Every motorcycle rider knows that the thrill of the open road can carry a price. Motorcycle accidents are far too common and can often be physically and mentally devastating. While many such accidents could be avoided if motorists were simply more aware of their surroundings and respected riders’ rightful place on the road, until that happens motorcycle accidents will remain a tragic reality.
The Knoxville motorcycle accident attorneys of Menefee & Brown, P.C. understand the special safety issues that riders face. Also importantly, we understand how those issues can affect the legal claim of a motorcycle rider. We strive to guide our clients through the legal process—from discovery, to negotiations, and ultimately to trial if necessary—and provide support so they can focus on recovery.
Riders have the same rights on the road as any other motorist. And drivers should exercise the degree of care necessary to ensure the safety of those around them, regardless of the vehicle type. The fact that a motorcycle more easily slips into a blind spot or is more difficult to see at night is not an excuse following an accident. Drivers of other vehicles still have the same duties of care and are still legally responsible for their negligent acts. For injured motorcyclists, this can mean substantial compensation for you and your family, including past and future medical expenses, lost or reduced wages, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and other types of compensation.
You do not have to face insurance companies alone. Our Knoxville motorcycle accident lawyers can research your case, gather evidence, and negotiate with the responsible party on your behalf. All the while we remain prepared to go to trial should the defense prove unreasonable and recalcitrant. In this way, we strive to get prompt and cost effective results for our clients while never forgetting that the key to negotiation is the ability and willingness to do what is necessary to achieve a just result.
At Menefee & Brown, P.C. we put our clients first. We understand that many of our injured clients count on receiving a settlement, award, or judgment to pay their bills following a serious accident. We listen to the needs of our clients and always make them our top priority. We strive to be responsive to our clients, making every effort to keep them informed as their cases progress.
