Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Kentucky
Many factors can contribute to a motorcycle accident, but some of the most common causes seen by our injury lawyers include:
Failure to yield
Drivers often fail to look for motorcycles at intersections, especially while entering roadways or turning left.
Phone calls, smartphone applications, and passengers can distract drivers from seeing motorcyclists until its too late to prevent an accident.
Unsafe road conditions
Potholes, construction debris, and inadequate warning signage put bikers at risk of being thrown from their motorcycles while riding.
If you were hurt on a motorcycle and it wasn’t your fault, you have rights. Contact Sam Aguiar today for a free case review.
The Difference Between Car Accident & Motorcycle Accident Lawsuits
Even though motorcycle accidents involve collisions with cars, trucks, and other motor vehicles, these types of personal injury cases need to be handled differently than general automobile wrecks. Motorcyclists are openly exposed on the road and much more likely to suffer catastrophic injuries in the event of an accident, such as brain damage, spinal injuries, and broken bones. The serious nature of these injuries means longer hospital stays, expensive rehabilitation, and missed time at work.You need an experienced motorcycle accident attorney in Louisville who can maximize your claim with the insurance company and ensure all your expenses are covered.
Another factor that differentiates motorcycle accidents from car accidents is state motorway laws. For example, in Tennessee, all motorcyclists are requires to wear helmets, but in Kentucky, riders are only required by law to wear helmets until the age of 21, after which it is up to the rider's own discretion. Whether or not you were following the law at the time of your motorcycle accident can impact your case, especially if it goes to trial. Our team at Sam Aguiar Injury Lawyers has handled many motorcycle accidents cases and knows the ins and outs of state motorway laws from Kentucky to Tennessee and Indiana. You can trust our experience to recover the compensation you deserve!
