Riding a motorcycle may give you a sense of freedom, but you don’t feel so free when a careless driver cuts you off or rear-ends you. This probably happens far too often on the streets of Nashville, Smyrna, and Murfreesboro, but when the incident is more than a minor scuffle and you end up in the road with serious injuries, you need a personal injury attorney who will stand up to the insurance company for the negligent driver to get you the compensation you deserve for your losses. We are proud to represent motorcycle riders when they are injured by careless and negligent drivers in the Nashville area. An accident claim involving a serious injury can be an uphill battle for a biker, but with us by your side, it will at least be a fair fight.

Typical Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Even when wearing safety gear such as a helmet, boots, gloves, and protective clothing, motorcyclists are vulnerable. If they are knocked off their bike and hit the pavement, they are likely to suffer serious injuries. Some of the typical motorcycle accident injuries we see in our office include the following:
Traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Even when wearing a helmet, a rider’s brain can be shaken in his skull, resulting in a concussion, contusion, brain bleed, or worse. A TBI can permanently impair motor and cognitive function.
A rider’s back is completely unprotected in a collision with a car. If the spinal cord is damaged, the rider could be paralyzed from the point of injury down. Even when not causing paralysis, broken vertebrae could cause lifelong pain and disability.
Motorcyclists absorb the impact of a collision with their bodies, often resulting in broken bones. Pelvic fractures, broken hips, compound fractures in arms and legs, and back and neck fractures are some of the more serious injuries caused by a motorcycle crash.
Road Rash And Other Lacerations
Any exposed skin that hits pavement can be scraped off, resulting in road rash. When gravel and other debris is ground into the open wound, serious infection can result.
Contact with the exhaust pipe or engine of the motorcycle can cause third-degree burns that could require long-term treatment, skin grafts, and cause permanent disfigurement.
These kinds of injuries can require millions of dollars in medical treatment and ongoing care. Victims of serious motorcycle crashes often require lifelong therapy and assistance. When your crash was caused by a driver who was speeding, using his cell phone, or just not paying attention, our attorneys will fight to get you the compensation you will need to cover these expenses.
