Were You Injured in an Atlanta Motorcycle Crash?

If you or a loved one has sustained an injury in a motorcycle crash, you may be eligible for legal action against the negligent party. At Burnside Law Firm, our attorneys are experienced, knowledgeable and passionate when it comes to defending our clients who were involved in Atlanta road collisions. We have successfully obtained favorable outcomes for countless motorcyclists in the area, helping them discover their rights to recover expenses from the accident.

Advocating for Motorcyclists’ Rights After an Accident

Given the high-performance capabilities and inherent vulnerabilities of motorcycles, collisions unfortunately occur with alarming frequency. These incidents are often exacerbated by the fact that motorcycles are less stable and visible compared to cars, leaving riders exposed to significant risks on the road. In the event of a crash, motorcyclists are particularly susceptible to serious injuries or even fatalities due to the lack of protective enclosures found in typical motor vehicles. Federal government statistics underscore the gravity of these risks; for instance, in 2013, the number of deaths per mile traveled on motorcycles exceeded that of cars by over 26 times, highlighting the stark disparity in safety between these modes of transportation.

At Burnside Law Firm in Atlanta, we recognize that motorcycles are legitimate vehicles entitled to the same rights and privileges as any other vehicle on the road. Our experienced personal injury lawyers are committed to upholding these rights and tirelessly advocating for the well-being of motorcyclists. You can trust us to represent you with unwavering dedication and a relentless pursuit of justice following a motorcycle accident. Our legal team will work diligently to investigate the circumstances of the accident, assess liability, gather evidence, negotiate with insurance companies, and, if necessary, litigate in court to secure the best possible outcome and maximum compensation for your injuries, damages and losses. Rest assured, we stand by your side every step of the way, providing compassionate support and aggressive representation to help you rebuild your life after a motorcycle accident.

Motorcycle Accident Injury Claims FAQ

What should I do immediately after a motorcycle accident?
After a motorcycle accident, it’s crucial to prioritize your safety and well-being. Seek medical attention promptly for any injuries, even if they appear minor. Contact the police to report the accident and obtain an official report. Gather essential information from the scene, including the contact and insurance details of the other involved parties, eyewitness accounts, and photographs of the accident and your injuries if feasible. Avoid discussing fault or making statements to insurance companies without consulting an attorney.

How long do I have to file a motorcycle accident injury claim?
In Georgia, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims, including motorcycle accidents, is typically two years from the accident date. It’s important to take action promptly and seek legal advice well within this timeframe to protect your legal rights and ensure adequate time for investigation and claim preparation.

Can I still pursue a claim if I was partially at fault for the motorcycle accident?
Yes, Georgia follows a comparative negligence rule, allowing you to pursue a claim even if you were partially at fault for the accident. However, your compensation may be proportionately reduced based on your percentage of fault as determined by the court or during negotiations.

What types of compensation can I seek in a motorcycle accident injury claim?
In a motorcycle accident injury claim, you may seek various compensation to cover your losses and damages. These may include medical expenses for treatment and rehabilitation, lost wages or income due to missed work, pain and suffering damages for physical and emotional distress, property damage, and future medical care related to your injuries.

Do I need an attorney for my motorcycle accident injury claim?
While you can handle an insurance claim on your own, having an experienced motorcycle accident attorney can significantly benefit your case. An attorney can navigate the legal complexities of personal injury law, negotiate with insurance companies to maximize your compensation, gather crucial evidence, consult with medical experts, and represent your interests in court if needed. Working with an attorney ensures that your rights are protected and you have the best chance of obtaining fair compensation for your injuries and losses.
