We are getting into the time of year when most motorcyclists are ready to get out on the roads regularly. In Kentucky, motorcycles are a common sight. However, in reality, sometimes other drivers simply are not aware of motorcycles on the roads. Yes, it is true that motorcycles present a smaller profile and may be harder to see at times, but all drivers must be aware of their surroundings on the roads. If they are not, and they cause a motorcycle accident, the injured motorcyclist may have a valid personal injury claim.
Motor vehicle accidents of all kinds are common enough in Kentucky. Most people have seen the aftermath of a crash on the side of the road. Fortunately, most vehicle collisions are so-called “fender benders.” But, when a motorcycle is involved, that isn’t usually the case. When a vehicle collides with a motorcycle, it is usually the motorcyclist who suffers the worst of it.
Personal injury options
Just like in any other motor vehicle accident, injured motorcyclists may be able to pursue a personal injury claim if the collision was caused by another party’s negligence or recklessness. Motorcyclists often suffer severe injuries in these types of collisions – from broken bones to head and spine injuries, and everything in between.
At our law firm, we work with injured victims who want to hold negligent drivers accountable. Most victims desperately need the financial compensation that might be the end result of a personal injury lawsuit.
Such funds could help pay medical expenses and even make up for lost wages due to time missed from work. For more information about how our law firm attempts to help injured motorcyclists in Kentucky, please visit the personal injury overview section of our law firm’s website.
