Motorcycle accidents are often the most tragic and heartbreaking accidents on the road. With the limited safety mechanisms motorcyclists have at their disposal, there is no doubt that when an accident happens they are more susceptible to injuries than someone riding in a car. The experienced Memphis motorcycle accident lawyers at Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz have been battling insurance companies for the past 25 years, providing compensation to injured Memphis motorcyclists. As the largest personal injury law firm based in Tennessee, NST’s motor vehicle collision attorneys have the resources and support staff to help those injured pursue the compensation that they deserve.Seeking Compensation for Motorcycle Wreck Victims in Memphis
Much like a traditional car accident case, a motorcyclist injured in an accident will have to prove that someone negligently caused the accident to occur. This is one of the first steps in establishing a valid claim for damages. Negligence can be found in several ways, including drunk driving, failing to yield or stop, speeding, fatigued driving, distracted driving, or following too close. Moreover, specifically for motorcycle accidents, our lawyers know to investigate for any defects in the road and look for any potential products liability claims that may exist.
The motorcycle accident lawyers at our Memphis firm will act expeditiously on your case because injured parties generally only have one year from the date of the accident to bring a personal injury lawsuit in Tennessee. It is important to confirm whether or not the at-fault party has insurance, and if not, whether the injured motorcyclist has uninsured motorist coverage. In the state of Tennessee, any driver on the road is required to carry a minimum of $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident in liability insurance. However, some drivers do not always respect the laws and often decide not to purchase auto insurance. If it is found the at-fault driver does not have any insurance, injured parties can utilize their personal uninsured motorist insurance to compensate for the at-fault party’s lack of liability coverage.
There are many forms of compensation available to those injured in motorcycle wrecks. Our attorneys vigorously pursue our client’s economic losses such as loss of income and medical expenses, as well as non-economic losses like pain and suffering, loss of consortium, permanent disfigurement, and loss of enjoyment of life. Experienced lawyers know the impact a motorcycle accident can have on a family, and we strive to obtain the damages to which our clients are entitled.Retain a Knowledgeable Memphis Motorcycle Accident Attorney
