May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. Unfortunately, in spite of the country’s emphasis on the importance of watching for motorcyclists on the road, catastrophic injuries and fatalities still happen on a very regular basis.
At the Kentucky law firm of T.J. Smith, Attorney at Law, we understand the causes of motorcycle accidents. We also know how to fight for maximum compensation for the victims and their families. You can count on T.J. and our legal team to pursue the full amount you deserve under the law.
T.J. was named one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in the United States by the American Trial Lawyers Association. He personally handles every case, and will never pass you off to a case manager, associate or any other lesser qualified individual.
Distracted Driving Is The Number One Cause
People are typically looking out for other cars when they drive. They are not necessarily watching for motorcycles, which are much smaller and harder to see. When a car driver is distracted while driving, motorcycle riders can easily become accident victims.
You can count on T.J. to dig deep into the facts of the case and uncover the real causes of the wreck. Even if it looks like the motorcycle rider is at fault that may not actually be true. T.J. has an in-depth knowledge of the factors influencing motorcycle accidents. In many cases, he can reconstruct the wreck and show the jury why the car driver is responsible.
In one recent case, for instance, T.J. was able to show that our client was a very experienced motorcyclist, not a rookie rider. The bike’s skid marks were perfectly straight, and the patterns on the road and the damage proved that the rider was braking and in complete control of the bike until impact.
