Bicycling is one of the most popular forms of transportation and recreation in Tennessee, and the number of bicyclists has grown considerably in the few decades. However, despite the increased marketing that encourages drivers to "share the road," many motorists are still unaware of bikers, and are capable of inflicting serious injury or death with their vehicles
If you suffered serious injuries in a bicycle accident after you were hit by a car, an experienced Morristown personal injury attorney can help you receive the compensation you need. At The Terry Law Firm, we represent accident victims in Morristown, Hamblen County, Greene County, Hawkins County, and throughout East Tennessee. Our entire practice is devoted to helping people who suffered life-altering injuries because of the negligence of another party.
In the past, bicycle accidents were most common among children and young adults — victims who were hit on residential roads close to their homes. Now, however, the average age of bike accident victims is 43. People who ride their bikes to work, train for road races or enjoy leisurely rides are forced to watch for drivers who are likely not watching for them.
Sadly, because of the size difference between cars and bikes, and because of the minimal protection bikers have when they are involved in accidents, bikers often suffer serious injuries.
Whether you were injured by a driver who didn't look for you before turning left or driving through an intersection, a driver who didn't leave enough space when passing you, or a driver who opened his or her door in front you, we can help. At our firm, the initial consultation is always free.
Our Morristown personal injury lawyers give all clients the personal attention and counsel they deserve, and we always take the time to ensure your needs are met. Call us at (423) 536-6220 today!
