As the largest city in Kentucky and home to five four-year universities, Louisville has a significant amount of pedestrian and bicycle traffic. Unfortunately, this also means the Louisville area also sees its fair share of collisions between passenger vehicles and those on bike or foot.
The experienced team at the Karl Truman Law Office understands the devastating impacts of the severe injuries that often result from pedestrian or bicycle accident. Our lawyers have extensive experience helping injury victims and their families from the Louisville, Kentucky, and Jeffersonville, Indiana, areas pursue the financial peace of mind they need to cope with medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Because bicyclists and pedestrians lack the obvious protections of those in passenger vehicles, motor vehicle accidents involving pedestrians or riders result in a higher rate of catastrophic injuries and death than collisions between just passenger vehicles. Common severe injuries in pedestrian and bicycle accidents include:
- Fractured bones
- Organ damage
- Loss-of-limb/amputation injuries
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
As with motorcycle accidents, collisions in which pedestrians or bicyclists are injured are often caused by passenger vehicle drivers who fail to see those on foot or bike.
