Accidents involving motorcycles are typically attributed to one main reason: Drivers fail to see the motorcyclist until it's too late. Given the surge in distracted driving behaviors, like texting behind the wheel or taking selfies or videos while driving, this is no surprise. Drivers simply aren't paying attention.
At Perrotta & Cahn, Attorneys at Law, our lawyers have decades of experience obtaining compensation for victims of motorcycle accidents. With offices in Cartersville, Calhoun and Dalton, we represent injured bikers in north Georgia and throughout the South. We also represent family members in cases of fatal accidents.
Common Motorcycle Collisions
Motorcycles accidents occur for a number of reasons, but frequent causes include:
- Head-on collisions: These occur when a car or other vehicle strikes a motorcyclist head-on. Such collisions are often fatal to the biker due to such extreme impacts.
- Rear-end collisions: These occur when a vehicle collides with the back of a motorcycle, many times because a driver fails to notice the motorcycle ahead.
- Left-hand turns: These incidents happen when a vehicle is turning left onto a street or into a parking lot in front of an oncoming motorcycle.
Our lawyers have experience with settlement negotiations but are tough in the courtroom if the need arises. Many attorneys often settle because they aren't ready for trial; they simply don't have the necessary expertise or resources. We do and are here to fight for you.
