FAQ Regarding Atlanta Motorcycle Accidents

How Many People Are Hurt in Motorcycle Accidents Each Year?

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration1 (NHTSA), there were an estimated 92,000 motorcyclists injured in 2014, a 5-percent increase from the previous year.

Is Riding a Motorcycle Significantly More Dangerous than Driving or Riding in a Car?

Motorcycles are consistently ranked among the most dangerous vehicles on the roadway. The fact that riders have none of the protection that is associated with being in an enclosed vehicle body means that they can sustain extremely serious injuries when they are involved in accidents.

What Kinds of Injuries do Motorcyclists Sustain in Accidents?

Motorcyclists can sustain a variety of serious injuries when they are involved in accidents, including the following:

Broken bones

Concussions

Soft tissue injuries

Traumatic brain injuries

Spinal cord injuries

Road rash

Sprains

Dislocations

Crush injuries

Lacerations

What are Some Examples of Driver Negligence that can Cause Motorcycle Accidents?

Motorcycle accidents are often caused by careless drivers who do not see or adequately share the road with motorcycles. Some of the more common forms of driver negligence that often results in motorcycle accidents include speeding, distracted driving,2 failure to yield, and following too closely.

Do Motorcycle Accident Victims Need to Retain Legal Counsel?

Like other accident victims, motorcyclists should speak to an attorney about their options as soon as they can after involvement in an accident. The representation of an attorney will ensure that victims’ rights are protected and that any settlement offer they accept adequately compensates them for their losses.

How Much will a Motorcycle Accident Attorney Cost?

Personal injury lawyers almost always employ contingent fee arrangements with their clients, which means that any legal fees that victims owe come out of their settlement or award as a predetermined percentage. If victims do not receive compensation, they do not owe anything in legal fees.

Motorcycle accident victims are often legally entitled to significant compensation. For this reason, if you have been involved in a motorcycle wreck, you should speak to an attorney as soon as possible.
