Motorcycle accidents have increased over the years and represent a disproportionate amount of traffic fatalities. In just two years, these fatal incidents increased by a whopping 22%. Annually, the costs due to hospitalization and medical care total over $221 million dollars.
Motorcycle crashes often occur due to various factors, including heavy metropolitan traffic, especially in Atlanta, hazardous rural road conditions, and the negligence of other road users.
When it comes to legal recourse, Georgia operates under the “at-fault” system in vehicular accidents. This system stipulates that the party responsible for causing the accident, typically through negligence, is liable for any damages and injuries that occur. For motorcyclists, this is crucial as they are often wrongly perceived due to prevailing biases, making the fight for justice an uphill battle.
Furthermore, the state enforces a statute of limitations, which provides a deadline for filing personal injury or property damage claims resulting from a motorcycle accident. In Georgia, this deadline is typically two years from the date of the accident. Missing this window can severely affect your ability to seek legal remedy.
Liability assessment in Georgia also considers the “modified comparative fault” rule, where an injured party can recover damages only if they are less than 50% responsible for the accident. However, the compensation will be reduced by their percentage of fault. This is particularly relevant in motorcycle accidents, where bias and stereotypes about bikers can influence proceedings. If it’s determined that the motorcyclist was partly at fault, whether due to lane splitting, speeding, or other factors, compensation may be significantly impacted.
With an intricate understanding of these guidelines and a finger on the pulse of Georgia’s motorcycling community, TopDog Law strives to navigate these complexities, ensuring that your rights are front and center and that you receive the fair treatment and compensation you need and deserve.
Motorcycle accidents in Georgia don’t occur in isolation and are often the result of one or several combined elements that compromise road safety. Each of these factors can contribute significantly to the occurrence of a crash and, in the legal arena, play a crucial role in determining liability and negligence. The process of investigating your motorcycle accident claim involves gathering tangible evidence, witness statements, and expert testimonies, all aimed at unequivocally establishing the fault, thereby reinforcing the pursuit of rightful compensation.
Below are the typical causes of motorcycle accidents in the state:
When another party’s negligence shatters your sense of safety, knowing that the legal system acknowledges your plight can provide some solace. Compensation in these instances is designed to restore, to some degree, what was lost or affected due to the accident.
This restoration isn’t just about covering the costs of physical damages like your motorcycle’s repairs. It delves deeper, addressing the comprehensive impact of the accident on your life. However, achieving full compensation requires a lawyer with a detailed understanding of state laws and solid evidence that establishes the other party’s negligence.
