Bicycle accidents in Kentucky have been steadily rising in recent years, home to more than 800 fatalities every year. Additionally, thousands of bicycle accidents result in non-fatal injuries each year, with victims suffering injuries are often severe and life-changing. The Kentucky bicycle accident lawyers at Gary C. Johnson, P.S.C., know that these accident injuries and fatalities can be devastating for bicyclists and their family members.

Once you have enlisted our help for your bicycle accident claim in Kentucky, we will begin working on your case immediately. We will listen to your version of events and begin our investigation. Unfortunately, we know that even though bicyclists have the same rights on the road that motorists do, there is sometimes a bias against bicyclists and they are often blamed for their accidents. We will interview witnesses, review any available accident footage, and review the accident report. If we find that the accident report contains incorrect or incomplete information about the accident, we will request to have the report amended to more accurately reflect the accident details.
With over 800 fatalities per year, certain surviving family members may be entitled to recover financial compensation for the losses they sustained due to losing a loved one.

This is especially important if your loved one was a financial provider for your family. Wrongful death recovery can be complicated, but our experienced attorneys know how to effectively navigate wrongful death claims in order to maximize survivors’ compensation.
