Nashville motorcyclist severely injured in crash

We have covered many motorcycle accidents in previous posts. Although all personal injuries from car and pedestrians accidents can be serious, motorcyclists are especially vulnerable. Motorcyclists frequently suffer from severe injuries such as traumatic brain injuries because motorcycles afford very little protection against car accidents. Motorcyclists who fail to wear helmets are especially vulnerable to brain injuries.

A young Nashville man was recently hospitalized because of a motorcycle accident. The Tennessean reports that the 25-year-old motorcyclist was left in critical condition at Vanderbilt University Medical Center due to injuries he sustained in the south Nashville accident over Memorial Day weekend.

The accident occurred at approximately 5:15 p.m. last Sunday. A 21-year-old man from Antioch was driving a GMC truck on McCall Street in south Nashville. The Antioch man pulled in front of the motorcycle to enter a residence and failed to yield according to authorities who were actively investigating the case. Although the motorcyclist was critically injured, the truck driver and his passenger were unharmed.

The 21-year-old truck driver will likely face a personal injury lawsuit from the motorcyclist or his family if the police investigation reveals that the truck driver wrongfully caused the accident with the motorcycle. A personal injury lawsuit is a way for car and motorcycle accident victims to receive compensation for their personal injuries and hold negligent drivers responsible for their actions. Family members of individuals who die in motorcycle accidents may also file wrongful death claims depending on the facts and circumstances of a particular case.
