Bicycle Accidents in Georgia
Bicycle accidents are some of the most severe accidents that occur on our roads. This is due to the fact that bicyclists have few protections from harm and can easily become injured in accidents involving larger vehicles. In just one recent year’s time, 20 people were killed and many more were injured in accidents due to the negligence of others. When drivers are not paying close attention to the roads around them, a bicycle accident can occur in the blink of an eye. This is especially true for accidents involving children.
Georgia bicycle accidents are known for being entirely damaging. Those who have been injured in these accidents may wonder what options they have for recovery. Being injured in a bicycle accident can leave you with many questions. What types of evidence will you need to prove your claim? Will you have to meet a statute of limitations when it comes to your case? Will your claim make it to trial? These are questions that you may have that only a skilled attorney will be able to answer. It is imperative that you immediately speak with a personal injury attorney in Georgia to find out what options you have.
