About one in every ten traffic-related deaths is the result of a motorcycle accident, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. On the busy roads of Buckhead, Georgia, many of these deaths occur after the motorcycle rider sustains severe personal injury. Because of the small size and lack of protection that are characteristic of a motorcycle, these accidents are some of the most devastating, and the injured person is often left at a loss for how to handle the situation. Experienced Buckhead motorcycle accident lawyer Charles Scholle can work with you to make sure you are getting fair compensation and the legal guidance you need.
After a motorcycle accident, the victim and his family have to face the challenge of addressing financial issues, and, in some tragic cases, dealing with wrongful death matters. Many motorcycle accidents can result in personal injuries like spine injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and road rash. Victims may be entitled to medical expenses and other expenses related to your injury, and it will be much easier to go through this process with a trusted motorcycle accident lawyer by your side.
Although it is often perceived that motorcyclists are reckless drivers and may use the small build of their vehicle to travel through traffic aggressively, usually the case is actually that the driver of a car does not see the motorcycle and carelessly hits them. In these cases, the insurance company representing the other driver doesn’t want the motorcycle rider to hire an attorney. They will have their own lawyer who wants to settle quickly and for as little money as possible. By trying to settle everything right away, the insurance company will can get out of paying any financial support that may be needed to deal with severe injuries that do not surface till some time after the accident itself. Insurance companies are working strictly to make economic decisions that minimize the amount of money paid out. It is for this reason that motorcycle riders should invest in motorcycle insurance, which is required by most states and can protect an injured rider against an uninsured motorist.
