Aggressive Louisville Motorcycle Injury Attorneys
Riding a motorcycle can be pure bliss. Nothing livens up a commute like making the trip on two wheels. We know the dangers when we get on the bike, but I think it’s safe to say that most of the time we’re thinking, “Not me… not today.”
For as many as 5,000 motorcyclists per year, the ride ends in an accident-related fatality. Over 100 riders died in Kentucky alone in 2006. We could rattle off statistics all day about the prevalence of injury and death among motorcyclists, but that’s not why you’re here.
Proving Driver Liability
As riders, we all know that it’s not our own inexperience or lack of handling skills to be wary of, but rather, it’s the driver cruising distractedly in the next lane. Sure, commonly shared perception can be wrong, but in this case, the statistics support the idea that erring drivers are responsible for a large portion of motorcycle accidents.
According to the Hurt Report, only 25 percent of motorcycle accidents are of a single-vehicle nature. Seventy-five percent involve a collision between the motorcyclist and another vehicle. Out of these collisions, two out of three were the result of the driver violating the motorcyclist’s right-of-way.
In other words, around 50 percent of all motorcycle accidents are the driver’s fault. But how do you prove that in court? Traffic law can be surprisingly tricky, and odds are, the driver who ran into you has an insurance provider that is VERY committed to placing the blame on you. You’ll want the help of an experienced motorcycle injury team, devoted specifically to your unique case.
