In general, riding a motorcycle is much more dangerous than driving a vehicle for a number of reasons. Motorcycles are smaller than cars, so motorists often fail to see them before changing lanes, merging, turning, or passing through an intersection.
Additionally, motorcycles do not offer the same type of protection that cars do. There are no seatbelts or airbags on a motorcycle, so motorcyclists often suffer serious injuries if they are hit, especially when they are hit by large vehicles or trucks.
If you have sustained injuries in a motorcycle accident caused by a negligent driver, it’s recommended that you speak to an experienced motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible.

I have the Georgia Down Biker Fund, Inc and have been recommending Ted Spaulding to our injured motorcyclists for some time now. I have witnessed his compassion, knowledge and expedience in handling very sensitive issues, including death and grieving families. He can talk to some of the gruffest, profanity laced, riders that I have referred to him and they like him. No problem.- Kathy Green-Vogeley

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 Should You Do After A Motorcycle Accident To Ensure There Are No Issues With Your Case?
Call the authorities and request emergency medical assistance if anyone has been seriously injured. If no one has sustained severe injuries, you should still contact the authorities and ask that a police officer come to the scene to take a report.
Some motorcyclists will need to be transported to a hospital directly from the scene of the accident. If your injuries are not severe enough to warrant this type of emergency treatment, try to document evidence from the scene of the accident. Use your cell phone to take pictures of anything and everything at the scene, including your visible injuries, property damage, traffic signs, and road hazards.
If there are any bystanders who witnessed the accident, ask if you can jot down their contact information. You may need to get in touch with them later to discuss what they saw. Do not talk to anyone at the scene about the accident. You may say something that could be taken out of context and used to prove that you were at fault for the accident.
Motorcyclists who are not treated by emergency responders should visit a hospital or doctor right away after leaving the scene of the accident. If you fail to do this, it may affect your ability to recover compensation.
Be sure that you let the doctor know every symptom that you are experiencing, regardless of how minor you think they may be. It’s important that you have all of this information documented by a medical professional so you can prove that your injuries were sustained in the accident.
Now that you have taken care of yourself, it’s time to get in touch with one of the top motorcycle accident attorneys. Give your attorney all of the evidence that you have documented thus far and let him know exactly what happened in the accident.
The attorney will immediately begin to investigate the cause of the accident to determine liability. Then, he will handle negotiations with the insurance company to help you recover the maximum amount of compensation.
