Atlanta Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Motorcycle accidents account for over 35 percent more deaths than any other type of vehicle accident. The reason for this high mortality rate is because motorcycle drivers have little in the way of a shield between their bodies, the pavement and other vehicles. The end result is often serious, even catastrophic, injuries to the motorcyclist. Despite this, motorcycles are ubiquitous on Georgia’s many scenic roads and highways. Unfortunately, motorcycle crashes are common as well. Our firm of professional motorcycle accident lawyers can help fight for the compensation you deserve after suffering from injuries due to a motorcycle wreck.
Many Types Of Motorcycle Accidents
There are a variety of causes of motorcycle accidents. Typically another driver will not see the motorcycle, and hits it when changing lanes or turning in an intersection. Slippery road conditions are especially hazardous to two-wheeled vehicles. A motorcycle can slip on ice, snow, water or oil, and skid into oncoming traffic or a power pole. Other reasons that a motorcycle may end up in an accident include: rear-end crashes with other vehicles, limited visibility on city streets or on the highway, road debris and malfunctioning of motorcycle parts.
Motorcycle wrecks can cause devastating and long-term injuries to riders, such as:
- road rash
- broken bones
- facial fractures and cuts
- loss of limb
- nerve and muscle damage to extremities
- spinal cord injuries
- traumatic brain injuries
