Personal Injury LAW
Motorcycle and Bicycle Accidents
Located in Memphis, TN
Motorcycle accidents and bicycle accidents cause serious and even fatal injuries regularly. Despite the safety measures and precautions that cyclists take, only one accident can change the the course of your life.
The Chiozza Law Firm works with those that have been affected by a motorcycle or bicycle accident. Our team provides legal assistance and strives to get you the compensation you deserve as a result of the accident injury.
Cyclist injuries often occur because of one major disadvantage – size. Motorcycles and bicycles can be difficult to spot or see, especially in blind spots. Intersections, right-of-ways, and lane changes all contribute to the cause of a cyclist accident.
Typically, a cyclist has little to no protection. Depending on state, a helmet is optional. In Tennessee, state law requires motorcyclists DO wear a helmet. Legally, bicyclists do not have to wear a helmet unless under age 16; we recommend you do for your own safety.
Outside of a helmet, protection is limited. This could result in some of the following injuries:
- Organ damage
- Limb loss
- Long-term disability
- Brain damage
If a motorcycle accident or bicycle accident has or could result in the one of the above injuries or other injury, you may be wondering how you can afford the payments, survive with the injuries, or maintain your job.
