Motorcycle accidents frequently caused by negligent motorists

Operating a motorcycle requires a level of skill and confidence that may not be required by the average motorist. Due to the fact that riders are more vulnerable to serious or life-threatening injuries in the event that they are involved in motorcycle accidents, the vast majority are diligent and pay close attention to their surroundings as they ride. Unfortunately, many tragic crashes are caused by the negligence of other motorists like the one that recently occurred in Crossville, Tennessee.

It is understandably easy to make a mistake when learning a new skill. Mistakes often help an individual improve on a learned skill. Unfortunately, a mistake made as a novice driver can result in serious or even fatal consequences for anyone on the roadway. Sadly, a new driver was recently involved in one of Tennessee's recent tragic motorcycle accidents.

Motorcycle accidents: Man survives serious crash

The Tennessee Highway Patrol is urging motor vehicle operators to watch for motorcyclists. Motorcycles are fast and small, making them easy to miss and easy for motorcycle accidents to occur. The highway patrol reports that 124 motorcycle accidents occurred in 2017, and they have already seen 53 in 2018.  Sadly, these accidents can also be fatal for the rider. One man recently experienced his own accident and has fortunately lived to recount the serious injuries he has suffered.

Motorcycles are the chosen vehicle for transportation for many motorists. It can be an efficient and enjoyable way to commute to work and travel, but it can be dangerous for riders when motorcycle accidents occur. The lack of a barrier between a rider and a larger vehicle offers little protection if a collision occurs. Sadly, one Tennessee family recently learned how dangerous a motorcycle crash can be following the death of their father.

Motorcycle accidents occur during "Ride to the Wall"

Every year, motorcyclists from Tennessee and across the country participate in an event called "Ride to the Wall." The event aims to honor fallen men and women from the Vietnam War and other wars as well as bringing awareness that many Americans are still listed as prisoners of war or missing in action. Sadly, one of the convoys headed to Washington experienced motorcycle accidents in Tennessee after a collision occurred with a tractor-trailer.

Riding a motorcycle can be dangerous. Often, the most danger a rider can face on the road is another vehicle. A collision with a larger vehicle can result in a motorcycle operator losing control of his or her bike and result in serious injuries, or worse. Recently, Tennessee authorities were called to separate fatal motorcycle accidents in one night.
