The roads abound with motorcycle users and as the number of riders increase, so increases the chances of injury. In Tenessee alone, there are an estimated 3,000 accidents a year, about 140 of which are fatal. A pleasure ride can instantly become a life-altering event.
Motorcyclists are particularly susceptible to injury due to the open and exposed rider and there is no protective covering like in a car. Coupled with no seatbelts, the risk of injury is heightened.
In a fatal motorcycle accident, a wrongful death suit can help the suffering survivors receive adequate care.
