Additionally, they are entitled to compensation for losses that result from those injuries. Those losses can include everything from a loss of quality of life to an inability to perform daily functions, to the loss of an activity the injured may have earlier enjoyed.

Motorcycle Accident Attorney in Duluth

In one year, more than 100,000 motorcycle drivers or passengers were injured in traffic accidents in the United States. In that same year, roughly 5,000 motorcyclists were killed in traffic accidents. Some of those motorcycle accidents occurred on Abbotts Bridge Road and Peachtree Industrial Road in Duluth, Georgia.

If you have been involved in an accident, Duluth motorcycle accident attorney Charles Scholle can give you the guidance you need. The repercussions of a motorcycle accident can often be overwhelming, ranging from injuries like bone fractures and road rash to spinal cord injuries and brain damage. Although it may be difficult to think logically after such a traumatic incident, the best thing to do immediately following the motorcycle accident is to take note of the circumstances, go to a doctor even if you do not feel you are in serious pain, and contact a trusted motorcycle accident lawyer. At Scholle Law, your motorcycle case will be assessed, and you will receive legal guidance from an adept attorney who has experience dealing with motorcycle accidents throughout Georgia.

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 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, those motorcycle riders should invest in motorcycle insurance, which is required by most states and can protect an injured rider against an underinsured or uninsured motorist.

If you or someone you know has been involved in a motorcycle accident in the Duluth area, contact Charles Scholle so you can schedule a consultation and begin the process of recovering the money that you deserve.

Duluth Truck Accident Attorney

As part of Gwinnett County, Duluth has its share of truck accidents due to its proximity to the larger metro area. When a truck accident happens, Duluth truck accident lawyers at Scholle Law are the most experienced in the area with the highest ratings for ethics and excellence in law practice. We can help.

Truck crashes can be more severe than many other types of accidents between motor vehicles. These often fatal crashes are so dangerous because there are such great disparities in weight and size between other vehicles and trucks. Often trucks are involved in accidents in which two trucks collide, but as a result, they impact other vehicles on the road with them. There is no doubt that most people do not leave home thinking that a truck will hit their car or hurt them. But this happens every day across the country.

The reasons for truck crashes are varied. One fact does not change. That is, trucks are large and as such, they require more space to stop. When a truck is traveling at a high rate of speed, and in fact is exceeding the safest speed for road and weather conditions, or is simply going faster than the speed limit, dangerous consequences can not only be anticipated but are likely. What happens when you are the vehicle in front of or near a truck that is traveling too fast, is carrying heavy cargo or is tailgating? The answer is very clear and simple for an insurance company or a jury or a judge to understand. The result will often be that the vehicle in front of the speeding truck is hit by the truck in various circumstances. If there is something in the road, like an unexpected large piece of debris or if that vehicle needs to stop because other cars are stopped in front --- the truck will have a difficult time stopping before striking your car or SUV or pick up truck. And not only this, the accident could have been avoided had the truck not been traveling at excessive speeds.

How often have you been traveling on a road or highway and sensed a truck coming too fast behind your vehicle? How often have you been driving on a highway or turnpike on which large trucks travel and have had a truck bearing down on your vehicle for no good reason but carelessness and poor judgment? Who should be held responsible when that truck hits your vehicle and causes you harm or causes harm to your passengers, your children or other adults traveling in your vehicle? The responsible parties should and can be held legally responsible for your injuries, your inability to work or earn a living temporarily or permanently, the injuries to your passengers. The truck driver, the truck owner or the operating company that is responsible for the truck and the driver can be held under the law to answer for these injuries and to pay for them. Generally, the insurance carrier that insures these people or entities will be the party who must pay your damages. The only way to get these damages is to negotiate a settlement with them or take them to trial.
