Lexington Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Goeing Goeing & McQuinn PLLC: Your Journey to Justice Starts Here
Serious injury may be the result of any motor vehicle accident, but no other vehicle poses the high risk of severe injury or wrongful death posed by motorcycles. Motorcycles offer no protection, limited safety features, less stability, and an extremely small margin for error when reacting to potentially hazardous road conditions or the negligence of other drivers. Motorcyclists are exposed to extremely high risks of debilitating and life-altering injuries. Even the most competent, experienced, and skilled motorcyclist may be vulnerable to unsafe and dangerous driving practices by other motorists on the roadways of Kentucky.
Our dedicated and experienced motorcycle accident attorneys at Goeing Goeing & McQuinn PLLC have successfully represented many motorcycle accident victims. Our team has a thorough understanding of the unique risks and special issues that are often determinative factors in the deposition of Kentucky motorcycle accident cases. By working alongside motorcycle accident experts, our Kentucky motorcycle accident attorneys have the ability to formulate convincing, effective, and thorough settlement and trial strategies and to develop clear and convincing courtroom presentations. Although our peers, insurance companies, and judges in Kentucky know us from our growing reputation for obtaining enviable results in favor of our clients, we believe that our integrity, compassion, and dedication to the best interest of our clients is what distinguishes us from other law firms.

Common Motorcycle Accident Causes
Negligence in the context of a motorcycle accident is the failure of a party, such as another driver, motorcycle manufacturer, or public entity that constructs or maintains a roadway to exercise reasonable care to avoid foreseeable injury to a rider. When the driver of the other vehicle violates a traffic safety law or a motorcycle collision is caused by a defect in the bike, the law of strict liability (liability without fault) may even apply.
Examples of the types of conduct that can cause a motorcycle accident include the following:
- Drivers intoxicated by drugs and/or alcohol
- Drivers failing to turn their heads to observe blind spots when changing lanes
- Distracted drivers who use electronic devices, eat in their car, or otherwise fail to devote their complete attention to the road
- Drivers who disregard traffic safety laws, such as right of way
- Drivers who fail to observe dangerous or adverse weather conditions, such as wet roadways or limited visibility
- Drivers who suddenly change lanes and cut off motorcyclists
- Roadways or highways not safely designed by public municipalities or that have defects from improper maintenance, such as pot holes or unmarked road hazards
- Defective motorcycles
Although many of these listed factors may be commonly found in other types of motor vehicle accidents, they are especially dangerous to motorcyclists because of their increased exposure to the risk of being involved in an accident and greater exposure to serious injury.
