Conyers GA Bicycle Accident Attorney Near Me

Bicycles are becoming increasingly popular in Georgia. Not only does biking offer great exercise, it can also be used as a cheap and environmentally friendly form of transportation. Unfortunately, biking is not without its risks. According to research conducted by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), bicycle accidents lead to more than 400,000 emergency room trips each year.

While some of those injuries are minor, unfortunately, many others are traumatic. One of the biggest threats facing cyclists is traffic. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)reports that more than 700 Americans are killed in bike accidents each year. In 2013, 28 cyclists were killed in motor vehicle accident in the state of Georgia alone. Far too many Georgia drivers simply do not take appropriate care to safely share the road with bicycles. Drivers need to get better; cyclists have just as much right to the road

Common Bike Accident Injuries

Bicycle accident injuries vary widely, both in their form and their seriousness. Though, one thing is consistent with all bike accidents: When a vehicle collides with a bike, the cyclist almost always bears the brunt of the impact. Bike riders are inherently exposed to danger. A crash can lead to catastrophic injuries and even fatalities. Some of the most common bike accident injuries that our bike accident attorneys in GA have seen include:

  • Road rash;
  • Deep cuts and lacerations;
  • Ligament damage;
  • Joint damage;
  • Muscle tears;
  • Dental injuries;
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs);
  • Severe psychological injuries;
  • Neck injuries;
  • Back injuries;
  • Broken bones;
  • Amputations
  • Spinal cord injuries; and
  • Partial or total paralysis;

Who is at Fault for a Bicycle Accident in Georgia?

Georgia is a comparative fault jurisdiction. In the state, fault is based on negligence. Essentially, that means that any party who was to blame for an accident, or who shared partial responsibility for an accident, can be held liable for the resulting damages. As we know, accidents involving automobiles and bicycles can lead to severe injury and death. Similar to other auto accidents, we must evaluate which party was negligent in a bicycle accident, and to what degree. Both drivers and cyclists are required to obey the rules of the road, so we have to analyze the circumstances in depth to determine culpability.

Driver negligence comes in many different forms. Some of the most common examples include:

speeding, running a stop sign or traffic light, drifting into the bike lane, or otherwise distracted driving (texting, for example). Of course, riders can also share the blame for a collision. Some of the most common examples of cyclist negligence include: riding the wrong way on a one-way street, running a stop sign, and turning abruptly into traffic.

Ultimately, determining who was at fault for a bike crash requires investigation into the specific circumstances surrounding the collision. As you might imagine, analyzing a stressful situation like this, which likely happened very quickly, is challenging. This is something best left to MG Law. We know the ins and outs of Georgia driving regulations, so you can trust us to get you what’s right.

Georgia Bicycle Accident Victims Deserve Fair Compensation

Once you establish liability, your bicycle accident injury claim will move on to the issue of damages. Far too often, injured bike accident victims overlook this critically important step of the personal injury claims process. In Georgia, victims are owed financial compensation for the full value of their damages. In practice, the big insurance companies often make recovering fair compensation extremely difficult. To do so, you will need to work with a qualified Atlanta bicycle accident attorney who can ensure that your claim is well-documented and properly presented. At MG Law, we can help you hold the insurance company accountable. You may be entitled to money for:

  • Damage to your bike;
  • Ambulance fees;
  • Emergency room bills;
  • All other medical expenses;
  • Long-term disability (LTD);
  • Lost current and future wages;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Mental distress;
  • Disfigurement;
  • Loss of limb;
  • Loss of life enjoyment; and
  • Wrongful death.
