We help motorcyclists to protect their rights after an accident

Riding a motorcycle is an exercise in trade-offs. In exchange for the benefits of greater maneuverability, better fuel economy and a greater sense of freedom riders must be cognizant of the potential hazards, of which the most significant is what can happen to you if you get into a collision with a car or a truck. The same lightweight characteristics of your motorcycle that contribute to the benefits above can turn into serious or even deadly drawbacks when there is nothing between you and the road but the clothes you wear and the helmet on your head.

The reasons why another driver might hit you are many, but car-motorcycle accidents frequently result from the car driver never even seeing you until it is too late. The reasons for that, in turn, can lead to questions of possible negligence: careless driving, distracted driving, not paying sufficient attention in conditions including darkness and bad weather, speeding and otherwise not complying with traffic laws, signs and signals, or driving while under the influence of drugs and alcohol can all form the basis of a negligence-based legal action in a Georgia civil court case.

To prove a cause of action for negligence, you will need to demonstrate that a number of things have taken place. The easiest of these may be physical and possibly mental or emotional harm that you suffered. Broken bones, contusions, traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries, burns and more can not only lead to expensive medical treatment costs but also to time lost from work and damaged relationships with your loved ones. Your motorcycle, too, will probably incur substantial damage. All of these are potentially compensable if you are successful in laying out the elements of a negligence claim.

At the Dozier Law Firm, we are experienced with settling motorcycle accident cases with defendants and insurers, and with litigating these cases if the settlement offer proves inadequate. From the accident investigation through pretrial preparation required to present the most compelling arguments to use in negotiations or at trial, we know what to look for, what questions to ask, and how to zealously represent our clients through every step of resolving their claims and securing compensation for their injuries and property loss.
