What will a motorcycle accident attorneys do to get your case started
Make arrangements to interview witnesses, take photographs of all visible injury, property damage (bike and personal clothing) and the accident scene. If necessary, we will retain an accident reconstruction engineer or other expert. We will attempt to contact the insurance companies and see if they will provide us with coverage information. However, be aware that in most cases in Tennessee the insurance company does not have to disclose that information. We will attempt to settle your case without the need to go to court as trials are normally set several months or even years out from when the injury occurred, but if your case is not settled then we will seek the maximum amount possible for you.

Yes. Insurance Companies can make even a small case difficult for a person. If the injury is moderate to severe then an attorney is usually necessary because the average person doesn’t know how to properly evaluate their claim and needs help to achieve the best result. Also the insurance company has their lawyers working for them and a Tennessee motorcycle accident attorney can level the playing field.
