Car accidents with motorcycles in Tennessee often prove fatal

Car accidents in Tennessee are often considered an unfortunate fact of life -- they are bound to happen sooner or later. When car accidents involve two automobiles, the people involved are often able to walk away, as their vehicles have taken the brunt of the impact. However, as is the case with a recent car accident, when the collision involves an automobile and a motorcycle, the outcome can be quite different.

The accident in question occurred during an evening in late May in Maryville, Tennessee. Four motorcycles were headed southbound on a parkway when an SUV left its turn lane, drove into oncoming traffic, and hit the four motorcycles. The 31-year-old driver of the SUV and her 3-year-old passenger were injured and taken to a local medical center.

According to the authorities, two of the motorcycle riders, a married couple riding the same motorcycle, were killed. Three other motorcyclists and their passengers were also injured in the collision. They were all wearing helmets and were taken to another local medical center.

Car accidents in Tennessee can have serious effects on a person for a long time. In this case, not only were the victim's motorcycles damaged, if not destroyed, the victims might have to live with the medical bills incurred from the injuries sustained in the accident for years or decades to come. The victims of this tragic car accident might find it wise to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer who can not only answer some of the questions they might have, but also offer a plan of recourse that might lead to recovering damages incurred by the results of this senseless tragedy.
