What types of motorcycle accidents do your Clarksville attorneys handle?

Our Clarksville motorcycle accident attorneys are well-equipped to handle a diverse range of motorcycle accidents, including:

  • Lane splitting accidents. Motorcycle accidents that result from riding between lanes can present unique challenges, and our attorneys are experienced in handling such cases.
  • Rear-end collisions. Motorcycles are more vulnerable to being rear-ended, and our attorneys are adept at addressing liability issues in these situations.
  • Single-vehicle accidents. Loss of control, skidding, or other factors can lead to accidents even without direct involvement of another vehicle.
  • Multi-vehicle pileups. In cases where multiple vehicles are involved, our attorneys have the expertise to navigate the complexities of liability and seek appropriate compensation.
  • Hit-and-run incidents. Our team is experienced in dealing with hit-and-run cases, employing legal strategies to track down responsible parties and seek justice.
  • Defective motorcycle parts. Accidents caused by faulty motorcycle parts or manufacturing defects fall under our expertise in product liability.

In 2021, 2,875 motorcycle accidents occurred in Tennessee, and 160 people died. Motorcyclists are also 5.1 times more likely to be killed or injured in a crash than other types of drivers. Further, 72% of motorcycle accidents happen during the day, but accidents that occur after dark are 2.4 times more likely to result in a fatality.

Our Clarksville personal injury attorneys are committed to providing comprehensive legal support to motorcyclists who have suffered injuries due to the negligence or actions of others on the road.

  • Lost income. Compensation for any income lost due to the accident, including wages from missed work and potential future earnings if the injuries result in long-term or permanent disability.

What types of injuries occur in Clarksville motorcycle accidents?

Motorcycle accidents in Clarksville can result in a wide range of injuries due to the vulnerability of motorcyclists on the road. Common injuries include:

  • Road rash. The abrasions and lacerations that occur when a rider skids across the road surface.
  • Fractures and broken bones. The impact of a motorcycle accident can lead to fractures and breaks, particularly in the limbs and extremities.
  • Brain injuries. Even with helmets, riders can suffer traumatic brain injuries, concussions, or other head injuries in accidents, especially if the helmet is improperly worn or of inadequate quality.
  • Spinal cord injuries. The spine is vulnerable in motorcycle accidents, and injuries to the spinal cord can result in paralysis or long-term neurological issues.
  • Soft tissue injuries. Muscles, ligaments, and tendons can be strained, sprained, or torn in a motorcycle accident, causing pain and limiting mobility.
  • Internal injuries. The force of impact can cause internal injuries, such as organ damage or internal bleeding, which may not be immediately apparent but can be life-threatening.
  • Disfigurement and scarring. Severe accidents can lead to permanent disfigurement or scarring, impacting not only physical health but also emotional well-being.
