Motorcyclists do not have the protection offered to drivers of cars and trucks. Crashes that would cause minor injuries to a car or truck driver can be catastrophic to motorcyclists. As a result, motorcyclists are disproportionately represented in serious injury and fatal traffic accidents. The fatality rate for motorcyclists in accidents is six times the fatality rate for passenger car occupants, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

If you have been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident or lost a loved one, you may be eligible for insurance compensation. But you may ultimately need to prove your claim in court  — and some jurors don’t understand motorcycle riders. If you want to level the playing field, Millar & Mixon, LLC get results in Georgia motorcycle accident cases.

Bruce R. Millar recently obtained a judgment of $25 million for a motorcycle accident client who was paralyzed when he struck an improperly marked barrier. This is just one of our large motorcycle accident case results. If you or a family member of yours has been injured in a motorcycle accident, we have the experience and the passion to help. Call or contact us online today for a free consultation about your case.

Motorcycle Riders Face Unique Dangers

Motorcycle accidents often result in injuries that are far more serious than those sustained in the average fender-bender, meaning that motorcycle accident injuries can be lengthy and expensive cases.

A motorcycle accident can easily lead to:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Fractures (broken bones)
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Amputations (loss of toes, feet, legs, arms, fingers).

Too often, motorists who have caused an accident that has injured a motorcyclist say they did not see the motorcycle. In some cases, a motorist has not properly judged the distance or speed of the motorcycle. But motorists have an obligation to share the road, regardless of the vehicle they or others drive.

Motorists should consistently look for motorcycles at intersections and in blind spots, and before making turns or lane changes. Motorists must also avoid crowding into the motorcyclist’s lane or following motorcycles too closely, because motorcycles stop quickly due to their comparatively light weight.

In addition to being liable for not safely sharing the road, motorists can be held accountable if they cause a motorcycle accident through careless and reckless driving, such as:

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk or drugged driving
  • Fatigued / drowsy driving
  • Aggressive driving (multiple lane changes, improper passing, running stop signs or stoplights, etc.).

In some cases, a dangerous or hidden roadway hazard has caused a motorcycle accident, and the local government and/or a contractor responsible for that roadway may be held liable for the accident victim’s injuries.

We Stand Up for Injured Motorcycle Riders

The medical bills from a motorcycle accident injury can be extensive. In some cases, medical treatment, physical therapy and personal care may be needed for years or for the rest of the victim’s life. Medical costs may include the cost to obtain and maintain assistive or adaptive equipment, ranging from a walker or wheelchair to a hospital bed or a specially adapted van.

A motorcyclist injured in an accident may also seek compensation for property damage to their bike, lost income as they recover and are out of work, and for their pain and suffering.

Even if you are the innocent victim of a motor vehicle accident, you will be required to prove your case to obtain the compensation you deserve.

Our legal team can investigate your motorcycle accident and compile evidence of what happened and why you were injured, as well as the full extent and costs of your injuries and other losses. We also work to uncover sources of insurance and other benefits available to pay for your losses. As we seek compensation for you through negotiations or court action, we also can negotiate to reduce hospital and insurance liens that may threaten to reduce the amount of money you or your family receive at the end of the case.

We have handled many cases involving motorcycle accident injuries. Our firm has the experience and resources necessary to help you prove your damages and obtain a fair settlement or judgment. Millar & Mixon employs qualified accident reconstruction experts and investigators, most with many years of law-enforcement experience.
