Atlanta Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycle accidents can be devastating, often resulting in serious injuries or even fatalities. Over 100 motorcyclists lose their lives every year on Georgia roads and thousands more are injured, and most of those riders were wearing helmets as required by law. In Georgia, motorcycles might only account for about two percent of vehicle registrations or be involved in only one percent of traffic crashes statewide, but they tragically make up nearly ten percent of all motor vehicle deaths. At The Schermerhorn Firm, we understand the unique challenges motorcyclists face on the road. We’re here to fight aggressively for your rights and ensure you receive the justice and compensation you deserve. If you were hurt in a motorcycle accident in Georgia, or if you lost a loved one in a tragic fatal crash caused by a negligent driver, contact our office today to speak with a compassionate and dedicated Atlanta motorcycle accident lawyer.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Atlanta

Motorcycle accidents can occur for various reasons, often due to the negligence of other drivers. Some of these common causes include:

  • Distracted driving: Texting, talking on the phone, or any other form of distraction can lead to catastrophic accidents involving motorcyclists. Motorcycles are harder to see than other vehicles on the road, and when drivers aren’t even giving their full attention to the road, it’s a recipe for disaster.

  • Speeding: Excessive speed reduces a driver’s ability to react in time to avoid a collision with a motorcycle. Speed is also a significant factor in the force of a crash, making an already dangerous collision more likely to be catastrophic or fatal.

  • Failure to yield: Many accidents happen because drivers fail to yield the right of way to motorcyclists at intersections or when changing lanes. Drivers turning left into the path of an oncoming motorcycle is one of the leading causes of motorcycle crashes in Atlanta.

  • Driving under the influence: Alcohol or drugs impair a driver’s judgment and reaction times, increasing the risk of accidents with motorcyclists. A drunk driver who weaves or drifts out of their lane can send a motorcycle off the road and into a deadly crash even without a collision.

Types of Compensation We Can Help You Recover

If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to various types of compensation, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and property damage, including reimbursement for repairs or replacement of your motorcycle. At The Schermerhorn Firm, we take the time to understand your situation and build a strong case that delivers full coverage for current and future medical treatments related to your injuries, as well as compensation for the income you’ve lost while recovering from your injuries or if you suffer a disabling injury that keeps you from working. We also make sure not to ignore monetary compensation for the physical pain and emotional distress you’ve experienced, which can often be many times greater than the other damages you’ve suffered.
