Common Causes of Motorcycle Crashes
Attorney Andrew Lynch is a motorcycle accident lawyer in Dekalb County GA. There are more than eight million motorcycles that take to the roads all across the country each year. Tragically, almost five thousand people are killed each year in motorcycle accidents, and another 90,000 are seriously injured. In Georgia alone the deaths of bikers each year usually exceeds one hundred. A Dekalb County motorcycle accident lawyer understands that these crashes are often caused by the negligence of other drivers. Simply put the other drivers are usually in a rush and failed to look twice and see the motorcycle.
Georgia Department of Transportation statistics reveal that the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include the other driver failing to yield or following too closely to the motorcycle. Another common cause of motorcycle accidents is the other driver cutting the bike off at an intersection. Other drivers speeding or involved in distracted driving behaviors are also common reasons why motorcycle crashes occur.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Because motorcycles provide very little protection to the driver and passenger, injuries sustained in motorcycle crashes are typically more severe than injuries sustained in other types of motor vehicle accidents. The force of impact when a vehicle slams into a motorcycle often causes the motorcycle driver and passenger to be ejected from the bike, which can result in even more severe injuries.
In Georgia, a lawsuit does not penalize you for the vehicle you were riding at the time of your accident. If someone else caused your injuries because of their negligence (mistake) then you are entitled to recover the legal damages from your wreck. Generally speaking, legal damages include special damages, damages you can assign a specific dollar amount to like medical bills and the property damage to your motorcycle, and general damages, these are damages for your pain and suffering, what you had to go through and continue to go through, as determined by a jury of twelve people. Also, in the worst cases punitive damages are able to be recovered against the other party. Punitive damages are damages to punish the other driver for intentional or reckless decisions. A common example of this is when a DUI driver causes your motorcycle accident.
A motorcycle accident lawyer Dekalb County GA will have experience with past clients they have may have represented. Attorney Andrew Lynch knows many victims have suffered from traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractured bones, internal injuries, facial injuries, severe road rash, scarring, and severe bruises, cuts, or lacerations.
