We addressed the most common causes of such accidents, including negligence on the part of the driver of the motor vehicle as well as equipment failure, faulty motorcycles, and defective roadways.

In Part II, we continue our list of questions frequently posed by clients who have been involved in a motorcycle accident.

What actions can the family members of a deceased motorcycle accident victim pursue?

Family members of an individual who has been killed in a motorcycle accident can seek recovery through a wrongful death suit, filed against the at fault driver. In Kansas, wrongful death suits can be filed by any heir to the decedent.

What types of compensation are available to those injured in a motorcycle accident in Kansas?

Your recovery will vary widely depending upon the facts of your case. Some common damages sought in a personal injury action include:

  • Emergency room bills
  • Hospital admission bills
  • Ambulance or helicopter transportation expenses
  • Physician bills
  • Physical therapy
  • Lost wages
  • Future lost wages
  • Future disability
  • Impaired earning ability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Impaired quality of life
  • Loss of consortium (brought in a separate action on behalf of the spouse of the injured victim)

The families of a deceased motorcycle accident victim often seek recovery for the following damages in a wrongful death action:

  • Conscious pain and suffering of the decedent
  • Loss wages
  • Loss of deceased earning capacity
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of consortium (brought by decedent’s spouse in separate action)
  • Child’s loss of parental consortium (brought in an independent action)
  • Loss of affection and companionship

What if I was partially at fault for the accident?

Kansas has adopted the doctrine of modified comparative negligence. Under this doctrine, an individual who is partially at fault or responsible for the motorcycle accident will not be barred from recovery, so long as their degree of fault is less than the other driver’s. In other words, the victim will be barred from recovery if his or her negligence is equal to or greater than the defendant’s. A motorcycle accident victim’s recovery will be reduced by the degree of his or her negligence that contributed to the accident.

Frequently Asked Questions About Motorcycle Accidents in Kansas: Part I

Motorcycles have become increasingly popular across Kansas in the past few years. Motorcycle enthusiasts love the thrill of the open road and freedom associated with riding a motorcycle. Unfortunately, with the increase in the number of motorcycles on Kansas roadways has come a rise in the incidence of accidents. Over 100,000 motorcycle accidents occur each year across the U.S. and about 4,500 individuals will die in these accidents. Motorcyclists often sustain more serious injuries in an accident due to their lack of structural protections. As such, it is important that motorcycle accident victims seek the assistance of an experienced motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible after the crash.

The following is a list of questions frequently posed by those who have been involved in a motorcycle crash.

What are the most common causes of motorcycle accidents in Kansas?

            Most motorcycle accidents involving a motorcycle and a motor vehicle can be attributed to driver error. If the driver of a motor vehicle fails to exercise reasonable caution and injuries a motorcyclist, the driver can be held accountable for the injuries and property damage sustained by the motorcyclist. Common causes of negligent operation of a motor vehicle that lead to motorcycle crashes include:

  • Left hand turns into motorcyclists—possibly the most common cause of motorcycle accidents, motor vehicle drivers often make a left hand turn without checking in their mirrors or looking over their shoulder. This can result in turning right into a motorcycle, causing serious injury to the motorcyclist who is left with no time to stop.
  • Unsafe lane changes—drivers are required to use turn signals and check blind spots before switching lanes, but many fail to take theses requisite precautions. Given the lesser visibility of motorcyclists, drivers often merge into the motorcycle.
  • Distracted driving—driving while talking on the phone, texting, eating, emailing, and the like will take a driver’s eyes and attention away from the road. While distracted driving is dangerous for all road users, motorcycle riders are particularly vulnerable because they are less visible.
  • Speeding—drivers who speed are less likely to be able to stop in time to avoid an accident with a motorcycle. They may also not see an approaching motorcyclist due to their reckless behavior.

Are all motorcycle accidents in Kansas caused by driver error?

