Can I File a Lawsuit After a Bicycle Accident in TN?

Your ability to take legal action after being involved in a bicycle accident depends on the specific facts of your case. In order to prevail in civil claims, Plaintiffs must prove:

  1. The defendant owed the plaintiff a legal duty. This may be a driver’s duty to safely operate their vehicle and share the road with bicyclists, or a property owner’s duty to address potential hazards.
  2. The defendant breached their duty of care. A defendant’s failure to meet their legal obligation often arises from negligence, though it may also stem from a wrongful act.
  3. The defendant’s negligence caused injury. Proving causation is one of the most important steps in an injury claim, and requires evidence that a defendant’s conduct was more likely than not the cause of a victim’s injuries.
  4. The plaintiff suffered actual damages. Plaintiffs will need to prove they suffered actual damages, including injuries and their resulting economic and non-economic damages.

Generally, you may have the right to file a personal injury claim after a bicycle accident if another person or entity is to blame. While our team at Kinnard Law is available to review your case and explain whether you may have grounds for legal action, there are some examples that can help you understand what types of cases may have merit. For example, injured bicyclists may file claims against:

  • A negligent motorist who struck them after to failing to yield at an intersection.
  • A truck driver or trucking company that violated regulations involving hours-of-service and driver fatigue.
  • A manufacturer, distributor, and / or retailer responsible for a defective product.
  • A rideshare service, if the accident was caused by an Uber or Lyft driver using the app at the time.
  • A property owner, if there were hazardous conditions on their premises which caused a rider to fall, swerve, or otherwise suffer injury in an accident.

What Compensation Can I Recover for a Bike Accident?

The monetary compensation you can recover after a bicycle accident is also dependent on the facts of your case. Generally, victims are entitled to a recovery of the economic and non-economic damages resulting from their injuries, which can include:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Medications, medical devices, and rehabilitation
  • Lost income and lost future earnings
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering

Our team works closely with clients to understand their losses, and consults with medical and financial experts to determine whether they may have future needs to be accounted for when seeking a settlement or jury award.
