Most Motorcycle Accidents Are Caused by Other Vehicles
In Tennessee, as in other states, the vast majority of motorcycle accidents cannot be attributed to the recklessness or negligence of the motorcycle’s operator. Rather, these crashes are often caused by:
- Car drivers who are unfamiliar with the physics of motorcycles, and don’t accurately judge the motorcycle’s weight and speed when merging, turning, or changing lanes.
- Unsafe road conditions, which may be attributable to the negligence of the municipality (say, a pothole on a road that has been reported numerous times, but still has not been repaired).
- Drivers who tailgate motorcycles, usually in an attempt to get their operators to change lanes or yield the right of way (since many people are uncomfortable driving behind motorcycles) or who are operating their vehicle recklessly or even driving under the influence.
If you try to recover damages from the at-fault driver in the wake of a car accident or truck accident, their lawyer will most likely attempt to show that you contributed to the incident, either by speeding, weaving inappropriately between cars, riding two or three abreast in the same lane with other bikers, or climbing up onto the shoulder of the road to avoid a traffic jam. In the most successful lawsuits, a rider can demonstrate that he or she did not contribute in any way to the accident, and that their injuries are directly attributable to the recklessness or negligence of another driver (or the failure of the municipality to maintain the road or its signals).
