Part of the Nashville Metropolitan Area and located just 30 minutes from some of Music City USA's most popular attractions, Smyrna, Tennessee, is a great place to live, work, and retire. Thanks to well-maintained roads and scenic views, it's also an ideal city for motorcycle enthusiasts. Though it was once a well-kept secret, the word on what makes this charming bedroom community so special is officially out. More people moving to the area means more vehicles on the road and, unfortunately, more accidents. Sadly, when these crashes involve motorcycles, the results can be particularly devastating.
If you were hurt or lost a loved one in a Smyrna motorcycle accident stemming from another person's or entity's negligence or carelessness, you could be entitled to substantial compensation for your injuries and losses. However, motorcycle crashes aren't typical car accident cases, and at-fault parties—and their insurers and defense attorneys—aren't likely to provide fair damages without a fight. Don't let a savvy insurance adjuster or lawyer trick you into sabotaging your own claim or settling for less than you deserve. Having previously represented insurance companies, Weir & Kestner Injury Lawyers' accomplished attorneys, Joe Weir and Tony Kestner, have valuable insight into how the other side treats these complex cases. Want to win your case and lose your stress? Weir & Kestner can help. Here's what you need to know.
Experience That Matters for Complex Smyrna Motorcycle Crash Cases
Motorcycle accidents aren't typical fender-benders. Here are a few examples of factors that set these wrecks apart from most other types of crashes:
- Catastrophic injuries and damages. When a passenger vehicle collides with a motorcycle, the lack of external protection means that the motorcyclist often suffers catastrophic injuries that can require costly ongoing medical care. Our exceptional legal team can help you keep track of your expenses and properly value your losses.
- Scarring and disfigurement. Because motorcyclists aren't surrounded by a hard protective shell, there's not much that stands between them and the road in an accident. Extensive scarring and disfiguring facial and dental injuries aren't uncommon, and they can wreak havoc on your self-esteem, employment prospects, and social relationships. We can help you fight for a fair award with these life-changing injuries in mind.
- Potential for significant settlements or financial awards. Since they often involve extensive injuries and losses, motorcycle accident claims can result in sizeable settlements or financial awards. While insurance companies and defense attorneys will fight to reduce their financial obligation to you and your claim, our adept Smyrna injury lawyers will advocate for your best interests every step of the way.
- Anti-motorcyclist bias. If it seems like people involved in your motorcycle accident insurance claim or lawsuit doubt your version of events and secretly think you're to blame for your injuries and losses, you're not just imagining things. Unfair bias against motorcyclists exists—and it can hurt your recovery. Fortunately, our seasoned Smyrna motorcycle lawyers will gather the evidence needed to prove both fault and losses so that you can collect fair damages.
