Overview: Motorcycle Accidents

When motorcycle accidents happen, they can destroy lives. According to the Insurance Information Institute, motorcyclists are 27 times more likely than car occupants to die in a crash per mile traveled. Injuries from motorcycle crashes that are not fatal tend to be severe. Injuries to the neck and head, such as traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), are a leading cause of injury in nonfatal motorcycle wrecks.

If you or a loved one was injured in a motorcycle accident due to the negligence of another party, speak with an attorney. We will help you understand your best legal options and what to do after an accident.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles can travel at high speeds like other automobiles but have very limited protection in case of accidents. Many drivers who cause accidents with motorcycles simply state, “I did not see the motorcycle.” Drivers tend to notice other large vehicles but overlook smaller motorcycles. Whether caused by the motorist not observing the rider or distractions while driving, it is often too late when the driver finally does take notice.

Below are common causes of motorcycle accidents:

  • Left turns: When making a left-hand turn at an intersection, drivers may misjudge the speed of motorcycles or fail to see them all together. Often, a motorcyclist will drive straight through the intersection when a driver attempting to make a left turn collides with the motorcycle.
  • Passing a car: A motorcyclist may attempt to overtake a car when the car stops and proceeds to make a left turn, hitting the motorcycle. Tennessee law finds all drivers who collide with other vehicles while making a left turn, which includes motorcycles, responsible for negligence.
  • Changing lanes: On roads with two or more lanes, drivers sometimes attempt to enter a motorcyclist’s space while changing lanes. Cars overtaking other vehicles also may miss motorcyclists driving in the opposite direction, which can result in head-on collisions.
  • Head-on accident: Another dangerous situation can occur when cars hit motorcycles head-on. In most instances, the car collides with a motorcycle from the front. Whether the motorcycle is moving or stopped, this accident most likely will result in catastrophic effects for the rider.

How Can a Lawyer Help Me After a Crash?

Even if you believe an accident may have been partially your fault and feel that you do not have a claim, telling an attorney about what has happened is still in your best interest. The law in Tennessee abides by a system of modified comparative fault. This means that the law will still uphold your right to compensation if you are found to be less than 50% responsible for the accident.

An attorney with experience representing injury victims can help determine:

  • Whether you are at fault
  • Your percentage of fault, if any
  • What to expect if you choose to file a claim or lawsuit

Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Stan Davis has tremendous respect for motorcyclists and their passion for riding the open road. Motorcyclists do not just ride to get from point A to point B. They ride because they love it. For them, there are few things more devastating than getting into a motorcycle accident.

Motorcyclists involved in crashes often sustain debilitating injuries that can prevent them from living a normal life ever again, such as:

  • No longer being able to ride a motorcycle
  • Being paralyzed due to a spinal cord injury
  • Suffering a radical personality shift, memory loss, emotional instability, and ongoing confusion because of a traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Losing their independence because they can no longer live without assistance due to physical and/or mental disability

Another very real possibility is that a biker’s motorcycle accident injuries prove to be fatal, leaving their family to suffer, including:

  • Figuring out how to move forward after someone they expected to be in their lives for decades to come is suddenly taken from them
  • Finding a way to afford a mountain of hospital bills that were incurred before their loved one lost their life
  • Unexpectedly high funeral expenses
  • Struggling to pay living expenses if the fatal motorcycle accident victim was the family’s breadwinner

The Law Office of Stanley A. Davis has been a pillar in the Nashville community for nearly two decades. Attorney Stan Davis founded his firm to help people in this community who are suffering because of the negligence of others.

Types of Motorcycle Accident Injuries

From 2001 to 2008, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) collected data of over 1.2 million motorcyclists treated for nonfatal motorcycle accident injuries in U.S. emergency rooms during that time. According to the motorcycle accident injury statistics, the head, neck, legs, and feet were the most common areas of the body injured in nonfatal motorcycle wrecks.

Some common types of injuries that motorcyclists suffer in accidents include:

  • Road rash: This involves motorcycle accidents during which a rider slides across the pavement at some point. As a result of flying across the pavement at high speeds, motorcyclists’ clothes can be torn away, leading to their skin being scraped. Injuries from road rash can include severe skin irritation, nerve damage, and infections that require antibiotics to treat.
  • Lower body injuries: Injuries to lower extremities (such as the legs, knees, and feet) in motorcycle wrecks can include cuts, scrapes, road rash, and severely broken bones. In some motorcycle accident cases, these types of injuries can result in permanent disability.
  • Muscle injuries: Muscle damage in a motorcycle crash can be permanent, and in some cases, can lead to paralysis. In addition, the eardrum is a muscle. If the eardrum is damaged during a motorcycle crash, this can lead to deafness.
  • Head injuries: This type of injury can involve sustaining a cracked skull, neck injury, or concussion. These are all devastating injuries that can lead to paralysis, a TBI, or even death.
  • Arm injuries: Injuries to the arms often happen if a biker is thrown off their motorcycle during an accident, as it is human instinct to try to break your fall with your arms. This can result in broken bones, road rash, and permanent nerve damage, which is also known as “biker’s arm.”
