The majority of motorcyclists on the road today are diligent in maintaining their safety. Bikers who comply with Georgia’s legal requirement to wear a helmet, ensure their bike is properly maintained, and carefully observe traffic laws. Bikers are more vulnerable to serious injury in an accident compared to those traveling in cars, trucks, or vans.

Motorcyclists who suffer an injury in an accident should first seek medical care and then promptly consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. You may have legal recourse if another driver’s careless or reckless actions are to blame. A compassionate Athens motorcycle accident lawyer could hold the responsible parties accountable for paying the compensation you deserve.

Common Injuries Suffered by Motorcyclists

Injuries to the head can occur regardless of whether the rider was wearing a helmet and can result in permanent impairment, paralysis, and even death. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is often the result of a forceful impact that occurs after an individual is ejected from their bike.

Road rash is a term that describes burns and abrasions that occur from sliding across the pavement after being thrown from a bike. The most severe third-degree cases commonly require surgery to repair internal tissue. Failure to treat these burns could result in dangerous infections. Some of the other common harm includes broken bones, muscle damage, and psychological trauma.

The severity of a biker’s losses directly relates to the amount of compensation they could recover. A knowledgeable attorney in Athens could calculate an injured motorcyclist’s losses to ensure they are compensated for all their damages.

Injured bikers may be eligible for monetary compensation several different economic damages such as medical expenses, lost earnings, and property losses. There are several types of recoverable non-economic costs associated with pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and disfigurement.

Determining Fault in a Motorbike Wreck in Athens

For an injured plaintiff to receive compensation, they must prove that the defendant was negligent and therefore responsible. Under O.C.G.A. Section 51-1-2, to satisfy a claim of negligence in Georgia, the defendant must have failed to conform to the standards for reasonable conduct.

Drivers owe a duty of care to other motorists that requires acting in a manner that protects others from the risk of injury. One way to prove negligence is by establishing that the defendant violated a traffic law and caused the accident to occur.

Under the comparative negligence theory, a court will assign a percentage of fault to both parties involved. The law does allow for a plaintiff to pursue compensation if they were partially at fault, as long as the defendant’s allocation of responsibility is higher.

A defense will often try to argue that the claimant was responsible for their injuries. An Athens motorcycle accident attorney could fight against these allegations.
