Motorcycle accidents often do not end well for the motorcyclist. Motorcycle accidents often lead to death or serious injuries such as broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, damaged or severed spinal cords, facial disfigurement, or torn shoulder or knee ligaments. If you or your loved one were injured in a motorcycle accident that was the fault of another driver, depending on the circumstances of your case, you might be entitled to damages, including lost wages, past and future medical bills, past and future pain and suffering, and loss of impairment to earning income in the future.
Also, for many reasons, it’s wise to contact a motorcycle accident injury lawyer as soon as possible after the accident as that gives you the best chance to maximize the compensation you receive. You must also keep in mind that you must file a lawsuit for your motorcycle injury case within the statute of limitations. If you fail to do so, your claim is barred, and you will not be entitled to any compensation. In Kentucky, the statute of limitations for motorcycle accident injury cases is at least two years from the date of the accident.
