Bicycle Accidents in Georgia
In 2009, it was reported that 549 individuals in Georgia were hospitalized in bicycle accidents due to serious accidents involving motor vehicles. These accidents tend to be incredibly catastrophic due to the fact that bicyclists have few protections from harm. They are some of the most vulnerable parties on our roads. If you have been injured in a bicycle accident, you should always speak with a personal injury attorney.
