Louisville, KY Motorcycle Hit and Run Lawyer

Victims of Motorcycle Hit and Run Collisions

Every serious accident is a painful, traumatizing experience. However, hit and run collisions are worse because the driver, who is often responsible for the crash, has evaded justice. There are many reasons drivers leave the scene of an accident, including trying to avoid criminal charges and not having insurance, but none of them are good. As motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries or death, it is imperative to hold negligent parties accountable for their actions. With the help of a Louisville, KY motorcycle hit and run lawyer, you can do just that.

Leaving the scene of an accident is now a Class D felony in Kentucky and is punishable by jail time and fines. According to State Police, there were 10,724 hit and run accidents in 2009, resulting in 16 fatalities and 1,308 injuries.

As they are smaller than passenger cars and offer less protection, motorcycles make riders more prone to severe injuries. Injuries possible in hit and run collisions include the following:

  • Back injuries
  • Brain damage
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Stress fractures
  • Whiplash
  • Neck injuries

If you or someone you love is the victim of a hit and run motorcycle crash, you should consider all of your legal options. Hit and run cases can be complicated. The other driver may not have insurance. In cases where the other driver is not located, you will likely deal with your insurance company.

You will also want to explore whether a civil case is possible. In many cases, damages covering medical expenses, pain and suffering and other costs are provided to victims.
