, you’ll gain a better understanding of the statute of limitations in these cases. This is the timeline you have to file a claim: generally five years in Missouri and two years in Kansas. If you immediately think this seems like a long time, it’s really not—the clock starts ticking from the point you realize you suffered injuries, and it can take weeks or even months to investigate the circumstances of your crash to obtain and prepare evidence for litigation.  

Why Pursue Legal Action After a Motorcycle Crash

Hit-and-run accidents represent a blatant disregard for the law and the safety of other people on the road. By pursuing legal action, you send a clear message that such behavior won’t be tolerated, potentially deterring future hit-and-run incidents and promoting safer driving practices within the community.

A legal recovery can provide much-needed financial compensation to cover multiple losses from your motorcycle accident including, but not limited to:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage

These and other damages can be substantial and may have long-lasting effects on your physical, emotional, and financial well-being. Seeking compensation through legal means might help alleviate the financial burden and provide the resources necessary for recovery and rehabilitation.

Working with a knowledgeable Kansas City motorcycle crash attorney from Fowler Pickert Eisenmenger Norfleet provides invaluable guidance, advocacy, and representation throughout the entire process, ensuring your rights are protected until you achieve a fair resolution to all the uncertainty.
