Motorcycle accident kills 1, injures more

Motorcyclists often talk about the freedom they feel on their bikes, but they also know the potential risks. Since motorcycles offer less protection than other motor vehicles, when accidents occur, it can mean that injuries are more likely to happen and are more severe when they do. This is illustrated in a recent motorcycle accident here in Georgia that took the life of the driver and left the bike's passenger in critical condition.

Law enforcement says that the crash happened on a recent morning and involved multiple vehicles. An SUV rear-ended a car that was turning left from a highway onto a school road. That car then spun and struck a motorcycle and its sidecar. The driver of the motorcycle was thrown from the bike. He was revived twice at the scene of the accident before being airlifted to a Macon hospital.

Sadly, the man died from his injuries. His wife, who was in the motorcycle sidecar, was rushed by ambulance to the same hospital, and she remains in critical condition. The drivers of the SUV and car both had minor injuries. Authorities are still investigating the accident and say that charges against the driver of the SUV will be made eventually.

In a motorcycle accident like this, the outstanding medical bills, funeral costs and other related expenses could leave a Georgia family in deep financial stress. One way to address that burden might be for a victim or a family on behalf of a victim to file a civil claim against anyone responsible. An experienced personal injury attorney can advise victims of all of the legal rights and options that are available.
