Bicycle Accident Lawyers in Atlanta
Contact a Proven Georgia Personal Injury Attorney
While bicyclists have become more and more prevalent part of our roadways
and traffic flow, these travelers are still at a significant safety disadvantage
if a collision occurs. Due to a lack of significant bicycle safety features
and the exposed nature of a bicycle rider, these accidents can result
in significant and life-altering injuries.
If you are a bicyclist that has been hurt due to motorist negligence, then
you may have grounds to seek rightful compensation for your injuries. At
Goldstein & Hayes, P.C., our dedicated Atlanta bicycle accident attorneys have over 60 years of
combined legal experience fighting for compensation for injury victims.
Over that time, we have recovered millions of dollars on their behalf
and allowed them to move on with the relief and dignity they deserve.
Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents
Especially in urban areas, like Atlanta, motorists are not always careful
to check for bicyclists on the road and those riding bikes are easily
overlooked or ignored. When this happens, these bicyclists are put at
serious risk for injury.
- Common causes of bike accidents that involve driver negligence include:
- Driver failure to signal a turn or lane change
- Driver failure to yield or heed stop signs
- Driver failure to look for nearby bicycles
Distracted driving by the motorist (texting, talking, etc.)
- Impaired or intoxicated driving
When any of these happen, driver negligence has occurred and the motorist
bears responsibility for injury to the bicyclist. It is possible, however,
to hold the liable parties responsible for these injuries and ensure that
your pain and suffering is recognized by the law. The experienced injury
team at Goldstein & Hayes, P.C. is prepared to help you assess your
case and, if necessary, start aggressively pursuing the restitution.
