What to Know About Motorcycle Accident Claims

Motorcycle accidents can severely injure motorcyclists while the driver of the car may walk away relatively unscathed. Due to issues of visibility, motorcyclists can be easily hit when they are not seen. If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident as a result of someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to be compensated for your losses.

While for the most part, motorcycle-accident claims will be similar to auto-accident claims; there are a few additional considerations to keep in mind: Motorcyclists, though quite vulnerable when on the road, are often depicted in the media as reckless and unsafe drivers. In actuality, motorcyclists tend to have a heightened awareness of safety concerns. Especially when it comes to fault, many car drivers may deny liability on the basis that they couldn’t see the motorcyclist, and therefore they must have been not driving safely. Review Georgia’s motorcycle laws on rider and bike requirements. If you were adhering to these laws on how your bike must be outfitted in order to be visible, it is not your fault you were overlooked.

Injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents can often be catastrophic. If you have been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, speak with an attorney about our case. Severe injuries may complicate your personal injury claim and you will have the best chance at a full and fair settlement if you have experienced representation. Another important consideration when it comes to motorcycle accident claims is the issue of property damage. When cars are hit, they usually suffer exterior damage only, which can easily be fixed in a shop in a matter of days. Cars are also much more resilient than motorcycles. Even if you were involved in an accident at lower speeds, your bike may be totaled and you may have damage to one or more of your accessories. If your bike is repairable, it may take longer to fix if you do not live near a motorcycle mechanic or if special parts need to be ordered.

Accessories added to a motorcycle can make your ride more enjoyable and safer. However, items like saddlebags, helmet cams, and back rests come at a cost and could be significantly damaged in an accident. While an insurance adjuster may try to downplay the value of these items, or even deny their responsibility to compensate you for them, you are entitled to compensation for all your losses, whether they are damage to your bike itself or damage to your accessories. With these considerations in mind, you can approach your claim aware of the issues that may arise.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

GAAW Wright

Tom has been our attorney for many years. He has been with us through thick and thin. He has successfully handled all our queries and cases with patience and understanding. We highly recommend Tom!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
