On Saturday, May 26, at approximately 3 pm Chester and Joyce Eastland of Rogersville were reportedly injured in an accident involving their 2001 Harley Davidson motorcycle. The accident occurred on MO 76 3 miles east of Ava, and it began when a vehicle operated by Danny Cutbirth, 56, of Ava, failed to stop at a stop sign before striking the cyclists. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol crash report, both Easlands suffered moderate injuries and had to be transported to Mercy Hospital in Springfield for further observation and treatment. Mr. Cutbirth was unharmed in the incident.
A traffic accident, particularly one involving a motorcycle, can be an exceptionally traumatic event in a person’s life. We at the law offices of Kevin J. Roach wish the Eastland family a quick and thorough recovery.
Missouri offers a broad, robust, and thorough system of personal injury law meant to protect parties who are injured through the negligent acts of another party. Here, Mr. Cutbirth is likely at fault, and the Eastlands will be entitled to payment for any lost wages, pain and suffering, and any medical bills incurred as a result of the accident that are not also a result of their own negligence.
