Atlanta Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
One of the biggest problems with motorcycles is they offer no protection for riders. While the state of Georgia requires all bikers and their passengers to wear helmets, this safety gear offers little protection when a motorcycle and a larger vehicle collide.
Since 2004, over 4,000 people have died each year in motorcycle accidents. Those who survive are often left with serious injuries and sometimes permanent disabilities.
Even more heartbreaking, motorcycle accident victims often find it difficult to recover financial compensation. Dealing with insurance carriers and the claims process can be highly stressful. Often, injured motorcyclists are denied.
If you or a loved one have been involved in a serious motorcycle accident caused by another driver’s negligence, it is time to hold the at-fault party accountable.

Types of Motorcycle Accident Cases we handle
When Should You File a Motorcycle Claim?
Motorcycle accidents leave behind serious devastation. From death to permanent injuries, these accidents cause great mental anguish that is often difficult to overcome.
The mounting losses can have a serious impact on a person’s health and wellbeing. Motorcycle accidents particularly take a toll on a victim’s finances.
If you were living paycheck to paycheck before your accident, the aftermath can be even more devastating, which is why we want to help you recover financial compensation for your damages.
What Damages Can You Recover After a Motorcycle Accident?
Future medical costs
Loss of limb
Severe brain trauma
Pain and suffering
Filing a motorcycle accident claim is the first step in helping accident victims receive compensation. A claim can be filed by the injured victim or a family member, if the accident resulted in the victim’s death.
Losing a loved one creates an unfillable hole in a person’s life, especially if the accident could have been avoided. This devastating experience allows loved ones to file a wrongful death claim.
To seek compensation for a wrongful death claim, you will need an experienced attorney who will hold the insurance carrier accountable, along with any other at-fault parties.
What Must Be Proven in a Motorcycle Wrongful Death Claim?
If your loved one was killed in a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to receive financial compensation if you can prove the following.
The at-fault driver was negligent and breached the duty of care to the victim.
The negligence of the at-fault driver directly caused the motorcycle accident.
The death of the victim resulted in measurable damages, including hospital bills and burial costs.
How Can You Hold the Other Driver Responsible?
Holding the other driver responsible for your accident is not always easy. Insurance companies, and even the court systems, can be prejudiced against motorcyclists. It is not fair that a few aggressive thrill-seekers cause safe bikers to be labeled in such a way.
In the state of Georgia, you must prove the other driver exhibited reckless behavior or negligence. The other motorist may be held at fault if any of the following are true.
Texting while driving
Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
Speeding or aggressive driving
Failing to follow the rules of the road
Driving an unsafe vehicle
Common Injuries From Motorcycle Accidents
Traumatic Brain Injury
Loss of limbs
Spinal cord injuries
