Motorcycle accident results in critical injuries

Motorcycles are a common sight on roadways in Georgia and across America, and they come in a wide variety of sizes and styles. Those driving larger vehicles have a responsibility to keep a close eye out for them. A motorcycle accident involving other vehicles often results in severe injuries, or worse, for the motorcyclist due to the limited means of protection available to bikers. 

On the morning of Nov. 4, an accident occurred on Hwy. 34 between a motorcycle and a pickup truck. The motorcyclist was heading east when the truck, which had been stopped at the intersection, pulled onto the highway. Because the motorcyclist did not have time to slow down or dodge the truck, he crashed into the driver's side door of the pickup.

The biker suffered severe injuries as a result of the crash. He was airlifted to Atlanta Medical Center. Fortunately, there were no other reported injuries. Authorities are still investigating the crash, and charges against the truck driver are pending. 

Georgia drivers can often avoid many accidents by remaining aware of other vehicles on the roadways. Anyone who becomes a victim of a car or motorcycle accident may find it beneficial to speak with a local attorney. Those who are hurt due to the negligence of another party typically have grounds to pursue a personal injury claim for monetary damages in civil court. If an accident results in a death, the victim's immediate surviving family members may have grounds to pursue a wrongful death claim. In either circumstances, a personal injury attorney can provide ongoing advice and assistance in pursuing legal recourse.
