Motorcyclists enjoy the rush of adrenaline they get from riding a motorcycle on the gorgeous open roads of Kentucky. The thrill of driving a motorcycle for any biker is undeniable. Unfortunately, however, the potential dangers of riding a motorcycle can result in catastrophic injuries or death.

Economic damages include expenses like medical bills for surgery, rehabilitation, or other medical treatment, lost wages, loss of future income, and other costs. Non-economic damages include pain and suffering, mental anguish, emotional distress, inconvenience, physical impairment, and other struggles you incur but cannot put a price tag on.
