Bicycle Accidents in Georgia
Bicycle accidents do not happen nearly as commonly as other accidents on our roads in Georgia. However, when they do occur, they tend to lead to some of the most severe results. This is due to the fact that bicyclists have no protection from harm in the event of an accident with any other type of vehicle. In 2019, it was reported that approximately 21 bicyclists were killed in fatal accidents throughout Georgia and many others were injured. There is huge importance when it comes to moving forward with a claim against a negligent party. If you have been hurt in a bicycle crash, you should speak with an attorney that you can trust.
The aftermath of a bicycle accident can be a difficult thing to face. This is especially true if you have sustained serious injuries. Some of these injuries include the following:
- Road rash
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Organ damage
These injuries are typically so severe that they land victims in the hospital and cause them to miss out on time at work. When your daily life is impacted by a bicycle accident, you may wonder where you can turn. It is crucial that you speak with a Doraville personal injury attorney that you can trust in your time of need.
