The issue of fault in a Kentucky motorcycle accident can be a complex legal issue. By now, many Kentucky motorcyclists have had the chance to get out on the road for the first time this year. Riding a motorcycle can be a great time, but, unfortunately, motorcyclists need to be aware of the fact that any motorcycle accident which might occur will present significant challenges, from medical issues to legal issues.
If a motorcyclist is injured in an accident that was caused by a negligent driver, the injured motorcyclist and their passenger (if any) should pursue financial compensation by contacting HLH and filing a personal injury lawsuit. Successful personal injury claims and lawsuits must prove that it was, in fact, the other driver who caused the accident. However, determining the actual source of fault for the accident can be complicated.
The issue of fault in a Kentucky motorcycle accident is often clouded by false assumption. Historically, many juries begin with the perception that most motorcycle riders are a bit wild and reckless. It is not uncommon for them to assign the behavior of the few who consistently break the law to the vast Kentucky motorcycle riding community. This is why it is so important to work with the attorneys at Hargadon Lenihan and Herrington, PLLC.
It is important to begin an immediate investigation to preserve all evidence from the scene as well as the testimony of witnesses while it is fresh in their minds.
In many cases, eyewitness accounts of what actions the drivers who were involved in the accident took immediately before the accident happened can be valuable evidence in determining fault. In other cases, the law enforcement accident investigation of the incident can be crucial. However, each motorcycle accident is different, so determining fault for any given accident will be a unique challenge for Kentucky residents.
