We have an expert understanding of Georgia’s traffic laws. Let us work to get you the funds you need to pay medical and repair bills after a wreck.
Motorcycle riders experience a freedom that other drivers can only imagine. Unfortunately, this freedom comes with serious risks. Motorcycles do not offer riders the same kind of protection as other motor vehicles, meaning that motorcyclists can be seriously hurt in an accident.
The aftermath of a motorcycle accident can be a confusing and frustrating period of time. Other drivers often refuse to compensate motorcyclists for their injuries. In fact, many drivers try to blame the motorcycle rider for causing the accident in order to avoid paying for their actions. You do not have to fight for fair compensation all by yourself. Contact us today at (855)-329-7144.
Atlanta’s Laws for Motorcyclists
Motorcyclists in Atlanta are required to follow several rules that are designed to increase their safety. Before operating a motorcycle, you must legally:
- Obtain a Motorcycle License
- Wear a Helmet (Drivers and Passengers)
- Keep Head and Tail Lights On
While these laws can partially protect motorcycle riders, they cannot prevent accidents. In fact, the state saw 173 fatalities from motorcycle accidents just in 2016.
Dangers Faced by Motorcyclists in Atlanta
There are a number of reasons for the prevalence of motorcycle accidents in the Atlanta area. Motorcycles are small vehicles that are often missed by impatient drivers. In fact, many accidents occur when drivers turn directly into motorcycles they did not see.
However, some motorcycle accidents do not involve any other drivers at all. You may still be able to get compensation if you were injured in a single-vehicle accident. Many times, the condition of the road or damage to road signs may have contributed to your accident.
You Need Professional Help after a Motorcycle Accident
Trying to handle the aftermath of a motorcycle accident on your own can leave you facing mountains of unfair debt. You can improve your chances of getting the compensation you deserve just by reaching out to a motorcycle accident lawyer.
An experienced legal team will be able to:
Deal with Insurance Agents
The insurance company for the driver that hit you will focus on denying your claim after an accident. You may be offered a small settlement or asked to sign an agreement while you are recovering. We highly recommend that you do not talk about your accident or agree to anything without first speaking to a legal professional.
Investigate the Cause of Your Accident
There are many possible causes for motorcycle accidents. Our firm has served clients injured due to drunk driving, distracted driving, and more.
Determining exactly what happened in your case is vitally important to winning your suit. We must be able to prove that the driver that hit you was liable in order to secure compensation. This process is easier if you get help immediately.
Accessing the scene of the accident before everything is moved around makes it easier to build a case. We also need to speak with any eye-witnesses before they can forget what happened.
Fight for Compensation
The Prieto, Marigliano, Holbert & Prieto, LLC, legal team will work to determine the damages you should receive by assessing your medical records and other losses tied to the accident. We aim to get full compensation for our clients, including payment for:
- Medical Bills
- Motorcycle Repairs
- Lost Earnings
- Pain and Suffering
- Impairment and Disability
We can carry out negotiations with insurance agents once our investigations are complete. In many cases, these negotiations allow us to get you the compensation you need to cover your debt and move forward with your life.
If we cannot successfully resolve your case through negotiations, we will take your suit to court. We have years of experience winning cases in the Fulton County court system. We will put the full force of our legal expertise to work for you.
