Causes of Motorcycle Collisions Resulting in Injury

Motorcycle accidents are statistically more dangerous than a similar crash involving a passenger vehicle, for obvious reasons. With little to no protection for the human body, while riding a motorcycle, cyclists frequently suffer life-altering injuries. Unfortunately, the majority of motorcycle accidents occur as the result of troublingly, common sets of circumstances.

Collisions with Other Drivers

Dangerous lane changes, impairment from drugs or alcohol, distracted driving, and bad judgment are the most common causes responsible for the majority of motorcycle collisions. Up to 70% of motorcycle crashes occur when another vehicle violates the motorcyclist’s right-of-way. In Georgia, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is typically two years from the date of the collision. If your injury is the result of actions taken by another driver, it is important to get legal advice as quickly as possible to begin your claim.

Road Conditions & Equipment Failures

Even the best products can fail. If your motorcycle or safety equipment was defective in manufacture or design, we can bring those failures to light. Mechanical flaws and poorly designed safety features or equipment can allow you to pursue the manufacturer or designer of those products for compensation. In some cases, road conditions can be a factor in the crash. If road maintenance, design, lighting, or other features are a contributing factor, we can investigate whether negligent engineering or city/governmental maintenance programs are at fault.

Insurance Claims & Compensation for Damages

Although the law requires you to have insurance as a motorcyclist, actually claiming the benefits if you are injured can be an arduous and frustrating process. Insurers do all they can to avoid payouts whenever possible, so having an experienced motorcycle lawyer on your side who can help navigate the claims process is key. When you face this uphill battle, we will be there to ensure that no insurance company can bully you out of the full compensation you deserve.
