Moped Accidents in Georgia
Moped and motorcycle accidents are some of the most severe accidents on our roads. This is due to the fact that mopeds offer very little protection to drivers, which means that they are at risk for significant harm when involved in an accident. Approximately 10% of these accidents involved motorcycles and mopeds in one recent year. If you have been harmed as a result of a collision involving a negligent driver, it is important that you speak with an accident attorney who has your best interests in mind.
Moped riders are some of the most vulnerable parties on our roads. Being injured in one of these accidents can leave you feeling helpless and alone. Some of the most traumatic but common injuries that stem from these accidents include TBIs, spinal cord injuries, organ damage, road rash, and more. These injuries will typically lead to hospitalization and cause a victim to miss out on time at work. If you have been injured and wonder where you can turn, you should always speak with a personal injury attorney who has handled these claims in the past.
