Georgia motorcycle accident lawyer
Motorcycle riders are at significant risk of suffering a severe injury because a motorcycle does not provide adequate protection. Without the structure of a car to protect them, a motorcycle rider’s body parts are exposed to impact from a collision. All it takes for a motorcyclist to experience grave consequences is one driver that makes a reckless decision like switching lanes without looking.
If you suffered injuries from your crash (which is very common in motorcycle accidents), you can file a claim for any expenses you face now because of the accident. Those include:
- Medical costs like hospital and doctor bills, prescription medications, physical therapy, and any other medical expenses resulting from current or future treatment of your accident injuries.
- Lost wages from missed work time because of the accident and your injuries. This includes loss of future earning capacity if you can’t return to work as you did before.
- General damages like pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of companionship (if you’re filing a wrongful death claim), or physical impairment.
