On June 21, 2017, an electronic display on Interstate 24 flashed that so far in 2017, 61 motorcycle riders have been killed in Tennessee. Therefore, 6 months into the year more 2 motorcycle riders a week are dying in accidents. We also know from the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security statistics that there were 369 motorcycle accidents in Davidson County and another 151 in Rutherford County in 2016. That means there was more than one motorcycle accident a day in Davidson County in 2016.
Just like pedestrians or bicycle riders, motorcyclists are more vulnerable when sharing the road with vehicles. Any accident involving a motorcycle and a vehicle can have devastating consequences to all involved but especially the motorcyclists. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you need an experienced attorney’s office that knows the rules of the road and has experience in handling these type of claims.
