Bicycle Accidents in Georgia

Bicycle accidents are some of the most severe accidents that happen on our roads in Georgia every year. This is due to the fact that bicyclists have no protection from harm in the event of an accident with any type of vehicle. This means that bicyclists are more likely to sustain serious injuries or even be killed in the event of an accident. In 2019, it was reported that approximately 21 bicyclists were killed in fatal accidents throughout the state of Georgia. Losing a loved one in a bicycle accident can be a challenging thing to face.
