Making a Claim For Damages

While motorcycles have grown in popularity thanks to their efficient, environmentally friendly benefits, they also bring many cons. Unfortunately, compared to regular sized vehicles, motorcycles offer little protection for riders. Because of the little protection motorcycles offer its riders, the injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents can be severe in nature and often catastrophic. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcycles account for less than 1% of miles driven, yet make up 15% of traffic deaths.

TYPES OF MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT INJURIES

When pursuing a motorcycle accident claim, you must consider liability and damages to accurately estimate a value to your case. Liability pertains to the degree of which the other driver is responsible for your injuries and damages have to do with any losses you’ve suffered in relation to your accident. The more severe the injury, the higher the damages are.

Common motorcycle accident injuries include:

  • Brain damage
  • Permanent muscle damage
  • Fractured bones
  • Road rash

Who is to blame for my accident?

According to statistics, most Georgia motorcycle accidents occur at intersections. Some of the most notably dangerous intersections in the Atlanta area include 14th Street and Peachtree, Barge Road and Campbelltown Road, Buford Highway and Peachtree Street, and Delmar Lane and Delmoor Court. In a recent year, Allstate and the Georgia Department of Transportation even began posting signs at some of the most dangerous intersections for motorcyclists.

So who is to blame for these accidents? Is it automatically the driver who hit the motorcycle rider? Not necessarily. In order to prove fault, there must be some action taken by the other driver that was either negligent, reckless, or a blatant violation of some traffic law.

This could include example like:

  • Failing to check in a blind spot
  • Speeding or reckless lane changing
  • Failing to properly yield
  • Pushing a motorcycle rider off the road
  • Not adjusting to dangerous weather conditions
  • Driver distractions, such as texting while driving
