Motorcycle accidents are among the most devastating traffic accidents.
Accidents involving a motorcycle can result in very serious injuries and may wreak havoc on your finances and personal life. Motorcycle accidents often lead to enormous medical expenses, loss of employment or future earning power, and severe pain and suffering for those involved. Victims have the right to make a claim for compensation for the negligent actions of unsafe drivers on the road. If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident hiring an experienced Georgia motorcycle accident lawyer is the best way to protect your legal right to a recovery. Mr. Simmons is a fellow rider and understands the issues bike riders face on the road on a daily basis.
While motorcycle accidents can be the fault of the motorcycle driver, they are more often the result of negligent automobile drivers, despite misconceptions to the contrary. Accidents often occur because automobile drivers are not alert to the presence of motorcyclists sharing the road, not because of reckless driving on the part of the motorcyclists. Unfortunately, it is often the motorcyclists who suffer the worst of the injuries in an accident. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 50 percent of motorcycle accidents resulting in death involve another vehicle, and 42 percent of two-vehicle fatal motorcycle crashes involved a vehicle turning left while the motorcycle was going straight, passing, or overtaking the vehicle. It is important to know that if you have suffered as a result of a motorcycle accident, you are not alone. If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident that has resulted in serious injuries, Henry Simmons may be able to help. Motorcycle accident cases are often complex and difficult to prove. You need an experience attorney AND experienced rider to understand the case.
