Georgia Motorcycle Accident Claims Attorneys
For the millions of people who ride motorcycles in United States, most of them enjoy the life on the open road that a motorcycle has to offer. Despite their right to be on the road, many drivers blame motorcyclists for the bike crashes that occur every year. The unfortunate fact is that many motorcycle accidents occur because of inattentive drivers who fail to see a motorcyclist before too late. At the Augusta, Georgia, law office of Burnside Law Firm, we represent people injured or killed in a motorcycle accident in Georgia.
In 2005 alone, a study conducted by the National Highway Transportation Administration (NHTSA) reported that there were 4,533 motorcycle fatalities and 87,000 motorcycle injuries on U.S. roadways. That is a 14 percent increase over the statistics reported in 2004. Our firm represents people and the family of people injured or killed in serious motorcycle accidents.

Motorcycle Accidents Caused by Negligent Drivers
The unfortunate fact is that many drivers fail to see motorcycles on the road and cause most motorcycle accidents. While motorcycles are more difficult to see than other motor vehicles, many of these accidents are the result of inattentive drivers. Aggressive and careless drivers put motorcycle riders at a disproportionate risk of suffering from a serious bodily and head injury on Georgia roads. According to a 2005 study conducted by the NHTSA, motorcyclists are 34 times more likely to be killed and eight times more likely to be injured per vehicle mile than a driver of a car or truck.
