Millions ride motorcycles safely every year as this form of transportation continues to become more popular. However, because of the lack of protection combined with the small size of motorcycles, collisions with other vehicles frequently result in devastating consequences. Consider these facts:

  • The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that there were 4,595 fatal motorcycle accidents in 2009.
  • The majority of these were multiple-vehicle collisions.
  • In Kentucky, although motorcycle accidents accounted for fewer than one percent of all accidents, they made up seven percent of all fatal accidents with a total of 88 fatal crashes.

Your loved one may have been acting responsibly, but another negligent driver caused his or her death. Insurance companies are often quick to settle in these cases. However, you should consider all of your legal options, and contact a Louisville wrongful death attorney. The driver may be at fault because he or she was speeding, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, disobeying traffic laws or ignoring poor weather conditions.

Additionally, the motorcycle manufacturer could be at fault if there was a mechanical issue that caused the accident. An issue like this could be any of the following:

  • Defective brakes
  • Accelerator problems
  • Broken or cracked wheels
  • Defective seats
  • Malfunctioning exhaust system

Accident reconstruction is a complex business, particularly when a motorcycle is involved. A thorough investigation of the specifics of your case can reveal who was at fault. If another party is found negligent, you may be entitled to a variety of compensation for your financial and emotional losses.

When someone is suddenly taken away, you are bound to have questions. Do not go it alone. Instead, speak with a Louisville motorcycle accident attorney at Thomas Law Offices. He has the experience and deep knowledge of law necessary to tackle the most complex Kentucky motorcycle accident cases. When you call today for a free consultation, we can start working with you to ensure that justice is served.
