Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Knoxville
Since riders have no protection between their body, other vehicles, or the asphalt, the injuries they incur are usually critical or deadly.
Even the most cautious motorcyclists face dramatically higher odds of being injured in a motor vehicle accident than the occupants of the other truck or car involved. According to recently published data monitored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcycle riders are at five times greater risk of sustaining injuries than anyone else involved in the accident.

Personal injury is a frequent outcome of motorcycle crashes, as riders often need emergency medical care and lengthy hospitalizations. As a result, injured motorcyclists often have no choice but to take time off of work and face a substantial loss of income while they convalesce.
These life-changing injuries will cost thousands of dollars in medical expenses that will most likely cause the victim and their family to undergo financial hardships from which they may never recover.

Catastrophic injuries, like traumatic brain injury or even a fatality, can be the result of a serious motorcycle crash, especially if another vehicle is involved. This is due to the fact that motorcycles do not provide their operators with any of the safety features that those inside a passenger vehicle take for granted, like seat belts, airbags, or a roll cage, making riders vulnerable to sustaining serious internal injuries, along with injuries to their brain and spinal cord.
If you were recently injured by the carelessness of another driver, then we firmly recommend that you meet with a dedicated personal injury attorney by calling (865) 531-9400 and booking an appointment for a free assessment of your Tennessee motorcycle accident claim and guidance on the next legal steps you should take based on your circumstances.
