Motorcycles are fast and fun, but accidents can be life-altering. From broken bones to burn injuries, neck and spine injuries, loss of limbs, paralysis, and traumatic brain injury (TBI), victims can be left hurt, unable to work, and unable to pay medical bills. If someone else’s negligence caused your motorcycle accident, you may be eligible to pursue compensation.
Motorcycle Accidents in Georgia
Georgia motorcycle accidents are frequently caused by the negligence of other motorists. Speeding, reckless driving, unsafe lane changes, and drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol all contribute to rising motorcycle collision statistics.
Due to the nature of the vehicle, motorcycle accidents are more dangerous than car accidents. The two-wheeled design offers less stability, which means even a small bump or tap can send a bike spinning out of control. Without a protective frame, riders are left exposed to roadways and debris. And unlike cars and trucks, motorcycles lack standard safety features like airbags and seat belts. Riders may be thrown or dragged during a collision, frequently resulting in serious injuries that require urgent medical attention.
Motorcycle laws in Georgia require riders to wear a helmet while operating any motorized bike. Other motorists must share the road and provide motorcycles full use of the lane, and responsible drivers should always maintain a safe distance, especially at intersections.

Thorough Accident Investigation
Cobb Personal Injury attorneys defend clients in claim negotiations and in court.

Once we’ve identified the at-fault party, we will aggressively pursue compensation from all who are involved.
Despite popular safety campaigns urging car and truck drivers to look twice and potentially save a life, rear-end collisions, T-bone accidents, and sideswipe accidents are all too common. Low-profile two-wheeled motorcycles can be difficult for others to spot, especially if a motorist is distracted, using a cell phone, or driving aggressively. If another driver’s negligence has left you injured in a motorcycle accident, don’t hesitate to contact an experienced personal injury attorney who will fight for your rights.
Motorcyclists must remain alert on city streets and rural roads alike. Aside from other drivers, road hazards pose an increased risk for motorcycles. Whether it’s a recessed or exposed manhole cover, poorly maintained pavement, or unfilled potholes, riders can easily be thrown off balance and made to lose control of a bike. In these instances, if a government entity or other party acted negligently, our team will hold them accountable.
Other motorists rarely offer motorcycles the space they need to operate safely on the road. Accidents from tailgating or following too closely can result in serious harm, even at low rates of speed. When someone else is responsible for injuries you’ve sustained, you are legally entitled to sue the other driver for damages after an accident.
Equipment and Product Defects
In some cases, motorcycle accidents may be caused by or made worse by defects in safety equipment or the bike itself. If a defective part, malfunctioning safety gear, or improper assembly contributed to your motorcycle crash, it may be necessary to seek restitution with a manufacturer directly. We negotiate on your behalf to ensure you receive fair compensation from all liable parties.
Wrongful Death Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents can be deadly. If your loved one has been killed in a motorcycle accident, you need talented legal representation to recover the compensation you deserve. Contact an expert personal injury attorney to obtain compassionate legal help and ensure your future is protected.
After a motorcycle accident in Georgia, insurance companies will attempt to limit the payout or deny your claim entirely. Don’t negotiate with insurance representatives on your own! Our personal injury team can help you navigate the claims process and win your best settlement offer.
When should I file a personal injury motorcycle claim?

Frequently Asked Questions
The cost of bringing a personal injury case cannot be always estimated because there are many variables that affect the cost. Some hotly contested personal injury cases may require the presentation of expert testimony. And if the victim or claimant requires ongoing medical treatment or care, that increases the cost as well. All actual expenses for treatment or litigation, however, may be recovered as damages.
Under Georgia law, motorists are only required to carry a minimum of $25,000 in automotive accident insurance. But when an accident results in serious bodily injury or death, the amount claimed as damages may exceed the maximum amount of insurance coverage when their insurance is only for the minimum amount of $25,000. Costs that exceed the insurance policy coverage will be shouldered by the party found liable.
A “personal injury” means injury caused to a person, a person’s body or a person’s property. Note that the word “person” can refer to an actual human being, an unborn child, or a corporation. Property may include things like a car or a house, an income or a business.
