Paducah Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Standing Up For Kentucky Bikers

Motorcyclists can be at the mercy of other drivers. When a distracted minivan pulls in front of a bike, the minivan is usually fine. It’s the bike (and its rider) that pays the price.

At Edwards & Kautz Law Firm, we understand the frustration bikers feel and fight hard to get riders the compensation they deserve after an accident.

Many People Don’t Look For Motorcycles

According to the National Transportation Safety Board, people are 27 times more likely to get in an accident on a motorcycle than in another type of vehicle. One reason for that discrepancy is that motorcycles are hard to see. They are smaller and harder to spot when stopped at an intersection.

They can also be hidden behind a van or large truck and seem to appear from nowhere when they change lanes. During rainstorms, they are even harder to see. A car or truck driver who hits a motorcyclist may be responsible even if they did not see the cyclist.

How Our Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Can Help You

Medical bills pile up quickly after a motorcycle accident, and lost wages can leave you feeling financially insecure. Insurance companies often try to settle claims quickly and for less than you deserve, adding another layer of stress to your already challenging situation. With the damages on the line and the liability disputes that arise in a typical motorcycle accident case, you are better off hiring an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer.

We believe you shouldn’t settle for anything less than what you deserve after suffering motorcycle accident injuries. Some of the key legal aspects of your motorcycle accident claim that our dedicated motorcycle accident lawyers can assist with include:

  • Determining fault: We can investigate the accident thoroughly to identify the at-fault party and build a robust case on your behalf.
  • Proving negligence: We will help gather evidence to demonstrate that the other party’s negligence caused your accident and resulting injuries.
  • Accident reconstruction: In some cases, we may even utilize accident reconstruction experts to recreate the events of the crash and strengthen your claim.
  • Negotiating with insurance companies: Since insurance companies are notorious for offering lowball settlements, we’ll negotiate on your behalf to help ensure you receive the maximum compensation you deserve.
  • Building a strong case: If a fair settlement cannot be reached, we’ll carefully build a compelling case to present in court, maximizing your chances of a successful outcome.
  • Courtroom representation: If your case goes to court, our reputable motorcycle accident lawyers can provide strong and effective representation to secure a favorable outcome.

The Dangers Of Bad Road Conditions

Bad roads, like potholes, oil slicks or ruts, that cause minor problems for car drivers can be deadly for cyclists. Slides can send the biker spinning into oncoming traffic or nearby trees and buildings.

Hazards on the road, such as ongoing construction, sharp turns and fresh pavement or loose stone should be marked by the highway department. If they are not clearly marked (or not marked at all), an accident may be the fault of the highway department.
