Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Tennessee

Many motorcycle accidents occur due to poor road conditions or another driver’s negligence. Motorcycles are especially vulnerable to accidents when road surfaces are rough, ungraded, or cluttered with debris.

If you’re involved in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you can file a claim against them. Some examples of potential causes that may contribute to a motorcycle accident include:

  • Drivers with alcohol in their system
  • Failure of another driver to recognize a motorcycle is present
  • Poorly-designed or poorly-maintained roads
  • Failure to signal or check blind spots when changing lanes
  • Construction zones not properly cleared
  • Errors or negligence on the part of the motorcyclist
  • Mechanical failure or limits of the motorcycle (such as poor upkeep, misalignment, or speed “wobble”)

Tennessee is an “at fault” state with a contributory negligence rule of 49%. It means a motorcyclist who partially contributed less than 50% to the cause of the accident could seek recovery minus the percentage they contributed to causing it.

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcycle crashes can lead to severe injury or even wrongful death for the rider, regardless of whether a single-vehicle accident or a car, truck, or van collision. Despite efforts to encourage other drivers to watch for motorcycles and to be extra careful in their vicinity, many motorcycle accidents lead to severe or catastrophic injuries. Because motorcycles remain more difficult to see, they tend to lose their upright connection with the road under various circumstances, exposing riders directly to road dangers, other vehicles, and the surrounding environment.

Many motorcycle riders are unprotected or under-protected. Head and neck injuries occur frequently among motorcyclists, even when wearing helmets or other protective gear. If you have been in a motorcycle accident, injuries that you could have sustained include:

What To Do Following a Motorcycle Accident

If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, follow these steps as soon as possible:

  • Call an ambulance to the scene if the accident demands immediate medical attention. Otherwise, seek medical treatment for your injuries as soon as you leave the crash site.
  • Take photos of the crash site, property damage, and injuries from multiple angles.
  • Report the incident to the authorities by filing a police report.
  • Contact your insurance company to report the accident. Avoid signing any documents or agreeing to any settlement offers.
  • Stay off social media and do not allow posts showing you at events or participating in activities, as these could damage your case if taken out of context.
