Motorcycle Accident Attorneys in Louisville
Serving Injured Riders Throughout Kentucky
Negligent and distracted drivers are everywhere. They present a real danger to everyone on the road, specifically to motorcyclists. A motorcycle is much smaller than any car or truck, and it can be more difficult to spot as a result. A rider is also virtually unprotected in the event of a collision – even if he or she is wearing a helmet and other protective gear. There is no steel frame nor front and side airbags to protect his or her body from impact. In fact, motorcyclists are 28 times more likely to suffer fatal injury in traffic collisions than occupants of other vehicles, according to 2016 traffic accident statistics presented by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

What Causes Motorcycle Accidents?
Like any crash, a motorcycle accident may have one or more of various causes. It is important to determine exactly what contributed to the collision in order to identify fault, and therefore who should be responsible for paying for your medical treatment, lost earnings, and more. We accomplish this by using accident reconstruction specialists, investigators, and other experts to investigate and prepare a clear case of your accident’s cause.
The following are examples of behavior that can cause motorcycle accidents:
- Texting while driving
- Drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs
- Speeding or driving too fast for current road/weather conditions
- Turning right into a motorcyclist’s path
- Failure to yield to a motorcyclist
- Following too closely
- Defective motorcycle or auto parts
- Negligently designed or maintained roadways
