Were you a motorcyclist or a passenger injured on a motorcycle when a car changed lanes or pulled out in front of you without looking? Unfortunately this happens in Louisville and throughout Kentucky far too often. Motorcyclists are at a significant disadvantage when they are struck by a car or truck resulting in an injury accident. If you are injured in a motorcycle crash due to another driver’s negligence the experienced injury attorneys at Hargadon, Lenihan & Herrington, PLLC can help.
These accidents happen so suddenly, and often at speed resulting in serious injuries to the motorcyclist and any passenger who may be riding with them. Head injuries including traumatic brain injury is quite common, as well as broken arms and legs and shoulder wounds. Road rash is almost always part of a motorcycle accident, but even a helmet and body armor can’t prevent the type of injuries that can permanently change your life.
It is important for our attorneys to work quickly in your case to secure witness testimony and other crucial evidence from the accident scene including video or photos. Police reports often place much of the blame on the motorcyclist when the facts simply don’t bear this out. The ability to prove our client did not contribute to the accident and was simply a victim of another driver’s negligence ensures they receive full and fair compensation for the injuries they’ve been forced to endure.
When a client is injured on a motorcycle when a car changed lanes or pulled out unexpectedly it is often necessary to take the case to trial to prove the facts in our case. We use accident reconstruction video and other tools to help the jury to understand what really happened.
