Atlanta Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable in Atlanta

Drivers are quick to blame motorcyclists for their crash, while in actuality, the majority of motorcycle accidents in Georgia are caused by negligent drivers of cars, SUVs, and commercial trucks – not motorcyclists. Many drivers do not look over their shoulders before switching lanes or fail to signal before changing lanes or making a turn.

When drivers are negligent, motorcyclists often get injured. The injuries they suffer are generally severe because motorcycle operators are exposed to higher risks of great bodily harm. They may even sustain life-altering injuries which require adequate compensation. Additionally, they may deal with financial hardships and emotional distress as a result of the incident.

Do Not Settle Your Claim Without Talking to an Attorney First

Sometimes medical treatment isn't only required immediately after the wreck. Depending on the injuries sustained, medical care for injured motorcyclists could be life-long. Injured motorcycle operators and passengers near Atlanta should talk with an experienced injury lawyer to make sure their interests are being protected and that they aren't collecting too low of a settlement from the insurance company.

Attorneys who work with personal injury cases daily understand that insurance companies try to get away with paying accident victims the lowest compensation possible. This is why insurers rush to offer settlements, and this is why it is critical to hold off accepting an offer until you know your full prognosis.

Distracted Driving: Common Cause of Motorcycle Accidents

Unfortunately, one of the most common reasons for motorcycle accidents is due to distracted driving. Whether a driver is texting, not following highway signs, or participating in any other forms of inattention, this is one of the easiest ways for an accident with a motorcyclist to occur. Drivers who take to the road while under the influence of alcohol or drugs are one of the biggest causes of motorcycle accidents.

Since motorcycles are smaller vehicles, the other car or truck may not notice their presence and turn or change lanes in front of them. It is each driver's responsibility, however, to pay particular attention to all other drivers on the road. Negligence of any kind is unacceptable and the driver responsible for the collision must be held accountable.

Injured in a Hit & Run Motorcycle Accident?

Being involved in a hit & run accident is stressful. You may feel violated, overwhelmed and not know what to do because hit-and-run cases can be complicated. You will have to deal with your own insurance company after this type of crash.

Insurance companies generally do not cover all your medical expenses if you have the basic coverage. If you have uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage, then you will most likely get fully compensated for your medical bills. This is why it is important to get uninsured/underinsured coverage so that your property damage and medical expenses will be covered in the event of a hit & run accident or a crash with a driver who is not properly insured.

It would be wise to talk with an experienced accident attorney to discover your best options and to see if you are entitled to more compensation than what your insurance company is telling you.

Giving Information to the Police

Motorcycle accidents can lead to serious injuries, especially ones that are caused by another driver's negligence. It is important to notify the police of any additional accident information if the other party was driving recklessly, as it could be helpful to your accident case and personal injury claim.

Have any witnesses to the accident call the investigating police officer to give a statement as well. Also, it is a good idea to follow up with the police department to make sure they put the witness’s statement into the accident report notes. This information may be able to help you deal with the insurance company, because it can provide you with leverage.

Why Hire an Accident Attorney?

Injured motorcyclists need someone who is experienced in these types of auto accident cases in order to deal with the insurance companies while they focus on recovering from their injuries.

Getting an Atlanta motorcycle injury attorney involved can be extremely beneficial for victims, as a lawyer can help with the following:

  • Negotiating with the insurance company
  • Understanding medical treatments and prognosis
  • Getting the damaged motorcycle repaired or replaced
  • Documenting lost wages due to time off of work
  • Obtaining full compensation for losses

If you were injured in a motorcycle accident and you require medical treatment, as well as time off to heal, it is critical to have a skilled personal injury attorney from The Kalka Law Group to make sure you receive the best settlement possible.
