Murray Kentucky Motorcycle Accident and Injury Attorney
A motorcycle accident can be caused by any number of factors. Many other drivers on the road simply don’t see the motorcycle before they change lanes or pull out into traffic. Unfortunately, motorcyclists may also face more obstacles in seeking the compensation they deserve. There is actually a fairly common but mistaken belief that motorcyclists are reckless and as a result the motorcyclist is often blamed for the accident by the insurance company which should be liable for the injuries to a motorcyclist and/or their passenger.
Whatever the cause of the motorcycle accident, you need an experienced motorcycle accident and injury lawyer to ensure the best possible outcome in your case. The Roberts Law Office has more than 30 years of experience in personal injury and motor vehicle accidents. We work to protect our clients, counter these false and negative perceptions and establish the true facts of the case. Jeff Roberts will hold the responsible parties financially accountable for your injuries as a motorcyclist or a passenger.
Common Causes of a Motorcycle Accident and Injury in Western Kentucky
We thoroughly investigate every case and seek out the actual cause of the accident which resulted in injuries to our client. Motorcycle accidents in Western Kentucky are often caused by:
- Speeding or unsafe driving by other motorists
- Pulling out of a parking lot or side street without seeing the motorcycle
- Lane changing errors
- Distracted driving such as eating, texting or talking on the phone
Motorcyclists have far less protection than the driver of a car or truck and the likelihood of serious injury is higher. Motorcycle accidents involve a wrongful death or serious injuries including:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Neck and spine injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Skin damage
- Permanent disability
We will fight to recover damages and help you get the compensation you deserve.

If you are involved in a motorcycle accident that is someone else’s fault, then you may be entitled to reimbursement of your lost wages and medical bills. You also may be entitled to additional damages, including pain and suffering and impaired capacity to earn. If the accident was someone else’s fault, then you may be entitled to have your motorcycle repaired or replaced. Even if the at-fault party does not have insurance, you may be able to pursue a claim against your own insurance company for your damages.
Insurance companies have trained adjusters and experienced lawyers helping them to defend your claim. Insurance companies generally begin preparing the defense of claims within hours after the wreck occurs. Therefore, it is vitally important for you to act quickly after being involved in a collision.

Therefore, you need an attorney who is familiar with these claims and is also familiar with how insurance companies work to help you navigate through the process successfully.
