Bicycle Accidents in Georgia
Children are some of the most at-risk parties involved in bicycle accidents since they are not always aware of the dangers on our roads as adults are. Bicycle accidents are almost always injurious or fatal in nature due to the fact that they involve some of the most at-risk parties on our roads. In one recent year’s time in Georgia, it is estimated that approximately 20 people lost their lives in bicycle accidents due to the reckless acts of others. If you have suffered enormous damages due to a bicycle accident, you should have a dedicated attorney on your side.
Bicyclists have few protections from harm, which means that these accidents are likely to lead to serious results. Some of the most life-altering injuries that stem from these collisions include road rash, spinal cord injuries, fractures, organ damage, paralysis, and more. These injuries tend to land victims in the hospital and cause them to miss out on time at work, as well as impact many other aspects of their lives.
