Tennessee Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
The number of motorcycles on American roads has increased steadily in recent years. Unfortunately, motorcycles provide limited protection to their riders, and are less visible to other drivers than larger vehicles. As a result, motorcyclists have an increased risk of serious injury and death from accidents with cars and trucks. In fact, over 80 percent of motorcycle accidents lead to serious injury or death.
Motorcycle accidents can be the result of:
- Careless or negligent drivers of other vehicles failing to see and observe the motorcyclist
- Drunk drivers
- Hit and run drivers
- Commercial drivers failing to follow the rules meant to secure public safety
- Defective design and production of motorcycles and motorcycle parts
- Defective mechanical systems, safety equipment, and tires
Injuries from severe motorcycle accidents diminish your quality of life and your ability to earn a living. The devastating injuries faced by motorcycle riders can include:
- Brain and Spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones and Internal injuries
In addition to the physical anguish, the emotional stress of escalating medical bills, dealing with insurance adjusters, and managing future medical care can overwhelm the average person.
