Motor vehicle accidents with motorcycles often lead to fatalities

Since motorcyclists are essentially defenseless when they are in a crash with a car, it is important for drivers of conventional vehicles in St. Louis and throughout Missouri to keep a close eye on their surroundings. Vigilance is a sound way to keep everyone safe, especially motorcyclists. Unfortunately, motor vehicle accidents can happen without warning and come about for a variety of reasons. When it involves a motorcyclist and a car, the aftermath can result in major injuries and death for the rider. Those who have been affected by a motorcycle crash should know that they have a right to seek compensation in a legal filing.

How to know when an insurance company acts in bad faith

You only file an insurance claim when something bad has happened. Whether it is a car accident, storm damage, or a broken leg, no one files an insurance claim because they are having a great day. To make matters worse, dealing with your insurance company is often difficult. When an insurance company crosses the line from difficult to dishonest, it is said they are acting in bad faith.

Study shows motor vehicle accidents involving pedestrians rising

In Missouri and throughout the nation, some of the most at-risk people for injuries and death are pedestrians. When there are motor vehicle accidents, the vulnerability of pedestrians is substantial. While most drivers keep a close eye on the road, the statistics indicate that pedestrian accidents have been rising significantly.

Fair Credit Reporting Act: what file information can I receive?

A common reason that Missouri consumers find themselves targeted for abuse from debt collectors, credit agencies and others is that they are unaware of their rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). With FCRA, people are accorded the right to have accurate, fair and private information about their finances used in an appropriate manner. Part of that is designed to stop abuse and protect people regarding information that is in their credit file. Knowing about how information in the file is shielded under FCRA, the consumer's rights is imperative and there is legal recourse if there are problems.
