Bicycle Accidents

Biking is a popular – and growing – healthy recreational activity as well as an effective means of transportation. The downside, in Georgia, is that bicycling-related deaths rose 28% in 2012. The Georgia Department of Transportation reported 48,000 injuries as a result of bicycling, with 662 riders dying that same year. The Georgia legislature understands the dangers of bicycling and in 2011 passed the “safe” distance provision requiring motorists to leave at least three feet of space when passing a bike. Despite these protections, bicycling accidents and fatalities occur far too frequently because automobile drivers are not diligent in looking out for bicyclists. Car and bike collisions often lead to debilitating and permanent injuries that leave cyclists and their families devastated. If you or a loved one have suffered from such an incident, rest assured you’ve come to the right place for help.
