Riding a motorcycle is a unique experience. Not only are you on two wheels, but you’re also completely exposed to the open air as you cruise down Tennessee’s highways and interstates. Being exposed can create a tremendous sense of freedom and independence while you ride, but it’s also the reason why motorcycles are statistically more dangerous than passenger vehicles, especially when they’re involved in accidents.
At Ponce Law, our Nashville motorcycle accident attorneys know that most riders are safety-conscious people who follow traffic laws and wear full safety gear, including helmets, riding jackets and pants, gloves, and boots. But even the most well-prepared and cautious riders can still be severely injured during accidents when other drivers are negligent or don’t pay attention to their surroundings.
Two of the most common and most devastating injuries that can occur during motorcycle accidents include:
Brain injuries – Tennessee law requires that all riders wear helmets when they venture out on public roadways. Riders who wear helmets are less likely to suffer fatal injuries during accidents, but they may still suffer traumatic brain injuries, as even the best helmets can only offer so much protection for the skull and brain during a crash.
Leg and feet injuries – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that around 30 percent of non-fatal motorcycle injuries involved victims’ legs and feet. Road rash, broken bones, and even amputations are all possible outcomes during motorcycle accidents, even when victims are wearing protective pants and boots.
Motorcycle accidents can lead to disability and prolonged recovery periods that involve hospital stays, surgeries, and physical rehabilitation. Don’t pay out of pocket for an accident that wasn’t your fault. Call us today for a free consultation.

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!

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS
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.
