If you or a family member has been injured in an automobile or motorcycle accident, it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible. This will permit your lawyer to better protect your rights and preserve evidence. It may be necessary to conduct a prompt investigation to determine if fatigue or a tired driver caused the collision, or if it was possibly caused by other distractions such as cell phone use, speed, alcohol, drugs, or texting.
Recovery for personal injuries sustained in an automobile or motorcycle accident is governed by the Kentucky Motor Vehicle Reparations Act (MVRA), KRS 304.39-010, et seq. In order to make the most of your case, it is important that your lawyer is very familiar with the MVRA. The law also treats automobiles and motorcycles differently. The attorneys at Erdmann & Stumbo, PLLC, have extensive experience handling serious automobile and motorcycle accidents—experience that can make a difference when it comes to your claim.
Also, it is important to note that while liability insurance adjustors sometimes attempt to make themselves seem like they are working for the benefit of an injured party (a person injured by their insured), they are not working for you. Our attorneys deal with insurance adjustors and attorneys every day, and we have the knowledge to effectively pursue your claim.
