Bicycle Accident Injuries in Georgia
Unfortunately, bicycle accidents are all too common throughout Atlanta and the suburbs. With an increasing number of distracted drivers on the road, bicyclists have reason to exercise caution on the roads. Despite Georgia's adoption of the 3-foot law that is intended to force drivers to give cyclists room to share the road, many drivers fail to leave a safe space between a cyclist and the car when passing. Many other fails to see cyclists at all, whether on the road or in an intersection.
When a car accident or truck accident involves a collision with a bicyclist, the injuries are often significant, even if the bicyclist was wearing protective gear and clothing. Common bicycle accident injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Brain injuries such as hemorrhaging or bleeding
- Spinal cord injuries
- Road rash
- Broken bones
Treatment of bicycle accident injuries is often long and may require rehabilitation and physical therapy. The costs of medical treatment can exhaust personal resources through co-pays and out-of-pocket expenses. By speaking with an Atlanta bicycle accident lawyer, you will understand your options for seeking compensation from an at-fault driver so that you can focus on your injuries. Families of loved ones killed in a bicycle accident also have legal remedies against an at-fault driver through a wrongful death suit.
