Motorcycle Accidents: What You Need To Know
While riding a motorcycle is a fun pastime for many, unfortunately, accidents can happen. Because of the lack of protection, the injuries can quickly become serious. Regardless of the severity of your injury, you require an attorney who has the experience you need when seeking damages. Hicks & Funfsinn, PLLC, has 20 years of combined experience helping victims and their families.
Understanding Helmet Laws
In Kentucky, bikers must wear a helmet if they have only a permit, have had their license less than one year or are under 21 years old. Any driver or passenger aged 21 or over is not legally required to wear a helmet. This can have an impact on your case. If you meet the criteria that requires a helmet and you weren’t wearing one, the other driver can argue that point and attempt to reduce your compensation.
Even if you were wearing a helmet, you need an experienced attorney who not only can prove your level of damages and that the other party was at fault, but also can minimize your fault in the accident. This can result in a higher payment for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The injuries sustained in the cases can have lifelong effects. You deserve to be sufficiently rewarded.
