Motorcycle Accidents in Georgia

Motorcycle accidents are known for being some of the most severe accidents on our roads in the state of Georgia. This is due to the fact that motorcyclists have no protection from harm in the event of an accident, aside from their helmets if they are wearing one. All too commonly, motorcyclists are thrown from their vehicles in the event of an accident involving any type of vehicle. In 2020 alone, it was reported that approximately 179 people were killed in fatal motorcycle accidents due to negligent acts. If you have lost someone you love in a motorcycle accident caused by another party, you should speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
