Fighting For The Rights Of Georgia’s Injured For Decades

Motorcycle accidents continue to happen with alarming regularity

by | May 3, 2019 | motorcycle accidents

It might seem as if there are a significant number of stories about motorcycle accidents in Marietta and the surrounding areas in Georgia. That is no coincidence. There has been a spate of these crashes in recent months and people are being seriously injured and losing their lives because of it. Understanding why this seems to be the case is the responsibility of legislators and law enforcement. For those who are injured in a motorcycle crash, the cause is secondary to getting proper care and returning to full health. With the costs associated with such a crash, it is also wise to think about having legal advice to pursue compensation in a lawsuit.

A motorcyclist was seriously injured when his bike collided with a car. The accident happened in the mid-morning at around 10:30 a.m. The rider, 39, was on a 2015 Harley-Davidson. He stopped at a stop sign and continued when a 2007 Ford Crown Victoria that was heading north went into the rider’s path. The bike hit the front of the vehicle on its left side. The rider was taken to the hospital with injuries that were said to be life-threatening. The investigation into the accident is ongoing.

Head injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, lost limbs – all can result from a motorcycle accident. While riders will take great care to be safe and adhere to the law, not all drivers of passenger vehicles and trucks do the same. They might lose sight of a motorcycle, be distracted while they are driving, speed, or behave recklessly. When there is a collision between a car and a motorcycle, the rider inevitably gets the worst end of it. Considering all the problems that arise in the aftermath, it is imperative to consider whether a lawsuit is necessary to recover compensation.

With the medical expenses, lost wages, long-term damage and more, the rider in this case – if he survives – must think about the future and plan for a legal filing. If he is unable to recover, the family should consider their options and contact a legal team for help with a wrongful death case. Since motorcycle accidents require expertise and experience for the case, calling a qualified law firm is vital.
