Bicycle Accidents in Georgia
Bicyclists are some of the most at-risk parties on our roads in the state of Georgia. This is due to the fact that they have no protection from harm in the event of an accident. In one recent year’s time in the state of Georgia, over 20 people were killed and many others were injured in bicycle accidents.

These injuries are sometimes so severe and life-altering that they land victims in the hospital and cause them to miss out on time in the workplace.
