Kentucky motorcycle accidents: collision with truck kills rider

Adhering to traffic laws, following the speed limit, wearing safety restraints and not driving distracted are all ways Kentucky residents aim to avoid collisions. In addition, motorcyclists are well aware that wearing helmets can further their safety while riding a bike. It is well known when motorcycle accidents occur involving a bike and a larger vehicle, the motorcycle rider is at greater risk for serious injuries. Recently, one young motorcyclist lost his life following an accident despite wearing safety gear.

The 20-year-old man was traveling west on the road when the accident occurred. Reportedly, a 62-year-old male driver made a left turn on the same road the motorcyclist was traveling. The older man was driving a pickup truck, and initial investigation reports indicate he may be at fault.

Records state that the motorcyclist was wearing his helmet at the time of the accident. The pending investigation has not revealed if the pickup driver was wearing his seat belt as required by law. Sadly, the motorcyclist's injuries were so severe that he did not survive to be transported to a nearby medical facility. Reportedly, the pickup driver did not suffer any injuries.

It is unfortunate when motorcycle accidents occur. Victims may require indefinite expensive medical treatment, and families of deceased victims must manage unexpected funeral expenses as they grieve their loved one's death. Personal injury attorneys in Kentucky can advise victims and families of deceased victims of their rights to seek compensation in civil court against presumed negligent parties. Although compensation will not change the outcome, it may help to relieve any financial stress that results.
