Motorcycle Accident Attorney in Augusta

Motorcyclists are some of the most misunderstood and misjudged users of our roads in Augusta, Georgia. When a motorcycle accident happens here or anywhere else throughout the state, most fingers tend to point toward motorcyclists.

That’s because society brands these riders as careless and reckless on the road. This unfair stereotype, sadly, is also deeply rooted in how insurance companies handle motorcycle accident claims.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident, you deserve to be heard. Importantly, you deserve the kind of compensation that will make you feel whole again.

  • What Are Some Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Augusta?

    Common causes of motorcycle accidents in Augusta include but are not limited to the following:

    • driver inattention or distraction;
    • speeding;
    • failure to yield the right of way;
    • impaired driving (driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol);
    • poor road conditions such as potholes or uneven surfaces; and
    • limited visibility of motorcycles by other motorists.
  • What Damages Can Victims of Motorcycle Accidents Recover?

    Recoverable damages in motorcycle accidents vary from case to case. That said, they generally include compensation for:

    • medical expenses for treatments related to injuries sustained in the accident;
    • lost wages if the injuries prevent you from returning to work;
    • future medical care;
    • loss of earning capacity;
    • emotional distress;
    • any long-term disability or disfigurement caused by the accident; and
    • pain and suffering.

    The extent of recoverable damages can vary based on the severity of the injuries and the specific circumstances of the accident.

  • I Lost a Loved One in a Motorcycle Accident. What Am I Entitled To?

    In such a case, you might be entitled to compensation through a wrongful death claim. This can include medical expenses incurred prior to the death, funeral and burial costs, loss of future income and benefits the deceased would have provided, loss of companionship, and emotional distress. In some cases, punitive damages may also be awarded, especially if the accident was caused by gross negligence or reckless behavior.

  • Who Can File a Motorcycle Accident Claim?

    A motorcycle accident claim can typically be filed by anyone who has suffered injuries or losses due to the accident. This includes the injured motorcyclist, passengers on the motorcycle, pedestrians, or occupants of other vehicles involved in the accident. In cases where the motorcyclist dies as a result of the accident, their family members or the executor of their estate can file a wrongful death claim.

  • Against Whom Can I File a Claim With?

    Liability for such an accident can fall on any party whose negligence or wrongdoing contributed to the accident. This often includes other drivers involved in the collision, but it can also extend to the following parties:

    • the manufacturer of the motorcycle or parts if a mechanical failure played a role;
    • a contactor in the case of lack of warning signs or other related factors; or
    • government entities responsible for road maintenance if poor road conditions were a factor.
  • What Is the Statute of Limitations on Motorcycle Accident Cases in Augusta, Georgia?

    In Augusta and throughout Georgia, the statute of limitations for filing a motorcycle accident case is two years from the date of the accident. However, if the claim is for wrongful death, the two-year period generally starts from the date of the person's death, not when the accident happened.
