Motorcycle accidents are different from car collisions and other motor vehicle injury cases. Because of the structure, maneuverability, and handling characteristics of motorcycles, accidents often result in more serious injuries. The motorcycle accident lawyer of Connelly Law represents victims of motorcycle accidents in the Marietta area and throughout Georgia.
If you have been injured due to someone’s negligence or wrongful actions, we will help you recover the damages you need to move on with your life. Our motorcycle accident attorney will hold at-fault motorists or entities responsible and get you the justice you deserve.
Dedicated Law Firm Helps Bikers Recover Economic and Personal Losses
Injured motorcyclists face unique challenges. At Connelly Law, we understand bikers have a higher risk of injury in accidents, since they do not have the protection built into other types of vehicles. Our attorney also understands that many people regard motorcyclists as reckless, even when they drive safely. When motorists cut off, tailgate, or fail to yield to motorcyclists and their actions result in an accident, we will hold them accountable. Our accident attorney can also investigate road conditions that contributed to an accident, such as potholes or uneven surfaces. Our advice and expertise helps motorcyclists to recover compensation for their injuries as well as for bike repairs or replacement. The damages we can recover for you include:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost wage recovery
- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Totaled bike compensation
- Damaged bike repairs
- Pain and suffering damages
After a motorcycle accident, serious injuries can require years of medical care. It is our goal to obtain a verdict or settlement that will cover your costs and support your recovery. Contact us today or call (404) 500-0259 to get started.
In order to substantiate the liability of the at-fault driver and prove the severity of your injuries, we consult with reputable experts including:
- Motorcycle mechanics
- Trauma doctors
- Accident reconstruction specialists
- Neurologist specializing in Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Forensic engineers
These expert witnesses can provide powerful testimony based on years of experience and extensive understanding of motorcycle accidents and injuries. This aids juries and judges in understanding the severity of motorcycle injuries and the wrongful actions of the driver who caused the accident.
Do You Have to Wear a Motorcycle Helmet in Georgia?
In Georgia, anyone riding a motorcycle, whether they are driving or just a passenger, are legally required to wear a helmet. The helmet must meet or exceed the standards set by the Department of Transportation (DOT). Helmets that do not meet these standards, such as novelty helmets or helmets designed for other activities like skateboarding, are not legal for use on motorcycles in Georgia.
Additionally, Georgia law requires riders to wear eye protection while riding. These can be goggles, glasses with shatterproof lenses, or a face shield attached to a DOT-approved helmet.
Violating Georgia's helmet law can result in fines up to $1,000 or even a year in jail. It's important for riders to comply with this law not only to avoid these penalties, but also to protect themselves from serious injuries or death in the event of an accident.
