Motorcycle Crashes & Victims’ Rights

Motorcycles are both pastime and passion, and Middle Tennessee offers remarkable stretches of roadway for riders to enjoy. Unfortunately, the thrill of traveling local roads or opening up on highways comes with great risks – and those risks can be exacerbated by the negligence of others.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a motorcycle wreck, or if you have lost a loved one in a fatal collision, you may have the right to seek compensation for your losses by pursuing a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. As civil claims, these suits allow victims to hold responsible parties financially responsible for the damages they caused.

Often, motorcycle accident cases are brought over claims of negligence against motorists, product manufacturers, public entities, and other potentially liable parties. Examples include:

  • Failures to yield, failures to obey traffic signals (running a red light), and other violations;
  • Unsafe lane changes, failure to check for motorcyclists;
  • Distracted driving, drunk driving
  • Roadway hazards, including fallen cargo or defectively designed or maintained roads.
  • Defective products, including faulty tires, brakes, and other motorcycle components.
  • Wrecks caused by commercial vehicles and tractor-trailers, including drivers or operators which violate federal trucking regulations.

Do I Have Motorcycle Accident Case?

Whether you have a valid claim will depend entirely on the facts of the case, and the unique circumstances involved. Because motorcycle wrecks are high-value cases, and because insurance companies care more about profits than people, it’s not uncommon for riders to face disputes over fault and liability, often in the form of defendants arguing the alleged “recklessness” of riders caused or contributed to their crashes.

With experienced advocates on your side, you can level the playing field for dealing with insurance companies, and position yourself for the best possible recovery.

Our firm offers free, no-risk consultations during which we can evaluate your crash, whether you have grounds to pursue legal action, and how we may be of assistance.

What’s My Motorcycle Accident Claim Worth?

Case value is different for everyone, and is based on the unique circumstances involved. While some riders are lucky to escape wrecks with injuries from which they can recover, others can be left with permanent and profound disabilities, including:

The nature, severity, and prognosis of injuries sustained in wrecks is one of many factors that can determine potential case value. Other factors include the:

  • Type and amount of surgeries / procedures , rehabilitation, and therapy required;
  • Duration of recovery, and the amount of time victims have limited or temporarily disabled function;
  • Amount of missed work and wages, and the ability / inability to continue working or performing the same job as before;
  • Long-term needs of victims with lasting impairments (i.e. accommodations, assistive devices, walkers, wheelchairs, etc.);
  • Physical and psychological injuries suffered by victims and their families.

Our team at KCB meticulously investigates crashes to evaluate an underlying cause, what parties may be held at fault, and where sufficient insurance coverage exists.

We also leverage the insight of our Certified Civil Trial Specialists and collaborate with experts to assess the severity of injuries and the scope of their impact on victims’ lives – especially if there are lasting impairments, disabilities, and long-term or life-long repercussions.

What Damages Can Injured Motorcyclists / Families Recover?

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Lost income / lost potential income
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional suffering, mental anguish, loss of quality of life
  • Permanent disability or disfigurement (i.e. paralysis, spinal cord injuries)