            No. While many accidents are ultimately caused by driver error, this does not apply to all. A motorcycle collision in Kansas can also be attributed to: defective motorcycles, equipment failure, or defective roadways. When any of these conditions give rise to a crash, the property owner of the defective roadway or the manufacturer of the defective equipment or motorcycle may be held liable. Motorcyclists can bring an action under premises liability or products liable to obtain recovery for their injuries sustained.

Kansas Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Discuss Failure to Yield as Cause of a Recent Fatal Kansas Motorcycle Accident

Motorcycle accidents are one of the most prevalent causes of injuries and deaths among Kansas motorists. According to the Kansas Department of Transportation (KSDOT), in 2011 there were more than 1,100 motorcycle accidents across the state. Greater than 800 of these accidents caused injuries, and there were 45 reported deaths due to motorcycle accidents. Statistics in 2011 indicate a significant increase in motorcycle accidents in a ten-year period, with just over 700 motorcycle accidents having occurred in 2001.

One of the most common contributors to motorcycle accident injuries and deaths is failing to wear a helmet. Helmets are designed to reduce impact to the brain should an accident occur, which can be lifesaving for the individual involved in an accident. KSDOT estimates that of the 45 deaths that occurred in 2011 as a result of motorcycle accidents, only 12 individuals were wearing a helmet. Of the greater than 800 people injured, less than 50-percent of those injured was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.

Failing to use a helmet may be just one of multiple factors that resulted in fatal injuries to a Kansas motorcyclist recently. According to media reports, the motorcyclist, a 49-year-old man, was traveling near U.S. 24 on his Harley Davidson motorcycle when he was struck by a sport utility vehicle (SUV). The motorcyclist sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the accident scene. Investigators indicated that he was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.

While the motorcyclist’s injuries may have been lessened had he been wearing a helmet, the accident was caused by the SUV driver’s failure to yield to the oncoming motorcycle. According to investigators, the SUV driver, another 49-year-old man, was attempting a left turn when he struck the motorcycle. The motorcyclist reportedly attempted to avoid the turning SUV but was unsuccessful and struck the fender. The driver of the SUV was unharmed. It is unclear if charges are pending against him.

Tragic accidents like this one highlight the importance of safety for motorcyclists on Kansas roadways. Wearing a helmet is a great tool to help protect the fragile human body, but it cannot protect motorcyclists from the unexpected and often negligent actions of other drivers. For the family of the motorcyclist who was killed in this accident, there is likely no match for their grief and loss. In addition to funeral expenses, this victim’s family may suffer from a loss of valuable income, companionship, and support. Fortunately, some of their burden may be lifted if they are able to seek recovery against the driver believed to be responsible for their loss.

Kansas City Accident Attorney Reviews Lane Splitting and Motorcycle Laws in Kansas

Motorcyclists must follow the rules of the road just like any other driver of a motor vehicle. Due to their small size, anyone operating a motorcycle is at an increased risk of suffering serious injuries in the event of an accident. Some accidents may not be preventable, however, the severity of injuries may not be as extreme if all drivers pay attention to one another and take precautionary steps to respect each other on the road. One thing that many motorcyclists do that can lead to dangerous accidents is called lane splitting. This is where motorcyclists choose to drive between lanes in order to get through traffic. This is against Kansas traffic laws and can lead to severe injury or death both for motorcyclists and for other drivers on the road.

Why Is Lane Splitting So Dangerous?

Lane splitting is dangerous because drivers may not be able to spot motorcyclists as easily as larger vehicles. For example, if a driver of a car or SUV wishes to change lanes, that person may look in his or her car mirrors and the coast may look clear. However, the driver may not be able to see a motorcyclist speeding by in between lanes, and this may lead to the driver switching lanes and colliding with the motorcyclist. In such a case, most people may believe that even though the driver of the car hit the motorcycle, the motorcyclist should be at fault for the accident for breaking the law by lane splitting. This may be the case in some circumstances, but it is important to remember that drivers have a duty to avoid serious accidents to the best of their ability. As such, if a driver is inattentive and does not attempt to ensure the coast is clear, that driver could be just as much at fault as the motorcyclist if a collision occurs.

