Tennessee Residence - Look Twice for Motorcyclists
Posted on behalf of Greg Coleman Law on May 22, 2013 in Motorcycle Accident
As the warmer summer weather is upon us, there will be more motorcyclists dusting their bikes off and entering our roadways. Thus, it is important to remember to check twice before changing lanes and pulling out onto the road, as these vehicles are difficult to spot. In fact, according to the Department of Safety and Homeland Security there were 139 total motorcyclist fatalities in 2012 throughout the state of Tennessee.
Of course, some of these accidents are caused by motorists not paying attention for motorcyclists, however many accidents are also caused by negligent motorcyclists. Motorcyclists must also remember to abide by all traffic laws, speed limits, and practice defensive driving techniques as they are more difficult to spot.
At Greg Coleman Law, our experienced Knoxville personal injury lawyers believe that if you or a family member has been injured or killed in a motorcycle accident by the negligent actions of another driver, that negligent individual must be held responsible and pay for all damages and losses they have caused.
