Louisville Motorcycle Accident Lawyer warns motorcycle accident victims in Kentucky – Watch out for short statute of limitations!

[back to index]

If you are like most motorcycle accident victims in Kentucky, you did not purchase Kentucky no-fault coverage for your motorcycle. Kentucky law requires operators of cars and trucks to purchase no-fault coverage in order to drive on Kentucky roadways, but not motorcycles. As a Louisville motorcycle accident lawyer, I know that if you did not purchase no-fault coverage on your motorcycle and you are involved in an accident, you only have one year from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit or lose your claim forever. By contrast, if you were operating an uninsured car or truck at the time of the accident, you would have 2 years to file a lawsuit. Again, if you had purchased no-fault coverage on your motorcycle, you would have two (2) years from the date of your last no-fault payment to file your lawsuit. This longer statute of limitations gives you the time you need to recover from your injuries so that I, as your Louisville motorcycle accident lawyer, can present the strongest case possible to the at fault insurance company. Additionally, it gives you the time needed to try and resolve your case with the insurance company without having to file a lawsuit.

It is prudent to purchase Kentucky no-fault coverage for your motorcycle if for no other reason than to extend the statute of limitations. Of course, the $10,000.00 of no-fault insurance will come in handy to help pay for your medical expenses. If you do not purchase no-fault insurance, watch out for the one-year statute of limitations!
