Injured in a motorcycle collision? We can help.
Motorcyclists, like other vehicle operators, have the right to use Georgia’s roadways. Too often, however, other motorists are careless and cause collisions with motorcycles as a result. When this occurs, the motorcyclist often takes the brunt of the impact and suffers considerable injury. While the driver of the other vehicle may walk away virtually unscathed, the rider may experience catastrophic or life-threatening injuries and a totaled bike. Insurance companies often try to diminish the rider’s damages and argue that the motorcyclist assumed a risk of another driver’s negligence by riding a motorcycle in the first place.
Of course, negligent drivers are legally responsible for whatever injuries they cause regardless of what their insurance companies may claim. When you work with a South Georgia motorcycle accident lawyer at The King Firm, we will fight the insurance company to protect your legal rights. We have years of experience in representing clients who have been injured in motorcycle accidents. Utilizing our vast experience in former insurance defense, we stand up to insurance providers to pursue the highest possible settlements or awards on behalf of our clients.
Bicyclist’s Rights when Injured in a Collision with a Car
Bicyclists also have the right to use roads in Georgia. Cyclists are supposed to follow the rules of the road and ride as far right as possible when there is no bike lane. But as a bicyclist following the rules, you aren’t guaranteed that car drivers will do the same. In addition to regular rules of the road, motorists have to follow special rules when driving near cyclists. These include leaving a safe distance of at least three feet between their vehicle and the bike when passing. When a bike lane is present, motorists are supposed to yield to the cyclists.
Many motorists get frustrated with bicycle riders and pass too close, speed around the bicycles, turn quickly to avoid having to wait for cyclists or take other risky driving measures. These moves can cause collisions with cyclists, who often suffer grave or life-threatening injuries as well as the loss of expensive bicycle equipment.
Insurance companies often assume the bicyclist was at fault, but many times it’s the automobile driver who was negligent. If you or a loved one were cycling and injured in a collision with a car, the South Georgia bicycle accident lawyer at The King Firm can help determine fault, fight the insurance company and make sure you are compensated.
