Georgia Motorcycle Accidents Attorneys
The prevalence of motorcycle accidents seems to be increasing, despite the fact that the motorcyclists themselves are becoming much more vigilant on the road and better utilizing safety gear. The unfortunate fact is that these accidents occur because of motorist negligence.
If you have been the victim of a motorcycle accident that is the fault of someone else, you have most likely suffered very severe injuries. Motorcycles offer passengers no protection in an accident and this is why so many of these accidents are fatal, resulting in families seeking out the assistance of a Georgia personal injury attorney to help them hold the responsible party accountable.
Motorcycle accidents occur for a number of reasons. They include:
- Getting caught behind a large vehicle, which means other drivers may not be able to see you. This is common when riding behind a van or a semi-truck. When you appear, they do not expect you to appear and they do not stop in time.
- Pot holes and other issues on the road can be deadly. They are difficult enough for motorists in cars, let alone someone on a motorcycle. Sometimes they can be avoided and other times they cannot. It is the responsibility of the municipality to ensure these hazards are dealt with.
- Many motorcyclists become victims of those that turn in front of them, cutting them off. This can result in the motorcyclist hitting the vehicle and being ejected from the motorcycle in most cases.
- If in heavy traffic, it is possible to not be seen. The heavy traffic makes a motorcyclist less obvious to motor vehicle drivers and this is very dangerous, as some drivers do not check their blind spots very well in such conditions due to being in a very tedious position. This can result in cutting off the cyclist or colliding with them when changing lanes.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident or you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of another driver you may be entitled to compensation. To find out more about how Veal and Lamar, LLC can help you, call 678.369.1804 to schedule a free consultation.
