Bicycle Accidents in Georgia

Bicycle accidents do not happen as commonly as other accidents on our roads in Georgia. However, when they do occur, they tend to lead to some of the most extensive harm. Because bicyclists have no protection in the event of an accident with any other type of vehicle, victims are likely to become seriously injured or even killed in these accidents. In just one recent year’s time in Georgia, it is estimated that approximately 17 people were killed in fatal bicycle accidents. Children are some of the most at-risk parties because they are not always aware of the dangers of our roads. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a bicycle crash, you should speak with an attorney that you can trust. 

The aftermath of a bicycle-related accident can affect your life in a variety of ways. You may wonder where you can turn during this difficult time in your life. Many severe injuries stem from bicycle accidents, including the following: 

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Organ damage
  • Broken bones
  • Paralysis

These injuries land victims in the hospital for days, weeks, or even months at a time. On top of this, they cause victims to miss out on time in the workplace. If you have been hurt in a bicycle crash, you should speak with a dedicated Martinez personal injury lawyer immediately.
