They’re sleek, speedy and growing in popularity. But motorcycles can also be dangerous and deadly. With motorcycle accidents on the rise, it’s more important than ever for motorcycle victims to find experienced, aggressive accident attorneys to protect their legal rights and help them gain compensation for their losses. With years of experience in accident litigation, the attorneys at Arena Law Firm are well-equipped for this job.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) notes that at least three quarters of motorcycle accidents are due to motorcycle-car collisions. Because motorcycles are often ignored by drivers, motorcyclists take on an additional risk when they take to the streets. Unfavorable weather conditions, distracted drivers, inexperienced motorcyclists, alcohol, and a variety of other factors contribute to motorcycle accidents in Tennessee.
Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents can cause life-long injury and even death. Failure to wear a helmet or proper safety gear is often a factor, though motorcyclists are required to wear a helmet under Tennessee law. Additionally, all motorcycle helmets must meet the standards of and be approved by the Tennessee Department of Transportation. Due to the many parties who may be involved in a motorcycle accident and the often gruesome injuries, it is not uncommon to have involvement from a number of insurance companies, drivers, doctors, and expert witnesses in a motorcycle accident case. The attorneys at Arena Law Firm have the resources and experience necessary to properly pursue just compensation for victims of motorcycle accidents.
Whether you’ve been injured by an unsafe or negligent driver or due to your driver error, know what to do in case of a motorcycle accident. Be sure to document the accident as well as possible and obtain any police or medical reports available. Get identifying and insurance information from all parties involved in a crash, and do not sign any paperwork or proceed to negotiate with insurance companies until you’ve found a competent accident attorney.
Proper post-accident procedure can protect your legal rights after a motorcycle accident, but nothing can replace the peace of mind and in-court advantage that comes along with a competent attorney. From investigating the accident to getting expert testimony, we at Arena Law Firm can help you fight and win your motorcycle accident case.
