When should I talk to an attorney about a motorcycle accident?

You should always talk to an attorney about your motorcycle accident if you suffered personal injury or lost a loved one in the accident. Serious injury or loss can result in a significant economic and personal burden on you and your family—you should not have to bear it if someone else is responsible for your accident.

What should I do at the scene of an accident?

Follow the advice on what to do at the scene of a car accident.

Can I file a lawsuit even if I was not wearing a helmet during my motorcycle accident?

Yes, you can file a lawsuit even if you were in violation of Tennessee’s helmet laws at the time of the accident. If another person was responsible for the accident, you can still file a lawsuit, but your compensation may be reduced if your injuries are partly due to your failure to wear a helmet.

What compensation can I seek after a motorcycle accident?

After your motorcycle accident, you can seek compensation for economic and noneconomic damages due to your accident, including:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Disability and diminished earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Diminished quality of life

The exact compensation varies depending on the circumstances of your case.
