Fatal Tennessee car accident closes roadway

Any kind of car and motorcycle accident can result in injuries or worse for those involved. However, when there are several vehicles involved, there may be a greater risk of injury for anyone who is caught up in the car accident. A recent multi-vehicle car accident on a Tennessee roadway resulted in one individual losing his life and a road closure that lasted for several hours.

The accident began as a woman was driving eastbound and she slowed down for stopped traffic ahead of her. A motorcycle was coming up behind her and hit the back of her car. Then, a pickup truck came up behind them and hit the motorcycle.

This last collision sent the motorcyclist into oncoming traffic. Another pickup truck was coming in the opposite lane and that truck hit the motorcyclist. The motorcyclist died from the injuries he received in the accident even though he was reported to have been wearing a motorcycle helmet. Police have reported that no one was cited for their role in the car accident.

While no one faced any kind of criminal charges related to the afternoon car accident, the family of the motorcyclist who died may be able to pursue civil action in a Tennessee court. Whenever a fatal accident occurs, a successfully litigated civil complaint of wrongful death may help those left behind deal with the aftermath of a car accident. For families left behind, a successful civil suit can help them garner monetary damages that may help them deal with medical bills, lost wages or funeral expenses.
