Simply put, motorcyclists are more vulnerable to traffic accidents, and those accidents are significantly more likely to involve severe injuries. Whether due to distraction, recklessness, or failure to recognize or yield right of way to cyclists, drivers of other types of vehicles often endanger or cause motorcyclists to crash.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury or death due to a motorcycle accident, you need an attorney who knows the laws and who will be a strong, aggressive advocate for you, representing your rights to the road, and securing the maximum possible compensation for your pain and suffering. Winton & Hiestand Law Group, PLLC is that group.
Injured parties may be able to receive compensation for past, present, and future medical bills, lost wages from time off work, diminished capacity to earn, and past and future pain and suffering.
In some instances, Kentucky law ALSO allows juries to award punitive damages.
Punitive damages are meant to punish behavior that is intentional and/or grossly negligent to dissuade others from the same behavior.
