What are the common causes of motorcycle accidents?

Depending on the underlying cause, a motorcycle accident case can involve numerous legal issues. The skillful Georgia personal injury attorneys of HLM have handled a variety of motorcycle accident cases, involving such causes as:

  • Motorcycle defects. Many motorcycle accidents are caused by deficiencies in the bike. Defective tires, brakes, or other mechanical parts may cause the crash or prevent the motorcyclist from controlling the vehicle in an emergency situation.
  • Defective and dangerous roadways. Defective roadways create dangerous conditions for motorcycle operators. Inadequate shoulders, crumbling road surfaces, or slippery conditions can make it impossible for motorcyclists to safely handle curves or recover when pushed off the side of the road by other negligent drivers.
  • Negligent drivers. When traversing the roadways, motorcyclists are easily impacted by the actions of others. All too often, vehicle operators drive distracted while eating, putting on makeup, or talking on a cell phone. Even one second of distraction can lead to an injurious motorcycle accident.

A knowledgeable Atlanta motorcycle accident lawyer understands the challenges of proving fault in any accident and works diligently to secure the compensation your injuries deserve.

Quality representation for a variety of motorcycle injuries

The potential severity of a motorcycle accident can lead to various types of life-changing injuries. HLM lawyers represent many of the most common motorcycle crash injuries, including:

  • Brain injury. Though motorcyclists wear helmets, this protective headgear is not foolproof. The impact of a crash can still result in injury to the head, from a temporary concussion to a debilitating coma.
  • Biker’s arm. Motorcyclists are often thrown from their bikes during an accident. When this occurs, they generally reach their arms out in an effort to brace for impact. As a result, the arm can be severely injured by a broken bone or nerve damage.
  • Road rash. This occurs when the impact of the accident causes an operator to slide across the roadway. The pavement can scrape away the cyclist’s clothing and even skin, potentially causing burning, infection, or nerve damage.

Through consultations with your medical specialists and life care planners, we work to understand the extent of your injuries and the impact the injuries will have on your future. Our accomplished Atlanta motorcycle injury attorneys build a case that helps you recover the compensation necessary to cope with the financial burdens associated with these serious injuries.
