Motorcyclists will likely tell you that when it comes to getting to where they want to go, they wouldn't have it any other way. The responsiveness, the maneuverability, the fuel economy and more are things that traveling in a car cannot match. But there is no such thing as an unalloyed blessing, and when it comes to traffic accidents the same factors that make riding a motorcycle such a joy can turn into the rider's worst enemies.
Simply put, when a car collides with you on a motorcycle the car has all of the advantages. What you have between you and the pavement – your clothing, and your helmet – is what you have. No seatbelt. No airbags. No anti-lock braking. And what that means is that there is a very real risk that you will suffer one or more serious injuries: broken bones, head and spinal cord injuries are but a few of the wounds that you can receive.
What make these injuries even more serious is the long-term consequences that they can have. Medical costs to treat brain injuries or spinal cord damage can be back-breaking even if you have health insurance; and if you are prevented from going back to work the loss of income can multiply the problems that you can have covering your medical bills.
If the accident was at least partly the fault of the other driver, one way to ameliorate the financial impact is to seek compensation from that person and his or her insurer. To accomplish this, having an experienced motorcycle plaintiff's attorney on your side can make a key difference when it comes to negotiating with an insurance company or preparing a personal injury case for trial. And at the Dozier Law Firm, that is what we do for our motorcyclist clients in Georgia. From the investigation of the accident scene to integrating accident reconstructionist and medical experts into your case for compensation, we make sure that your chances of receiving the maximum compensation possible is itself maximized.
