Motorcycle Accidents in Georgia
Motorcycle accidents are not anywhere near as common as other accidents on our roads in the state of Georgia. However, when they do occur, they tend to lead to some of the most extensive harm. This is due to the fact that motorcyclists on our roads have fewer protections than many other parties in the entire state. In 2020, it was reported that approximately 179 people were killed in fatal motorcycle accidents and many others were seriously injured. This means that these accidents increased by approximately 22% from 2017 when there were only 139 fatalities. If you have become injured in a motorcycle accident that is not your fault, you should be prepared to speak with an attorney that you can trust.
