Recent Years Have Seen an Increase in Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcycle accident fatalities have surged recently in Tennessee. In the first five months of 2023, the number of people killed in motorcycle accidents is up more than 25% from the prior year. For every fatality in a motorcycle crash, numerous other accident victims will suffer life-changing injuries. The surge in serious accidents is not just the result of more motorcyclists. Drivers are not exercising due care when they are around motorcyclists on the road.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Here are some common causes of motorcycle accidents:

  • Drivers make an illegal left turn and cut across the motorcyclist’s path
  • Motorists do not check their blindspots before changing lanes and cut off the biker
  • Drivers are distracted, or are speeding, and they run into the back of the motorcyclist
  • The road is in poor condition, or is improperly signed, causing the motorcyclist to lose control
  • A motorist stops short in front of the biker, causing them to run into the back of the car

How You Can Get Compensation for Motorcycle Accident Injury

In order to get compensation for a motorcycle accident injury, you would need to file a successful claim or lawsuit. In either one, you would need to prove that the driver was responsible for your injuries. 

It may be hard for you to gather evidence on your own, especially because you are dealing with serious physical injuries. Your lawyer will investigate what happened and compile the proof that you need to prove legal responsibility. Then, an attorney will estimate the damages that you would deserve in a settlement. 

Damages in Your Motorcycle Accident

Motorcycle accident injuries tend to be more severe, on average, than those suffered in car accidents. The motorcyclist will almost always be either struck directly by the car or thrown to the ground (and often, both). It follows that motorcycle accident settlements also tend to be larger than those in car accident cases because your compensation is directly tied to the severity of your injuries. 

Your motorcycle accident damages can include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Emotional distress

If your loved one died in the motorcycle accident, your family can file a claim against the responsible driver in accordance with Tennessee’s wrongful death law

Your Motorcycle Accident Lawyer May Need to Take on the Insurance Company 

The insurance company will try to make your claim more difficult. One thing that they try to weaponize against you is the perception that motorcyclists are riskier than the average person. They will use that to try to find a way to blame you for the accident. However, motorcycle accidents are often caused by inattentive or reckless drivers. 

Even if they do not deny your claim entirely, they may try to partially blame you, so they can reduce what they have to pay you. A motorcycle accident attorney would need to defend you from any allegations at the same time that they prove that the driver was responsible. The facts of your case will not speak for themselves – you will need a lawyer to present them and tell your story.
