Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles are not only an economical way to commute but it is also a popular form of recreation. In the state of Georgia, there are just under 200,000 motorcycles registered. Their increasing proliferation comes with an increased risk of accidents. If you have been hurt or lost a loved one in a motorcycle vehicle collision near Atlanta, schedule a consultation with the lawyers at the Law Offices of Thomas C. Rowsey. We can advise you on whether you have a claim for compensation and help you assert your rights if you do. Our firm proudly assists injured individuals in Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Roswell, Sandy Springs, and other communities in Fulton, Cobb, and DeKalb Counties.

Highway Accidents Can Cause Serious Injuries

Motorcycles are subjected to more road accidents due to their slender physical profile, causing many drivers to fail to see them. In addition, those who are involved in a motorcycle are subjected to more severe injuries due to the minimal protection. This means that riders often can suffer serious injuries or even a tragic loss of life. Some common accident scenarios include:

  • A car making a left turn into the path of an oncoming motorcycle;
  • A car changing lanes directly into a motorcycle in the neighboring lane; or
  • A car pulling out of a side street or parking lot into an oncoming motorcycle.

When a victim files a personal injury lawsuit, he or she usually tries to show that the defendant was negligent. In motorcycle crash cases, a driver may be held legally liable if the injured person can satisfy the four required elements of this claim, starting with duty and breach. Every person owes a duty of reasonable care when behind the wheel, which means that they must obey traffic laws and otherwise avoid posing unnecessary danger to other users of the road. A breach of this duty may occur in several instances, such as:

  • Failing to obey the speed limit
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Using a cell phone, or
  • Failing to yield at an intersection, among others

If you or family member have been involved in a motorcycle accident, contact Mr. Rowsey for a consultation. He will review your case and discuss next steps to get the legal help you need to file your claim.

David O'Reilly

My family and I moved to Roswell from Chicago over ten years ago. At that time, we were referred to Tom to assist us with some of our legal needs. Since then he has become a trusted friend we consider to be our family attorney. The comfort in being able to speak candidly with him and know that he understands our concerns is invaluable. Tom is a man of integrity, vast experience (more than 25 years), who has an exceptional knowledge of the law. Impeccable ethics and an unparalleled work ethic make him an outstanding attorney who is capable, though, and diligent. I recommend him highly to anyone in need of sound legal counsel.

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.

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. You couldn’t ask for a better person to be fighting for you.
