Louisville Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Experience Personal Injury Lawyer Serving Kentucky
Helping Motorcycle Wreck Victims Throughout Louisville
While people may be looking out for other cars, they are not necessarily looking out for motorcycles. An often harsh reality is that motorcycles can be difficult to see; an excellent motorcyclist may still be struck by an inattentive driver. Unfortunately, most motorcycle accidents result in severe, long-lasting injuries. If you are hit by a driver and injured through no fault of your own, you may have a personal injury case and be entitled to fair and just compensation.
Motorcycle accidents are not just like car accidents. Kentucky law mandates “no-fault” insurance on cars, but this is not so for motorcycles. As such, there is typically no “PIP” or “basic reparation benefits” available for injured motorcyclists. The only way a motorcyclist is entitled to no-fault benefits is if they specifically purchased PIP insurance for their motorcycle. Most motorcyclists do not purchase such coverage because it can be expensive.
