When Should I Hire a Lawyer?
As a general rule, if at any time you do not feel comfortable handling your claim on your own, for any reason, you should consult with and hire a lawyer. Beyond that, there are no hard and fast rules. We have come up with a few of our own that we advise potential clients on to help them make a decision whether to hire us or not. Below are a few of those. If you were not injured in the accident and therefore only have a property damage claim, you likely do not need to hire a lawyer. This is because insurance companies typically do not play games with the value of the property damage.
If you were injured in the accident then it is more likely that you will want to hire an auto accident lawyer. As your claim increases in value, so does the chances that the insurance company is going to dig in and fight to minimize your claim as much as possible. So if you have bills over $10,000.00 or found out you have a major injury like a herniated disc or broken bone, it is probably time to hire a lawyer.
It’s beneficial to hire a lawyer that’s familiar with your local court systems. Knowing how the courts work, whether it’s directly in Atlanta or in Fulton County is always a benefit that is typically exclusive to lawyers.
What Are The Most Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries Our Law Firm Handles?
As previously mentioned, motorcyclists often suffer severe injuries when they are involved in an accident. This is because motorcyclists are typically thrown off of their bikes during a collision. They may be completely thrown off onto the pavement, or they may lose their balance and fall onto one side, bringing the incredible weight of the bike down on top of them.
Some of the most common injuries that motorcyclists sustain in a collision are road rash, biker’s arm, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage, crushed limbs, and fractured bones. Some of these injuries will continue to affect the victim’s life for months or years following the accident.
It’s possible that the victim may not ever recover from some of these injuries. Because of this, it’s important that you seek legal representation after a motorcycle accident to determine if you can recover compensation by filing a personal injury claim.

What Can Be Done to Prevent Motorcycle Accidents In The Future?
There are a few ways that motorcyclists can prevent accidents in the state of Georgia. Motorcyclists should always wear safety gear, including a helmet and protective clothing such as long-sleeved shirts, thick jackets, and full-length pants. Be sure that the clothes fit closely to your body. Loose clothing may blow up as you begin to ride your motorcycle and eventually obstruct your vision.
Once you’re on the road, you should be mindful of your surroundings at all times. Remember that it may be difficult for cars to see you because of your size, so it’s up to you to keep an eye on all of the vehicles around you. Be on the lookout for road hazards that could throw you off your bike, including potholes, oil slicks, or debris.
To avoid rear-end collisions, always turn your bike slightly to the right or the left when you are stopped in traffic. This way, if you see the car behind you is about to collide with you, you can quickly drive into the opening to your right or left instead of being crushed against the car in front of you.
Unfortunately, even if you follow all of these safety tips, you may still be involved in an accident caused by a negligent driver. If you have been injured, don’t hesitate to contact a motorcycle accident lawyer to discuss your case.
