Some of the most severe injury-causing automobile crashes that we've
represented clients in were those that involved motorcycles. Even with
the protective clothing that many cyclists wear, it is likely that riders
will be injured in wrecks. The asphalt is simply too much for riding jackets,
helmets, and pants in many instances. The only sure way to prevent an
injury from a motorcycle crash is to, obviously, avoid the wreck all together.
When you make the decision to purchase and operate a motorcycle, you should
immediately be aware that you and your actions are the only things keeping
you from being in a crash. Riders shouldn't assume that other drivers
will be extra cautious when driving near bikers on Georgia roadways, because
sometimes they aren't. You're the only person whose actions and
safety precautions that you can control.
In an effort to prove motorcyclists greater safety than even that provided

If you or someone you know are injured in a crash while riding a motorcycle
and the other driver was found to be at fault for the accident, you may
have a legal claim. Your medical bills and other expenses will add up
very quickly, so it is important that you protect yourself and your loved
ones. If a crash was the fault of another, you can request that their
auto insurance company compensate you for the extent of your damages.