What Are Other Motorcycle Laws In Kansas?

Because motorcyclists have an increased risk of suffering serious harm if they are involved in an automobile accident, they should take all measures possible to reduce the severity of injuries they suffer. For example, wearing helmets and eye gear can significantly reduce the risk of causing head trauma that can result in permanent injuries. However, helmets are not required for all riders in Kansas, and eye protection is only required in some circumstances.

A summary of the key motorcycle laws in Kansas include, but are not limited to, the following:

• Daylight use of headlights is required;
• Eye protection is required unless the motorcycle is equipped with a windscreen;
• Lane splitting is not authorized;
• Only a left mirror is required;
• A separate passenger seat is required if riding with a passenger;
• A skill and knowledge test is required to waive motorcycle education;
• A safety helmet is required for motorcyclists under the age of 18; and
• Turn signals are required for all motorcycles

The above-listed laws are typical of most states. Many people believe that helmets should be required for all motorcyclists, but this simply has not been the standard for the United States. Thus, if you are a motorcyclist, you should consider just how serious injuries may be if you are involved in an accident with any other type of vehicle. Regardless of whether or not an accident is your fault, you could suffer permanent harm that could prevent you from ever riding a motorcycle again.

Kansas Motorcycle Accident Attorney Discusses Importance of Safety Helmets

Motorcycle accidents cause serious injuries and death to many Kansas citizens each year.   In fact, it is inevitable that any motorcycle accident is likely to result in serious injuries, at a minimum.  While motorcyclists are certainly taking a risk by sharing Kansas roadways with semi-trucks, automobiles, pickup trucks, and fellow motorcyclists, they still should be protected and are entitled to compensation when their injuries are caused by another’s negligent conduct.

Under Kansas law, safety helmets are only required for motorcyclists under the age of 18.  However, Kansas also has comparative fault for personal injury and other tort lawsuits, whereby a jury may decide that your failure to wear a helmet contributed to your injuries.  Your potential compensation may be reduced by the percentage you are found to be at fault for your own injuries.  This may not seem fair, but this is the standard in Kansas, and every motorcyclist should be aware of the limits that may be placed on a potential personal injury lawsuit.

To ensure that your decision to operate your motorcycle without a safety helmet does not hinder your ability to receive compensation for your injuries, you should allow a Kansas City motorcycle accident attorney to review your potential case in great detail.  It takes the skill of a qualified motorcycle accident attorney to determine if a negligent driver was at fault for causing the accident that you were involved in, and this is the most important part of your case.  Whether or not you were wearing a helmet should not be the most important factor considered, and you deserve an attorney who will do his or her best to limit the negative impact of your choice to not wear a safety helmet.

Drivers Are In a Better Position to Avoid Motorcycle Accidents

Many motorcyclists drive too fast on our Kansas highways, and drive erratically, changing lanes frequently without signaling.  However, this is not representative of most Kansas motorcyclists.  The fact of the matter is that many drivers operate their vehicles dangerously on our Kansas roadways as well, and this poses a serious risk of harm to other motorists, but especially motorcyclists.  Motorcyclists are naturally at risk for harm due to the small size of the motorcycle and the lack of a protected vehicle.  Cars and trucks have greater visibility and can move to avoid hitting a smaller motorcycle much easier than they can avoid hitting another car or truck.

Motorists often have trouble sharing the road, and must learn to do so in order to promote the safety of all drivers in an effort to prevent unnecessary accidents.  This unfortunately is not the case for many motorists, and this results in motorcycle accidents on a regular basis.  Motorcyclists have a duty to adhere to all Kansas traffic laws, but they are not in a position to avoid accidents in the same way that cars and trucks can.  Until the majority of motorists can learn to safely share the road, accident will continue to occur, and the consequences will be the serious injury and possible death of hundreds of innocent motorcyclists.
