Riding a motorcycle is a fun and convenient way to commute, run errands, or simply take in the beauty in and around historic Athens, Georgia. Unfortunately, motorcycles can also be dangerous, particularly when other motorists refuse to share the road. And because their vehicle exposes them to the full force of an impact, motorcyclists are also far more vulnerable than passenger car occupants in the event of a collision.

If you have suffered injuries in a motorcycle accident due to another party’s negligence, you may be entitled to considerable financial compensation from them. Let the experienced motorcycle accident attorneys at Kaufman Law help you demand it. We want to get you the money you need to rebuild your life, and we won’t charge you a fee unless we’re successful. Call us today at 1 (608) 709-5000 or contact us online for a free consultation with a skilled motorcycle accident lawyer serving Athens, Georgia.

How a Georgia Motorcycle Accident Attorney Can Help

When you’re dealing with the aftermath of a motorcycle accident, having a skilled attorney by your side can make a world of difference. At Kaufman Law, we can help you by:

  • Thoroughly investigating your accident
  • Gathering and preserving crucial evidence
  • Interviewing witnesses and experts
  • Determining liable parties
  • Identifying source for compensation
  • Calculating the value of your claim
  • Handling all communications with insurance companies
  • Negotiating aggressively on your behalf
  • Preparing your case for trial and fighting for you in court if necessary

Our experienced team will fight tirelessly to protect your rights and maximize your compensation. We understand the unique challenges motorcyclists face on the road and in the legal system, and we are committed to leveling the playing field for you.

How to Prove Fault in a Georgia Motorcycle Crash

Establishing fault in a motorcycle accident often requires a comprehensive review of the evidence. We employ various strategies to build a robust case, such as:

  • Analyzing police reports and accident scene photos
  • Reviewing traffic camera footage
  • Consulting with accident reconstruction experts
  • Examining vehicle damage and skid marks
  • Interviewing eyewitnesses
  • Investigating the other driver’s history and cell phone records

By meticulously piecing together the evidence, we work to create a clear picture of what happened and who bears responsibility for your injuries.

Possible Injuries from Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents can result in severe injuries, many of which can have long-lasting impacts. Some common injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Road rash and severe skin abrasions
  • Internal organ damage
  • Amputations
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Psychological trauma, including PTSD

We understand the physical, emotional, and financial toll these injuries can take. Our team can work closely with medical experts to fully assess the extent of your injuries and their long-term implications so we can fight for compensation that truly reflects your needs.

Tragically, motorcycle accident injuries can be fatal. If you have lost a loved one in a motorcycle crash, our attorneys can file a wrongful death lawsuit to hold the wrongdoer accountable and recover compensation on your behalf.

Compensation Available in a Motorcycle Accident Claim

  • Medical expenses – Past, current, and future costs related to your injuries
  • Lost wages – Income you have lost due to time off work
  • Loss of earning capacity – If your injuries affect your ability to continue in your current job
  • Pain and suffering – For the physical and emotional distress you’ve endured
  • Loss of enjoyment of life – If your injuries prevent you from participating in activities you once enjoyed
  • Property damage – Costs to repair or replace your motorcycle and gear

At Kaufman Law, we work diligently to calculate the full extent of your economic and non-economic losses. That way, we can pursue a settlement or award that covers your current expenses and provides for your future needs.

Remember, insurance companies often try to minimize payouts, especially to motorcyclists. Our experienced attorneys know their tactics and will fight to get you fair compensation. We are prepared to take your case to trial if necessary to protect your rights and secure the justice you deserve.

Deadline for Filing a Motorcycle Injury Lawsuit in Georgia

Georgia law gives injured motorcyclists just two years from the date of a crash to file their personal injury claims. Failure to initiate legal action by the two-year deadline may result in the forfeiture of your right to compensation. Consult with a knowledgeable Georgia motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible to help you complete all filings promptly and protect your right to compensation.
