Helping the Victims of Motorcycle Accidents in Georgia
With its diverse highway scenery, from mountains to farmland to coasts, it’s no wonder that Georgia falls within the top 20 states in the United States in the number of registered motorcycles. Unfortunately, with over 200,000 registered bikes, some accidents are bound to happen. Though riding a motorcycle may be statistically safer than driving a car, those who endure motorcycle accidents are more likely to be profoundly injured.
While spending a nice warm day cruising around on a motorcycle might seem like an enjoyable way to spend some free time, the reality is that sometimes those fun outings may end in disaster.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), most motorcycle accidents are likely to happen during the day in an urban setting, without inclement weather. A majority of these accidents take place on a major roadway. Even though motorcycle accidents only represent a small number of accidents that take place every year, they are 27 times more likely to result in a fatality than a wreck involving two passenger vehicles.
Whether deadly or not, motorcycle accidents are likely to have steep costs. From property damage to medical bills, you’ll have expenses everywhere you turn. To ensure that you will be getting the maximum compensation available to you from the insurance companies, hiring a motorcycle accident attorney in Georgia is an excellent first step. Your experienced attorney will be able to inform you of all your legal rights and calculate how much compensation you’re entitled to.
Our dedicated Georgia attorneys are passionate about helping those who have been victims of any kind of accident, and we can come to you if that’s what you need. We care deeply for the residents of the Peach State. We aim to do everything within our power to make sure they are educated about their rights and are provided with legal support for their injury claims.
What Are The Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents?
Like car accidents, there are many reasons that a motorcycle accident may occur. However, unlike minor car accidents, there is no such thing as a minor motorcycle accident. Motorcyclists are at a disadvantage on the road surrounded by commercial and passenger vehicles. Those other drivers are offered some protection by the structure of their vehicle, while a motorcyclist is offered none by their bike.
Left-Hand Turns — About a third of all motorcycle accidents occur when a driver is making a left-hand turn and turns into the path of a motorcycle coming along the opposite lane. Other vehicles typically have a difficult time seeing motorcycles on the road, which puts them at an increased risk of being involved in an accident.
Rear-end Accidents — A rear-end collision between two four-wheeled vehicles at moderate speeds is considered a “fender bender.” Still, when a vehicle hits the rear of a motorcycle, it can result in a serious accident. The rider could get flung from the motorcycle, or they could become trapped under the tires of the colliding car.
Sudden Lane Changes — Motorcycles are more difficult to see from the cabin of a typical passenger vehicle. Their smaller size means they can get swallowed in a blind spot, and if a passenger vehicle driver fails to look carefully, they can change lanes directly on top of a two-wheeled vehicle.
Debris or Loose Gravel — Any sort of road irregularity can cause a motorcycle to lose traction, balance, or both. This includes loose dirt or gravel on the road and chunks of concrete or other debris. In cases where the road obstruction was left because of negligence, the injured motorcyclist may file a claim against the appropriate property owner or highway agency.
Driving While Impaired — About 43% of motorcycle accidents occur when the driver is drinking or otherwise impaired. Driving a motorcycle requires more skill and concentration than driving another type of vehicle, and as such, should not be utilized if the driver is impaired in any way.
Driving in Inclement Weather — Motorcycles are no exception when it comes to vehicles needing to change their driving patterns during bad weather. Rain and other precipitation can make roads slippery and cause the braking time to increase. Motorcycles also have to worry about how traction and tire pressure change on the road during sudden shifts in weather.
What Are the Common Injuries From Motorcycle Accidents?
Motorcycle accidents can be especially dangerous, as motorcyclists have very little protection between themselves and another vehicle or between themselves and the road. Here are some common injuries are often seen from motorcycle accidents:
Head and Brain Injuries
Spinal Cord Injuries
It is important to remember that if you’ve been involved in an accident, even if you consider your accident to have been minor, you seek medical treatment as soon as you possibly can. Even if you feel you haven’t been injured, you still need to get checked out by a medical professional. Some injuries have a delayed onset of symptoms, and some injuries can only be diagnosed and treated by a doctor.
Seeing a doctor and having your injuries noted immediately after the wreck is the only way to conclusively prove that your injuries occurred because of the accident. Without this documentation, insurance companies may try to argue that your injury was due to a pre-existing condition and will try to avoid paying for the treatment of that injury.

Can I Trust the Insurance Company for Fair Compensation?
Though many advertisements for insurance companies would have you believe differently, ultimately, insurance companies are businesses. And as businesses, they are worried about one thing: their bottom line. These for-profit companies want you to think that they are there to help you when things go wrong, but their goal for all claims is to process them as quickly and for the least amount of money possible.
If you or a loved one has been in a motorcycle accident, the chances are that you have to deal with much more than damage to your motorcycle. You likely have some medical bills and may have to miss work due to your injuries. Yet, your bills will keep accumulating. This can be a very stressful time, and insurance companies are likely to capitalize on that, offering you quick and easy ways to file a claim. While it may be convenient to fill out a short form and receive compensation, insurance companies will rarely offer you enough to take care of all of your financial needs.
This is where having an experienced attorney can really be a benefit for you. Not only can we help facilitate a conversation with the insurance companies, leaving you more time to concentrate on healing from your accident, we will also fight any low-ball offers so that you can receive the maximum compensation available to you. We will be with you every step of the way, providing moral as well as legal support.
