What Causes Motorcycle Accidents?
Motorcycles are at a disadvantage when it comes to vehicle safety. They lack the protection of a large, sturdy frame and a heavy, reinforced body. This makes them more susceptible to harm in all kinds of collisions, even the most minor ones.
The most common cause of motorcycle accidents is driver negligence. Motorists who fail to yield the right of way, who fail to look in their blind spots, or who are otherwise unaware of nearby motorcycles are responsible for the majority of motorcycle accidents.
Other common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Defective motorcycle parts
- Defective motorcycle design
- Drowsy driving
- Rear-end collisions
- Head-on collisions
- and more
Georgia's Motorcycle Laws
Motorcycle accidents can be more complex than other types of car accidents. This is because Georgia has specific laws that apply to motorcycles. The state's motorcycle laws are designed to protect bikers, but they can also complicate matters after an accident.
In a motorcycle accident case, it is important to understand Georgia's motorcycle laws and how they apply to your situation. For example, Georgia requires all motorcyclists to wear helmets.
If you were not wearing a helmet at the time of your accident, you might not be eligible to file a claim. Georgia also requires motorcyclists to follow the same traffic laws as motorists. If you were speeding at the time of your accident, you might not be able to file a claim.
If you were wearing a helmet and following the rules of the road at the time of your motorcycle accident, our firm can help you build a strong case.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Motorcycle accidents can result in catastrophic injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Such injuries can have a lasting impact on your ability to work, on your quality of life, and on your long-term financial security. When you are injured in a motorcycle accident, you might face a long and difficult recovery process. You might also require significant medical care, which can quickly add up to thousands of dollars.
In these situations, you need an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you fight for the compensation you deserve to make a fresh start.
