Any collision involving a motorcycle and another vehicle can cause serious injuries to the motorcyclist and any passengers. Since motorcyclists have little protection other than a helmet, they are more vulnerable to serious and catastrophic injuries including traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), neck and spinal cord injuries and paralysis. A serious accident may leave you partially disabled and unable to handle the physical demands of your former job.

All drivers have a responsibility to remain focused on driving and alert for other vehicles. Many multi-vehicle collisions involving motorcycles are caused by other motorists’ failure to see motorcycles.
A significant portion of motorcycle accidents are caused by cars failing to yield to oncoming motorcyclists at intersections and making negligent left turns in front of them. It is common for the driver of the car or truck to try to blame the accident on the motorcyclist. Unless the motorcyclist was driving illegally, the driver of the car making a left turn will almost always be at fault in such an accident.
Motorcycles also are susceptible to accidents caused by road hazards such as uneven pavement, potholes, loose debris and slick surfaces caused by poor drainage. If a motorcyclist is injured as a result of a road obstruction or improper road maintenance, whatever public or private agency that is responsible for the road’s maintenance may be liable. A city, county or state transportation agency may be responsible for poor road conditions. A driver who dropped cargo onto the road, creating a road hazard, could also be responsible for a crash.
Some motorcyclists sustain only minor scrapes and sprains. But since motorcyclists have little protection other than a helmet, they are vulnerable to serious injuries and catastrophic injuries including traumatic brain injuries, neck and spinal cord injuries and paralysis.
Regaining your health after a serious motorcycle accident may involve an extensive recovery and months of physical therapy. It is not uncommon to have thousands of dollars in medical bills. The at-fault driver and his or her insurance company should pay for your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering and other expenses.
If a negligent driver or a poor road conditions caused you to have a motorcycle accident, talk to an experienced Nashville motorcycle accident attorney. Tennessee allows only a certain amount of time to file a personal injury lawsuit after an accident, so it is important to contact a knowledgeable motorcycle accident lawyer promptly.
