Motorcycle Accidents in Georgia
Motorcycle accidents are some of the most fatal accidents due to the vulnerability of the human body. Unlike being inside a car, motorcycles leave drivers and passengers completely exposed to outside forces.
Statistics gathered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) show that the number of motorcycle-related fatalities increased between 2014 and 2015 at almost 8.3%. These unfortunate incidents can have an immense impact on drivers and their families. Quite often, individuals involved in motorcycle accidents suffer serious injuries or death. This can have a major financial impact on drivers and their families, who are often left with stacking medical bills or even funeral expenses.
