Motorcycle Accidents

Athens Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Helping You Pursue the Compensation You Deserve

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, there were nearly nine million registered motorcycles on the road in 2014. In fact, the government estimates the number of deaths on motorcycles was over 27 times the number in automobiles in 2014, per mile driven. The culpable party who causes the death of a motorcycle rider or the severe injury of a motorcyclist needs to be held accountable for their wrong doings.

Our Athens motorcycle accident attorney at The Law Office of Joshua W. Branch, LLC has experience dealing with cases like these, and has the knowledge to fight for the fair compensation you deserve in these unfortunate instances.

Reach out to us today to find out how we may be able to help in a free initial consultation.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

The danger of these accidents is exacerbated by the fact that motorcycles are less stable and less visible to other drivers than cars. Not surprisingly, the most common time for fatal motorcycle accidents is between 6 p.m. and midnight, when visibility is low. Additionally, about 1,700 fatal motorcycle accidents were single-vehicle crashes in 2014, with an estimated 43 percent involving alcohol use. The effects of a motorcycle collision can create a nightmare for victims and their families, but we fight to get fair compensation and provide legal guidance for those in the Athens area.

With the high-performance capabilities of motorcycles, the most important safety precaution for riders is helmet use, which is about 67 percent effective in preventing brain injuries during a crash. Still, of the 4,295 people killed in motorcycle accidents in 2014, 62 percent were wearing helmets at the time of the crash. The open roads of Athens and Northeast Georgia offer beautiful scenes for riders, but in the event of a wreck, it is important to contact a trusted motorcycle accident attorney in Athens like Joshua W. Branch.
