What Laws Apply in a GA Motorcycle Claim?

Navigating the legal landscape after a motorcycle accident requires an understanding of Georgia’s specific laws. Here are some key laws that apply:

Statute of Limitations

In Georgia, the statute of limitations for filing a motorcycle accident claim is 2 years. Waiting too long to file a claim can result in forfeiture of your right to seek compensation.

Helmet Laws

While helmet laws exist in Georgia, not wearing one doesn’t automatically bar you from seeking compensation for injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident. However, the absence of a helmet can impact your case and underscore the need for legal representation.

Comparative Negligence

Georgia follows a doctrine of modified comparative negligence, meaning you can only recover damages if you’re found to be less than 50% liable for the accident. Proving your share of liability is important when building a strong case and maximizing your chances of receiving fair compensation.

Compensation Available to Injured Motorcycle Riders

Motorcycle accident victims in Georgia may be entitled to various forms of compensation. This can include reimbursement for medical expenses, compensation for lost wages or reduced earning potential, and damages for pain and suffering endured as a result of the accident.

It’s essential to accurately calculate the full extent of your damages to ensure you receive fair compensation. Our legal team will meticulously assess your case and pursue all avenues of compensation available to you.

Why Are Motorcycle Accidents So Severe?

Motorcycle accidents often result in severe injuries due to the lack of protection afforded by the vehicle and the road. Motorcycles are inherently less stable and offer less protection than other vehicles on the road. Additionally, their smaller size makes them more susceptible to potentially being overlooked by other motorists. These factors contribute to the severity of injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents, highlighting the importance of seeking experienced legal representation to navigate the complexities of your case and secure the compensation you deserve.

Take These Steps After Being Injured on a Motorcycle

If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, ensure your immediate safety by moving to a safe location if possible. Avoid removing your helmet or gear until medical help arrives to prevent exacerbating any injuries.

Immediately dial 911 to report the accident and request medical assistance. Even if your injuries appear minor, it’s essential to seek medical treatment promptly to assess the extent of your injuries and ensure proper care.

Upon emergency responders’ arrival, accept medical treatment and follow their recommendations. Document all medical procedures, diagnoses, and treatments received as these will be crucial for your case.

While still at the scene, if possible, gather evidence by taking photos of the accident scene, including vehicle damage, road conditions, and any visible injuries. Collect contact information from witnesses who may have observed the accident.

As soon as possible, reach out to a qualified motorcycle accident lawyer in Dalton to protect your rights and explore your legal options. An experienced attorney will guide you through the process, handle communication with insurance companies, and advocate for your best interests.

Your attorney will provide expert legal guidance, ensuring your rights are protected at every stage of the process. They will help you understand your options, negotiate with insurance companies, and, if necessary, represent you in court to seek fair compensation for your injuries and damages.

Taking these steps promptly after a motorcycle accident can help safeguard your rights, ensure proper medical treatment, and strengthen your potential legal case.

Guys listen! My Attorneys Jill Crouch and Brent who run the place are the most proficient accident attorneys I've ever witnessed! No lie, I got awarded an amount bigger than a yearly salary from an 18 wheeler accident settlement through them!! (If you know, you know!) I get paid sometime this month! It took less than a year to settle and the ONLY reason it took that long was because the treatment was extensive and needed months to complete. If you're EVER in an accident in the state of Tennessee, MCMAHAN LAW FIRM NEEDS TO BE YOUR FIRST CALL AFTER THE AMBULANCE!!! THIS GROUP OF ATTORNEYS ARE CHANGING, SAVING AND REVIVING LIVES!!
