Motorcycle Accidents in Georgia
Motorcycle accidents have been steadily increasing over recent years, though they are not the most common accidents on our roads. Because motorcyclists have no protection from harm, they are more likely to become seriously injured or lose their lives in accidents than many other parties on our roadways in Georgia. In 2020 alone, it was reported that approximately 179 individuals were killed in motorcycle accidents and many others were seriously injured. Drivers are supposed to watch out for motorcyclists at all times so that these accidents can always be prevented. However, this does not always happen and these collisions continue to occur in the blink of an eye. If you have been hurt in a motorcycle accident, you should speak with an attorney that you can trust.
