Nashville Bicycle Accident Attorney
Bicycles are often touted as a great way to maintain fitness, build strength,
and remain active at any age. However, there is also a dark disadvantage
to riding a bike. While bicycles make up 1% of miles traveled, they account
for over 2% of all fatalities and injuries. That may seem insignificant,
but it indicates that cyclists are hurt in crashes at
double the rate that their road investment would indicate.
At Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge, we help injured parties hold negligent
parties accountable for their actions, or lack thereof. Our attorneys
have over a century of combined experience. We are true
trial lawyers, with hundreds of cases taken before a jury on our record. Our verdicts
continue to set the bar across Tennessee, with multiple jury awards worth
millions of dollars.

Increasing Rates of Fatality & Suffering
Bicyclists in the U.S. are facing a growing crisis as collision rates climb.
In 2013, 743 cyclists were killed on the road and 48,000 were injured.
Both of those numbers represent a
significant increase since 2011. The reason for these fatalities is not yet known—some
cite the aging population of cyclists, as the average age of those killed
or injured has climbed to 41 and 31, respectively.
Other statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
include the following:
- 70% of cyclists were injured or killed in urban settings
- Two-thirds of these collisions took place at non-intersections.
- Nearly 25% of these collisions took place between 6pm and 9pm
