Approximately 3,000 Tennessee motorcycle accidents occur every year, and these crashes lead to 2,500 injuries and to more than 100 fatalities on average. As such, these collisions are seen as an increasing public safety problem as more and more people encounter the unforeseen need for help from experienced Nashville motorcycle accident attorneys. Below you’ll find a brief introduction to five common causes of Tennessee motorcycle accidents.

Inattentive Driving Accidents

1Many people who drive any type of vehicle fall into bad habits from time to time, and one of the most common bad habits is failing to pay a proper amount of attention to the driving environment and the roads in front of us. This is especially so with Tennessee motorcycle accidents, as people tend to fail to see these smaller vehicles.

Speeding Accidents

2When someone makes the decision to speed or simply does so out of habit, that person is markedly decreasing the margin of error available both to that driver and in response to mistakes made by other drivers. Therefore, someone who is speeding will not have as much time to avoid a collision, and every fraction of a second can make the difference between avoiding a crash and total disaster.

Aggressive Driving Collisions

3We have all seen aggressive drivers on the roads in Tennessee, and these drivers are not only bringing danger to themselves, but they are creating danger for everyone else by suddenly changing lanes, following other vehicles too closely and doing things that are not expected. Once again, aggressive drivers are less likely to see a smaller motorcycle when they are engaged in this conduct.

Alcohol Related Crashes

4Despite all of the efforts made over the years by so many different entities, drinking and driving remains a problem in Tennessee. Alcohol impairs judgment and reaction time, and it can also impair vision. This only makes it more likely that a motorist will fail to notice a motorcyclist in his or her vicinity.

Dangerous Condition Accidents

5Anyone who is familiar with the climate of Tennessee understands that the weather can turn in an instant. When a motorcyclist is caught in a storm and encounters difficult driving conditions, it makes the entire scenario much more dangerous for a motorcyclist and anyone in his or her vicinity. When visibility suffers, the danger for motorcyclists rises.

    Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

    I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!

    After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.

    I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
