Fighting For The Rights Of Georgia’s Injured For Decades

Motorcycle accidents can lead to passenger injuries and death

by | Apr 10, 2019 | motorcycle accidents

Throughout Georgia, motorcycles are a common sight. Motorcycles and cars must share the road and keep a close watch on each other to avoid accidents. While most drivers do what they can to maintain safety, some accidents are unavoidable. This is true even for experienced riders. Since motor vehicles might turn into a rider’s path, fail to yield or simply not pay attention, there can be accidents. When an accident leads to injuries or fatalities, calling for legal advice is a key aspect to a lawsuit.

An accident between a Jeep and a motorcycle led to the passenger on the bike suffering fatal injuries. The investigation states that the Jeep, driven by a 17-year-old, made a left turn and collided with the motorcycle. The female passenger on the motorcycle was killed. Her husband was operating the bike and was said to be in stable condition at the hospital. The teen driving the Jeep was not hurt.

Riding a motorcycle is an enjoyable activity for a lot of people. Most do it with caution and care. However, there are natural dangers when riding a motorcycle, as accidents can happen. For help with all the issues that arise after a motorcycle crash, legal help is critical.

If a loved one is killed in a motorcycle crash, it is important for the family to consider a lawsuit. The family may be confronted with funeral expenses, medical costs, and lost income. It is important that the family left behind discuss their case with a law firm that understands motorcycle accidents.
