Motorcycle Accidents

Knoxville TN Personal Injury Attorney, Motorcycle Accident Lawyer and Tennessee Truck Accident Attorney

A motorcycle accident is usually more traumatic than an auto accident. Such accidents often involve serious injuries and can be personally and financially devastating. In spite of the stereotypes, the fact is that most motorcycle accidents are the fault of reckless automobile drivers and not the motorcyclist.

Car & Motorcycle Accident often, negligent automobile drivers place motorcyclists at great risk of serious personal injury. Generally, the driver of the automobile does not notice the motorcycle until it is too late to avoid a serious accident that more often than not results in greater and more life-threatening injuries to the motorcycle driver.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that in 2003 there were 3,661 motorcyclists killed and an additional 67,000 were injured in traffic crashes in the United States, 12 percent more than the 3,270 motorcyclist fatalities and 4 percent more than the 65,000 motorcyclist injuries reported in 2002. Additionally, more than 100,000 motorcyclists have died in traffic crashes since the enactment of the Highway Safety and National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966.

Many personal injury attorneys are hesitant to defend the rights of injured motorcyclists because of the perceived increased dangers associated with motorcycles and the mistaken belief that such accidents can be difficult to defend, even if the cause is the other party's negligence. The lawyers at The Law Offices of OGLE, ELROD & BARIL, PLLC are ready to defend you and guide you safely through the process of recovering the money you are owed.

All accidents cause great heartache for the victims and their families. If you or someone you love has been in a motorcycle accident, the same laws apply as if you were in a car or truck. These laws require that the person or company responsible pay for your motorcycle accident repairs and injuries. It is important you understand the dangers associated with motorcycles and the rights you have if you're ever in a motorcycle accident.

Motorcycle accidents have terrible, life transforming consequences for the individuals who operate them on the road.  Despite the fact that society's perception of motorcycle drivers shrouds them in a tough persona, the fact is that motorcyclists have very little to safeguard these individuals from devastating accidental injuries should they be in an accident their helmets and protective gear are unable to compete against 1000's of pounds of metal.  To make things worse, nearly all motorcycle accidents are the result of other vehicle operators on the highway, not cyclists.

Many of the most common injuries motorcyclists obtain in an accident are:

*Broken bones

*Head injuries

*Road rash

*Spinal cord injuries

*Back injuries

*Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
