Questions about Tennessee Motorcycle Accidents
If you are a motorcycle rider who has been injured in a Tennessee motorcycle accident, you are probably wondering about many different aspects of your recovery--including how to pay (or who will pay) for all the damage that you suffered.
At the Hartsoe Law Firm, we would be glad to discuss your particular situation with you and answer questions such as
- who will determine who was at fault in the accident?
- should I talk to the insurance adjuster who has contacted me?
- if both I and the other driver or drivers were partly at fault, can I still pursue compensation?
- who will pay for my medical bills?
- who will pay for the damage to my motorcycle?
- if my injuries keep me from returning to work for a while, can I get compensation for my lost wages?
- how long will it be before I receive any compensation?
- do I have a limited time within which to file a claim, or can I wait?
- should I accept a settlement offer from an insurance company?
- if an insurance company has made me a settlement offer, how does that offer compare to settlements or awards in similar cases?
- how much might my case be "worth"?
You should be aware that Tennessee does have a statute of limitations--in other words a law that cuts off the time period during which you can pursue compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and more. In addition, in Tennessee you can seek compensation even in a situation where you may have been partly at fault in causing the accident.
If you are related to a rider who lost his or her life in a Tennessee motorcycle accident, you will have a different set of questions. However, you, too, would have suffered very real damage, and you, too, will be facing financial consequences triggered by that loss.
