Georgia Motorcycle Accident Claims Attorneys

For the millions of people who ride motorcycles in the 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.

Seeking Justice After Serious Motorcycle Accidents

In 2005 alone, a comprehensive study conducted by the National Highway Transportation Administration (NHTSA) revealed alarming statistics regarding motorcycle accidents on U.S. roadways. The study documented a staggering 4,533 motorcycle fatalities and 87,000 motorcycle injuries, marking a concerning 14 percent increase over the previous year’s reported figures in 2004. These numbers underscore the serious risks and consequences associated with motorcycle accidents, highlighting the urgent need for effective legal representation in such cases.

Burnside Law Firm is dedicated to advocating for individuals and families impacted by these tragic incidents. We specialize in representing those injured or bereaved due to serious motorcycle accidents, recognizing the profound physical, emotional and financial toll these events can inflict. By contacting us, you can schedule a free initial consultation with a seasoned personal injury attorney with the experience and compassion necessary to navigate complex legal proceedings on your behalf. We are committed to helping you obtain the rightful compensation and justice you deserve for your losses and injuries stemming from motorcycle accidents. Don’t hesitate to contact our firm for dedicated legal support during this challenging time.

Motorcycle Accidents Caused by Negligent Drivers

The unfortunate reality is that a significant number of drivers overlook or fail to notice motorcycles sharing the road, leading to a high incidence of motorcycle accidents. Despite motorcycles being inherently more challenging to spot compared to larger motor vehicles, a considerable portion of these accidents can be attributed to the negligence or inattention of drivers. The combination of aggressive behaviors and careless maneuvers by drivers significantly elevates the risk faced by motorcycle riders, often resulting in severe bodily injuries and head trauma on Georgia’s roads. This heightened risk is underscored by alarming statistics. For instance, a detailed 2005 study conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) revealed staggering figures: motorcyclists are 34 times more likely to suffer fatal injuries and eight times more likely to sustain injuries per vehicle mile traveled compared to drivers of cars or trucks. These statistics highlight the disparity in safety faced by motorcycle riders and emphasize the urgent need for increased awareness, responsible driving practices, and legal advocacy to protect the rights and safety of motorcyclists on our roadways.
