Motorcycle Accidents

Georgia Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

It is ironic that the very reason riding a motorcycle can be so exhilarating is also the reason motorcycle accidents can be so disastrous. For it is your freedom from a car’s “cage” that makes you so vulnerable in an accident. Our experienced motorcycle accident attorneys at Southside will aggressively handle your case to get you the compensation you deserve.

How motorcycle accidents happen
According to studies by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly 75% of all motorcycle accidents and 50% of fatal accidents, involve two vehicles. The second is usually a car, and the motorcyclist almost always fares worse.

The most common factors in motorcycle accidents include:

  • Inexperienced riders or drivers
  • Speeding
  • Alcohol & drugs
  • Distractions (texting, talking on a cell phone, eating)
  • Weaving in and out of traffic
  • Not using a turn signal
  • Driving on the wrong side of the road
  • Tailgating
  • Lane splitting
  • Poor weather conditions
  • Unexpected obstacles
  • Under-cornering
  • Over braking
  • Vehicle defects
  • Road defects (potholes, broken asphalt)
  • Harassment and road rage
  • Failing to wear protective gear (helmet, leather)

The high cost of motorcycle accidents
In most cases it is the front of the motorcycle that is hit. This is also the point of impact that results in the most incapacitating and fatal injuries. If you have been in a motorcycle accident, you may already have a good idea of its cost, including physical and emotional pain, expensive medical bills, lost wages and property damage.

Identifying every potential factor in an accident is important in determining who is at fault or what percent each is at fault and who is financially responsible.

Fault can be a complex question on which you, the other driver, police and emergency responders, and insurance companies do not agree. It is even further complicated if there were equipment failures, poor road conditions, public vehicles, or obstacles involved.

An attorney can help prepare your strongest arguments and may even retain a private investigator to help build your case. But you must act quickly. The insurance companies will want to settle as quickly as they can. They will not want to wait to discover that you have long-term medical and disability issues. To them, it’s just business. To you, it is your future. Do not agree to any settlement without talking to an attorney.

 

Our experienced motorcycle accident attorneys can help you:

  • Understand your legal options
  • Conduct an investigation into the accident
  • Challenge the police report’s findings
  • Help prevent insurance companies from settling too soon
  • Ensure that your long-term medical, psychological and financial needs are identified
  • Fight for compensation

Recovering from a motorcycle accident can be a long, hard road. And it is a road you should not head down alone.

“Mr. Gebhardt successfully represented me in a hit & run incident and the other driver ended up being found to be intoxicated also. With Mr. Gebhardt’s dogged determination the other parties insurance company settled for entire amount of damages including auto, medical and other damages as a result. In addition Mr. Gebhardt represented me in a case of damages caused by a utility contractor in my home that resulted in flooding the lower level of my house. Again, through Mr. Gebhardt’s persistence and thorough knowledge of the law, the claim was again resolved in a very satisfactory manner. I’d highly recommend this attorney.
