Why pay the price for someone else's negligence?

If you are a motorcyclist in Kentucky, the chances are that you are already very aware of the dangers of the road. Other drivers may struggle to spot you, or simply not be paying enough attention. Perhaps you have already had a few close calls. As a motorcyclist it is especially vital that you remain alert at all times on the road. A slight clip from another vehicle can have devastating consequences.

As motorcyclists have far less protection than the occupants of other vehicles, they are especially susceptible to life-threatening injuries. If you are ejected from your bike, or crushed by another vehicle, you could suffer broken bones, organ damage or even brain damage. Wearing appropriate safety equipment such as a helmet can make a big difference. However, this does not mean you are safe from the effects of a crash.

If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, it is possible that you may want to seek compensation from those responsible. The financial burden of a crash can be extensive, so it is extremely helpful to receive some remuneration for you injuries and the damage to your bike. Filing a claim against the driver that caused your injuries may also discourage them from making the same mistake in the future.
