Fighting to Protect the Rights of Injured Motorcyclists in Atlanta
Motorcyclists and their passengers face unique dangers on the roads and highways, even when taking all possible precautions and utilizing proper safety equipment. Even a seemingly minor collision with another motor vehicle can result in catastrophic injuries, including severe brain and spine injuries.
At Cunningham Bounds, we recognize the elevated risks that motorcyclists take on and are dedicated to helping them fight for justice when they are injured due to the actions of negligent drivers. Since 1958, we have successfully represented countless clients and recovered billions of dollars in collective damages, which has led to our reputation as one of the top personal injury firms in the United States.
Why Should I Consider Hiring a Lawyer after a Motorcycle Collision in Atlanta?
You may not necessarily need a lawyer if you are involved in a crash where there is no significant property damage and if your doctor gives you a clean bill of health. In most cases, though, a motorcycle accident will result in your missing work and needing comprehensive medical care. In these instances, you need an attorney who has the experience necessary to secure a just settlement.
The reality is that the insurance companies involved in these cases are not on your side. Their motive is profit, and they will likely offer less than your losses warrant. Our Atlanta motorcycle accident attorneys are familiar with the strategies insurers use and will fight to get you the compensation needed to fully cover your damages.
What Causes Motorcycle Accidents in Atlanta?
Drivers of all types of vehicles have a legal responsibility to follow traffic laws and be mindful of others on the road. Unfortunately, many drivers do not adequately watch out for motorcyclists, causing riders the need for extra vigilance. Even with total focus and defensive driving, motorcyclists frequently get into wrecks because of the actions of negligent drivers.
Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Distracted driving (including texting while driving)
- Fatigued driving
- Intoxicated driving
- Reckless driving
- Changing lanes without signaling
- Turning without signaling
- Failure to obey traffic lights and signs
- Failure to yield the right of way
- Excessive speeding
- Lane splitting
- Opening car doors without checking for approaching motorcyclists
Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Because motorcyclists do not have the external protection afforded to drivers of enclosed motor vehicles, they are typically more susceptible to sustaining serious injuries in a wreck. Even a low-speed collision can throw a motorcyclist from their vehicle and result in life-altering injuries.
Some of the most common motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Limb amputations
- Broken bones
- Soft tissue injuries
- Internal injuries
- Road rash
- Wrongful death
