Motorcyclists in Tennessee often face more hardships than others on the road due to the small size of their vehicles. Those who get into accidents will fortunately have Pryor, Priest & Harber to lean on.
Motorcyclists are often times the victim of other drivers and their inability to “share the road”. What is this, exactly? It’s the act of being mindful while driving, and not encroaching into the space of other drivers, even if their vehicle is much smaller than your own.
If you are a victim of a driver not sharing the road, you can be put into many compromising situations. A few examples include being pushed into the shoulder or another lane of traffic, or being hit by the vehicle in question because they don’t notice or see you. If your path has ever been obstructed by a vehicle or if you have ever needed to change lanes to avoid being hit, you have experienced a driver not sharing the road.
In most cases, a driver is not intentionally trying to behave in this way. Unfortunately, however, even accidental actions can lead to hogging the road and it may result in dangerous situations for you, the motorcyclist.
The aggressive driving behavior of other vehicles can spell immediate danger for you. Fortunately, there are things you can do to get the compensation you deserve if you have been hurt because of another driver’s inability to share the road with you.
