Motorcycle Accidents in Georgia
Motorcycle accidents are some of the most catastrophic accidents on our roads. This is due to the fact that motorcyclists are known for being incredibly vulnerable and are at risk for serious results in the midst of an accident. In one year’s time, motorcyclists account for approximately 14% of traffic-related fatalities. Losing a loved one due to an accident can have a huge and lasting impact on your life. This is the reality for hundreds of families every year in the state of Georgia. In one year’s time, over 155 people are killed in these horrific accidents due to the negligence of others. Most motorcycle accidents can be prevented when drivers pay close attention to the roads around them. If you have suffered losses due to one of these accidents, it is important that you have a variety of options.
Motorcycle accidents lead to many serious injuries including broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and even death. This risk increases when drivers are not wearing helmets. When a motorcyclist is thrown from their vehicle or their motorcycle strikes the road while they are still on it, serious results can occur in the blink of an eye.
