Motorcycle Accidents

Experienced Kentucky Motorcycle Accident Law Firm

Kentucky, like most states, has seen an increase in the use of motorcycles on its roadways. The depressed economy makes this more affordable means of transportation appealing to a growing number of commuters. However, along with the increase in use comes an increase in the number of dangerous and fatal injuries from motorcycle accidents. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, or someone you love is the victim of wrongful death following a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to damages. You need the experienced motorcycle accident personal injury attorneys at Miniard Law Office to protect your rights. We have represented motorcycle accident clients throughout Kentucky and across the country.

Vulnerable Motorcyclists

According to the Department of Transportation, motorcyclists are 35 times more likely to be injured fatally in a roadway collision. Vehicles colliding with motorcycle riders can easily cause severe and even deadly injuries to the under protected cyclists. Kentucky law only requires cyclists under the age of 18 and instructional permit holders to wear helmets when driving a motorcycle. Unshielded cycle riders are already vulnerable in collisions with cars and trucks. Besides the obvious weight difference between motorcycles and cars and trucks in collisions, riding without a helmet causes even more critical and catastrophic injuries, since the bike rider’s head is completely exposed in crashes.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

There are numerous causes of motorcycle accidents, including:

  • Drinking or drugging while driving
  • Roadway hazards and impediments
  • Speeding
  • Heavy traffic conditions
  • Failure to obey traffic signs
  • Driving on the wrong side of the road
  • Poor weather conditions
  • Road rage
  • Inexperienced driver and limited driver training
