Bicycle Accidents

Bicycle Accident Attorney in Morristown

Serving the Injured in Tennessee

Bicycles are becoming an increasingly popular form of transportation and recreation. There are several benefits to riding a bicycle on city streets and there are some great disadvantages. Some of the benefits include:

  • Riding a bicycle allows you to avoid most, if not all, city traffic
  • Riding a bicycle benefits your cardiovascular health
  • Riding a bicycle can save money

However, riding a bicycle can also come with some major disadvantages:

  • Bicycles can be hard to see in a vehicle's rear-view mirror
  • Bicycles can be easily lost in a vehicle's blind-spot
  • Bicycles are more prone to accidents than larger vehicles
  • Due to their small size, bicycle accidents can be devastating to the rider

Throughout the United States it is estimated that 67,000 bicyclists visit the emergency room with head injuries every year.

In 2008, there were 716 fatal bicycle accidents in the U.S. - this comes out to one bicyclist being killed every six hours. It is vitally important that you are aware of your surroundings when riding a bicycle. A bicyclist, however, can only be so careful, there comes a point where the bicyclist is doing all that they can do and they are reliant upon the other drivers on the road to apply reasonable care to their driving, to obey traffic laws and thereby greatly decrease the risk of an accident.

Client Testimonials

We work within our clients time frames, guidelines & unique budgets
    A few years ago I was addicted to drugs. My addiction led me to steal and eventually I caught a few criminal charges. Troy Bowlin took my case. I spent time in jail for a little while as my bond was revoked. Troy immediately started working on getting me released and helping me through the release process. Troy was finally able to get me released to a 45-day rehab facility versus spending more time in jail. The rehab was a wonderful experience on my road to sobriety. Once I left rehab, the court appearances began. Troy was always present and on time. He would even be there early to discuss with me what would probably happen before court began. This was very comforting because when you are facing felony charges, court is very nerve-wracking. Troy was able to get me two years unsupervised probation. Based on the charges I had incurred this was short of a miracle. The two years gave me time to evaluate my life and become clean and sober. After the two years, Troy filed for judicial diversion. Once this was done, I have absolutely no charges on my record today. From where I started to where I ended up is all because of Troy's hard work. I find myself very lucky to have been blessed with this kind of caliber of lawyer. If it wasn't for Troy I would not be starting Nursing School in the fall. My future is bright now and my path is clear. If it was not for Troy I would not be as successful as I am now.
