Motorcycle Accident Personal Injury Lawyers

If you seek an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer providing legal assistance in the Thomson, GA, area, turn to our experienced personal injury attorneys at Burnside Law Firm. Riding a motorcycle can be an exhilarating experience, offering freedom and a unique connection to the open road. However, this freedom also comes with risks, as motorcycle accidents can result in severe injuries or even fatalities. Despite the precautions that many motorcyclists take, accidents can still happen due to the negligence or recklessness of other drivers on the road.

At Burnside Law Firm, we understand the challenges faced by motorcyclists in Georgia and the misconceptions that can surround motorcycle accidents. Many drivers unfairly blame motorcyclists for collisions, even when the fault lies with the driver of a larger vehicle. In reality, many motorcycle accidents occur because of inattentive drivers who fail to see or properly yield to motorcyclists.

Legal Support for Motorcycle Accident Victims and Families

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. These figures highlight the alarming frequency and severity of motorcycle accidents across the country, underscoring the need for experienced legal representation for victims and their families.

At Burnside Law Firm, we understand the devastating impact that motorcycle accidents can have on individuals and their loved ones. The injuries sustained in motorcycle crashes are often catastrophic, ranging from broken bones and severe lacerations to spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), and even wrongful death. The physical, emotional and financial toll of these accidents can be overwhelming, requiring comprehensive legal support to navigate the complexities of insurance claims and legal proceedings.

Motorcycle Accidents Caused by Negligent Drivers: How We Can Help

The unfortunate fact is that many drivers fail to see motorcycles on the road, which causes 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 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.

When you or a loved one is involved in a serious motorcycle accident in the Thomson, GA, area, the impact can be profound. The repercussions often extend beyond physical injuries, affecting various aspects of your life. Since 1978, our firm has helped people throughout Georgia in seeking to obtain financial damages to cover their:

  • Medical Bills and Future Healthcare Costs: Motorcycle accidents can result in severe injuries such as broken bones, spinal cord damage, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), and internal organ damage. The medical expenses associated with these injuries can be overwhelming. Our legal team will thoroughly evaluate your medical records, consult with medical experts if necessary, and calculate the full extent of your current and future healthcare needs. We will seek compensation to cover hospital bills, surgeries, rehabilitation, ongoing therapy, assistive devices, and any other medical costs related to your accident.
  • Lost Wages and Diminished Earning Capacity: Serious injuries from a motorcycle accident can lead to temporary or permanent disabilities, impacting your ability to work and earn a living. Our attorneys will assess the financial impact of your lost wages, including any bonuses or benefits you may have missed out on due to your injury. We also consider your future earning capacity, especially if your injuries prevent you from returning to your previous occupation or require a career change. 
  • Pain and Suffering Damages: Beyond the tangible financial losses, motorcycle accident victims often endure immense physical pain, emotional distress and mental anguish. These intangible losses, collectively known as pain and suffering damages, are a crucial aspect of your compensation claim. Our legal team understands the impact of your suffering and will meticulously document your pain, emotional trauma, loss of enjoyment of life, and any other non-economic damages you have experienced. 
  • Out-of-Pocket Expenses and Property Damage: In addition to medical bills and lost wages, motorcycle accidents can lead to various out-of-pocket expenses. These may include costs for transportation to medical appointments, home modifications for accessibility, prescription medications, medical equipment, and repairs or replacement of damaged property such as your motorcycle or protective gear. We take into account all your documented expenses and seek reimbursement as part of your overall compensation package.

By addressing these key areas of compensation, our firm aims to provide comprehensive support that helps you recover physically, emotionally and financially from a motorcycle accident. We are committed to advocating for your rights and ensuring that negligent parties are held accountable for the harm they have caused.
