If you drive the streets of metropolitan Atlanta on a motorcycle, no one has to warn you that a motorcycle accident is waiting just around the corner. Motorcyclists know that there are inherent risks with driving or riding a bike. A motorcycle offers little, if any, protection in the event of a collision. That risk of course does not mean that car drivers are free to act without regard for the safety of motorcyclists. Car and truck drivers routinely neglect their responsibility to watch out for bikers on Georgia roads. This negligence in turn causes serious and sometimes fatal motorcycle accidents. If an accident occurs, you should contact an experienced attorney to discuss your options.
Having grown up in metropolitan Atlanta, Mr. Maddox has witnessed the rise in bike accidents as the result of population growth, never ending road construction courtesy of the Georgia DOT, intoxicated drivers, and occasionally a biker who is unfamiliar with his own bike.
The tragedy of a motorcycle accident in Georgia is often devastating damages for both the victim and his or her family. Motorcycle injuries are often life-threatening or permanent. A personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit following a motorcycle accident will not undo the harm caused, but it may provide greater financial security and stability to pay for long-term care.
