April 22, 2010: Atlanta Motorcycle Accident News:
I saw the aftermath of a motorcycle accident in Atlanta. The motorcycle accident happened on Ponce De Leon in Atlanta, Georgia. The motorcycle driver was not the scene when I arrived. Three Atlanta policemen were there with their blue lights and they directed traffic for those driving south on Briarcliff turning into Moreland Avenue. The motorcycle was still lying on the ground. Most likely an investigator was arriving on the scene to investigate the causes of the accident.
Motorcycle accidents can be deadly accidents. It is simple to say, but there is nothing there to stop you from getting hurt and protecting you from severe damage to your health. Sure, you have you motorcycle helmet, but that is not enough to stave off injury. A helmet will reduce the risk of a head injury, concussion, or mild traumatic brain injury, closed head injury or open head injury. However, you head, even in a helmet, is still liable to hit the ground or another vehicle at great force. And, of course, you body is completely exposed. If a car hits you from the side, will like break or fracture your leg/femur/ankle/foot. If you are hit from behind on you bike, you will likely get knocked off your bike completely. If you are hit head-on, serious injury and death are high probabilities. Bikes are quite dangerous. I will say that usually motorcycles are safer in the city or on city roads because people drive slower and must pay closer attention. On the other hand, a driver in the city has a lot of distractions coming there way. Many people are lost, and many are on their cell phones. In the city smaller accidents are more likely.
If you have been catastrophically injured here on Ponce De Leon or any other street, you need qualified counsel without question. The insurance company is slick. They know what they are doing and how to manipulate the situation to their benefit every time. Without doubt, not calling a Georgia lawyer would be a huge mistake for you and your family.
Trying to figure out what insurance company to contact and what to say is the first problem you will have. Did you know that there may be money right now available for that doctor you need to see, but cannot afford to do so? Did you know that you may live with someone who may be able to provide you with additional insurance? Did you know that the person that hit you may live with someone that may be able to provide additional auto insurance coverage in you accident? This are huge issues that you must know about. If you miss one of these steps, everything may go the wrong direction.
