Need an Injury Lawyer for a Motorcycle Accident in Tennessee?
Since 1998, fatal motorcycle accidents in Tennessee have been on the rise. In 1998, there were only 42 fatal motorcycle accidents. By 2016, this number jumped to 147.
These numbers are not limited to just one area or just one demographic. Nationwide, it has been shown that motorcycle accidents are only slightly more likely to happen in an urban area than a rural area, according to 2015 statistics. While some may think a motorcycle signifies youth and recklessness, statistics do not support that. 54 percent of those who were killed in motorcycle accidents nationwide in 2015 were over 40 years old.

What Causes a Motorcycle Accident?
There are a lot of ways in which someone riding a motorcycle can get into an accident. Sometimes, the accident can be caused by your environment. Flaws in the road can create conditions that cause a crash. Other times, the drivers sharing the road with you can cause an accident. A car can veer into your lane without having seen your motorcycle. Sometimes, a car will not see you passing their vehicle and open their car door from their parking place.
If you have suffered through any of these circumstances, compensation is available to help with the financial and emotional trauma that results from a motorcycle accident.
What Injuries Result From a Motorcycle Accident?
The injuries that are sustained from a motorcycle accident can oftentimes be more serious than that of a car crash. There is nothing to protect you from your surroundings during a motorcycle crash. Motorcyclists can suffer from broken bones, road rash, disfigurement, or even a traumatic brain injury. Many motorcycle crashes can cause disabilities for the victims.
With these injuries, the victim of a motorcycle crash will accrue medical bills for months and possibly years to come, depending on the severity of their injuries. Severe injuries can also result in lost wages, as some victims will not be able to immediately return to work after they are hurt in a motorcycle crash. The impact on the finances of a motorcycle accident can impact the lives of a victim and their family for a long time after the crash.
