Nashville Motorcycle Accident Attorney: In a motorcycle or moped crash, the rider does not have the protection of a metal vehicle surrounding them, nor safety devices such as an airbag or padded dash. As a result, motorcyclists are much more susceptible to severe injuries in an accident than the occupant of a car or truck.
Here at Taylor & Associates Law Group – Our motorcycle accident attorneys have the resources and experience to help you pursue the maximum compensation for your injuries for loss in a motorcycle crash. Under Tennessee Law, a motorcycle is excluded from the no-fault insurance law. This means that the driver of a motor vehicle that hits a motorcycle does not have the defenses available under the auto no-fault law. In many motorcycle accidents, the victim can recover money damages from the at-fault driver without having to prove that they are permanently injured. The only question is how much money the victim should be awarded for their injury or loss. A motorcycle accident is usually the fault of the driver of the other vehicle. People don’t show respect for motorcycles and often cut in front of them. If you ride enough we here at this firm believe in firmly protecting your rights. The response of many drivers after an accident is that they didn’t see the motorcyclist. The resulting damages or loss can be devastating for the victims. A motorcyclist can suffer a head injury or permanent scar from being thrown against the pavement or into heavy traffic. It’s very important for us to get good photographs of your injury immediately following the accident and during your healing to properly present your case in pre-trial settlement conferences with the insurance company and, if necessary, a jury trial.
