Paducah Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Seeking Full Recoveries for Clients
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the number of motorcyclists killed in crashes has decreased over the years by approximately 5%, dropping to 4,985 in 2018. However, it’s still important to know that motorcyclists are more likely to suffer from catastrophic injuries than those operating passenger cars. Motorcyclists have limited protection, such as seat belts, air bags, and outer coverings, which means riders can easily be thrown from their bikes upon impact. If you or a loved one has been injured, contact our Paducah motorcycle accident attorneys for a free consultation immediately. Katz Law has been helping clients heal since 1998 and has successfully represented catastrophically injured motorcyclists.
Motorcycle defects: Drivers aren’t the only individuals who can be held liable for injuries in a motorcycle accident. Manufacturers may be at fault if the crash occurred due to a poorly designed or manufactured motorcycle part, such as defective brakes or tires.
What is a Catastrophic Injury?
It’s common knowledge that many motorcycle accidents cause catastrophic injuries for riders. A catastrophic injury is one that is considered more serious and to have a lasting impact on the way a victim lives their life – many of these injuries prevent people from going back to work and can impair their physical and mental abilities for the rest of their lives.
These injuries can include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck injuries
- Head injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
Driving a car and riding a motorcycle use different skills and knowledge. Motorcyclists require certain physical abilities to navigate roads and obstacles safely that most car drivers don’t have to think about. If you’re a new motorcyclist, you should spend time practicing until you become confident to ride in heavy traffic.
