MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS IN KENTUCKY
Each year, around 1400 motorcycle classes take place on local roads across the state of Kentucky. These incidents leave nearly 1000 people with injuries every year. When people are involved in motorcycle accidents, the chances of suffering severe injuries are greatly increased. Quite often, writers have little more than helmets to protect them during crashes. As a result, we see many people suffer from traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and other life-altering injuries that require emergency medical care.
Given the nature of these vehicles, it is incredibly common for motorcyclists to be ejected during collisions. This greatly increases the severity of injuries that victims are left with. In many cases, people suffer severe injuries in motorcycle accidents due to the negligence of other drivers. We see many people suffer injuries as a result of drivers who are speeding, change lanes without looking, and failing to yield the right-of-way to others.
