Unfortunately, insurance companies are tougher on motorcycle accidents than passenger vehicle collisions. In fact, some insurance companies often automatically assume that the motorcyclist was responsible for the accident. This is because, in some part, of the misconception that all motorcycle riders are dangerous and reckless.
For this reason, you should contact a personal injury attorney to help you file a Kentucky motorcycle accident claim with the responsible party’s insurance provider.
Negligent drivers are responsible for the majority of motorcycle accidents each year. Whether they fail to check their blind spot before changing lanes or turn directly into a motorcyclist, motorists who violate a motorcyclist’s right of way can cause serious injuries.
To win your motorcycle accident claim, you will need to submit proof that the driver’s actions or negligence was responsible for your collision.
To prove negligence, you should gather the:
- contact information for any witnesses;
- documentation of your medical diagnosis and treatments; and
- phone number of a lawyer who has experience with these types of cases.
By presenting your evidence to the insurance provider, you can increase your chances of a successful resolution, even if the insurer initially assumed the accident was your fault.
