Man and woman injured in a motorcycle accident in Georgia

Georgia motorcyclists have an advantage of many months of warm weather to enjoy riding their bikes. Unfortunately, they also may suffer a disadvantage when they collide with another vehicle. Because a bike rider has little to protect themselves when a motorcycle accident occurs, riders can be seriously injured. Depending on the severity of injuries, lives can be changed forever. Recently, a man and woman riding a motorcycle suffered injuries after the operator attempted to avoid a collision with a car.

Why it's so important for first-time riders to pick the right motorcycle

While heading to the local dealership to purchase a new car, truck or sport utility vehicle is always exciting, it often pales in comparison to the feeling that comes from shopping for a new motorcycle. That's because would-be purchasers know just how freeing and exhilarating it will ultimately be to take their new purchase out on the open road.

Georgia officials to motorists: Warmer weather means more motorcycles

Thanks to Georgia's temperate climate, many people can and do make a motorcycle their primary mode of transportation on a year-round basis. There are a considerable number of motorcyclists, however, who choose to leave their bikes parked in the garage until spring rolls around, unwilling to deal with cooler temperatures, cold rain and even frost.

How much do you know about Georgia's helmet law?

When it comes to motorcycle helmet laws, it may surprise people to learn that there is a veritable patchwork of regulations across the 50 states. Indeed, 19 states have what are known as universal helmet laws, meaning all motorcycle operators and passengers must wear a helmet, while 28 states have laws requiring helmets for specific classes of riders. The remaining three states have no laws relating to helmets whatsoever.  

How motorcyclists can stay safe on evening rides

Even though the calendar shows we are rapidly approaching the midway point of August -- and the end of summer -- there's still plenty of time left for people to enjoy their favorite outdoor activities from fishing and softball to bicycling and, of course, motorcycling.

Pursue financial relief after your motorcycle accident

Despite the warnings, signs and education, many passenger vehicle drivers still do not pay attention to motorcyclists. Even though motorcyclists adhere to the same laws and have the same rights as other drivers, they are still one of the most overlooked travelers on the road. Unfortunately, even one moment of inattention can lead to a catastrophic accident and the loss of life. And, this threat is as great for motorcyclists as it is for pedestrians. Fortunately, there is a way for these victims of inattention and negligence to receive the financial relief they deserve after an accident.

When you are at your most vulnerable, you need support

Whether you ride a motorcycle as your primary mode of transportation or you simply ride for leisure, you have done the appropriate course work to get your license and you are aware of the inherent dangers around you. For the motorcycle driver, things that present themselves as minor inconveniences to automobiles and trucks become life-threatening hazards.

Motorcycle accident leaves two dead in Georgia

Georgia motorcycle accident takes life of 32-year-old man

A motorcycle accident is often tragic, as a motorcyclist has little protection from his or her environment.
