You Pay Zero Unless We Win!

Get The Help You Need After A Motorcycle Accident

Following a motorcycle accident in the metro Atlanta area, your first call should be to a knowledgeable and experienced Atlanta motorcycle accident lawyer.

If you've been involved in a motorcycle accident, you know how serious they can be. The injuries sustained in a motorcycle collision are often much more severe than those from a car accident.

Motorcycle operators and passengers are vulnerable to serious injury or death in any collision, as they simply do not have seatbelts, metal enclosures, airbags, and other protection that a vehicle provides. Not only that, but the costs of medical treatment, lost wages, repairs, and other damages can be astronomical.

Top Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle crashes have many different causes and influencing factors. A high number of accidents involve a vehicle turning left, and a motorcyclist going straight. The vehicle driver may misjudge the approaching motorcycle rider's speed, or more commonly, not see them at all.

This is the most dangerous vehicle maneuver on the road, and motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to catastrophic injury or wrongful death. The faster the motorcycle is traveling, the less time the motorcyclist has to react, and the higher chance of an accident resulting in a fatality.

distracted-driving-01

Some of the common causes of motorcycle accidents in Georgia include:

  • Failure of motor vehicle drivers to see or look for motorcycles
  • Distracted motorists
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Speeding
  • Poor weather conditions
  • Inexperienced motorcycle operation
  • Road defects
  • Debris/roadkill in a motorcycle's path
  • Defective motorcycle parts

Fully investigating and correctly identifying the cause of an accident is necessary to identify who may be liable. The Graham Firm works with top investigators, reconstructionists, and medical experts to understand what happened and why. Because evidence can be repaired, destroyed, or washed away in the days and hours following an accident, it is advisable to contact a lawyer as soon as possible.

Most Common Injuries From A Motorcycle Accident

When a motorcycle crash happens, the injuries can be catastrophic. A motorcyclist is more vulnerable to being seriously injured or killed than someone in a car because they have less protection. Wearing a DOT-approved helmet and proper riding gear can help protect you from some injuries, but not all.

Some of the most common injuries our clients have suffered in motorcycle accidents include:

  • Head injuries, including traumatic brain injury(TBI), and concussions
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Broken/fractured bones
  • Road rash injuries
  • Blunt force injuries

What to Do If You Are Involved In A Motorcycle Collision

The aftermath of a crash can be chaotic and stressful. Following a motorcycle crash, take the following steps:

  • Preserve evidence at the crash scene if possible. Take videos and photos - or ask someone to help you. Request that a police report is taken.
  • Get medical treatment immediately. Do not delay, or wait to see if you feel better the next day. Complete any requested imaging like X-rays, CT Scans, or MRIs. Remember, your record of medical treatment is an important part of your claim.
  • Get contact information and insurance information. Gather information for all other parties involved in a crash, as well as witnesses at the scene.
  • Contact a lawyer as soon as possible. Your lawyer can give you additional advice on actions to take, and not to take, following your collision.

You will also have to report your accident to your insurance company, as per the terms of your policy. However, you should only provide facts about the accident, and not speculate on causation or what happened.

How An Experienced Atlanta Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Can Help You

For insurance companies, accident claims are simply business transactions. At The Graham Firm, our clients are real people, not case numbers. When injuries take away your ability to work, go to school, and simply enjoy everyday activities, the compensation you receive is critical. Do not accept any compensation offer from an insurance claims representative or adjustor without first speaking with a personal injury lawyer.

The Graham Firm advocates for victims of motorcycle accidents and fights for maximum, full, and fair compensation. If an insurance company will not offer a reasonable settlement within a reasonable amount of time, we will not hesitate to bring a motorcycle accident case to trial before a judge or jury.

After a motorcycle accident in Fulton County or DeKalb County, call The Graham Firm to schedule a free consultation with an Atlanta motorcycle accident lawyer to see if we can help.

Atlanta Motorcycle Accident FAQs

There are a few things you can do to find the best Atlanta motorcycle accident lawyer for your case. Start by asking friends and family if they know any lawyers who have experience with motorcycle accidents. You can also search online for Atlanta motorcycle accident lawyers. Finally, look for a lawyer that has a proven history of success in cases similar to yours. Don't accept less, or be subject to insurance companies' denial and delay tactics.

In general, you have two years from the date of your Atlanta motorcycle accident to file a personal injury claim. This is known as the "statute of limitations." However, there are a few exceptions to this rule., so it's important to speak with an experienced accident injury attorney as soon as possible after your accident.

If you've been injured in a motorcycle accident, you may be wondering if you need to hire a lawyer. The answer is maybe. If your injuries are minor and you don't think you'll need to miss work or incur significant medical bills, you may not need a lawyer.

However, if your injuries are more serious, you may want to consider hiring a lawyer to help you with your claim. An experienced motorcycle accident lawyer can help you understand your rights and options and can fight to help you get compensated for your injuries.

The cost of a motorcycle accident lawyer will vary depending on the severity of your injuries, the facts of your case, and the lawyer's experience. Many motorcycle accident attorneys work on a contingency basis, which means you won't have to pay anything upfront. Instead, the lawyer will take a percentage of your settlement or verdict as payment.

Fault can be determined in several different ways, and may or may not be revealed in a motorcycle accident police report. In some cases, the fault is obvious, such as if the driver of a vehicle was under the influence of alcohol. The fault may also be admitted in cases when a driver was distracted and took their eyes off the road.

In other situations, it is less clear how a motorcycle accident occurred. Sometimes, video evidence is available - either from nearby businesses, residences, or from the motorcycle operator themself. Many motorcycle riders document all their rides with a continuously looping GoPro to record and document any accidents or unusual encounters.
