Motorcycle Accidents in Georgia
Motorcycle accidents are known for being some of the most catastrophic and traumatic accidents on our roads in the state of Georgia. In 2017, it was reported that approximately 139 people were killed in Georgia motorcycle accidents. By 2020, this number rose to 179 people. Because motorcyclists have no protection from harm aside from a helmet when an accident happens, they are likely to become severely injured or even killed in an accident. If you have sustained serious injuries in a motorcycle crash that is not your fault, it is crucial that you speak with an attorney that you can trust.
