Tennessee motorcyclist killed after being struck by pickup truck

Riding a motorcycle can be fun and relaxing. Yet, their small size leaves motorcycle riders at a higher risk of being seriously injured in a crash. Because motorcycles do not have the same safety features as cars and other motor vehicles, a motorcycle accident can have tragic consequences. In the blink of an eye, an inattentive driver can fail to yield and strike a motorcycle, causing serious injury or death. One such instance happened recently in Martin, and Knoxville residents should be aware that these accidents can happen anywhere and at any time.

In the Martin crash, a man was killed when his motorcycle collided with a pickup truck. Though the exact cause of this wreck is still under investigation, in many instances like this a negligent or distracted driver is to blame. When a motorcyclist faces serious injury or death at the hands of a negligent or inattentive driver, victims and their families face physical, emotional and financial devastation. However, a lawsuit can help ease some of these burdens.

Legal action can help motorcycle accident victims and their families recover compensation for a variety of damages. Medical expenses, pain and suffering and lost wages can all be recouped, and, in the worst scenarios, funeral costs can be recovered.

Though legal action may not make a motorcycle accident victim completely whole again, it can go a long way in helping people return to a normal life. A lawsuit can also ensure that victims and their families are not unjustly burdened with medical expenses. Riding a motorcycle should be fun and relaxing. A lawsuit will punish those who turn such a great experience into a life-altering nightmare.
